"Had a special for replacing garage door spring, so thought I'd give them a try. When I called, we discussed that I might need both the spring and cables replaced" for the garage door; the price for replacing the spring plus the cables was over $100 less than top-rated provider in my area. When the tech arrived the following morning, he was punctual, friendly and efficient. He determined that we did not need to replace the cables, and had the new spring mounted in a bit over thirty minutes. Would definitely recommend to my friends/neighbors, and would definitely use again!

-Brian C.

"I am extremely pleased with this company and with , the technician. The company needed to reschedule for the following day since the job" before mine took much longer than expected, but they called with sufficient advance notice. arrived on time and took great care during the installation. He determined that plates were put in on an incorrect angle during the original installation, and that could only be seen after the door was being dismantled. This turned out to be the reason I've had other problems with the door in the past. It is a single door that covers two garage spaces. Both this issue and the bent frame contributed to my current problem. He also reinstalled the garage door opener. was meticulous about cleaning up after the install, including wiping off any that were on the door. The door now operates very smoothly and as stated before, I am very pleased with all the work that was done.

Angie's Answers


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 Richmond


Automatic garage door went "out of " after power went out, off rail and off-kilter. Unable to close or open all the way. Mr. very rapidly diagnosed and fixed the problem; very pleasant, courteous, efficient throughout. Inspected door thoroughly at the end to ensure no more problems would develop. ...More A real expert with garage doors!
- David E.

We had to reschedule the service due to bad weather -- the service provider was very professional. They arrived promptly and performed the service quickly and thoroughly. I will definitely use them again.
- Suzanna S.

Arrived on time. Came the same day I called about the problem. Clearly explained the problem and showed me what was going on. Explained how he would fix it and what the cost would be. Very professional and considerate. So far the door is working well. Would definitely use again. I don't know how to evaluate the price but I was very pleased ...More with the responsiveness, punctuality, professionalism and service.
- Ann H.

Fantastic!!! We had constant problems w/our "popping" back open for years. Had another company come out and was told the problem was fixed. It was not. came out and realized the real problem behind the door malfunctioning, he quickly and efficiently fixed it and we have never had a problem since. ...More Just a very kind, professional and thorough employee. Highly recommend them!
- alison E.

Everything went as we expected and the door is just wonderful. I wanted a black door, so it had to be ordered. Paid half done to order the door. It arrived when we were told it would be. The installation was arranged according to schedule and done in a day. The installation was done as requested, was not hurried, but installed perfectly. We also had ...More a remote put on the outside of the house with a key in code. The installer had this in his truck and was able to do it despite it being a last minute request. All is well, The door is very quiet. We upgraded the door and the opener.
- Connie B.

Barber, the company's owner, was very prompt, pleasant and professional in all our contacts. He and his men removed the old door and installed the new one which is insulated and has a row of windows. Our garage is older and does not have a perfectly square and standard width door frame. was able ...More to use molding to make a good fit. He also connected the new door to our old opener.
I would not hesitate to call this company again or to recommend them.
- Terry L D.

I received a quote from 2 garage door firms and chose . I was told it would take 2 weeks to get the door I wanted. After not hearing from them for 2 weeks I called and was told they had no order. They put me in touch with the salesman who checked his records and dissevered that he had not placed the order. So he offered me another, ...More more expensive door for the same price that was in stock and it was installed 2 days later. Took about 1.5 hours. So despite the glitch, I was eventually very pleased with how it was handled and the final result.
- Allen H.

The owner, Barber and his assistant arrived on time and had my garage door installed in a matter of a few hours. They were quick and efficient. He even fixed one of my openers that hadn't worked in several years. I couldn't be happier with my new door. It makes all the difference and after getting several much higher ...More bids for the same door and seeing the quality of the work performed, I feel I made a good decision to go with Commonwealth. This is a family run business with great customer service and I will happily recommend them.
- Barbara W.
