"O’
Garage Doors Angies listed subject business and rated as A or B category services. Additionally, this business advertised same" services in local advertisement flyer. I called and obtained the details of Garage Tune-up/maintenance services from the O’
Garage Doors who ran special for garage door tune-up for discount price of $49.50 for $129.50 actual value.
(The service provider)did not ring front door bell, instead entered in the back side of the house, had already parked his pick-up in my drive way without my permission. His black pick-up did not have business sign or a logo, uniform or a business identity. He wore black shirt and a short pant, did not demonstrate he represented reputable O’
Garage Doors. He profiled: a heavy smoker, sprayed heavy scent to
the smoke smell before attending the duty call, he was observed unfocused, lazy and unprofessional. He placed his old ladder with support of my garage parked Lexus car. In less than 10 minutes, he stated is work was done. I asked him, did he lubricate and checked all the areas for improved performance? He said his work did not include lubricating hinges. The work was not satisfactory as the garage door noise was not eliminated to low level after his visit. I called his dispatch office to report this matter, I was stated his manager
will return the call. O’
Garage Doors did not call.

Angie's Answers

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.

They did a great job. My old door was in terrible shape, practically unusable. When they arrived they removed the old door, including the springs and cables. Come to find out the new door was about 2 inches to short, and would not work. A new door needed to be ordered, which was going to take a couple of weeks.

installers took my old door, repaired and reinstalled including new springs and cables, to a working condition. About 2 hours of work with no complaining. When the second door arrived they removed the old door and installed the new one, and hauled away the old door. A great job!

I highly recommend

, with

quickly diagnosed the problem. The coupler on the Genie Screwdrive opener was broke. Arranged to come by the next day with the part and then replaced part which fixed issue.
Recommended some easy maintenance that I could do to reduce the door noise when its opening/closing.
Very pleased with service.

Scheduling a date and time to get a quote was easy and the sales rep showed up right on time. Although their quote wasn't the cheapest I received, I chose
San Francisco, Garage Door Repair Companies Provider Name Locked
because of their Angie's List rating and outstanding warranty. They had the 16x7 door in stock and I scheduled the install for a week later. The 9x8 door had to be ordered and was installed a month after the initial quote. The installers showed up as scheduled both times and completed the work as promised. They did a satisfactory job of cleaning up after themselves too. The quality of the installation work was superb and my wife and I still

It went fine. He found one of the panels of the garage door cracked and added a piece of metal to stop that from continuing. Pleasant and courteous. Good experience.
