Garage Door Repair – Don R. Riverside, CA
Absolute Garage Doors in Riverside, Ca came out to my house over the weekend and replaced my garage door springs. Our opener, over 20 years old, just stopped working and we couldn’t open the garage door by hand. My wifes car was stuck inside, and we had no idea why we couldn’t open the garage door by hand after releasing it from our craftsman opener. We contacted Absolute Garage Doors and they came out same day. They showed us our spring situation. The springs were not broken, but they were “shot” or “lost all tension”. I wasn’t 100% clear. I didn’t understand why we had to replace a part that was not broken. My wife told them to do the work. Once it was done. My wife could open and close the door with one hand! I then understood how the springs have just a big part of the garage door opening and closing. Thank you Absolute Garage Doors for your excellent service and expertise.
