"Went okay. He took measurements in case the spring broke and did preventive maintenance work for an additional fee. Do not remember what exactly was the additional preventive work...

"It went well. He showed me some broken hinges which were replaced. The outdoor pad is very useful. He was very pleasant and completed the work in short time.

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.

I sent an email through Angie's List and he promptly called and scheduled to come by a few hours later. He explained the system I had and my options for repair and/or replacement. I chose to replace and he promptly completed the installation. He was very professional and cleaned up behind himself. He showed me how to work ...More the new unit, helped me program my remotes and keypad. He made sure to let me know that if I had any questions after he left, I could call him. I will certainly recommend him to anyone who needs garage door repair or replacement.

Our was previously installed by . I called this morning to request a service appointment to fix the track on the door and was able to get an appointment the same day. The technician who did the repair was great. He called ahead to see if it was ok to come earlier than the scheduled window, which was ...More fabulous, he was also professional and personable - a great representation of the company. He knew exactly what was wrong with the door, and the part needed was on the truck. Once the repair was done the technician checked the door overall, lubed the tracks and it works great now! He also screwed the cover back on the motor unit light (something I had been meaning to get the ladder to do!) Additionally, I was also able to use an Angie's List coupon for the service call, so that was a plus!

I did not speak with anyone until the day of the service. All communication was via email. I will say I'm not a fan of the big time gaps (8-12), but we did get a call from someone that told us a technician was at one location and would be to us in a little over an hour, which was greatly appreciated. showed up almost exactly ...More 1 hr after the call. He was very polite and explained to us what we needed to do to maintain the quality of the work he had done. He explained what the best upkeep products were. The garage door needed new rollers and to be lubed and he did so quickly and efficiently. Would definitely use their services again

We had two wooden garage doors, probably 20 years old. They were noisy and did not provide much insulation, and the wood was starting to fall apart. We replaced the motors with very quiet models. The replacement doors were steel facing with some foam core between, R value of 16.

We got the estimate on Thursday, and the tech came out Saturday ...More and removed the old doors and equipment and installed the new doors and equipment. The doors are very quiet and solid, very well made.

The technician was on time and finished the work per the estimate.

The next day one of the banks on a motor was not working correctly. I called them on Monday and the tech came out Tuesday and fixed the problem.

We have used them before for minor garage door repairs over the years. Service has always been great.
