Atlanta Garage Door Companies from people just like you.

"The company sent a technician out very quickly because the garage door wasn't working at all. He was not ale to repair it and gave a replacement estimate that" was in line with other similar products. I found another company who was able to repair the old door for a much smaller cost. The fix may be short-term, though, and I would not hesitate to go back to this company for a replacement.

"Late Monday night, my wife and I discovered our garage door wouldn't open. Even without the automatic garage door opener, the door was now supremely heavy to" open manually. We were in a difficult spot with limited ability to get cars in and out of the garage. The next morning I compared prices and reviews on Angie's list and Legacy had better prices and better reviews than most of the others. I called and talked to , got some great information and quote over the phone. They were able to come out within a couple of hours and the work was completed in less than an hour. They explain everything they were doing and helped me understand the way the system worked overall. They were pleasant, professional and honest. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. We weren't thrilled about an unexpected expense, but I have to say that seeing how smoothly my garage door goes up and down now makes it clear that the money was well spent. I highly recommend Legacy.

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.

Garage Door Installation reviews in Atlanta


I chose an expensive door - hence the cost - but for what they were doing it was quite reasonable.
The sales process was very smooth, and without surprises. came out and made sure things were measured appropriately and that I knew what I was buying. The door needed to be custom ordered, but they set up an appointment ...More for the day it was due from the manufacturer. It all worked like clock work - and despite some difficult circumstances (my garage was pretty non-standard) the installation was done beautifully. I would definitely use them again.

- Stuart B.

Kudos to this team ( , and ) for attentiveness and customer service. I called a day before the holiday weekend began, and they were already booked for the day... however the dispatcher demonstrated concerned about my safety and promised to try to get my work order in --that day ...More if possible. As the day progressed, we kept in touch and she took my contact information home for dispatch opportunities while the technicians were on their last job. She even contacted me an offered to come the next morning, but the technicians persevered and came out later that evening to complete the repair. They also honored a promotional discount on their company website to waive the first hour of repair which reduced my overall fees tremendously. I plan to contact them in the future and would recommend them to anyone for great customer service!!!
- Jennifer F.

This is the 2nd time I've used , and have no reason to ever use anyone else. Scheduled them thinking I needed something fixed (I didn't), but had them put in some new equipment while they were here.

- John P.

Serviceman was pleasant. He told me what was wrong with my doors, cleaned them up, and told me how much it would cost to fix them. Not a bad experience, but disappointing.
- barbara A.

I thought it was time to replace the rollers, since they were over 20 years old, although they were still working just fine. The service technician began looking for other issues and persuaded me to let him replace the cables, which pumped up the price. I regret the decision and I can only blame myself. The cables on the door were performing just ...More fine. An $89 dollar roller replacement became a $320 job.
- Jack P.

The company was scheduled to come out but unfortunately my appointment was cancelled by them because their truck broke down and no other tech could come. I had to secure my door for the night so I called another company.
I told GDS what was going on with my and of course I needed it secured. I also informed them about ...More the springs that their tech had installed. Their reply was that my warranty was now invalid because they did not fix the door. I gave them an opportunity but this company did not schedule another tech to come.
I will not use them again! From their reviews, this seems to be a rip-off company. i only wish that I had read their reviews before i used them to repair my in the first place.

The company was very professional they came on time and started right away with the services we wanted. They went over everything we needed to know on how to operate our new garage. My parents' were very pleased with the end results. We have a garage that compliments our home and we were told if we have any problems or questions to just call, ...More and someone will come to our home. I appreciate the professional service and I would recommend this company to my friends if they or someone they know may want to add a garage to their home.
- Christie Denise W.

Very nice and professional employee who arrived on time, identified the source of the problem quickly, and completed the repair in a timely manner.
- Nancy N.
