"Excellent company to do business with. They gave me a quote over the phone and stood by it even though my door was not a standard door. They had to come out twice" no extra charge to me. The guys that came to my home were professional, prompt, and knowledgeable. I would use them again...

"I was expecting to have to replace the entire 20-year-old garage door since one of the panels had a break in it. Had been advised by another garage door company" that replacement was the only solution.
company was able to save the door for many more years of service by adding metal bars to each panel of the door to provide stability. The old spring broke in the process so it was replaced with two new springs. The old rollers were replaced for quieter and smoother action. The workman waived the service call charge. All in all, I was able to "save" the door for about 25% of the cost of a new one. I also appreciated that when I called to make the appointment, I was able to schedule it right then and there and not have to wait for a call back. If I had been available, the repair could have been done in one day; because of my schedule, it was done the 3rd day after my call.

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 Caro

They came out on a Saturday morning after I contacted them just the night before. After assessing the situation they determined that they needed to replace the entire system instead of just the springs. The repairman did an excellent job of explaining the problem and everything they needed to do. They came back first thing on Monday and installed the new spring system, and additionally gave us some maintenance tips. They also installed struts to support two cracked panels on the door at minimal cost. I'd absolutely recommend them going forward (and already have to a co-worker).

He answered my phone call immediately. Said he would arrive in 2 hours and he did so. He diagnosed my problem quickly and I gave him the go-ahead to do the repair. He and his co-worker completed the work in about an hour which was consistent with his prediction. I am very pleased with his responsiveness, trust-worthiness and the quality of his work. Excellent!

Our garage door overhead cable came off the spool and wrapped itself on the bar when lowering the door with an obstruction in the way.

came out in the same day, assessed the issue, provided a quote and performed the repair. They are highly reliable, professional not fancy, and give an an honest assessment and do not oversell or try to pad the work as others in the trade. This is a very basic straightforward firm that performs what is required.

came early, which was wonderful--assessed the problem and was able to fix it in 5 minutes after three tries by previous garage door provider. We went ahead and ordered three replacement garage doors, having been very pleased with the professionalism and punctuality of Perfection.

Our garage door stopped working due to a spring breaking. My husband couldn't get his car out and needed to because he had work that day. We called them up and they responded quickly. They arrived on time, fixed the spring, and were on their way. They also did something to stop the garage door from making a loud noise whenever it was opened or closed.

came to give me an estimate the next day. Other companies gave me appts for Monday and Tuesday. He gave me an estimate quickly and told me when he could do the job. Very professional. Estimate very reasonable. I liked his demeanor and the fact that he was local, he told me where he lived, he knew my neighbor, etc. I decided to go with

right after talking to him and he immediately scheduled the work; said he'd start at 8:00, I told him whenever... That morning I looked out the window and surprise! --they were already working. It was about 7:30-45. (!)

was working along with two other guys, all friendly and professional. He did not try to sell me a new motor even tho mine is prehistoric. He repaired the rail from the motor ( it was bent ) and did not charge extra. I believe the whole thing took 2 - 21/2 hours or so. They cleaned up (and even swept up a mess from a previous contractor!

also gave me an estimate for replacing the back door of the garage and another... Would i recommend? Absolutely! Totally stress-free experience. A pleasure.
