About Us


Carl’s Door Service was started in 1965 by Carl Whitacre to provide sales and service to the emerging residential community in Forest Hill, MD. Currently owned and operated by Carl’s children and with a third generation currently on staff we are long time members of our community. What was once a one person operation has grown to multiple installation teams and service trucks!

We have worked hard as a business to distinguish ourselves as a “best in class” organization by obtaining all necessary business certifications which include:

  • Liftmaster Certified Safety Check Dealer
  • MD MHIC #6046
  • PA MHIC # 047581
  • IDEA Accredited & Certified Company
  • IDEA master technician and IDEA certified technicians on staff
  • Clopay Master Authorized Dealer
  • Amarr Dealer
  • MD Lead Safe Certification # NAT65148-1
  • Three time award winner of Angie’s List Super Service Award 2009-2011
  • BBB certified with A+ rating
  • Member in good standing – Harford County Chamber of Commerce

We carry all necessary vehicle, liability and workman’s compensation insurance. We encourage you to ask our competitors to “kick their credentials” as well.

For all of our accomplishments we are dedicated to providing “down home” customer service and a delightful experience whether by phone or visit by one of our professional installers or service personnel.

We encourage you to call with your questions or to schedule an appointment. Or just stop by to visit the pets in the office.
