Question DetailsAsked on 2/24/2018

I paid ~1500$ for new opener, chain, springs, rollers, drums and cables and bearings installment. is if fair?

My door stopped working and technician said i had broken opener sprocket and chains because of door imbalance. He also said i need to replace springs, rollers, drums and cables and bearings. he worked for 2 to three hours. Did i overpaid?

I got life master 8360 W 1/2 opener.

If you are talking a true rollup door - where the door coils up inside a metal shroud over the door, like many commercial buildings use, maybe in the range because basically the whole unit has to come down to do that - and pretty much always a 2-man or 3-man job too.

If you mean a regular roll-up segmental or panel door - which lifts up and lies horizontal above the car, supported by end rollers in tracks, I would say quite probably yes - I would expect (depending on brand and such) around $300-450 range from what you said he did, and sounds to me like he replaced more than needed. Below is a very similar question from someone who paid a bit less than you FYI - but for what you paid, in my area, you can get an entirely new insulated vinyl or a wood 2-car door installed, with or without the opener depending on what door and opener model one chose.
