Randall Laurich, from North Sewickley Township, started this locally owned business by installing and servicing garage doors since January of 1986. Randy mentored countless young men, Dave Evans being one of them.
Dave started working at Laurich's his freshman year in college. Four years later, Dave was persistent in working for Laurich's Garage Doors. Randy confidently mentioned the idea for Dave to purchase the business, but Dave was set on graduating from school. Dave graduated from Westminster College in 2010 with his degree in Criminal Justice, anticipating a job in his field. While waiting for an opportunity to enter the Police Academy, Dave continued working for Randy full-time. He applied skills from business courses to his work, along with his knowledge from a major in Sociology. Overtime, Dave found a sincere interest in helping customers with their garage door needs. He enjoyed the challenges of installations and repairs, the opportunity to talk with his customers on the job, and the chance to make a difference in people’s homes.
The time came again, when Randy offered Dave the chance to buy the business. Considering this opportunity with his wife, Dave finally decided that he would like to move forward in purchasing the company which he has worked for 8 years. Since 2012, Dave and his wife worked on establishing a way to purchase the business. The contract process began in 2013 and the date to take over was decided July 1, 2014.
Randy and his wife have been a huge support to Dave and his wife, and continue to be mentors with this new endeavor. The name of the company has changed to Evans' Garage Doors, but the success of this business will continue its reputation of technical expertise, quality domestic products, prompt delivery and customer satisfaction. Evans' Garage Doors provides sales, service and installation of garage doors and commercial and residential openers.
Amarr, Clopay and Wayne-Dalton are among the brand names offered. In the world of electric garage door openers, Allstar remains one of the leading brands available for purchase, along with LiftMaster and Genie.
