I just registered at Homestars so that I could write a review about Garage Door Depot. Both the people I spoke to on the phone and Nick, my serviceman, were friendly and seemed genuine about getting my door fixed not just promptly, but properly. Nick came within the 2 hour window and was very efficient with changing the broken torsion springs, but slowed down when fine tuning (leveling my garage door, adjusting the speed and force of lift, etc.) and making sure the door was lifting and lowering to its proper positions. Being a DIYer, I really appreciated him educating me on why the spring broke, and how he was honest in being unable to seal up the gap between the garage door and ground on either ends of the door (the concrete ground is sinking on both sides, and he pointed to the crack down the middle as evidence). My only wish was that Nick could have lubed the moving parts of the door before he left, as I had read up on other companies doing this. After paying for the service, I was surprised at the cost per torsion spring ($128 each) and out of curiosity, called the company a second time to get a quote on just the parts (a great benefit of this company since they're willing to provide you a quote over the phone, first!). I was told the springs cost $90 each to replace, and thus was saddened to discover I may had been fleeced. I was informed larger springs would cost more, though, and was pleasantly surprised when Kathleen from customer service suggested she would look at the paperwork the following day to see if there really was a discrepancy in price for the particular parts installed (I myself would suspect torsion springs to differ in price based on quality or size), and even offered to refund me the difference were one to be found. The price for the work seemed fair and Nick did state these were commercial-grade springs (should last 10+ years), so I'm sure that no difference would be found (perfectly fine to me, since this would then seem like a fair price for the quality parts). I can honestly say I'm very happy with Nick's work (friendly, cheerful, and efficient guy!) and the customer service at Garage Door Depot. Hopefully my garage door continues to function well, and if the torsion spring sure enough lasts the 10+ years I was told it would, then I know who to go back to for more repairs.
