"I sent an email to using the emergency button on their website. I came home after work and when I tried opening my garage door, it started" to open and then came slamming down. I could not lift it and I couldn't open my other door because I had unfortunately blocked it with brooms and rakes, etc. I had no way to get in the garage to see what had happened. I explained this in my email that I sent close to 7pm. In less than 5 minutes, responded to my email with a phone call !! How great is that?!! I explained my problem and he expected it was a broken spring or cable and said he would send to my home the very next morning! was very friendly and understanding and exceeded all my expectations of what defines excellent customer service! The next morning, I spoke with to provide some information. He was just as friendly and professional and assured me he would take of everything. And he did just that and then some! He replaced all the springs, cables and pulleys on both of the doors!! He also went above and beyond by moving the items blocking the other door and he worked around a lot of other obstacles on that side of the garage! The garage door now works more smoothly and quietly than it ever has! And all at an extremely fair price!! I could not be more delighted with every aspect of this company and the employees I dealt with. This kind of customer service and work quality is a rarity these days and I send a HUGE thank you to and .!! I HIGHLY recommend doors and have already told many people about my experience. It was a real pleasure from start to finish!! I rate them an A++++ Thanks again :)

" helped during the estimate by securing the old door which was a hazard as it was. He showed up on time installing the 9x7 door (single door" without windows or insulation) in a detached garage. It took the morning and we find it a pleasure to have a functional garage door. We were able to use the existing garage door opener.

Here's the video I used - I found it pretty helpful:


Garage door spring replacements cost me less than $100 by doing it myself and only took me about 25 minutes. As far as I know, changing out the garage door springs will solve most issues. I found at kit online at a place called garage door nation and just bought that one since they seemed the most legit and included all the extras.


I am usually not good with these types of things. I saved almost $500 by doing it myself.

Hope this helps!



Hello Salem,
The important thing to look at with the doors you are considering is the Gauge of the door (the thickness of the metal) and the grade of the hardware being used. there are nominal Gauge doors and true Gauge doors, A 25G (G = Gauge) Door is acutually .025 of an inch thick, a nominal 25G door is actually 26G or 27G (thinner) but reinforced to act like a True 25G. A nominal Door is generally weaker and still prone to dents and damage eiser that a true thicker door.
The Hardware  is very important, Are you going to get rollers with bearings and a nylon cap (quiet,long life), or a roller that is a plastic wheel on a metal shaft (no Bearings), or a metal wheel (noisy over time).
are you going to get the full body 14g Hinge (strongest and most supportive), or the medium body 16g-18g Hinge (narrower, thinner, not as supportive).
The last thing to consider is the Torsion Spring, from th price you mentioned I am guessing you are gettting custom doors , It is important that the springs you get are meant to last a while ask the companies what cycle spring they are going to provide? the one with the higher cycle life is definatly going to save you money in the future.
Based on experience and actualling working with both companies it is my personal opinion that Raynor provides better products and parts up front with out having to pay more but companies are different everywhere I always recommend asking about these things.
I hope this helped, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Assuming you are talking rollup garage door - issues similar but not as many parts on a tilt-up door.

Many rollup doors in residential use go 30 years or more on original springs.

Generally, they do not need to be replaced till they break. A broken one should be pretty obvious - the door will open very hard because it is being pulled up more at one side than the other, if at all, and one spring will be wound tight while the other will be looser, and usually the break is a visibly obvious one - either a visible break in the main portion of the spring, or the free end that goes into the end plate is broken off. Compare the springs against each other to see they look the same.

Also, if you think a spring is broken but can't see anything wrong, maybe the set screws that hold the end plates tight onthe axle have vibrated loose, relaxing the tension on the spring.

As the door gets older you may need to have a garage door repairman adjust the spring tension tighter if the door starts opening hard or balking at opening, though that is more often a problem with dirty slider track and bearings from dust accumulation, which you can clean with WD40 and then lubricate the side support rollers with motor oil or household oilcan. On lubrication of the slider track there are differences of opinion - some say clean with a non-oily solvent like brake cleaner and leave it clean and ddry so dust does not stick to it, other say oil with a light household oil or WD40. I prefer the latter so the plastic slider does not get worn out sliding on the metal slider track or pole, though it definitely does accumulate an oily dust grunge. The cleaning and lubricating should be done at least yearly - every 3-6 months if you use the door multiple times a day, more often if you are in a real dusty area like the Dust Bowl, the desert, or close to the beach.




I think he is trying to upsell you on something you don't need, or their company policy is neer fix, always replace - some companies are in that mode not, to prevent future call-backs when it does not work.


IF only needs screws, sounds like a good do it yourself job with self-tapping sheet metal screws. Or a Handyman could do for maybe $50-70 if that is all that is needed.


If the weatherstrip is damaged and in on the front edge of the garage door, one other possibility - replace with one like this, or screw a bottom compression type rubber weatherstrip on the bottom of the door - actually work a lot better than the face-mounted ones anyway, in my opinion. Look like this from M-D Building Products and Frost King among others. Can also be used nailed to frame to flap contacts door face as an edge and top weatherstrip - 


Maintanence is going to vary by how much you use the door.  If it is used multiple times a day as cars go in and out I recommend having it checked annually.  You want someone to lube all of the proper points and inspect the rollers for wear or damage.  You don't want a component of that door failing and falling on yourself or a child.  Sometimes tracks need to be adjusted or realigned for various reasons.  Also, the springs can weaken and break causing the door to fall.  Have those checked as well.

A little difficult setting up an appointment due to provider's existing workload, but we worked out a date that was fully satisfactory to me. They showed up on time and did a great job.
- michael S.

I had a very positive experience with . My garage door had too many problems to fix, and I needed a new one. New doors are a bit pricey, and the owner of the company did offer me other options to fix it and didn't pressure me at all to get a new one. They were available at times that were convenient for me and they showed ...More up right on time.
- Helena L.

started to work on the problem. He also provided maintenance service to the rollers and re-align the sensors, and re-align the tract that shifted with the garage. He also provided maintence on the other garage door so I have peace of mind that both doors will function without trouble now or next month. The price was reasonable ...More and the serviceman was kind, thorough and efficient. Would highly recommend to others at work or among family. Thank you!
- Arabella A.

I have used this provider in the past, but I think it has been at least 5 years. When there was a squeaking noise, I looked at the springs and noticed 1 was not right. I called Capital and made an appointment for the 1-3pm time frame. arrived about 1:15 and we talked about his prior visits. He agreed that the springs should ...More be replaced. It was cold outside, so I went in. did his work quickly and efficiently. The doors work fine now.

- Eileen M.

everything went well. We received a call when was on the way to our house. My husband met him there, the work was done timely, & neatly.
- T K.

He arrived and measured the garage doors, explained what would be done and gave me two pamphlets I selected the two I liked with a custom color that had two be special ordered. The doors arrived two weeks later. He removed the old doors and hardware (NOT the door opener - that was fine) and installed the new doors and hardware. They open and close fine, ...More relatively quiet and sit flush with the garage floor - very nice job.

He came out to measure the garage door the same day I spoke with him. In less than 2 days my new door and opener were installed. He was very professional and honest. He also took the time to make sure I knew how to use the opener then at no charge set up my home link for my vehicle. I will be recommending him to all my family and friends on what ...More a GREAT job did!
- Vanessa M.

They were great! contacted me by email the day I bought the coupon and called me the second day. Set up appointment a week later and they called to ask if they could come early which was perfect for me. Repairman was courteous, fast and good about explaining what he was going to do and why. If I have other problems, they're the ones I'll call.
