"It went well. They came as scheduled. Had to order a special piece. It took longer to get the piece then they thought but installed as soon as it was received.

-Amy O.

"I backed into my garage door while it was still opening, damaging the brackets on the sides that hold the rollers. I called after finding" them on Angie's List. Someone answered right away, and when I described the issue and my location he said he was in the area and could come check it out in about a half hour. They arrived as promised and fixed the issue on the spot. The price was a little steep given the short duration of work required, but I was willing to pay for such prompt service. I'll call them again next time I have an issue (hopefully I never back into my garage again, though)!

Angie's Answers


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 Chicago


was great. He was very responsive, on time, and courteous. The price was equal to one other bid, and lower than another, but they were the only ones who did not want to make the door smaller in order to use a standard size, which I really appreciated because its a pretty small opening as it is. There was a delay because of their ...More supplier and communicated that quickly and throughout, and he got the door in as soon as it arrived.
- Vanessa R.

My garage door would only open 3 feet and then became hung up on one side. I called and they sent out a team right away. In only 30 minutes, they were there and diagnosed the problem. The door apparatus was so old that some of the rollers had broken and would not permit the door to fully open. They replaced all ten of the ...More rollers at my direction, (if one had broken, t he rest were sure to follow I thought); however, they were willing to just fix the ones that were broken if I wanted. I appreciated them offering me a choice.
The crew was efficient, explained what they were doing, and were pleasant to deal with. We discussed what future problems I might have but there was no sales pressure to make any improvements now. Again, they were forthcoming about what options I had when I was ready to make any changes. I would certainly hire this firm again. I have had experience with other Chicagoland garage door companies . is, by far, the best.

I found the company on Angie's List and called to see if they could help with a problem I was having with my front gate post sinking over time into the ground. I think it was because the top of the gate post was missing when we moved in, and the rain/snow water that subsequently fell inside the post was making the ground soft and causing the fence ...More post to sink down. was very helpful and asked that I email pictures over to him for a quick review. After I did, he provided a quick response/quote and we scheduled the work to be done in the following days. It was a small job, but I'm appreciative of the fact that they were responsive, quick, and he helped me solve the small problem instead of trying to sell me a new fence. If at some point in the future we decide to replace our gate, we will definitely call them.

- Tere W.

arrived when he said he would during his pre-call. He was able to adjust the hinges without using extra parts therefore saving me money. Then he installed a keypad on the outside of the door, showed me how to program it in case it ever loses the code, and made sure it worked. I'm planning on scheduling another call to setup ...More the opener with my new car.

The new door is perfectly installed. Glad we have a modern light, door replacing a rotting wooden door.
Easy to get scheduled and the materials and workmanship was excellent.
- Mark W.

When the previous provider left our condominium parking lot gate broken in the open position, I called for an estimate on repair or replacement. performed the estimate at a time that was convenient for me, on a cold night in January; I was grateful not to have to miss for the appointment. ...More At my request, the estimate included several options for repair or replacement, from least expensive to the most comprehensive and costly. After much delay on my part, coordinating with my neighbors, we opted to replace the circuit board and receiver with a newer (but still inexpensive model), install a photo eye for safety (at 's recommendation), and purchase many new and easy-to-program remotes (also recommended by ). The work was performed exactly according to the estimate and we were very pleased with the result. Several months later, after a robbery in our parking lot, came back to reprogram our gate and provide new remotes. The provider was extremely responsive and helpful on both occasions.
- Rachel J.

My remote control for access to my gated condominium parking lot working intermittently and then not at all. I called because they had previously serviced the gate. promised to send a technician to give an estimate on replacing my remote (and purchasing additional remotes for others in building). I took ...More time off from work and no technician showed up. This happened at least three more times -- for a total of at least four missed appointments. The technician who finally did come identified a problem with the gate operator (circuit board) which was an obsolete model. While the diagnosis was correct, he left the gate inoperable and in an open position. The employees I spoke with at were not apologetic for the missed appointments nor did they proceed with any urgency or sense of responsibility for the security issue created by the open gate. I opted to hire a different provider for repair.
- Rachel J.

This man is completely honest. The repair was a one and he only charged me for the house call. He explained how he could repair the damage without replacing parts. I believe a less-scrupulous person would have sold me a replacement sensor. He was on time, courteous, and professional.
- Roger J H.
