installed this garage door over nine years ago, and I've never had to have it serviced. I did
the hinges periodically." Lately door sounded like it was rubbing on something when it went up. Called the company, and they were able to come ut the next day. Gave me a two hour time window.
called before he came to say he was on his way. He looked it over and raised and lowered the door then said it just needed a tuneup. He lubed the big spring, checked the cables, lubed the track underneath, and showed me how to do it myself and what to watch for. When I asked, he checked the gasket on the bottom of the door. I told him to put a new one on. He did. He was very polite and professional, and my door is working like new. I'm pleased and relieved.


"After calling at 7:30 a.m.,
arrived shortly after 10 a.m. He reviewed the situation, recommended a repair plan, and outlined the options" and cost. Within an hour, he was finished and it's like I have a new
. I am delighted with the service I received from

Garage doors can open and close on their own. Although it's rare, here's what to look for.

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!




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 Dothan


Called and talked to
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
about my broken opener and asked for pricing on replacing it. He gave me 2 options for Liftmaster and
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
as well as belt or chain drive. Based on our discussion we settled on a
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
belt drive unit. They were having a special on the
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
unit including 2 remotes, as well as a keypad and installation. We called back the next day and talked to
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
and made the appointment. He was very flexible and able to work within our schedule. He gave us a 2-hour window for Thursday afternoon and said he would call 1/2 hour before he arrived. On Thursday,
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
called and said he was on his way. He arrived on time and got right to work taking out the old opener. He was very pleasant and knowledgeable about his work. He had the new opener installed just as fast and did a very professional job. He spent considerable time when he was done demonstrating the operation of the unit as well as all of the accessories. The whole thing took about 45 minutes and he was gone. He cleaned up and took away the old unit as well. I would definitely call him again.
- William M.

Everything was great!
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
called 30 min before he arrived as I had requested. Installed opener quickly (~1 hr). Cleaned up and removed all remnants of old opener. And then thoroughly explained all of the functions of the new garage door opener. In and out in a flash.
- Carter R.

These guys are wonderful! Very prompt service, actually wanting to come out the day we called them. We strung the process out for three days due to our schedule, and
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
was always willing and able to accommodate. We live in a house that is ~25 years old.
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
was old as were most of the components. I was ready and willing to replace the entire system, top to bottom. However,
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
demonstrated to use that we still had several good parts (including the motor after tune up) and saved us several hundred dollars in new equipment. With how fast these guys respond, should any of those parts ever break, I know they would be out that day to fix! We picked out the door we wanted, and they delivered and installed the next day. As I mentioned, they did a complete clean and tune-up of the motor... for FREE.

and his son made sure that the entire system was durable, safe and up to spec. I would definitely recommend these great folks to anyone, and will certainly rely on them again in the future should the need arise! They were very courteous, and saved me a few bucks at their expense.

- Troy W.

It went very well. Did all work as promised and explained everything to us.
Very nice young man and very professional.
On time and they came the same day because my wife's car was in the garage and she couldn't get out.
I would certainly call them again.
- Larry S.

Overall very well. Placed service call with
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
in the morning and
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
showed up around 12:30p the same day. I had expected a call 30 minutes ahead of arrival but since I was working from home, not having the call didn't bother me.
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
assessed the situation and gave me estimates on a couple options (replacing the torsion spring, replace with extension spring, or new door - my ask). He recommended replace with extension spring because when the torsion spring breaks, you're not going to know which results in the damage to the contact point when the opener tries to pull the garage door without the assist from the springs.
I had some damage to the bottom seal (probably a trapped squirrel trying to get out) that
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
couldn't remove because of the particular model of door. I had a
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
door that the bottom seal wouldn't slide out but
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
gave me reference to the nearest
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
distributor to find the parts.
We had some pleasant exchanges and I'd learned a few lessons of the trade from
Dothan Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
. The cost for the service provided was fair.

and the guys did a great job, they were on time and professional. Price seemed a bit high but I wasn't able to compare to another company so maybe it's not.
- Matt B.

Work was satisfactory. They came on a weekend to replace the door on a cold December. He worked steadily until the work was completed.
- Sharon L A.

The sales rep was great. He really knew his stuff. The crew was a good 1 1/2 hours late from the scheduled time, however the service was excellent. I don't mind having to wait a little longer to get good service. I would recommend them to anyone.
