Himmel's Commercial Doors & Repairs prides itself on having fleet of quality trucks and careful drivers to ensure your product will arrive on time and in good condition. Each location has its own delivery fleet to ensure the proper service level is met. Before we deploy our trucks, Himmel's Commercial Doors & Repairs officer in charge is tasked to assess each product on its packaging down to how it is carried inside the truck. Standard checks are crucial to ensure that you receive our product without a problem.
No matter the distance, we will keep your product safe. We have sales/customer representatives to help you keep track of the delivery process and ensure your product’s safety.

We will offer an upfront price that fits within your budget.

We are always willing to negotiate and come to an ultimate agreement before finalizing the quote. Affordability isn’t hard to come by with Himmel’s selection of products and services.

Fabrication is the process of manipulating raw materials for creating machines, hardware, tools, and equipment to make them into new and modified products. Though it has its limits, fabrication is responsible for the tools we use regularly such as saws and torches.Certain machines are not in every fabrication shop’s wheelhouse due to their complexity.
Himmel's has a full time fabrication shop that can fabricate fire-rated and non-rated nonrated hollow metal doors and frames. Whether it is a custom hinge location, a custom lock prep, or a lite kit cut out, Himmel's can quickly and accurately customize a wood or metal door in-house.
Using the available materials we have in store, we take precise measurements in order to create quality customized products only crafted at Himmel’s fabrication shop. From hardware to frames, our fabrication service creates products like no other.

Himmel's has implemented a cutting edge industry innovation where most of the door hardware can be installed and QA QC checked before ever leaving our facility. Quality assurance testing is part of our advanced standard procedures to help us continue providing nothing but the best products and services to our clients. Our consultants, engineers, specialists, project managers, and even our sales representatives incorporate QA QC as part of their task.
The pre-installed doors arrive protected and palletized to the jobsite ready to be swung into their frames, mitigating jobsite damage and loss of hardware. Himmel's is one of only a handful of door companies in the country having adopted this practice, and has used it successfully to complete one of the largest healthcare projects in Louisiana. We deal and fix damages and issues before they even transpire. Anticipation is the key and it’s always present in Himmel’s.
