Graves Overhead Doors: Garage Door Experts in Duluth GA

Rooted in Service and Dedication to Customers

Graves Overhead Doors opened for business in 1998. However, our story begins long before that and is rooted in service and dedication to our customers since 1977. The background of our inception starts first with a young man who had nothing to start out with except dreams of creating a new life, a strong set of values, and a solid work ethic that he had learned growing up. Fred Graves relocated from a rural East Tennessee town to the big city of Atlanta. After starting a family, he launched his first enterprise in 1966, Graves Construction Company, and began a long career in commercial building. Mr. Graves built many of the first Dairy Queen restaurants in Atlanta. He furthered his experience in construction by building houses into the early '70s.

Entrepreneurial Spirit


Company Headquarters

In the mid-'70s, he moved to the suburbs just north of Atlanta. Realizing the future growth potential of the area, his entrepreneurial spirit shifted into high gear. At the same time, energy prices were soaring. So, he built a metal building on his property and began distributing wood-burning stoves. Mrs. Graves provided support and played a vital role in the life of the company. This business expanded to include wood- and gas-burning fireplaces to meet the demands of contractors and homeowners, thus Graves Fireplaces, Inc. was born.

As Founder and President of Graves Fireplaces, Inc., Fred was no newcomer to the specialty building products and homebuilding industries. Experiencing growth both in the business and family led him to plan for an expansion in the mid '90s. He got the vision of expanding the operation in order to provide additional products and services to an already strong and developing metro area.

Graves Overhead Doors is Born

Fred & Lee Graves, Owners

After much thought and planning, it was determined an overhead or garage door business was needed to support the community and would match well with our other specialty — hearth products. With only himself, 2 technicians, a warehouse person and receptionist, Graves Overhead Doors opened its doors for business.

In 2000, Mr. Graves' son joined the company and now serves as Vice President and Operations Manager. Today, our highly skilled team of experienced associates stands ready to serve you. The company remains family owned and its owners actively manage the businesses on a daily basis.

Remaining True to Guiding Principles

Thanks to the foresight of our founder, dedicated associates, the best suppliers in the industry, the loyal support of customers through the years, and most of all God's goodness, Graves has grown into a thriving organization. Much has changed over the years but our guiding principles of integrity, service and value have stayed the same, and we believe they will guide us well as we embrace the future. We seek to build relationships as we continue “Selling Service Since 1977”.
