"
the door tech arrived right on time and within a couple of minutes diagnosed an intermittent short in the control line caused by an errant" staple. (not mine!) At that point, comfortable that he knew what he was doing, I left him while he performed a complete garage door inspection and maintenance routine. By the time he wrapped up about a half hour later the garage door was running smoothly and both remotes were re-programmed. He pointed out the issues with the previous installation, several of which I'd already known from the home inspector's report when I bought my house a few months ago. He was a very pleasant and well-spoken young man, the son of the owner as it so happens. His truck was immaculate, too - always a good sign for me.

"I called late in the morning and they showed up in the afternoon at appointed time. They were very friendly and very professional. I knew that I would need new springs" and pulley's before they came and that is the only work that they suggested. Neat, Clean, Quick and Gone. They will be the first people I call the next time I need help

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.

We lost several electrical items due to a surge from a thunderstorm including our two garage door openers. We called precision and they came out the same day and diagnosed the problem. Both motherboards had been damaged. Therefore they offered us an estimate to replace the motherboards as well as the cost to replace the openers with belt driven ones. Since our openers were over 10 years old, and the new ones carried a warranty on the belts and motors, we went with the replacements. The new openers are much more efficient and quiet than what we had previously. In addition, everyone that we interacted with from Precision were both courteous and prompt. They were very empathetic to our situation and I would definitely use them again.

, the technician was really great and worked around my physical disabilities, very efficient and friendly. I admit I don't write these things too well, but I couldn't be happier with the experience. There was a mix up on the price relating to using Angie's List. That was mostly on my part.

My 2 year old garage door opener stopped working after a thunderstorm. The lights would come on and it will try to move, but just stop. I called several companies.. They would charge for a visit and then just tell me I needed a new one for 500 bucks after looking at it for 30 secs...I was not convinced. I called affordable garage door co.

tried to troubleshoot the opener on the phone. When I told him that I had a liftmaster, he suggested that I try to get it repaIred rather than replaced. He also promised not to charge me anything if the fix did not work. I agreed to give it a try. He ordered a new board for me, came in and fixed it 2 days later. It took 15 minutes and the opener was working like nothing had ever happened to it. It cost me less than half. In fact he even offered me a discount. I am thoroughly impressed, and would recommend him to anyone who needs garage door work.

Great. He realigned the garage door, lubricated the the door, and for an extra $60 dollars replaced the warn rollers and rubber skirt on the bottom of the door. It opens and closes now without that clunk that would make me think that each opening would be it's last.
