"Solid...called at 8am on Monday morning. Call back within 20 minutes. Service professional arrived by 11am. I thought the problem was bigger then it was. " made adjustments to the springs and cords, lubed up both garage doors and was off. Cost was for service visit. Impressed with prompt response and solution!

-Keith K.

"Garage door would not open in the morning. I called at 7AM and he was able to come out just two hours later to fix the door on which the spring had broken. He" also coached me through getting the door open so we could get our car out of the garage in the meantime. Came out as promised two hours later (actually came a little earlier than committed to) and did the work quickly and professionally. Also lubed all the hinges and roller bearings.

If you're lucky, your garage door opener will last you as long as 15 years. Here's how to pick the right type for your home.

Angie's Answers


Here's the video I used - I found it pretty helpful:


Garage door spring replacements cost me less than $100 by doing it myself and only took me about 25 minutes. As far as I know, changing out the garage door springs will solve most issues. I found at kit online at a place called garage door nation and just bought that one since they seemed the most legit and included all the extras.


I am usually not good with these types of things. I saved almost $500 by doing it myself.

Hope this helps!



Hello Salem,
The important thing to look at with the doors you are considering is the Gauge of the door (the thickness of the metal) and the grade of the hardware being used. there are nominal Gauge doors and true Gauge doors, A 25G (G = Gauge) Door is acutually .025 of an inch thick, a nominal 25G door is actually 26G or 27G (thinner) but reinforced to act like a True 25G. A nominal Door is generally weaker and still prone to dents and damage eiser that a true thicker door.
The Hardware  is very important, Are you going to get rollers with bearings and a nylon cap (quiet,long life), or a roller that is a plastic wheel on a metal shaft (no Bearings), or a metal wheel (noisy over time).
are you going to get the full body 14g Hinge (strongest and most supportive), or the medium body 16g-18g Hinge (narrower, thinner, not as supportive).
The last thing to consider is the Torsion Spring, from th price you mentioned I am guessing you are gettting custom doors , It is important that the springs you get are meant to last a while ask the companies what cycle spring they are going to provide? the one with the higher cycle life is definatly going to save you money in the future.
Based on experience and actualling working with both companies it is my personal opinion that Raynor provides better products and parts up front with out having to pay more but companies are different everywhere I always recommend asking about these things.
I hope this helped, please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

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


was great to work with and communicated very well. He told me an approximate time when he would arrive and when he was running late due to another install he was finishing up, he let me know. This is very much appreciated as many contractors don't communicate that well when it comes down to arriving late. He appropriately ...More explained the issues with one of my garage doors an
- Ron T.

First class service. Really appreciate showing me the specifics on how the worn rollers were about to fail. Also he compared both springs on two separate doors explaining the difference between the worn door springs in comparison with the perfectly fine spring on my smaller garage door. Really appreciate his honesty and great service.

I was given the recommendation of this company by a coworker, who was also happy with them. the technician was very nice and helpful. My garage door opener broke.

- Michael R.

The company was great! I called for an appointment. They were able to look up all my previous jobs. (They had replaced my spring and later installed a new insulated garage door.) I was able to quickly get an appointment, even for a Saturday! Thetechnician, Will, was prompt, courteous and friendly. He was able to verify that my opener would not ...More work and was really old without the safety features. We decided on a new opener. I had already done some research and knew I wanted an outdoor keypad and battery back up. The Liftmaster 8550W had both of the features. The replacement was quick, less than 2 hours. It was up installed and programmed when he left. Thank you so much. If we had to do it, no telling how much time it would take. I was nice to have it installed and working!

It went well. responded promptly on to an e-mail I forwarded to them on Sunday to set up an appointment for the garage door at my home to be serviced.
