Our Start

Lonestar Overhead Doors & Gates is a locally family owned and operated company that serves the Dallas Ft. Worth metroplex.  It was founded by John Coker who has worked in the Overhead Garage Door & Iron Works business since he was 16 years old.

John started out as a welding apprentice working for a custom iron fabrication company that specialized in all types of wrought iron home furnishing including light fixtures, gates, & furniture.  There he gained a great skill for detailed welding fabrication that taught him the necessity of paying attention to details.

Later he moved to the Dallas Fort Worth metroplex and began working as an installer for a well known Overhead Door company in Dallas where he spent several years learning the basic fundamentals of commercial & residential overhead garage doors.

After spending 5 years serving in the United States Navy, he returned to Dallas and started Lonestar Overhead Doors & Gates.  His knowledge and experience in the overhead garage door & gate industry has gained the respect of custom home builders, architects, and customers all over the Dallas Ft. Worth metroplex.
