Roberto was very courteous and explained the details of what he was doing. He also pointed out a repair I might consider having done (replacement of the bottom panel of my door) and asked the office to follow up with me on this. Someone did follow up with me and since replacement of the bottom panel is not an option and I would have to replace the door, I decided that I can wait.
Given the complexity of a garage door and opener system, there are a variety of different areas something could go wrong. If your garage door shakes or is very loud during operation, the garage door closes all the way only to immediately open back up, the garage door opens slowly or closes too quickly, or the garage door opener and remote aren't working at all, you should seek help from a professional garage door repair specialist.
After thousands of cycles opening and closing your garage door, you may start to hear it getting louder and louder. This is relatively easy to notice. What you may not easily see is that after years of operation, and possible maintenance neglect, is the dirt and debris trapped in the roller bearings. This can lead to the rollers turning inefficiently causing bent tracks and rollers. Eventually, if the rollers are in very bad condition, the door may come off the tracks or bust loose from the roller hinges.
Center and level the first section after you install the brackets. The door must be level even if the floor isn’t, so use shims under the section to level it. The rubber gasket on the bottom section will fill the gaps created by an unlevel floor. To hold the level in place, tape it to the section. To hold the section in place, lightly toenail a 16d nail into the frame and bend it over the section. Add brackets and rollers before setting them in place and stack one section on top of another, toenailing as you go up.

With garage door installation costs, these numbers also include the actual purchase of the new door and other hardware, including the tracks, adhesives, connectors and fasteners. Keep in mind that if these numbers seem extreme, garage door replacement and upgrades can yield, on average, one of the highest returns on investments for homeowners — with an expected 85 percent.

Torsion springs have three advantages over extension springs: They’re quieter, safer and easier to fine-tune. Torsion springs are quieter because you don’t have a spring knocking against a roller track. They’re safer because when a spring breaks, it usually stays on the bar. Finally, you can fine-tune the tension on a torsion spring so the door is perfectly balanced. Setting the tension on torsion springs has always been very dangerous, but torsion and extension spring systems with easy, do-it-yourself tensioning (Photo 7) are available. If you don’t use one of these DIY-friendly, easy tensioning systems (Clopay EZ-Set Spring and Wayne-Dalton TorqueMaster are two brands), you should hire a professional to release and set the tension on a torsion spring.
This is the first time using precision to fix my garage door. From the call to schedule an appointment to the work that was done, all went smoothly. They got a technician out the same day and within a few hours. My garage door got damaged pretty bad and I thought I was going to have to replace the whole door or that they would try and sell me on buying one, but Jimmy the technician, which by the way a very personable and knowledgeable guy, took the time to explain and show me what needed to be replaced (drums, cables and springs) and why without trying to sell me on anything I didn't need. He also took the time to show me how to do proper maintenance on the door so that it last longer. Once he finished he noticed that the belt on my garage door opener was about to break and pointed it out to me, which I'm happy he did. That could have been a costly expense if not caught early. I like that he didn't mind me watching and asking questions the whole time he was here or tried to sell me on anything I didn't need. He took his time and made sure the door was working properly, which my husband and I feel it works better now then it ever had before. It opens and closes more smoothly and quietly. Jimmy also left everything clean and finished in a timely matter. I highly recommend this company and Jimmy!

If your door feels heavy, it is likely that your springs have started to wear down and are no longer capable of bearing the weight that they once did. Now, don’t worry, just because a spring is starting to lose its strength doesn’t mean it will snap at any moment. However, simultaneously, a weak spring isn’t any safer to try and repair on your own.
For most homeowners, the garage also functions as the primary entrance to their house. With repetitive daily use, your garage door can experience normal wear and tear and require professional attention. The trained and experienced technicians at Kitsap can help you with any repair needs you may have and will expertly service any garage door brand or type.
The following instructions can be followed by most do-it-yourselfers. You will need a second person to help you at the beginning of this tutorial to raise the door so that you can replace your torsion springs. These instructions are for replacing two springs on a self-storage roll-up door, also known as a mini-warehouse curtain door, that have the typical self-storage style loops on each end of the springs.
Now check the springs. There will be just one on a single-car garage, two on a two-car garage. Roll-up doors are operated by torsion springs, controlled by cables on pulleys. Two-car models can be adjusted by pulling the cable further through the plate above the door, then knotting the end to hold the newly established tension. One-car roll-up door springs should only be adjusted by a professional, as there is such a great amount of tension on the one spring that you could be injured when trying to adjust it yourself. Swing-up door springs are hooked on each side of the door into special notches or holes. To adjust the tension on these springs, simply move the spring hooks to the next notch.
