Goodall: New Community Coming Soon – The Retreat at Fairvue

“New Community Coming Soon–The Retreat at Fairvue (Press Release)


Located in the Greensboro Village area, adjacent to Green Lea Boulevard, The Retreat at Fairvue features Cottage Homes designed for those with discriminating taste and a desire for a maintenance free lifestyle.  All Cottage Homes showcase a distinct European design, wider doorways, a zero-step entry, private courtyards, and fully sodded and irrigated lawns.  There are many luxury features offered such as granite countertops, hand scraped hardwood floors, tile in bathrooms, along with many upgraded plumbing and lighting fixtures.  In addition, The Retreat at Fairvue includes Courtyard Parks designed with welcoming lawns and lush landscaping.  These tranquil escapes are perfect for reading, walking or spending time with family or friends.

Since founder, Bob Goodall, began building homes in 1983, Goodall Homes has gone on to build thousands of homes in numerous locations in the Greater Nashville area, including Gallatin, Hendersonville, Goodlettsville, Nashville, Lebanon, Mount Juliet, Franklin, and Thompson’s Station. Goodall Homes has established itself as one of the fastest growing and most respected home builders in Tennessee.  Locally owned and operated, Goodall Homes offers development, building and real estate sales services all under one roof.

Recent honors speak to their success across all three areas: In 2011, Goodall Homes received the National Housing Quality Bronze Award, sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders; was ranked the third-fastest-growing company in the Nashville Business Journal’s annual list of 25 Fastest-Growing Private Companies; and was honored with the publication’s Best in Business Award for 2011. And despite their rapid growth, giving back to the community remains a top priority: In 2012, Goodall Homes co-sponsored Operation Finally Home, a nonprofit program in which a mortgage-free home was built and delivered to an injured veteran.

Bob Goodall, President of Goodall Homes, said,  “The demographics of discriminating buyers are changing, they want luxury features but with little or no maintenance.  Several homeowners in the Fairvue area are spending other seasons in different states and this is the perfect option for a second home.”

Garage Door Weatherstripping

Did you see the snow this morning?  The cold weather is definitely here.  If you’re having trouble keeping the cold weather out of your garage, consider replacing the vinyl around the outside of the door. The vinyl helps ensure rain, snow, dirt, or debris stays out of your garage.  Not only that but it helps keep the garage warm in the winter months, and then cool in the summer months.



The pricing is $1.50 per foot, is available in multiple colors, and we can get you the size you need.  If you need us to come out and install new vinyl for you, give us a call!  Or if you prefer to pick it up and install yourself, feel free to call or drop by our office.

LiftMaster “Don’t Chance It. Check It.” Safety Campaign Bulletin

Garages continue to serve as a major hub of activity in the modern household, often becoming the primary entry point into the home and a storage center for everything from soccer balls to snow blowers.  But, with one out of every 15 garage door openers lacking the latest safety features, there is a hidden threat in millions of households across America.  To avoid injuries from the largest and heaviest moving object in the home, LiftMaster – the number one manufacturer of professionally installed garage door openers in the world – is announcing its national “Don’t Chance It.  Check It.” Garage Safety Initiative.


Once considered a luxury item, automatic garage door openers are now installed in 35 million households across the country, with more than 70 percent of homeowners relying on their garage door as the main access point to the home.  As more and more garage door openers made their way into American homes over the last several decades, laws were enacted to ensure the safety of those using them.  However, prior to 1993, protection systems, such as infrared sensors or “photo-eyes” that stop a garage door before making contact with an object or person – were not mandatory.

Instead, garage door openers were equipped with force-sensing safety systems that only revers the door after it makes contact with an object.  These older molders can be safe and reliable if installed, tested and maintained properly.  But unless they’re retrofitted with photo-eyes, the vast majority of these older units still are not up to today’s standard of safety.

“Millions of garage lack the latest safety features, like photo-eyes or, may not be operating properly,” said Bob Markwart, President, LiftMaster, Americas.  “We believe it is our industry’s responsibility to do our best to ensure everyone is educated on what makes a garage truly safe.  LiftMaster’s “Don’t Chance It.  Check It.” initiative helps families ensure everything is in working order with the largest moving object in the home by providing three easy-to-follow safety tests that use everyday household items and only two minutes of time.”

The program, currently rolling out to a national audience, is designed to help homeowers and families understand how to check their door and make sure they have the safest garage door opener system in place.  Follow these three easy steps to ensure safe functionality of any automatic garage door openers installed after 1993 or retrofitted with safety eyes”
1.  Check the sides of the garage door for properly installed photo-eyes (black sensors), mounted no higher than six inches off the floor.
2.  Block the photo-eye with an object over six inches tall and press the close button on the garage door opener.  The door should not close.
3.  Lay an object that is at least 1.5 inches in height flat on the ground in the door’s path and press the close button.  Household objects this size might be a bar of soap, a stack of index cards, or a hardcover book.  The door should reverse off this object.  If it makes contact and does not revers, the door is not operating correctly.

After recording the results, homeowners are encouraged to contact a LiftMaster Certified Safety Check Dealer to seek guidance on how to keep this high-traffic area safe and secure.

LiftMaster is the number one brand of professionally installed residential garage door openers and commercial door operators, as well as a major manufacturer of residential, industrial and commercial door operators, as well as a major manufacturer of residential, industrial and commercial gate operators, telephone entry systems and related access control products.  Driven by the access and security needs of the residential, commercial and industrial marketplace, the expansive lines of LiftMaster products are designed to fit any lifestyle or application, providing customers with the latest technology and innovations in safety, security and convenience.

LiftMaster: Take Preventive Measures to Keep Your Garage & Family Safe

Make Garage Safety a Good Habit: Get the Latest on Garage Safety Mandates

Millions of garage doors lack the latest safety features or may not be operating properly.  There is no better time to ensure the heaviest and largest moving object in the home, the garage door, is the safest it can be.

Garage Usage: New Found Functionality and the New Front Door of the Home
– Installed in 35 million U.S. homes, the garage door opener serves as a trusted household appliance.
– Industry professionals estimate that one out of 15 garage door openers lack the latest safety features.
– Not more than 30 years ago, the garage door opener was considered a luxury.  A lot has changed in the past three decades.  Now most people consider these devices to be a necessity due to the convenience, security, and safety they provide.  In fact, more than 70 percent of today’s homeowners use their attached garage as the main entranceway into their home, relying on the automatic garage door opener for home access every day throughout the year.
– With an active role in the daily safety and security of homeowners, the garage door opener is relied upon to open and close the largest access point of the home – the garage door – while protecting the property and people behind it.
– The garage door opener has evolved to be equipped with mandatory safety devices to eliminate harm to anyone using the garage or crossing underneath it.


Safety Mandates: What You Need to Know About Your Own Garage Door Opener
– As garage door openers made their way into American homes, laws were enacted to ensure the safety of those using them.  For example, legislation was passed requiring all new garage door openers manufactured in 1993 and beyond to possess added safety features.  The law mandated that all garage door openers be manufactured and sold with an external protection system otherwise known as infrared sensors or “photo-eyes.”
– These sensors are installed near the floor on either side of the garage door opening.  Once the invisible laser beam between the two sensors is broken by an obstruction, the door reverses automatically.  If your opener lacks a similar safety reversing feature, it’s time to get a new opener.
– Openers made prior to 1993 came equipped with force-sensing safety systems that would only reverse the door after having made contact with the object in the door’s path.  The vast majority of these older units are not equipped with “photo-eyes,” which means these older systems will only reverse AFTER making contact with the obstruction, person, child, or pet standing in the way.  And due to the long lifespan of garage door openers, one of these older units could still be lurking in your garage, unless you perform a safety check!


Get Involved!  Don’t Chance It.  Check It.  Safety Campaign

Driven to keep U.S. homeowners safe from malfunctioning garage doors, LiftMaster, the number one brand of professionally installed residential garage door openers with more than 4,000 dealers across the country, has introduced the “Don’t Chance It.  Check It.  Safety Campaign”, spreading the word on three simple steps any homeowner can perform in just a few minutes.

LiftMaster: Don’t Chance It, Check It – Raising Awareness about Garage Safety

The Problem:  1 in 15 garages may lack the latest safety features or may not be operating properly.  And many more garage doors and openers could be showing signs of wear and tear, indicating a need for service.


The Solution:  For over 40 years, LiftMaster has led the industry in safety, quality and innovation.  Now LiftMaster is launching “Dont Chance It.  Check It.” – a national campaign designed to educate Consumers about garage safety and encourage Dealers to add the Garage Safety Check to their daily routine.


The Results:  After an 8-week test campaign, participating Dealers helped make hundreds of garages safer by performing safety checks.  Their results were amazing!  In just 8 weeks, Dealers:
– Elevated their reputation in their community
– Engaged with new Consumers
– Grew their business – by as much as 30%!



In 1993, Underwriters Laboratories passed the UL325 standard, requiring photo-eyes be installed with all residential garage door openers.  Today, there are many garage door openers installed before 1993 that are still operational but lacking these safety requirements.

Replacing these out-of-date garage door openers can open up new opportunities for you and your business.

LiftMaster’s 3-Step Safety Check is the cornerstone of the “Don’t Chance It.  Check It.” program and can easily be incorporated into ever service call.


This simple test can quickly determine if a Consumer’s garage door opener is safe.

1.  Check the sides of the garage door for properly installed photo-eyes (black sensors), mounted no higher than 6 inches off the floor.
2.  Block the photo-eye with an object over 6 inches tall, and press the garage door opener’s close button.  The door should not close.
3.  Lay a 1.5 inch-high object on the ground in the door’s path, and press the close button.  The door should reverse off this object.
