“Absolute Garage Doors came out because a spring had snapped. It was loud and I had never heard that loud boom before. We moved in the house in 2015 and had never had the springs break before. We did not know how old the garage door springs were. Absolute Garage Doors came out and examined the springs. He said the springs had a year stamped of 2011. 6 years old. The technician advised us to change both springs. He gave us a discounted price if we changed both. It was a no brainer. He said he recommended us to change both since they were both the same age. The other spring could break tomorrow or next year. Not sure. The technician was able to a full complete service and tune up on the door at no additional cost. It made the door and the motor so much quieter. It glided smoother and at ease. The technician recommended to replace our plastic rollers with the neoprene ball bearing rollers for our garage door. He showed us the two different kind of rollers and explained the long run of the two. He wrote on the receipt and the price and how long the price would be valid to replace the rollers. They validate it a year. He showed us how to grease the garage door and check the balance and the weight of the garage door. So many tips and very helpful. We really appreciated his expertise and patients. Thanks Absolute!”
