". I saw free estimate and the fact that the owner lived in the area. I emailed. He came. He found the problems within about a minute. He removed and straightened" out various parts. There was no charge for this as he is close to home. I enjoyed him a lot and he obviously knew what he was doing. I don't know how he'd be on a bigger job but since he was fast and efficient, I'd use him again and recommend him without a problem. Hey, thanks again! ****** I had contacted another company - free estimate is clearly listed on the website. The problem was initially he said (email) the service charge would be about $80. I pointed out what it said on AngiesList and he said there would not be a service charge. The problem is I'm tired of dealing with inaccuracies and went to my next choice (who perhaps should've been my first).

"All hinges were repaired that very day and the door's been perfect ever since. Well done, very professional, punctual and well worth calling anytime a fix is needed in the future.

Angie's Answers

Here is a tip sheet from Angie's List, previously published:

http://www.angieslist.com/articles/garage-door-experts-give-maintenance-tips.htm

If a tilt-up door, probably about $150-200.

If a roll-up door, assuming you have not put in cabinets or anything that prohibits sliding the shaft sideways about 2-3 feet out of the spring to change it, then about $200-250 should do it for a 2-car garage door. If he has to disassemble the brackets to remove the springs because the shaft cannot slide sideways enough to get the springs on/off, then probably another $50-100.

If you have an automatic garage door opener, usually they will charge you $50 or less for tension adjustment, lube, and motor cleaning if scheduled on the same visit, about half a normal call cost.

One thing to consider - assuming you have 2 springs and an opener, unless the other spring is quite new, you should replace it at the same time, first because it will probably break fairly soon anyway and changing two is only about $50 more than changing one, and because the springs on both sides should be of equal stiffness - if not, then the door will be unevenly weight compensated and try to open cockeyed, increasing wear and risk of damaging the motor.

?

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.

Called and got a quote on the phone to replace my garage door opener. Price was reasonable. Crew arrived on time. They worked fast and informed me the job was done in 1 hour. As they were pulling out I noticed that one of the sensors was blocking my side exit door. I called them on the cell phone they had called me from and they indicated that I may need to live with that. I told them it should be resolved. They came back - one had an attitude and crudely cut the

No problems whatsoever. Quote was quick, easy to communicate with. Arrived when they said they would, did the job, no problems at all. Cost was very reasonable. I would definitely use them again if I needed another door.

We had two garage doors that had malfunctioned. The first one several weeks earlier but we just hadn't gotten around to fixing it until the second one broke and we couldn't get our car out of the garage. We have very heavy doors. I called and they had someone come out within 30 minutes. We were afraid we were going to have to replace at least one whole unit but the gentlemen who came out fixed them both in 20 minutes or so. Great price, fast service....what's not to love.

said he would be out later that day. In mid-afternoon he showed up and had the door fixed in no time, actually about 15 minutes. He replaced the spring and advised us that the existing spring was not rally strong enough for the weight of our door.
The door is working just fine and is much quieter than before.

My garage door was not opening, and he determined it was an electrical problem. After some trouble shooting, it was finally found that I had had a burnt out fuse that appeared normal at first. He also leveled up the door and it is working again and running much quieter.

We had new garage door openers installed last year. We had a glitch with one that we could not figure out. It was our issue but they had no problem coming out to show us how to reconnect the manual release. They are the most responsive people regardless of the problem.
