"I'm sort of a handy guy and have put in some openers so I considered doing the installation myself. Wow, am I glad I didn't. The installer arrived promptly" at 8 am and began the demolition. I'm not quite sure how I would have disposed of 500 lbs of wooden doors. Within the hour, two doors, two openers, all the track and the brackets to the ceiling were gone. Now the tricky part begins. I'm glad this guy had over 1000 installations under his belt. I have a low ceiling and a high car which makes it very important to make judicious use of every inch of overhead space. To make matters worse, there is an air duct right where one of the tracks wants to be. Fast forward 11 hours and the gentleman hands me the programed remotes. The doors look great, but much more important to me, unlike my wooden doors that leaked like a
, these doors are tight as a drum and the garage is noticeably warmer. Highly recommended. I appreciate a guy who take pride in his work and takes the time to do it right. A less experienced installer would have made a mess of this job.

"Went well. The young man worked continuously in the very cold weather for 2-3 hours. The only thing, and there are few contractors who don't do this: as" a contractor new to our property, s/he should never just drive in our driveway all the way down to our garage. Instead someone someone new should come to the front door,
you re: the job and confirm where s/he can park.

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.

Actually, I just wanted to have them to come and replace the bottom door panels of our garage door, however, I was convinced in replacing the whole thing because of the great deal they were offering. Well, I am glad that I have taken the offer. What a huge difference it was! They did an awesome installation, leaving no mess behind. Their service was worth every penny, plus the new door looks beautiful.

left voicemail on company phone saturday, 8/3/2013. call returned by owner on sunday, he was back from some time off, not sure if he always answers calls on sunday. said he could schedule his son to stop by monday, 8/5. quoted me $250 for job, and felt confident door could be made functional.
his son showed up late next morning. all new steel assembly installed. job took ~2 hours. one of rollers was missing and could not be replaced, not commercially available. just the same, the door which had not worked in decades works so well a motor to lift the door is not necessary, a little tug and the door lifts by itself. cost was as quoted. seemed very reasonable. would not hesitate to use
