"He came with only an hour's notice and he fixed the door in 30 minutes. That saved us lots of problems with caregivers coming in and out of the garage.

"
did way more than this service call reflects -- we had an issue with our liftmaster garage door opener that has a lifetime parts warranty." after
came out a few times to reset the unit (it was failing to stop on its track) he recommended that we call liftmaster for a replacement (under the warranty liftmaster provides the parts, but we have our own provider install). when i called liftmaster i had a terrible customer service rep (who essentially wanted me to take the unit apart before she could diagnose the issues and wouldn't believe that
had already done this). i called
and asked whether we needed to just forget the old opener and get a new one, and
instead contacted liftmaster and dealt with them, securing a new opener for us, which he installed today. he was super busy and i know it was time out of his already overscheduled day to get our job in, but he put us in anyway. i totally appreciated his attention to detail, help beyond the call of duty, and super-professionalism.
has been our garage service professional for years - not only has he dealt with our garage door opener issues in the past, but he installed a new garage door for us a few years ago that is beautiful and works great. he is amazing -- totally professional, dedicated, and knowledgeable. he's the best!

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.

Garage Door Installation reviews in Evansville

I Called for service appointment on Monday and received an appointment for the next afternoon.
Evansville Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
showed up on time , evaluated the problems quickly and explained how he would repair the door. Within an hour he had installed the parts and the door works great. One thing worth noting is that as a senior citizen I felt very comfortable with his polite manners and no high pressure attitude. I would recommend him highly and would use him again for sure.

I thought that the tune-up went well until they left and the same noise problem was still there. I hired another garage door company, Arizona's Garage Door Doctor, and their technician did a better tune-up and identified the problem, which was hot paint from the sun on the weather stripping that was causing the door to stick before opening. The garage door is now quiet and smooth.

The service was good. The technician performed the tune up in a timely manner. The main issue with my garage door the tech was not able to solve, so he refunded me the money for the 2nd door. I appreciate that. I will definitely use them again in the future.

When I came home to find one of my garage door cables had snapped, I was upset. I called
Evansville Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
based on a recommendation from a family member. They were extremely polite and helpful on the phone and were able to get someone out to the house later in the day. While they could have only replaced the obviously broken cable, they were proactive in pointing out to me that the springs and wheels for the same garage door were also in need of replacement, which I appreciated--better to fix things now, then wait for another disaster! I was very pleased with the helpful assessment, professionalism, and courtesy. I would definitely hire

again and would recommend to anyone else needing garage door repair or replacement.
