about us

From our garage to yours.

Overhead Door Company of Joliet (Formerly Middleton Overhead Doors) was founded by Mark Middleton in 1978 and operated out of a two-car garage on Kelly Avenue in Joliet, IL. As the business grew, it became necessary to expand. Mark rented a building on Jefferson Street in Joliet 1984, and his father, Bill, came on board to assist with sales. Continued success led the company to move to its current location on Meadow Avenue in 1987. In 1994, we had the honor of becoming brand distributors for Overhead Door™, a leading provider of overhead and garage door systems. A family business from the beginning, Mark’s son, Matt, joined the team in 2001.

Today, we provide our customers with products and services that range from residential garage doors to commercial overhead doors and openers. Most of our employees have been with us for 20+ years, and we have the backing of a nationwide network of more than 450 authorized Overhead Door™ Distributors, so you can trust us to provide the solutions, service and support you need for your home or business.
