"
showed up earlier than planned (he called first to be sure that was okay). My son was home when he arrived,
called" me at work before he got started to provide estimate. My son (who is never impressed--a teenager) was impressed, he said "
was all over it, really knew what he was doing!"

"The first time I used
was when we damaged our garage door and needed to have the whole thing replaced. We got the new door and all new rails," springs, etc. His price was much less than the other companies I contacted. We used
again about a year later when the motor needed to be replaced. Again, quick response, good price, and excellent work. Highly recommended

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.

Technician was exactly on time for the appointment--that was made the same day; tech quickly narrowed down the reason the garage door opener was not working; went to truck to get new parts and installed them. The door opener is now working perfectly! The technician was very professional, offered use and maintenance suggestions. The work was completed in 30 minutes. I HIGHLY recommend this company for ALL garage door needs, from brand new doors to all maintenance! Thank you,

Even though I wasn't a customer,
Cottage Grove Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
added me on to the already full schedule to provide same day service. I was very grateful as the alternative would have been that my garage door was left open all night. The service team assessed the situation, explained what the issue was, why it happened, how they would fix it and the price. They also tightened the cables on the other (not needing repair yet) door and were done in a half hour. I couldn't have been happier with

The quality of the workmanship is unknown as it is 2 hours from the time my garage doors were serviced, but I would say questionable as my garage door opener has mysteriously stopped working after an upsell attempt. It is an old opener so I'm willing to chalk that up as coincidental correlation.
My concerns with
Cottage Grove Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
and Garage Door Services are not with the quality, but rather the pricing and marketing strategy. To be fair, this is an issue of my own doing as I was overly trusting. However, I decided to do some price shopping while
Cottage Grove Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
was working on the door as I thought the $1300+tax he originally estimated was high—I just didn't realize by how much. Admittedly, I was taken in by discounts and coupons. At this point, I decided to stop work as it would have been cheaper for me to leave the door in disrepair,
pay for his time, and have someone else come in.
At this point, the conversation devolved into a litany of post hocs, strawman arguments, and ad hominems directed towards me "needing to man up." I have the feeling this wasn't the first time
Cottage Grove Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
has been in this situation as he knew precisely what psychological triggers to use to guilt customers to continue with the service and still pay outrageous charges. After extensive
conversation with
Cottage Grove Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
and someone at
Cottage Grove Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
Overhead Garage Doors (
Cottage Grove Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
?), we settled on $975+tax for both doors, though I did caution that I would be obtaining quotes from other providers and seek settlement through their alleged 100% satisfaction guarantee.
In the end, this was an abject (and expensive) lesson not to be overly trusting and to conduct ample research ahead of time. I can't fault
Cottage Grove Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
Overhead Doors or Garage Door Services for plucking a pigeon, but I do feel the need to warn others to stay far away from this company.
Some quick notes for others doing comparisons: I'm not going to comment on what is or is not reasonable labor costs, but for comparison, like parts could be sourced for $132.78±22.04 (n=6) per door at retail rates.

Nick was professional and on time. He explained all the different options and cost I had to update my garage door. My garage door was making a lot of noise when in use. He explained it was the motor that needed to be replaced. I purchased the angieslist deal for 89.00 for the quiet and reconditioning. He was able to get the door to stop shaking by replacing some items. I will use in the future when I am ready to replace the motor.
