On Monday afternoon the spring on our garage door snapped when the door came down after we had just backed out. As we were heading to a doctors appointment I did nothing about it until Tuesday morning. I called Precision Garage at about 8:30 am and their technician Aaron was at out home before 10am. He did a complete inspection and told us what was needed and also gave us an estimate on replacing the door as we have been thinking about that for sometime. He was very thorough and courteous. He explained everything to us. We decided to have new springs put in and order a new door. The springs were in within 20 minutes and we now have use of our door. They said it would be about three weeks for the new door to arrive and then they will install. We were blown away that we could get such quick service and so professional.There was no pressure and he went into detail about each kind of door that was available. Precision Garage is truly a great Thanksgiving gift for us. I'm anxious for the new door to come and I know we will love it.read more
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.
Chris was very professional & thorough. He arrived on time & was able to answer all questions that I had. I was extremely satisfied with the quality of the work he performed. I spoke several times on the phone with Mrs. Carol who keep me informed prior to, during, and after the installation of my garage door. She was very professional, easy to talk with and resolved any misunderstanding that I had.
Just in case you still want to know: You could glue foam panels to the inside of the door, but it would be better to just pressure fit them in place to avoid the weight of the glue. Any weight that you add to the door has the very real potential to unbalance the door. If the springs were a little "hot" or strong to start with, it may not be a bad thing to add weight. If the springs were the right ones, even a few pounds will un-balance the door. If they were too weak to start with, any additional weight is going to make it worse.
They sell insulation kits at the local big box hardware store and I cringe every time I see them. The box weighs about 15 pounds, which doesn't sound like a lot. It is definitely enough to un-balance a garage door. The springs are calibrated for the weight of the door, and adding weight makes the door "heavy" for the springs. This means that if you pull an operator disconnect handle when the door is in the open position, the door is likely to descend much more quickly than you anticipate. People have been hurt when a garage door came down on them and the momentum knocked them over. Only add weight if the door springs can be re-torqued or replaced with springs of the proper pull.
This is the second time we have used this company. A year ad a half ago our spring broke on our single garage door and this week the spring broke on the double door. Each time a very neat young man came with excellent communication skiills and knowledge of the repair required. They arrive right on time and fixed it on the spot in a very timely manner at a fairly reasonable price. I have always been a person that never wanted to have a repairman come without my husband home. Based on the quality of the two employees I have had the pleaser of dealing with, that fear is unwarranted for this company.

Aluminum garage door styles are similar to steel doors except that they weigh much less.  This prevents them from providing a great deal of insulation and they do tend to dent easily.  However, Aluminum is one of the least expensive garage doors that can be purchased for the home, they have a long lasting finish that does not rust easily and it is available in a faux wood texture that can complement the home’s overall look.

Lower the door and dismantle it by removing the hardware. Lower a double door by recruiting at least two helpers to help with the weight, and place a 2×4 block under the door to prevent smashing a foot or finger when it’s lowered. Remove the sections one at a time by disconnecting the rollers and brackets. If you have windows, tape them to help control flying shards if they break. Then remove the old roller tracks and remaining hardware.
No matter what kind of door you are installing, be very careful. The instructions that follow are merely guidelines. You should read your garage door manufacturer's instructions and owner's manual very carefully before attempting either type of installation. And if you're a do-it-yourself greenhorn, skip this project and hire an experienced professional. It may be more expensive, but garage door installation is on the higher scale of DIY difficulty.
When I called to schedule the repair service, I was transferrd 5 times and spoke with 6 service reps. Each rep was very confused by my request to get my garage door repaired. One rep actually told me that Sears doesn't repair garage doors. I had to tell her that Sears installed the door. When I finally found a rep who could schedule my service, it took one week for the appointment.

Because garage door springs and openers can degrade over time, it’s important to occasionally test this safety feature. With the garage door open, place a solid object such as a 2-by-4 board or a cinder block where the door will close. Never test any safety feature using your or another person’s body. With the board or block in place, press the close button. If working properly, the garage door should close on the obstruction and immediately reverse the closing operation when it comes in contact with it.
Though you can do some maintenance to your garage doors on your own, it may be a good idea to schedule routine inspections with a professional. A typical service call will include a manual inspection of the door and opener. Then adjustments can be made including spring tension, chain/belt tension, limits and force adjustments and door lubrication. Fees for this service vary from place to place, but garage door repairs typically cost between $147 and $340.

Spring Issues - Unless it is due to an obstruction of some type, uneven movement of your garage door is likely caused by a problem with the spring mechanism. Roll-up doors generally have one center-mounted torsion spring. The tension on torsion springs is great. Therefore, it is necessary to call a professional for any repairs to this type of spring mechanism to avoid serious injury. Because replacement of these springs or cables in a garage door can take at least two or three hours of labor, costs can average $300 or more.
Containment cables. When old extension springs break, the springs and cables become heavy whips that damage cars and even injure people. To solve the whipping problem, manufacturers now offer containment cables that run through the center of side-mounted extension springs. If you have extension springs and don’t plan to replace your door, make sure the springs have these containment cables, or have a professional install them.
Response time was excellent. Alex was punctual, friendly, and knowledgeable. I had a 23 year old opener that I needed to replace. He came out and replaced it. It didn't take too long and he was professional in every way. I hope this new unit gives the service and longevity of the old one. We will see. From my experience with Precision Overhead Garage Door Service and Alex, I would use them again and I recommend them.read more
R-value describes the power of the insulation in your door. The higher the r-value, the stronger the insulation. Those doors will have better energy efficiency than doors that have a low r-value. Basic doors have an r-value of 0.0 with no insulation. The first step up gives you 1-3/8” insulation at a 6.5 rating. Next, a 1-3/8” thickness with Intellicore has a 12.9 r-value. The best option on the market is the 18.4 r-value, which has 2” Intellicore insulation.
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.
If your garage door's spring breaks, stops working properly, or snaps, you'll lose the ability to open and close your garage door. This could happen due to a variety of issues, like normal wear and tear or from extreme temperature changes in a short amount of time. Spring replacements require a quick response from a garage door provider near you. Contact The Home Depot and a local, background-checked technician will respond within 24 hours.
 Alex was great at explaining what the issue was and fixed the door within minutes. He also pointed out some issues that we may experience in the future and made several recommendations. But he didn't pressure us into making a decision right then and there. He gave a quote and the approximate time it would take to complete the job if choose to have the additional work done. We were very please and satisfied with the service Alex provided.read more 

My opener also has 2 wheels on the top of each side of the door: one with a big spool of line and the other just a pulley wheel. So I also lubricated the axles of those spools. You can watch closely while raising/lowering the door to see where the parts spin and move. Now my door runs much quieter, so I must have done something right! Hopefully this will reduce strain on the motor and make it last longer.

Very professional and great customer service. I received a 30 minute courtesy call before they arrived and answered all my questions regarding my problems. They came to give me an estimate, but I was so impressed with them they installed garage door openers the same day. Even corrected panel issues from builder. I would definitely recommend anyone that is looking for a repair or replace. The Js'
I agree that these are the most popular TVs as a blend of technology and cost. But to say they are THE BEST TVs for watching footballs is way off. The 85 SONY XBR 900X blows all of these off the map for football, and it is still not the THE BEST. But it's the best under $10,000. Btw - there is no end to the discussion about what is the best. The results will always be spread across the different segments of buyers. I just think this article should say THE MOST POPULAR .. not the BEST.
