" The repairman got right to work and got everything installed quickly. Everything works great. He also checked the door and springs and tuned things up where" needed. He stuck around to make sure that the remote controls worked. He even helped to program the automatic opener that was built into my car. I would use these guys again.

Garage doors can open and close on their own. Although it's rare, here's what to look for.

If you're not sure what you're doing, it's best to let a pro handle repair, adjustment or replacement of garage door springs. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Steve E. of Cerritos, California)

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!




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


very professional and nice. fixed yard side overhead garage door. very smooth now. even fixed a stray wheel on big garage door for no cost because he saw that it was broken and didn't want to leave it like that. would use again.
- Ken R.

I knew that my garage door would need more than just the normal maintenance. It's an older door that was noticeably making strange noises to the point where I didn't like anyone to be in the garage when it was closing.

from Overhead was prompt, very courteous and professional, and was sure to walk me through his thought process on what was happening with my garage.
After the maintenance and necessary repair work (which I might add he performed surprisingly quickly but thoroughly) my garage purrs not roars when it opens. Use these guys!
- Patrick G.

After meeting with Nick and deciding on the services we wanted, chose the door style and colors, we received a proposal on the same day as he promised. He placed the order giving us an approximate date for the installation dependent on the arrival date of the material. The doors were installed within a few days of the date. They look terrific and everything works perfectly.


Arrived in the time frame scheduled, performed all work quickly & thoroughly, repairman was friendly & organized. All in all a positive experience.
- N G.

The service provided was outstanding! The service tech was running a little behind schedule, but kept me well informed on a time when he would arrive. He was very professional. I have already told people about this company. Thanks again!
- Brittani A.

The service was fine. They arrived within the window I was given. Assessed the problem with the old broken door opener and recommended that it be replaced with a new one. It has been more than a month and the new opener is working fine. The technician was nice and professional. He cleaned up the mess, gave me quick instruction on how to work the new opener, answered my questions and left.
- Angela A.

They did an awesome job!!! They were quick getting out here the same day I called them to give an estimate. Then they came back the next day to do the job. Will definitely use them again.
- meghan M.


Honest, timely, easy to work with. We had a $99 coupon/deal to have garage door wheels replaced. The door stopped working electronically and the company happily fixed what we needed done for the $99, even though the wheels weren't the problem.
