Angie's Answers

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 Independence

My garage door started not closing completely and opened again. I had to try to close again a few times before it "settles" down. After a few weeks, I had found out that one of rails was misaligned and the top two part of the door were bent so the door stopped closing at all.
I called four different places from Angie's List to get the quotes. All but one responded pretty quickly (the one followed up after a few days). One contractor came out in-person and took a look at it, and that was pretty good experience. For
Independence Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
and other place, I sent pictures to get the free quote. The response from
Independence Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
was pretty quick and pricing sounded reasonable. I have old detached garage and just spent $20k to hook up to the sewer after the failed septic system, so I didn't want to spend too much money so I went with
Independence Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
because they had the most affordable pricing as well as carrying non-insulated door, which fit my need as well as my budget.

from
Independence Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
came out to take a look and do the measurement once I had decided to go with them. She came a bit later than the appointment time (like 15 min?), but it wasn't big deal because she called me a bit ahead of time that she would be a bit behind, which I loved. I worked with bunch of contractors 1.5 years ago and no one was neither punctual nor communicating well. Anyway, she took a close look at my garage door and explained me what they would do to replace the door as well as fixing the rails as well as the spring position. Also she explained what was done incorrectly by the previous contractor. She also gave me recommendation on the door when I asked her between couple of doors I was considering (insulated vs non-insulated). She was very honest and recommended based on the customer needs, not tried to up-sell bunch of options. She told me I would be fine with uninsulated unless I want to make a part of the garage as the workshop. Once I had decided the door, she gave me the ETA of the time the work would be done.
I got the call couple of days before ETA that
Independence Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
gave me for scheduling the work. They came out on time and finished the work much faster than what they had estimated (3.5 hours estimated but finished in couple of hours). The door is much smoother than before and it closes very nicely. Everything was done the same way that
Independence Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
described. Non-insulated door felt as sturdy as my previous door, if not sturdier (the new door is better than Home Depot door that I had before).
I would definitely recommend

to my friends.

Very efficient job. The technician,
Independence Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
, spotted the broken spring right away and replaced it. He suggested that I replace both - and I quickly reviewed on Google that confirmed it was the right thing to do. He was in and out in less than 30 mins. He also oiled the rollers when he noticed that it was making some noise. Overall a good job.

Owner promptly notified me following purchase of Angie's List deal and was flexible with scheduling an appointment. He called prior to arrival and was on time. He pointed out a frayed cable and recommended replacing the cable. He pointed out condition of bottom corners of door and explained implications of poor condition and shared pictures of potential outcome. We discussed purchase and pricing of a new door. Owner performed services as advertised and was respectful and knowledgeable. I would recommend and use this company again.

Bill returned my call within 5 minutes and came the same day. He went above and beyond what I asked for. He was courteous and professional. He showed me exactly what he did and why. Then he explained how things worked. He was here for less than 1 hour. I would highly recommend this company to everyone!! Thank you Bill.

Not well. We selected one of the springs the repairman suggested, but he insisted on using another more expensive one without explaining why. We repeated that we wanted the $150 one. When he handed us the bill, he had installed the more expensive one. After much back and forth, he finally charged us for the spring we had requested. This behavior is not good business practice, often referred to as "bait & switch."

Called this company to inspect our garage door on the 25th and
Independence Garage Door Companies Provider Name Locked
found that it had broken in 3 places so needed to be replaced. He was able to come back on the 28th and replace the door plus tracks and springs. He was on time and worked continually while here. My husband says that there was not one wasted motion in what he did. We are very pleased with the results and would recommend this company to anyone.
