"I left a message requesting for a service and I immediately received a reply from them. A very nice and accommodating guy came and was willing to install a new door," even though I didn’t purchase it from them. In the end, he gave me a good service and billed me reasonably. This was all done in one day. It was genuinely good service and they show care to their customers.

"I called
, he said they were busy and couln't get to me 'til next week. After I explained my problem he said "how about tomorrow" afternoon?". I told him I'd be home after 3pm, he said that'd be fine. Then due to a kid related schedule change, I called back the day of service to tell him I wouldn't be home 'til after 4pm and I understood if that was too late. He told me he'd make it work. He sent out his son
, who is a very intelligent hard working young man. He went right to work and had everything fixed in abut an hour, despite the tight working conditions due to a crowded garage. The final bill was $101.81 which included a $4.00 part, driving all the way out here( I live in the country), labor and tax. VERY IMPRESSED! Nice to see an old fashioned father and son type of business with a good business ethic. I'd use them again in a heartbeat!

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 Theodore


Broke a spring on a double garage door. Since the springs were 11 years old, we needed to replace both. After researching on Angies List, we called

in the morning and they completed the repair in the afternoon. We appreciated the same day service. Since it was a standard repair, they quoted a fair price on the phone.

Very happy with the service. The iron gate in our driveway, which operates on an electric swing mechanism, had gotten stuck a number of times and wouldn't open or close. I had another company come out twice, who charged me $125 for each service call and didn't fix the gate. The other company offered to replace the entire unit for $2100+, which I wasn't willing to spend, so a hunch I called

. He was on time, professional, efficient and was able to fix the gate, which basically required two new batteries and adjusting the limit switch. He threw in a new remote, and the bill came to $295.
If I had called him in the first place, I would have gotten a gate that was repaired right the first time, and for only a few dollars more than the other company that didn't fix anything! Now I know for next time. Anyway, the gate is working fine 10 months later, no problems. Would definitely recommend!


The iron swing gate for our driveway, which is on an electric system, was not opening and closing all the way, so they came out to service it for $125, which just consisted of a
Theodore Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
and a reset. Sure enough, a couple months later it was still sticking so I called them again. They came out again for another $125 service charge and weren't able to fix it. So $250 down so far without any resolution. They quoted me $2,178 for a whole new system, which I wasn't ready to spend at the moment.
Instead, I called another company who came out, replaces the batteries, adjusted the limit switch, threw in a new remote, all for $295. It's working fine 10 months later, so I'm glad I didn't shell out the $2100+ (and wish I had called the other company first).


Excellent! I have already recommended them to a friend. I called on sunday after my garage door open broke, they sent a guy out a few hours later for an estimate. 4 days later they installed a new door. The company kept me updated, was knowledgeable and professional, nice and polite. Great service all around.

Came out and looked the job over, ordered replacement bottom garage door panel and installed when when the part came in from the manufacturer of the garage door. Adjusted and lubricated hardware. I dealt with "

" and he was courteous and did an excellent job in a timely manner!

Got a great looking garage door. Was very happy with the results. The installer was very friendly and I got a beautiful aluminum garage door for a reasonable price. They also repaired another door on one of my rental units.
- Lionel D.

After the initial inspection the contractor called me and said that springs on my garage door are broken and need to be replaced. Proposed a quote. I agreed over the phone and he did the repair the same day. Good so far.
Not so good is that he damaged the garage door and use company's ad sticker to cover the hole. I did not bother to call back and complain, however this is not professional (neither damaging customer's property nor keep silent about it).
- Nick M.

I paid for a special deal on Angie's List and was contacted quickly after doing so. Set up an appt. between the hours of 9 to 12. I had to leave at 11:15 for an appt and a friend was here when the technician finally came. He was late by quite a bit and didn't call to give a heads up. Otherwise everything was good, he lubed

and fixed whatever was making the thumping sound. I was satisfied and obviously the price was excellent!
