"When they other company came out to fix
installation, they showed us what was done wrong.
must normally only install" residential doors, not commercial because we were shown how the bracing was not adequate for a commercial door and not heavy enough accessories were used. We contacted
to ask if they would pay the bill that we had to pay to fix their work, but they said no. They proved to us that they didn't know how to install or hook up the door, then they wouldn't stand behind their warranty. We wished we could do it all over again and would use another company besides
. They don't stand behind their work and they don't honor their warranty. We originally used
because they beat everyone else's price and they were available ASAP, but in hind site we should have used another company and paid a few extra dollars because at this point we've paid way more than the most expensive place when we were originally getting quotes.

"He came in, made some room and zap the olf unit was down. He then replaced the sensors and the push button control. He opened up the new unit and from his experience" knew just what to do. He had it all done in an hour, including programing the outdoor keypad and the 2 remotes. He was fantastic!

Here is a tip sheet from Angie's List, previously published:

http://www.angieslist.com/articles/garage-door-experts-give-maintenance-tips.htm

If a tilt-up door, probably about $150-200.

If a roll-up door, assuming you have not put in cabinets or anything that prohibits sliding the shaft sideways about 2-3 feet out of the spring to change it, then about $200-250 should do it for a 2-car garage door. If he has to disassemble the brackets to remove the springs because the shaft cannot slide sideways enough to get the springs on/off, then probably another $50-100.

If you have an automatic garage door opener, usually they will charge you $50 or less for tension adjustment, lube, and motor cleaning if scheduled on the same visit, about half a normal call cost.

One thing to consider - assuming you have 2 springs and an opener, unless the other spring is quite new, you should replace it at the same time, first because it will probably break fairly soon anyway and changing two is only about $50 more than changing one, and because the springs on both sides should be of equal stiffness - if not, then the door will be unevenly weight compensated and try to open cockeyed, increasing wear and risk of damaging the motor.

?

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.

The crew of father daughter came to inspect the garage door. Advised that I need to fix something else before they could do the job. Father was not very professional, was on the phone most of time and didnt care much about the job. mostly daughter was communicating. Ending up canceling the servicing and fixed myself.

JR came to my house to provide an estimate for a new garage door and garage door opener with installation. He went over his products with me and was able to explain the difference between the various products and the technology the each product uses. He was very helpful and got back in a couple days with an excellent estimate. I had him schedule installation at a time that was convenient for me and the workman came out and installed the new door, opener and removed all the old materials. What an improvement. I was very happy with the work that was performed and had them do another home that I own. This time it was 3 garage doors and 3 openers. Again, I was very happy with the price and the workmanship. Well done!

I called

Garage Door because of the ratings & comments on Angie's List. I am glad I did. These folks are real nice to deal with and professional. In fact, I called them again to fix the other garage door which just broke today. It's a Sunday and they answered right away. I'll use their service before anyone else.

His cost of repair was not fair of what he did. He took advantage of a single lady who needed help. He also did not have a service card and not ready to fix it even after I talk to him on the phone before hand.

He was very helpful and provided me with an honest assessment that didn't involve him providing his services. He recommend I try a solution from Home Depot and even offered to purchase the accessory for me and charge me his cost. I HIGHLY recommend using

The driver was not able to find my location after contacting me AFTER his appointment. We had several phone call exchanges and the installer just was not able to find a

that every
