Winner of 2013 Women’s Choice Award in the Garage Door Category for a Second Year in a Row

DALLAS  — For a second consecutive year, Overhead Door has received the Women’s Choice Award by WomenCertifiedŽ for America’s Best for Home in the garage door category. This award designation is based on a national survey of more than 5,000 women who were asked to select the brands they would most likely recommend to others.

“Overhead Door is honored to earn the Women’s Choice Award and to be considered the brand of choice among women,” said Dennis Stone, president and CEO of Overhead Door. “The award validates Overhead Door’s commitment to our distributors and our collective ability to deliver professional service and high performance products. The Women’s Choice Award represents the earned trust that women put in our brand.”

According to a 2012 Fleishman Hillard Study, today’s female consumer values the opinion of others and most feel compelled to help others make smart purchases. As a result, more brands like Overhead Door are focusing on delivering a customer experience centered on the female shopper’s experience.

The Women’s Choice Award has set the standard for helping consumers make wise purchases by identifying brands that are most recommended and trusted by women and those that deliver a customer experience worthy of recommendation. Overhead Door continues to remain among this leading group of trusted brands. 

“The Women’s Choice Award honors brands that have demonstrated exceptional service in meeting the needs of women and that receive an extraordinary recommendation rating by women,” said Delia Passi, WomenCertifiedŽ, Inc., founder and author of Winning the Toughest Customer: The Essential Guide to Selling to Women.  “Recognizing Overhead Door as the top garage door brand helps ‘women guide other women’ to make smart choices.”
