I posted this review on several other sites. I'm doing this review to caution other people.

I needed a quick garage door fix because my torsion spring broke and my cars were stuck in the garage. I needed to get the cars out to go to work the next day.

These folks came out to my house within a few hours. I think the job was fairly well done. HOWEVER, I was way OVERCHARGED.

I was quoted for about $200 on the phone. When the serviceman came out, he said I needed 2 springs instead of 1 (for a 2 door garage). This sounded reasonable...the price went up to $300. Everything was fine up to this point.

Then, the serviceman said the centerbearing was inadequate and the lift cables (on the side of the garage door) were slightly damaged. He said they needed to be replaced, because it could be VERY DANGEROUS. What could I do at this point? I told him to go ahead and replaced them. I was charged $95 for the centerbearing and $79 for the cables (part cost).

I asked the serviceman how much those things cost at a place like Home Depot. He said he didn't know. This was peculiar because he seemed to know a lot about garage doors.

Afterwards, I called around other garage door companies and found out that the price for the springs was reasonable (though on the costly side), but I was RIPPED OFF for the centerbearing and the cables. They should have been around $10 each. So... I was overcharged for about $154. I confirmed the prices on Amazon...

I guess you pay for not knowing...

I encourage you to look elsewhere for your garage door needs.
