"I called this company for the replacement of my existing garage doors. They came and provided the estimate. After few days, I asked the estimate for better quality" door. They provided an estimate over the phone. I requested to send the estimate by email. They told me that they have to order this door and I have to deposit $300 to order it. I was fine with the condition and told them I will take some time to decide. After few hours, another person from same company called. I was thinking he has called to get my email id. But he requested the door and same day he forced me to buy the door without proper specifications given by me. Very very bad customer service. It is good I found it earlier. You have to see if they provide lowest estimate then there is a reason for it and the reason is bad customer service.

"The technician was very punctual and communicated with me the day of the appointment so I knew he was on his way. He explained in detail different issues with my" garage doors and explained all of the steps he was going to take during the repair. The technician was very easy to talk to and didn't talk down to me when explaining the workings of the garage door openers. The work was done in less than an hour and is working great!

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.

came within the designated time, calling to let me know approximately what time they would be here. After the problem was diagnosed, we were told what our options were. We chose to have them install a new heavier duty door opener. Both of these tech's were extremely knowledgeable and went the extra mile to make sure we understood how our new control and remotes worked.

Called and asked if they could come out today. They arrived within 1 hour, inspected the garage door and parts, confirmed springs needed to be replaced and said our rollers would last about 1 more year. I decided to have rollers replaced at the same time.

came out first thing in the morning to take a look at replacing our 1960's garage doors on our newly purchased duplex. He responded quickly to my inquiry and he was prompt. What I appreciated the most about

was that he suggested lower cost, practical options based on his years of experience instead of trying to oversell me on a product I originally called him to quote on. Additionally, he had

By being unable to open our garage door this morning we were effectively stranded without transportation. We called

and his response time was incredibly fast. He was here within an hour after our call. He explained in detail what happened and then proceeded to replace the spring. We are very satisfied with his work and his professional manner and would absolutely recommend him to anyone in need of a garage door repair.

On time arrival. Removed old unit and replaced it with a far quieter version (going from a chain drive to belt) with some new features. Install went well and seemed to take about as much time as they estimated. Cleaned up after and instructed on use of remote and mentioned a new feature of using a wifi connection and iPhone or Android. While the install was fantastic, the new door is great, would have been nice to get the wifi set up completed. So far, still unable to get a connection. However, I reprogrammed a previous external keypad and that has sort of alleviated the need for a phone connection. Minor complaint, otherwise very pleased.

The gentleman came out on the date we set and he provided the service in one day . He explained the prices of the different models of garage doors. I received and he placed the new motor in for me. It was very good service and I got a one year warranty on the new products.

The service was fine. They arrived within the window I was given. Assessed the problem with the old broken door opener and recommended that it be replaced with a new one. It has been more than a month and the new opener is working fine. The technician was nice and professional. He cleaned up the mess, gave me quick instruction on how to work the new opener, answered my questions and left.
