" provided us with excellent service. They are super-responsive, prompt and their work is top-notch! Even though our home warranty covers" the garage door system, we still call because they are worth every penny!

"I made an appointment to meet the Service provider at my rental property. I had driven 600 miles, and made the appointment before I left. He stated he would meet" me at a specific time. He called me and let me know he had arrived early and would take a look at the garage door. I told him I'm on my way and will be there at the agreed upon time. He left before I arrived. I called him and he said he's already on to his next job. He said that he would not work on a garage door with a Genie garage door opener. He didn't give me any options or even an estimate until I pressed him for that information. He said he would work with a Liftmaster garage door opener. If he had stayed at the property, I probably would've paid for whatever he would've recommended. I can't afford to drive back and forth for a 1,200 mile roundtrip often. He knew I was coming from a long distance also. He sounded very good, reasonable and professional on the phone, but he gave me the worst customer service I had received in decades. He will obviously only work on his own terms, and may not tell you what those terms are until afterward! Terrible, just terrible to waste someone's time like this and not even have the decency to meet with them face to face!

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.

It went great. The tech, was on site within one hour. Only one spring snapped, but the door was not level with one old and one new spring, so he suggesting changing them both. He quickly set up and replaced both springs.

They were fabulous. Not only did they respond one the same day, they took the time to show me how to maintain my garage door on a monthly basis. We also had a bad sensor due to a bad wiring job and they took the time to fix that without any additional charges. In addition, they were very honest. I had told them on the phone the size of my door and ...More they mentioned that that size spring would cost more. However, I was wrong on the size of my garage door and they charged me the lower amount. I would have never known the difference and would have paid the higher amount without a thought. I truly appreciated their honesty.
A wonderful husband/wife team.

Accidentally back my car into my garage door and bent the bottom panel. CVOD came out right away to assess damage and needed to order a bottom panel to fix the door. They were able to straighten out my door enough so I could still open and close while the panel door was on order. As soon as the panel came in they were out to fix the door which took ...More 30 minutes and works like a charm. I thought the price was very reasonable and really appreciated their professionalism from the office to the technician. Will definitely use again on my garage door.

As stated above, the response to our request for a quote was met with promptness and professionalism. The date was set for installation and the installer was prompt, professional, courteous and easy to converse with. He did an amazing job within the timeframe he indicated to us when he arrived. He cleaned up after the installation which was extremely ...More appreciated. I definitely recommend this company and we would use them in the future if we needed them.
