When hanging holiday lights, the safest power source is the nearest outlet. If that’s not possible, look for an appropriate extension cord or a power stake.
Learn how to safely and effectively put up holiday lights around your garage door by using the correct fasteners to hold the lights securely.
A garage shields your vehicle from winter’s elements, but the door can freeze to the floor. That could damage your garage door if not taken care of properly.
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 -

Garage Door Installation And Repair reviews in Olive Branch
The tech was very courteous, performed the repair perfectly and was in and out in about 30 minutes.
did i tell you the price i was quoted (before
Using them again on a couple of projects I have scheduled for 2015
Furthermore; when I told him I would think about it and get back to them, he tried to push the sale, saying that they typically only leave quotes for new installations, and acted put out that I would not commit to a sale.
I had another company out, who confirmed my deduction, and told me there was nothing wrong other than the broken spring. This other company replaced both springs, in less than 30 minutes, for a total of $199 + tax.
Looking at it, it was obvious that the large spring that's wound around the horizontal shaft mounted on the wall above the door lintel was broken.
I called this provider based on Angie's list ratings. The service manager gave me a quote on the probable price for replacing the spring and we made an appointment to have the work done.
When he was finished replacing the spring and properly tensioning it he did some quick routine maintenance on the door (lubing moving parts - tightening fasteners that had worked loose). He instructed me how to do so myself in the future.
My experience with this firm was entirely positive and I have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
