I called doctor antenna to remove an old antenna tower at my house in West Toronto. The antenna was taken down quick and clean. They were easy to work with and did a great job!

ANTENNA INSTALLATION

HOMESTARS found Christopher for me and I had him install a CB transceiver antenna. Great choice, and I'll tell you why. At first, I wanted a 30 ft tower on the back of the house and we had the deal all set out. Then I had an afterthought, and Chris pointed out that a single 10 pole attached to the chimney would achieve the same height and effect, and at much less cost. We went with that. we ran into a couple of "hitches", which he resolved quickly and effectively and even though he had to provide an unexpected component, there was no adjustment to the price. In another case, I questioned the fit of two components. Chris simply handed it to me and said "show me". Of course, he was right.
Summary"
FAST, COMPETENT and REASONABLE COST. i WILL USE HEM AGAIN.

Renewed Home Tower Antenna like new after some needed TLC

After the roof was replaced, there was some concern that the tower antenna that has become insecure. The antenna was there since I have owned my home (almost 20 years) and after the roof was down, it looked like the antenna needed to come down.

I contacted Christopher, Doctor Antenna, about the issue and he said he would do a quick courtesy call to take look. That following day, while I was away, he took a look and told me that the antenna is still good and with a little Tender Love and Care (TLC), it could be good as new.

Once we quickly got a second time and date worked out, he returned, ensured it was secured, adjusted the antenna, along with new cabling and some minor adjustments. He tested each TV and answered all of my questions. I found him to be straightforward, friendly, and very professional in his work. Not only did I get to keep my antenna but we went from 18 channels to just over 30. Very happy his work!

Outdoor TV antenna replacement

When I called Dr. Antenna to tell him my problem, he promised to come to my house with in 24 hours to assess the situation. He came when promised and gave me some choices as to how to fix the problem. On the promised day he arrived and installed a new antenna. He checked to make sure it was working and adjusted the antenna for tre best reception. Excellent job and I have no hesitation in recommending him.

Disconnecting my antenna tower from my roof beams and anchoring it firmly in the brick wall of my home

My roofing company was pretty sure the old bracing for my antenna wasn't compatible with my new steel roof, and probably shouldn't be tied into my roof beams anyway. They were right, and so Dr. Antenna came one Saturday morning to make it right. True to his word, he brought all the required hardware, fittings, tools, and safety equipment to go aloft. Great job, smoothly executed, and it seems to be very solid. Chris was very willing to suggest some additional changes and improvements that we'll pursue at a later time, and also willing to explain how and why the bracing hardware worked. Thanks Chris!

TV antenna repair

High winds had caused a bracket to come loose and my antenna was hanging by only one bracket. Christopher went up on the roof in the high winds and managed to reattach the bracket is secure and realign the antenna. He did a great job in a timely manner at a reasonable cost.
Thank you very much Christopher, great to meet you!

Midtown Toronto installation

Christopher installed an outdoor antenna on top of our roof with an amplifier on August 7. Prior to that, we used three indoor antennas to connect our TVs and would pick up all the Toronto channels and two from Buffalo (CBS and The CW). With the outdoor antenna, we now get about 30 channels and sub-channels, including the Buffalo networks. While we're only able to get NBC about half of the time (it's a weaker signal), this may be due to the location of our house. Overall, we're very happy with the service that Christopher provided. He went up and down a few times to get the best signal possible. We would recommend Dr. Antenna to anyone who is interested in cutting the cable.

Fixed My Reception Problems

Up until about three weeks ago, we were having frequent reception issues with Buffalo stations 2, 7, 29, and 49. The reception was spotty and unreliable on the best of days even in good weather. Chris came by, did an assessment, and made some adjustments and tweaking of my outdoor antenna. Since then, reception on all Buffalo stations is the most reliable since we had the antenna installed by the previous installer, and stable about 95% of the time now. Chris came across as being very knowledgeable about antennas and the different types of reception issues. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs an antenna installed or who may be having reception issues.

Great antenna repair

Our TV antenna was not working well. We received 4 or 5 channels very poorly. We called Chris and he came right away. He did a first-class job reconnecting our antenna and changing the 15-year-old rotor, which did not work. We now get many channels crisp and clear - potentially 29. Chris is a very pleasant guy easy to get along with. We were very satisfied with the work he did and will call him again when the need arises.

More about Dr. Antenna

Can you believe Doctor Antenna has been around for ten years? I can't!
What I can believe is I must be doing something right. This year alone I have had at least seven people re use my service on the new houses they purchased. I can't even begin to count how many people have referred me to their friend and families.
***
When you call Doctor Antenna, I am proud to admit that you deal with me and only me. It's still a small company and I believe it's strength is derived from it's person-ability. As my ninety-two year old dad always said: "I'm the Chief Cook and Bottle Washer".
***
Another thing that surprises me every day is that so many people call me asking me to fix an antenna that was installed by someone else....why aren't they getting the original person to fix their own work? My take on that is that the other installer is not big on the after sales service, or they simply aren't in the Antenna Installation business any more!
***
At Doctor Antenna we (I) install, guarantee and fix my own work and apparently other people's work as well!!! I'll even go as far as giving you a guarantee on my repairs of other people's work! If I am putting my company's reputation on the line to fix other's mistakes, heck, I"ll give you that guarantee and stand by my work.
***
In closing, Doctor Antenna will provide you with the best quality, insured, safe install your dollar can buy.
And don't forget about Doctor Antenna's other services. We have been safely removing old TV Antenna Towers from both residential and commercial properties for ten years. Those old, out of date satellites that litter almost everyone's house, the huge old black satellite dishes that you find in peoples back yards and on top of old sports bars, never to be used again are all removed by Doctor Antenna.
​​***
As I have said all along...."Tune Into the Logical Solution", let me be the next Doctor that makes a house call to your home.
***
Thank you again for your patronage to Doctor Antenna,
***
Christopher MacDonald, Founder, President and CEO​
