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.

Garage Door Installation And Repair reviews in Austin

Before the service, the contractor inspected the starter and told us it wasn't working properly. This was a great help, since the starter was covered under warranty and needed to be replaced.

Went extremely well; I had to reschedule a couple of times, but the technician (
Austin Garage Door Repair Companies Provider Name Locked
) showed up early and was very friendly and informative.
Asked about how it was working, checked the various systems, lubricated and cleaned mechanical parts. He did warn me that the motor was well over 10 years old, and though it was working fine, once it starts to go it's probably better to replace the whole thing rather than repair it (which is what I'd already assumed).
Basically, just very competent, quick and friendly -- exactly what I'd want in an inspection and maintenance.

I called the top 5 garage repair shops listed in Angie's list.

was the only one that gave me a ballpark estimate over the phone. All the others insisted that there was no way to prove an estimate without scheduling an appointment for a site visit.

replaced my springs the same day and their estimate was right on. Their responsiveness and communications were great, the price was the best and the repair was done ahead of schedule. I have used several other companies in the past, but

My garage door was sounding
Austin Garage Door Repair Companies Provider Name Locked
as it went up and down so I called
Austin Garage Door Repair Companies Provider Name Locked
when I saw the special through Angie's List. After I purchased the special,
Austin Garage Door Repair Companies Provider Name Locked
contacted me immediately. I was unable to schedule because of an unexpected family emergency on my end. I contacted them a few weeks later and they were able to schedule me after work.
Austin Garage Door Repair Companies Provider Name Locked
contacted me to let me know he was on the way the day of the service.
He went over the workings of my door and it is back to that quiet sound as it opens and closes.
I will use them again next year for another checkup because I think it's a good idea to have the garage door checked regularly. Especially when a checkup is so reasonably priced.

we've had recent issue with our garage door. We had the springs and opener replaced 3-4 months ago. In addition, there were 2
bolts that we've had problems with for years.
I requested
Austin Garage Door Repair Companies Provider Name Locked
take a look at the bolts and the door itself since it has been making strange noises. He replaced the 2 bolts with longer ones, bent in a bowed metal piece (my wife bumped into the door a while back), and tightened the springs. He was there for 20-30 minutes with a second guy.
Austin Garage Door Repair Companies Provider Name Locked
didn't charge me a dime! That is a huge way to build trust. I was not expecting that type of response at all, and it was very appreciated. I will keep his contact info around for all other garage door concerns.
Note - I called the evening before and he arrived early the next morning. He has very quick response times.

Prompt confirmation of appointment time, called a day before appointment to confirm, showed up exactly on time and was very professional and courteous during the service. Will definitely use this company again. Two Thumbs Up!

The first gentleman that came out was nice but after that when I called the company back with issues they were rude. They are unethical, I told them not to come back. Very bad experience.

The service was perfect, from start to finish. The owner,
Austin Garage Door Repair Companies Provider Name Locked
, himself handled everything and was extremely prompt - he picked up my first call and was willing to drive to my house within less than half hour on a cold, rainy day to check out the problem. He explained to me exactly what was broken (the belt chain on the garage door opener system installed by Builder completely came off) and made recommendations. We ended up going with his recommendation to get a LiftMaster system installed for both of our garage doors, and we are very pleased with the work

did. He performed the work promptly and thoroughly and explained everything upon completion on how to use the opener and even greased the garage doors to make for a quiet door open/close operation. I highly recommend

and

for any garage door service needs you may have!
