"They were professional, called 20 minutes before arriving, introduced themselves and told me what they would do, how much it would cost and they did it. Did not" a have part for the electric eye, told me they would get one and be back first thing the next day and it would not cost me anymore. First thing the next day, they were here put the part on the electric eye and were gone. This is the second time I have used this company and would recommend them to anyone.

"
, is great. Very professional and really went above and beyond with his services. I originally purchased a deal here on Angie's List" for a tune-up of my existing
opener for $29 and after meeting him I decided to have him install a
opener. His fee was very reasonable and I was extremely satisfied with the installation. He was programmed all of the equipment(remotes, floor safety sensors, outside keypad, etc.) and was very thorough in explaining how to operate the new garage opener. He also repaired the
lock and repaced the
bottom seal at no extra chargesin labor. Overall I was extemely satisfied and will utilize his services again..

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.

He fit us into his schedule right away. Arrived on time and found the problem as soon as he walked in the door. Made an adjustment to the photo-eye and the problem was solved. Since our house was on the way to his regularly schedule job, he did not charge any travel time, just for the short time he was at the house. If we have need for a handy man in the future,

My old garage door (at least 50 years) began to separate from the doorframe. Since I wanted to replace it with a new motorized door with remote control, Apple bid on such a door with installation. The price was competitive. It turned out that the doorframe was badly damaged and would need extensive repair. I was disappointed that Apple could not do that part or arrange to have it done as part of a total package. However I did arrange with a contractor for the doorframe repair and the installation of an electrical outlet needed for the motorized door; within a week of completion, Apple installed my new door. It has worked well since.
At the same time that I asked for the garage door estimate, I asked for a bid on the installation of a storm door to replace the one at my front door. However, Apple's bid was close to double the bid for a similar door from Lowes; I had Lowes do that job, which was also quite satisfactory.

First of all, I will think twice about purchasing an Angie's list deal I spent $59 for a few shots of WD4 spray and that was it. It started on Friday

24, 2015. We had a scheduled time of 9 to 11:00 for

. My wife took of work and waited until 11:00 and then called.
Manchester Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
had no record, or forgotten about this appointment. I have an email confirmation of it. He kindly scheduled it for the next morning at 8:00 am. He was on time. After an inspection of the sensor, he noticed the lens was cracked which sometimes causes the door to stop. To fix that he wanted $150, the part is under $30.00. He proceeded to spray the rails of the opener and that was my service. $59 for a few shots of oil. I have ordered the part and will fix it myself.
