Brrrr….It’s Cold!

Grandpa isn’t the only one moving slow in the winter…When the temperatures decrease so does the performance of your garage door. Did you know your garage door is the largest operating object on your house with over 20 moving parts!  We recommend our 40 point inspection on your overhead door and garage door operator for optimal operation when you need it the most.  Call 775-356-6601 to set up your appointment today.

We Like Company!

We sure like to have company.  We appreciate it when folks stop by to say “hi”.  So when the folks from Amarr came by last week to show us their new overhead doors; we were excited.  You can view Amarr’s new Vista Fullview Aluminum Doors at: 

So, come by our showroom at 171 S. 18th St., in Sparks, NV and see our doors.  We have full-size, operating displays that you can touch, run up and down, and listen to.  We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!

Have you seen Frosty?

Thompson Garage Doors was awarded “1st Place Float” at the City of Sparks Hometowne Christmas Parade sponsored by Intuit. “Characters of Christmas Past” was the theme for the 24th annual event, held last month.

Thompson’s float featured Frosty the Snowman, pulled by a 1914 Cadillac 7-passenger touring car, followed by a 1929 Cadillac, and a 1920 Pierce Arrow model 48. Frosty, with his hat, corn cob pipe, button nose, & 2 eyes made out of coal; was joined on the corner of the Thompson float by a traffic cop and a group of children.

Since the parade, Frosty has taken up residence in the Thompson showroom, on S. 18th St. in Sparks. If you missed seeing him in the parade, come by 171 S. 18th Street, Sparks, NV and see Frosty before he melts away!
