I contacted Germain several months ago inquiring about a “Man Door” incorporated into my garage door for access to my new Pilates Studio. I obtained several quotes from other local companies and they always came back saying that they didn’t do this, or it was difficult to find or install, or when I did get a quote it was outrageous. Thinking Germain would not be interested in coming to the Niagara area since he is near Windsor, I thought I would try. I am so glad that I did, Germain had many recommendations since I really didn’t know what I would need for our climate. We changed the order several times and he was very patient, we finally settled on a design and colour and placed our order for a price that was less than half of the other companies in my area who were willing to “try and do a Man Door”. It took 6 weeks for the door to be manufactured, Germain’s Brother Dan and his associate came to my home, took down the old door and rail to dispose and installed the new door in only 2 hours. To say that I am pleased with the service, product and result is an understatement. I would not hesitate in recommending Germain to any of my friends and family, it was an easy and seamless transition to my new door, I am proud to say that I have a WalkThru Garage Door. I get many compliments, my customers can now access my studio through the front and don’t have to come into the house. I love my new door and it lets a lot of light into my studio, very happy! Thank you Germain.

Absolutely LOVE our doors from Walk Thru!! We needed custom walk through doors for our barn venue project. Customer service was top notch! Germain walked us through each step, answering all of our questions and giving recommendations. The process from ordering through delivery was seamless. The doors are absolutely perfect! Our installer was very impressed with the high quality of the doors and the extreme care in crating them for shipping. Would highly recommend this company to anyone!

We own a townhouse with a basement apartment, however there is no separate entrance. Being that it's a townhouse, we were unable to add another exterior door. When we saw the walkthru garage door, we immediately thought how perfect this would be as an alternate solution. Now that it's installed, we could not be happier. The door is both beautiful and functional and dealing with WalkThru Garage Doors was very easy. Germain kept us well informed as to the status of our door.

In order to comply with state building requirements in finishing our basement, we needed to provide a regular door exit from our three car garage. Rather than spend tens of thousands of dollars in designing and installing a walkout egress, we decided to install a garage door with a pass-through entryway.

Of all the vendors that provide Pass-through doors, Walkthru provided not only the best product, but the best customer service and communication as well. Germain was very detailed in stepping us through the process, providing pictures and additional details on certain points. He was responsive during the shipping and installation process. Everything turned out exactly as described, from shipping to installation.

Thank you WalkThru!

We had been using our garage door as our main entrance for years and leaving the garage door open most of the time we were home. This lead to moisture problems when it would rain and leaves in the garage in the fall. I had considered adding a door but that would have required moving my electrical service. Then I found WalkThru Doors. I had my local garage door installer measure and order the door for me since I live in Texas. The build quality on this door is incredible. The shipping container was the same high quality. You can tell someone really cares about the product. I have been very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend WalkThru Doors. About 2 weeks ago I had to replace a window in the door. That is when I met Germain and found out about their incredible customer service. Germain provided the window at no cost to me other than shipping. Thanks for a wonderful product and outstanding customer service!!

We were so happy to find a company to work with to purchase a residential garage door with a pass through. We could not find any quality doors in the US and saw the website for walk thru.
Germain offered amazing customer service with prompt responses to all questions, helping guide us throughout the process, locating a quality installer and delivering a high quality door that met all our needs.

Extremely satisfied with our choice and highly recommend this company to anyone seeking this solution for their home.

I really needed a separate exit for the in law addition unit. Instead of using the garage door every day, I was looking for a walk through the garage for a few months. I seached online, and called some company, which either Couldnt do it or charged very expensive. I am glad I found Gaudet’s WalkThru. Professional solutions just with a few pictures. Half price less than what I had found. Takking to Germain, the owner, was sincere and efficient. The door is becoming the main entrance to the house for my family, make a big house like a two-family house. My installer said he had never seen this door installed residentially, and he took a lot of pictures for his ADs too. Good quality, everything fits well, just the key board for the password does not work very well now, I should fix it later.
Thank you for the good product!

I needed a simple, safe access and exit through the garage, but without having to handle opening of overhead door so frequently, especially in case of power outage, or some other emergency. I am glad I found Gaudet’s WalkThru. It definitely is the solution I was looking for. Communication with Germain, the owner, was sincere, efficient and he was able to accommodate every need. The door is already serving its purpose. It is becoming the main entrance to the house not only for me, but for everybody else in the house. Good quality, sturdy, everything fits well, no missing parts, installed in less than a day. It is perfect and everything I expected it to be!
Thank you for the good product!

After 3 weeks of use, the door amazes and pleases each time we "walk thru" it --and that's often. The detailed measurements Germain requested led to perfect fit and function. Very patient with all my questions. Electronic keypad is a must. One of the better home improvements we've ever done. Love it!

When we added on to an existing home and made the garage a tuck-under, we failed to include an outside access door. Because of this, every time we needed to go from the garage to the outdoors, we would have to open the garage door. Freedom at last! With our WalkThru garage door we can fill the bird feeders, take out the garbage, and do yard work without wasting electricity OR having a huge hole in the side of the house, losing heat or cooling. It is smooth, looks great, and even the color is an exceptable match to the other garage door. We are very pleased!

I ordered the walk-thru Garage Door just about a year ago. This product is great and looks as new as the day I received it. The door itself is sturdy and strong. Germain is the name of the salesperson I dealt with. He is very knowledgeable and was able to hook us up with an installer.

I am 100% satisfied with the work WalkThru Garage Doors Inc. did for me. Germain took the time to explain, in detail, the processes involved. The door was ready to be installed in roughly four weeks. Germain’s brother Dan and his assistant did great work, very professional and left the place spotless. I would highly recommend WalkThru Garage Doors Inc. to anyone requiring this type of garage door. Money well spent!

Although it was never my intention, I must have proved to be one of the most difficult customers Germain has ever met. I put what seemed like a million questions to Germain before ordering my door, and he answered all my questions patiently. Then, last minute I changed my mind about the door color. Turns out Germain had already ordered the door. But, upon my request, he was kind enough to order a brand new door in the color of my choice. He agreed to put up with the headache and expense of storing the original door until some unknown time when another purchaser would buy it off of him. He was quick to reply to my many inquiries and although firm with regards to his pricing, he was fair. You are in good hands with Germain, and his brother who installed my door.

1. Builder said NO to a pedestrian door 10 years ago.
2. You can heat your garage in the winters and NOT lose massive heat.
3. Leading BC garage door companies all refused and one asked for $9,000!
4. Measure right and your door will be 100% perfect.
5. Packed in a solid container.
6. Every installer you call will want the job and take recognition for what they did NOT build.
7. Easy access in and out without any noise.
8. Added a wireless doorbell that rings into the bar downstairs.
9. Easy to install like any other garage door but thicker and stronger.
10. Customer service from Germain was second to none.

Finally, I installed a second lock for better security on the door and tighter close.

After months of searching for what I wanted, I came across Walk-Thru and they were able to make what I needed for my house. Germain walked me through every step including what to measure on my existing door that I was replacing. He was able to save me money as well by using the rails from my old door. He sent me progress pics of my door being built and let me know when it shipped. I found my own installer and everything worked out perfectly. I get many compliments on my garage door. If you want a garage door with a man door built in, Walk Thru Garage Doors is the place....even if it has to be an international order.

I recently had a door installed by Walk thru doors inc. and was impressed with the finish product converted from my old door. Thanks to Germain and Dan for all their help and advice with the quality product they installed.

I recently purchased and had installed two garage doors from WalkThru Garage Doors. One garage door had a center-opening walkthru door, with the new, low-profile threshold design. The other was a matching door without the walkthru door. From beginning to end, online purchase through installation, the process was efficient and seamless. There were no installation surprises and both doors were installed in less than a day. The installers commented several times about how well the doors were packaged and shipped and the exceptional quality of the doors and the installation hardward. Now that they have been installed, they operate beautifully and meet all my expectations. I could not be more pleased.

Our special-order, walk-through garage door was just installed this week and we couldn't be more pleased. Based on the Frenchporte Door style, it provides the convenience of the walk-through we were looking for in addition to a very attractive and unique appearance. Germain kept us informed throughout the process and answered our questions and addressed our concerns at every turn. We highly recommend.

We were very lucky when we found your company. We had called every garage door company around, in our area in Alabama, looking for a walk thru to no avail, then we found Mr. Gaudet and WalkThru Garage Doors on the internet. Mr Gaudet walked us through every step from start to delivery. We contacted Posten's Overhead Door Company in Pinson Alabama and they sent an installer out to install the door. The installer was able to get the door up with no problems, even though it was the first walk thru door he had ever installed. the door looks and fits great. We are 100% satisfaied with our door and your product!

I never thought this was possible and then I found WalkThru Garage Doors.
My experience with WalkThru Garage Doors because of Germain Gaudet was exceptional. It is real important to not only receive a finished product, but I find that it is a real value when a company is willing to educate the consumer through each step that is being taken. I am now looking into 2 doors for our new home and have already had the privilege of a genuine conversation to help steer our direction with Germain. Wow… if only all businesses cared about their customers in the same fashion!

It was a tremendously affirming experience to source a Walk Thru door from you. The design and vision of the product is only matched by the care and personal attention you offer to the customer, it's all a truly exceptional communicative and supportive process at every stage.

This door is a 3-panel 9ft wide and installed in a common construction block style home. It is one of the first of its kind to be installed in Florida, and causes favorable comment and interest. It was custom-built to the precise measurements we supplied, delivered as promised and installation was straightforward.

It is the best investment we made to this house as it provides a stylish (and well-insulated - which is just as important as in Canada!) solution to the problem of a garage that is presently in use as a work/storage room. Now the space can be considered as instantly convertible between garage and accommodation, preserving the amenity of both.

For our area we also needed a hurricane bracing kit on standby and jackshaft style lifter will complete the package by providing s space saving option to eliminate 'the third rail.'

We wish to thank Germain and all at the company for what they do and equally, the attentive way they do it. You can have confidence that all the similar reviews here are true and reflect an exceptional product and service.

sorry it's taken so long to get this to you. Here are some photos and a statement about the Walk Thru Garage Door I purchased, thanks again for your product and support, I'm extremely happy with it.

I had a predicament: my wife wouldn't back her car into the garage for fear of hitting the garage door or my car! We had a double car garage with a 16ft wide overhead door, plus a conventional walk through door into the garage, but we only ever parked one car inside - it was just too tight to get 2 modern wide cars in! So I started looking around for a solution.
I came across Walk-Thru Garage Doors, it looked ideal. I got rid of the conventional door, which allowed me to open up the garage car entrance to 18ft, I bought and installed a fully insulated 18ft Walk-Thru Garage Door which now allows us to park both cars with ease and we still had the convenience of a pedestrian walk through door into the garage. Another added bonus is that the door is very well insulated and keeps the garage cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Thankyou Walk-Thru Garage Doors for your excellent well-made product which was delivered and your great customer support!

Best Regards,
Scott Gibb

My wife found the Walk Thru Door on the internet. We were constantly opening and closing a noisy garage door that shook the entire house. We knew we needed to either have major construction or find a garage door with a door in it. There was no other way to get out the back of the house to visit our son and his family who were only 50 yards away. We found Germain Gaudet and his company, he assessed our needs, we gave the measurements, 6 weeks later he delivered the door personally. It was installed this week. Not only was it convenient, but with the insulation and the proper sizing it transformed our garage into a new room. We deeply appreciate the high quality of the door, the insulation makes a huge difference, and the walk thru door makes life much simpler and more pleasant. Thanks

Great product. On budget. Ahead of schedule. Those words are music to any contractors' ears. When we had the daunting task of providing (3) carriage-style garage doors for the construction of a carriage house in the historical preservation district of Evanston, Illinois, we turned to Germain and his team. Are we glad we did. The doors fulfilled the stringent criteria of the preservation committee, provided the required R-value and pleased the heck out of our client. And, oh by the way, the walk thru function incorporated in one of the doors works flawlessly. Our thanks to Germain and the people at Walk Thru Doors for being part of a successful project.
