"If you have garage door problems, use this company. Even though they were fully booked for four daysl they managed to squeeze me in within a few hours of my call."
came out, went right to work and fixed my problem. Probably spent more time with me than he anticipated but was extremely thorough and knowledgeable. Problem solved! Highly recommend!!

"The installer arrived on time. The garage door was the same model as had been earlier quoted by others, but at a better price. Not top of the line and not the quietest," but it operated fine and looked nice. Upon closer examination, the trim didn't seem wide enough. I phoned
, they special-ordered the wider trim and, after an initial mix-up in appointment dates, they returned to reinstall the wider trim at no charge. Overall, I was pleased & wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.

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 Tyler


My garage door spring broke late Monday afternoon. On Tuesday morning my wife called and the technician arrived within an hour. This is an old door. He had to go back to the shop for a part but was back promptly and replaced both springs. I got home from work and had a beautifully functioning door. Excellent service.

Responded quickly to my request. Installer came the day of my request and returned two days later to do the work. The job was done well. The installer was courteous and helpful.

We bought an Angie's list "deal" for the installation, and they were very prompt and helpful about what we needed. This was a very old garage door, so we were not sure it would work. They advised us we needed new rollers, which he installed and everything works very well.

I scheduled

for a $39 Angie's List garage door tune-up deal. The technician, Miles, called me a few minutes before scheduled appointment and said he would be there in about 20 minutes. I appreciated the phone call as I had totally spaced on the appointment and was about 20 minutes from home! I raced back home and arrived just seconds before Miles pulled into the driveway. Whew! Miles wasted no time in checking the garage door operation, making adjustments and adding lubricants. He noted the door made a loud popping sound after opening (something another garage door company couldn't fix). Miles determined the garage door was opening too high and causing a

is very personable, informative and professional. He explained what was wrong with the door and the work was done in about 30-45 minutes. He explained that we had one broken spring and he could replace it right away. The springs were at least 15 years old and expected life would not be much longer for the other spring, so we had both replaced. We would highly recommend

arrived on time (7:00 AM), and quickly assessed the problems.
He was finished in about 40 minutes, leaving the job site clean.
He gave me a few tips on maintenance that I was unaware of.
The garage door now operates with much less noise.

Called them up and they were able to schedule me right away on the day I requested. The technician called when he was on his way. He was punctual, courteous and efficient. I would definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone.
