"Garage door was making a lot of noise so I used a mail in coupon for $40
. Called them, got the appointment at the time of my choosing. Person" came and mentioned that the part which is broken will require springs to be removed that will cost $99 labor. He mentioned that springs are more than 10 years old and if you are replacing the broken part, might as well replace the springs as well. He didn't pressure at all and was willing do any service I asked even the original
only service. He gave me a quote over the phone but reduced it to match a quote from another company. Replaced the broken part, put in new springs, greased all the items. Garage door is no longer making that noise and working well. very courteous and gave us extra details. Work was finished on time.

"From first contact they were professional and responsive. The estimate was done on the day of initial contact. The installers showed up on time on the scheduled" day. They were capable, professional, polite and friendly. The installation went well without problems. I would certainly recommend
to anyone wanting a garage door. It was refreshing to have someone show up when scheduled--that does not happen too often in

Angie's Answers


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.

On 1/29/15, the torsion spring on our garage door snapped in half. We were unable to lift the garage door to get our vehicle out. We had used

The technician took the time to go through the entire door lubing all hinges and rollers and adjusting the opener and safety beam. He was very thorough as well as polite and worked quickly restoring us to proper working order. I believe the technicians name is

was great! They were right on time to the minute, professional, courteous and the price was more than reasonable. The job was well done and I am very satisfied. Would highly recommend to anyone.

These guys were great. I was actually able to get an appointment on the same day I called. Their technician came out on time, talked me through what he was going to do, completed the work within an hour. We talked over some options for new garage door openers, and some new pulleys. We just moved and the pulley wheels are likely the ones that originally came with these garage doors, when they were first installed. He's emailing me the estimate for those items. Great company to work with and will use them again.
