I Specialize In Torsion Springs
I have the best prices on torsion springs.
It is my specialty.
You get over 300 cycles per dollar with our standard 50,000 cycle springs on most 7' high doors and over 500 cycles per dollar on all 7' high doors with my lifetime springs.
This is much better than the typical 50 cycles per dollar or less found elsewhere.
And since I only cover Menifee you get fast service unlike some places that cover a 60 mile radius.
(Look at the top rated Yelp companies and notice they usually cover over 100 miles!)
Do some comparison shopping
You have probably seen garage door advertising offering "Single spring starting at $165 Installed", "Double spring starting at $195 Installed", and "$99 discounts".
What are you actually getting and for how much?
What do you need to know in order to ask the right questions to get the cycles per dollar?
You Need To Know Your Door
Most homes consist of a two car garage that is 7' high that is either non-insulated or insulated with vinyl backing.
However, you need to verify this.
1: Measure the height of your door. Most doors are 7' high.
2: Is it a single car garage door or a two car door?
3: Is the door insulated and if so is it vinyl back or metal back?
That is it. Now you are ready to start calling around.
Ask These Questions
Now call around and ask these questions:
1: What is the total price with hardware, labor, and tax given the above information for your door.
Move on to the next company if they can not tell you an exact price over the phone.
(Many companies will charge well over $300 if you do not nail down the price over the phone.)
2: Now ask how many cycles the springs are rated for.
If they don't know you can assume they are using the industry standard of 10,000 cycles.
3: When can the job be done.
4: Where are they located.
Calculate The Cycles per Dollar
With the above answers you have enough information to calculate the cycles per dollar.
Simply divide the cycles, or 10,000 if they did not know the cycles, by the complete price.
For example 10,000 cycles / $200 = 50 cycles per dollar is standard.
It is usually somewhere between 33 and 60 cycles per dollar.
Not with me though.
On standard 7' high door our springs typically get over 300 cycles per dollar.
Quite a difference.
That is why I say my prices are the best.
Our lifetime springs are an even better deal.
They get more than 500 cycles per dollar on a 7' high door.
They do cost $365 but you'll never have to worry about them breaking
The house will collapse first.
In the industry 1,000 cycles is often considered equivalent to one year.
This would mean my lifetime springs are meant to last between over 150 years.
However I do offer a lifetime guarantee if the math isn't enough to convince you.
If our lifetime guaranteed springs ever break due to wear and tear I will replace them free of any charge.
"Lifetime springs" with other companies is a source of confusion.
Especially since industry standard for "lifetime springs" starts at only 25,000 cycles.
Since the typical person only lives in a house for eight years the "lifetime springs" will probably last for the original purchaser.
However when the springs eventually breaks you must pay for labor and tax.
And somehow that labor and tax always comes out to about the same as what they had originally cost.
So these door manufacturers and garage door companies charge a lot up front for the "lifetime springs" and then charge the same price for "service and tax" when they break in a few years.
Recurring profitable business.
That is why they sell "lifetime springs" that are only rated for 25 to 30 thousand cycles.
I'm more old fashioned and actually sell lifetime springs rated to outlast our lives and the houses.
Make Your Choice
These four criteria are fairly obvious.
Is the company local?
Can they fit the job in around your time constraints?
The cost per cycle?
And finally the total price?
Why Locality is Important
Would you want a company that is not local and must drive from Riverside or San Diego?
I find it unpleasant to drive across the 215 on Newport or Scott Rd.
Hence the reason I named the company "MENIFEE Garage Door And Opener Repair".
Think of what happens when you discover the company made a mistake after you paid them.
And all companies make mistakes.
Nobody likes to drive an hour each way to fix a mistake.
Nor are they ever inclined to give free estimates after a long drive.
Spending one quarter of their day driving 50 miles to you and back is going to cost.
That should be obvious.
So even having a company from Temecula or Murrieta is a problem.
Especially during rush hour traffic.
Despite the fact I am in Menifee and try to only service Menifee getting across the 215 during rush hour can take what seems like the better part of an hour.
Working Around Your Schedule
I like to work between 9-4 on Monday through Friday.
Usually I can get the job done immediately.
Or within a couple of hours.
I do not like to work on the weekends or at night.
Call me and if the job can not be scheduled for normal business hours I can probably still do the job.
I may charge you more though.
Why Our Total Price Is Often The Best
The cycles per dollar are the most important metric over the long run.
However sometimes you are planning on selling the house and moving in the next year or two.
In this case the total price is more relevant.
Surprisingly our total price is usually the lowest once you find out what the other companies will really charge you after they've been pinned down.
So despite having the best cycles per dollar price, locality, ability to work around your schedule, I usually also have the best total price.
That's because I buy the springs at bulk prices.
The springs come straight from the factory on large pallets in a huge truck.
Again... I specialize in springs.
