Homes for Our Troops
We installed a free garage door and opener for SSgt Omar Milan and Homes for Our Troops. It is a huge blessing to be a part of his story and his journey.
During his third tour on Jan. 9, 2012, Marine Staff Sergeant Omar Milan, an Explosive Ordnance Disposal Specialist, was conducting post-blast analysis in support of the 2nd Battalion, 6th Marines in the Nawa District of Afghanistan, when he was in an improvised explosive device (IED) explosion. The blast resulted in the loss of SSgt Milan’s right leg, significant injuries to his left leg, loss of fingers on his left hand and damage to his right arm among other injuries.
After enduring 40 surgeries and physical therapy for two years, Omar was medically retired in 2014. He now lives with his wife, Michelle, and their two daughters in Texas and says a home adapted to his injuries will help him and his family tremendously.
Omar is thankful to everyone who will contribute to his build project. “My family and I are forever grateful for everything and every single person who make this possible.”
International Door Association Humanitarian Award

The IDA is recognized as the industry leading organization for garage doors in all of North America. Nick and Nathan McGregor were recognized for their efforts in the Hurricane Harvey, and Plano Overhead was commended for ongoing charitable donations, community involvement, and humanitarian efforts as well!
Habitat for Humanity
We have done a number of projects for Habitat for Humanity over the years in several cities. We love our community, and do our part to give back whenever we can! The pictures above show our most recent project we performed in Dallas. The mission statement of Habitat for Humanity is “Seeking to put God’s love into action, Habitat for Humanity brings people together to build homes, communities and hope”. Homes are built using volunteer labor and materials, such as ours at Plano Overhead Garage Door.
North Texas Food Bank
It’s important to remind ourselves that even though we live in a Metroplex in one of the wealthiest countries in the history of the world, and have one of the highest standards of living of almost anywhere in the world; there is plenty of need right here in our backyard. Children and seniors are particularly in need in our communities, and it really doesn’t take much to make a huge impact!
2017 Hurricane Harvey
Our owners spent time in Houston helping rescue Houston evacuees and distributing supplies. They spent several days in the 40 inches of torrential rain helping restore normalcy.
2016 Rowlett Tornado
The leading magazine in our industry, ‘The International Door & Operator Industry’ by the International Door Association, published our story about the disaster relief and charitable work we performed following the Rowlett tornado.
Founder’s Park (Behind Wylie High School). Many years ago, we provided labor and financial support for the construction of Founder’s Park in Wylie. Imagine how many little feet have run across this playground!
We are honored to receive national recognition for our International Supertech Day celebrations each year. We appreciate how hard our Certified Service Professionals work and this gives us a great opportunity to celebrate their efforts!
