Under the guidance and training of a great teacher, Steve Manning began learning the craft of repairing and replacing garage doors in Pittsburgh in 1979. He credits his mentor at Garage Door Doctor with instilling a strong work ethic in him, which he carried forward in his career. In 1984, Steve moved to Brandon, Florida, to start his own garage door business with his aunt and another business partner. Two years later they parted ways, and he spent the next 12 years as a maintenance manager at a local company.
In 1998, Steve decided to start his own garage door business again. Master Garage Door Company is a family-owned and operated business in Brandon, Florida, servicing both residential and commercial garage doors. As a sanctioned trainer of the International Door Association (IDA), Steve is committed to a code of conduct that he exemplifies in his own business and trains others to follow as well.
Steve credits a few key factors with his company’s success – he listens to his client’s needs and only recommends products and services that meet those needs, he treats every client fairly and with great respect, he focuses on a 15-mile service area to provide the fastest service to his clients, and he only uses premium products that he knows will last and he can proudly stand behind when offering them to his clients.
Steve and his family love to travel and have helped establish congregations in the U.S. and abroad in countries like Mexico, Honduras, and Israel. He’s a musician at heart and plays guitar. His family enjoys going to the beach or the mountains for their vacations. Steve and his wife, Tawnie, have been married since 1986 and have two daughters, Melissa and Valerie.
2 Chronicles 29:3 - He in the first year of his reign, in the first month, opened the doors of the house of the LORD, and repaired them.
