"Great service. Couldn't be more pleased with the deal and the work that was performed. Highly recommend.

showed up on time, assessed the situation, reconnected the loose cable, tightened the springs that had caused the problem, lubricated all" the moving parts, and checked the operation of the door. All done in a professional manner and was finished within an hour. Since my current opener is over 30 years old, he left a brochure on a replacement that he would recommend when it was time to replace. I would definitely use them again.

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.

Company of Atlanta did an awesome job of fixing my garage door. The technician was very efficient and polite and even helped me program my car to operate my garage door. Highly recommended.

's technician,
Atlanta Garage Door Repair Companies Provider Name Locked
, provided excellent service. He thoroughly inspected my garage door, shared a wealth of knowledge about my garage door system, and replaced the old worn out rollers on my garage door with new rollers. Overall, he was very professional, communicative, and knowledgeable. He never tried to upsell me on something I didn't need and was very trustworthy. The only modestly negative concern I would like to note is that we rescheduled once due to the cold weather (not

's fault) but then they moved my time slot on the day of service 2 additional times. Still, I would recommend

First class company with great owners and employees! The garage door was installed today, and I couldn't be happier. From the quote (which was lower than anyone else by hundreds) to the install, the experience was seamless. After two months of dealing with Comcast nightmares, today was a welcome departure from what appears to be the norm with most companies lately. I have already recommended them to two of my neighbors that are looking for a garage door company.

Experience was great overall - from the initial contact through the service on my garage door. Made recommendations, explained safety issues, but did not try to force me to purchase any other services.

The service was overpriced. The keyless pad works fine. Scheduling an appointment was easy. I felt they tried to up sell me other services.

We chose them primarily because the Genie garage door opener was compatible with the remote transmitters in our cars, and everything went well. They made scheduling easy despite the fact that I was out of town, the technician arrived in a truck that had the company's logo, and he did the work without leaving a mess.

Everyone with whom we dealt was friendly and professional, and they were responsive to our calls. Unfortunately, the LiftMaster opener wasn't compatible with the remote transmitters in our cars, and we had to hire another company to install a different type of opener.
