The Original Owners - Barry and Peggy Georges with their grandkids.
Barry and Peggy started this company over 35 years ago with the intention of being able to provide for their family. They didn't realize that their employees would become like family to them, and after 35 years of service, they decided to retire and allow their son Dusty Georges to run the company. Here at Garage Door Specialists and All About Doors in Morganton, North Carolina, we really are a family owned and operated business and intend to always be that way!
PEGGY GEORGES (9-29-1949 ~ 2-08-2019)
She will be greatly missed! She was a wonderful mother, wife, and grandmother to all that knew her.
Lane Jones - Co-Owner of All About Doors, LLC.
He started his career in 1990 working in Charlotte, NC at a family owned garage door business. Lane started as a warehouse helper pulling and stocking orders. He quickly moved up through the ranks to become a lead man within 2 years as a commercial installer and service technician. He remained in that position for 10 plus years, when he was given the opportunity to apply for the position of Operations Manager of a sister company. Lane then transferred that knowledge to become Operations Manager of a locally owned garage door company in Catawba County, NC. In 2007, Lane decided to open All About Doors. Lane and his wife, Therese, ran All About Doors for five years out of their home and garage along with their sons Casey and Alex Jones. During the early years of All About Doors, Lane and Dusty became friends and eventually talked about the idea of merging of the companies. In January 2012 Lane and Dusty opened All About Doors, LLC as the commercial division of Garage Door Specialists. On the rare days that Lane is not working, he enjoys spending time with his family and granddaughter.
