"I called to schedule an appointment and talked to
who worked in the office. She was very polite and scheduled an appointment and then called" the day before to confirm. The technician came out and fixed the problem. The service was top notch and the price was very reasonable.

"I bought two deals through Angie's List for this company. It was the best deal I've ever purchased. My experience was extremely positive from start to" finish.
came on time, was very pleasant, explained everything he was going to do, and did a great job. This deal was especially worth it, as this company isn't trying to sell anything else or sign you up for an expensive contract. I highly recommend this company.

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.

An excellent experience. My 1957 garage door unexpectedly would not open. Checked Angie's List to screen repair companies as I did not want to call the big name company that I had done business with in the past (felt their prices were extreme). On the phone, the technician described an area for me to look at on the door assembly while we were on the phone together and I instantly identified what he was concerned about: a broken spring. He knew exactly what to advise me regarding cost, I approved, and he arrived to fix it within the range of time given. He was professional and courteous and also made a valuable maintenance suggestion. While he was on the premises I indicated to him another fix needed to the opener button in the garage, and he provided a perfect remedy to that as well.
One day later the electric door opener made a terrible noise while lifting the door to the open possition. I called the tech who had been here yesterday. He gave me the direct number to another tech with the company who was in the area on a service call. That tech arrived at my home within an hour, found a minor problem and fixed it within minutes, careful to explain and actually show me what had gone wrong. He was a wizzard. Because the minor problem today was somewhat related to the fix done yesterday, there was no additional service charge.

They crew came out right on time and worked efficiently and productively. They said it would be a one day project and it was. They took away all of the old doors and parts and left the garage very clean.

Great communication; prompt service. He fixed it and handled the interaction with the tenant and credit card over the phone. No complaints. Great price compared to the plumbers and whatnot.

On first call, we were finally able to get them to come, although they arrived much later than they had promised. They didn't have the new spring so they ordered it and fixed the existing spring. We partially paid for the new spring.
Three weeks later we called them - they did not call us. They promised to come the next morning - they said around 9 am. We stayed home to be there. They did not arrive at all that day and did not respond to phone calls. The next day, it was the same routine: they did not respond to calls and their voice mail box was full. We have no idea when/if they will come to finish the job. I would request the money back that we had prepaid but they are not responding and don't pick up the phone. Very frustrating! They do seem to do an okay job when they actually come.

I purchased the garage door tune up deal on Angie's List a few months ago and had

come out to my house. I knew that our garage door needed to be replaced, but I was looking to give it a few more months of life before we paid for a replacement.

inspected the door and advised me that the tune up would be a waste of my money because it was so far gone, and offered to credit us the price of the Angie's List deal when purchasing a new door. We had to wait a month or so until we were ready to schedule, but finally did and we are so happy with the new door.
