"Overall the service provided was excellent. My questions and concerns were addressed. Rollers for garage door were replaced. Service providers in the office and" at my home were very professional. The service did not take long, quick and easy.

"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.

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 Hartford

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, ...More you re: the job and confirm where s/he can park.

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 ...More 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. ...More 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 again.
