Dan's Garage Door & Fence is an established family owned and operated company with over 43 years of experience providing garage doors, entry doors, and garage door openers to homeowners and builders throughout the Alton/Godfrey and greater Riverbend area.


Calling himself "The Door Keeper", Dan started his garage door business in 1977 working out of his home-garage in East Alton, Illinois.  He would hang garage doors during the day and work midnights as a full-time assembly line worker for Ford Motor Company in Hazelwood, Missouri.  He retired from Ford Motor Company in 2006.

Dan with Van, Early Years

In the spring of 2013, Dan took the plunge and moved his business out of his home-garage and opened his first store and showroom in Godfrey, Illinois.  Two yeas later, in 2015, a second showroom was opened in Edwardsville, Illinois.  In 2019, to better serve our customers, Dan's Garage Door Service combined both showrooms in to a brand new larger location in Godfrey, Illinois.  Little did we know, this would set us up for what would become the biggest move of all - in January 2020, shortly before Covid-19 shut everything down, Dan's Garage Door Service purchased Alton Fence and Door.

Alton Fence & Door was first established in 1976. The original owners were Roy and Thelma Ferguson. In 2009, the couple retired and sold their family owned and operated business to another local resident, Ron Garner, owner of Garner's Tree Service. In January 2020, Garner sold the fence and door business to Danny Rowe, who is no stranger to the garage door industry. Since 1977, Dan and his family have owned and operated Dan's Garage Door Service.  


When Dan acquired Alton Fence and Door,  he changed the name of both companies and created Dan's Garage Door & Fence. "We may have a new name, but it's still the same great service you have come to know and depend on for over 43 years", said Dan's daughter, Tina, who has been managing the family business since 2013. 

Dan's Garage Door & Fence is excited for this new opportunity to provide sales and service for fencing, gates, flags and carports. A huge showroom is located at 5501 Godfrey Road, in Godfrey Illinois, with garage doors, automatic garage door openers, fencing and gates on display. They also have a section of the showroom set aside as a parts store for those those do-it-yourself projects.
