Default Any recommendations for garage door opener installer?

I recently moved into a new house, with a two-car garage. One bay has an automatic opener, but it is acting a bit flaky. The other bay is manual. I would like to have both bays set up with new, automatic openers.

Any recommendations for an installer? I am in Dunkirk, Maryland, south of Annapolis, and east of Upper Marlboro.

Any recommendations on brands? I have had good luck with LiftMaster products.

We used Crews Garage Door in Manassas (they came to Potomac, would probably come to Dunkirk). They replaced our door and opener - the brand of opener they use is "Linear." Our old opener was actually not very old and worked well, but only raised to 7' on our 8' door and upgrading it was as much as a new opener. Our ceiling isn't very high, but they got the rail almost 6" higher using regular equipment. None of the other companies could get it much higher than it was. Crews was very highly rated in Consumer Checkbook.

Did a great job on our Liftmaster side lift opener and wall/ceiling hug track relocation.

We have used these guys twice in two different houses. Replacement doors, high lift and new opener. Very happy with the work and cost.

I do all my own work on doors. From some extent from my dealings with Overhead Door. Zero stars.....
