"They called ahead of time and were punctual. The serviceman was attentive and listened to my concerns. He explained what he was doing and the rationale for all" recommendations that he had. The garage door is now much quieter and has been consistently closing, which had been an issue before the service.

-Daniel M.

"Purchased the coupon for $125 that.included tune up & replacing rollers. Feel a bit of buyer's remorse since the real problem was the trolley which we had" to pay an extra $150 for.
was nice enough & he did arrive early. Did appreciate the same day service but feel overcharged. He lubricated the springs & other moving parts & did answer any questions we had. Overall a good service.

Angie's Answers


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


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.

Garage Door Installation reviews in Swansea


I have used
Swansea Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
twice to repair or replace broken garage door openers. Both times it went very smoothly. They answered the phone immediately when I called and were friendly and helpful. The repair persons came on time and did the work quickly and efficiently, and took the time to show me how the openers worked and to program my car system to open them. I would recommend

without hesitation.

I was so happy because they were able to come out promptly so that our painting project wasn't delayed. The repairman check everything, explained what caused the problem, cleaned the chain and adjusted the height on one of the doors to assure that it wouldn't crag on the chain. He also offered me valuable information about a door seal that I coould install that would keep my garage cleaner and keep out the cold weather this winter. He lubricated the rollers, check the springs and generally made sure that everything was is great working order.
- Mary D.

They showed up quickly which was appreciated but the price was highway robbery. If I didn't have to get my cars out of the garage I would have moved on to another vendor. $145 to retention, $85 in labor and 39.99 to spray

on the hinges that I had just lubed, plus tax. All said and done they were here for about 15-20 minutes if that. 5 of that was writing up the invoice.
I have to say I am furious with myself to have rolled over on this price. I asked if being an Angie's List member carried any benefits and it sadly did not. They said none of the coupons would cover the service they would be providing.
I watched the crew work and it was like a race pit crew so they weren't

around and clearly know their job.
I also asked them to price the installation of another opener on my 1 car garage. The price quoted was just shy of $500 even with me providing the opener. The company that installed the doors only charged $150 for the same service.

on time to arrival time but I have to give a spectacular fail for the price. Precision's reputation for extreme pricing did not disappoint on this visit. I would never use them again and can't say I would recommend them to others based solely on their price point.

What a great company to work with! They are beyond professional and courteous, beginning with the initial phone call to

and when

the installer comes out and does his thing. I called Friday morning at around 9 AM deciding to purchase a new garage door opener due to the old one having run its course. By 2 PM, I had a brand new opener installed and functioning, all at a really reasonable price! Obviously, how quickly this went down for me will not necessarily apply to everyone's experience with

but it should give you an idea of how committed they are to customer service. The quality of their work is fantastic as well.

took the time to also explain my new opener to me and that was much appreciated. If you need a repair or are looking for a new garage door opener to be installed, give these folks a ring. I am willing to bet you will not regret it!
- Jeffrey W.

It went very well. I called them in the morning and they were able to arrive 2 hours later and complete the job.

's employee arrived on time and approached the problem in a very professional manner. After quick trouble shooting he installed a new stronger ORB

for the top section of the door, which is where the door is attached to the motor. He then followed up with a complete lubrication of the door as well as re-inserting a wheel that came off the track. After that he followed me to our other home and did a follow up service to our other garage door that was making a lot of noise. Again the problem was resolved by lubricating the motor rail. I will definitely use Viking in the future. I respect their honesty, punctuality, and professionalism.
