Garage Door Repair / Garage Door Opener Installation Testimonials
“The tech was knowledgeable and did the work fast. The garage door has been working great since then. I would recommend them for garage door repair.” Jerome B. Farmington, Michigan
“YELP REVIEW” “This is the most amazing company- December 2014- our garage door would not open. They were the ones that got here within an hour. Fixed/ so we could get our cars out. We then chose a new heavy duty insulated door- installed 2 days later. During this process they were thorough,reasonable, honest, and very nice. Bruce has a great team! Fast forward just over 2 months ( dead of winter). Our drive is very steep, so I like to back in so I can pull out. Today I ran errands and came home. I backed in – I went very slowly, I hit the button for the garage to open, I hit a patch ice and slid into the lowest panel. I called 5 Star and Bruce was able to send Shane out before 6:00. And our panel can be repaired. This is the company you want to use is you have ANY garage door needs! You will not regret your choice! Susan V. Farmington, Michigan

Garage Door Openers
Chamberlain & Liftmaster Openers
With so many selections and options in today’s garage door openers, you want to select your next opener, so you never have to think about it again for many years to come.
Some of the Chamberlain/LiftMaster openers we sell, offer special features like battery backup or a timer that will automatically shut the door behind you one to ten minutes later. While the door openers on our menu vary regarding power, noise, and options, they are all useful in the opening and closing your door safely for many years. Here are some essential attributes we like with the Chamberlain/LiftMaster door openers:
We found that the 1/2-horsepower motors were best suited for steel sectional doors under 300 Lbs. The 1.25 HP motors are more than capable of lifting wooden doors provided the door is properly balanced. Each of our featured openers is capable of opening a standard 7-foot door, and extension kits are available if your door is 8’ for $51.00
The Chamberlain 1.25 HP unit is forward-looking and designed to unite seamlessly with home computerization systems. They include a timer-to-close option that automatically shuts the door for you. The unit also has a backup power source, so you are never stuck with an inoperable door during a power outage.
All of the openers on our menu run on either a chain or belt drive system. While the chain and belt drive are quiet, the belt drive tends to be the quietest door opener, so it a must have if you have a bedroom above or nearby.
Chamberlain openers with MyQ technology, allow you to control your overhead door from a remote location through your phone. The door opener’s built-in Wi-Fi connects straight to your home Wi-Fi router. Allowing you to close your garage door from wherever you are through a MyQ smartphone app. The con, however, is an internet gateway ($58.00) is required for the MyQ to work on the majority of the models.
We offer Four of Chamberlain’s “VIEW” most popular models plus we also stock LiftMaster “VIEW” versions of similar products (Chamberlain manufactures Liftmaster openers). Though details and features may vary slightly, key specifications are identical, and so should be performance and overall satisfaction. Compare our installation package against Lowes, Home Depot or Sears. Chamberlain or LiftMaster – Chain Drive or Belt Drive 5 Star Doors has your opener
Garage Door Rollers
Many garage door rollers have unsealed bearings that no longer function after years of rolling back and forth in a dirty garage. The rollers condition can be so severe that the barrings within are frozen in place as the garage door cycles. The only thing you have to contemplate when you are going to replace your door rollers is the size of the garage door that you have. For a 7’ steel residential garage door, you will need ten rollers. Five-panel doors or 8’ doors will require 12 rollers.
Replacing garage door rollers can be dangerous and be should be done by a trained professional. If your rollers are worn or noisy, consider having Five Star Door replace them with quiet nylon rollers with sealed bearings that eliminate the need to grease
Garage Door Springs
Your Safety Is Our Highest Priority
Garage door torsion springs are a vital part of your garage door operating system. When a spring breaks it can jeopardize other components of the door system and become a safety hazard for anyone in it vinsanity.

From replacement springs and extension springs to Wayne Dalton spring conversion kits, we service every make and model garage door manufactured; we aim to offer the very best overall garage door experience possible.
Garage Door Spring Repair Common Industry Practices
But what if company A replaces garage door springs engineered to lift 210 pounds. Again the door is 30 pounds out of balance but this time it’s too light. To compensate, the service person would reduce winds onto the spring, and no one’s the wiser. By removing winds off the springs it may keep the door closed, but now there are not enough winds on the springs to keep enough cable tension on the spools up above. A light garage door is the most dangerous of improper balancing. You would not want the door to shoot up into the open position when the red rope was yanked. Doors that are too light can be dangerous to use. READ MORE…

“I would highly recommend these guys to anyone and will definitely use them again. Robert was our technician and he was fantastic. He came over within 15 minutes and had the door repaired and working normally with a half hour. We have a new garage door company!” Jason G. Grosse Pointe Woods
Wow, I told them my car was “locked in” my garage and asked if they could come over quickly. 60 minutes later, the garage door was FULLY FIXED. Yup, they scrambled, and my car is no longer a “garage prisoner.” Ryan C. Grosse Pointe Woods
“YELP REVIEW” – “Garage door spring broke on the door this morning. Called a few minutes before 9. Around 1:30, Andrew was here fixing the door. Very nice guy, who also gave some suggestions for upgrades, but indicated they could wait. I’m very pleased with the great service, and friendly attitude. Thanks!” Jeff H. Southfield, Michigan
“They were professional and very friendly! Did what they said, when they said! Very good customer service, Honest. Reliable and PROMPT!” Brian C. Southfield
“Could not be happier, Andrew spent the time to explain and make sure the garage door and opener was in excellent working order before leaving. For the amount of work he accomplished in 45 minutes, I would have expected to pay a bit more the quality of service he provided.” Deloise W. Southfield, Michigan
“Very courteous & helpful. I would recommend their garage door opener installation service to anyone. Helped program our third garage door opener and offered any assistance, if we had trouble with programming our garage door remotes.” Janice W. Southfield
“Andrew was very helpful stating the cost of the opener and showing me other things that need to be serviced. I did not feel pressured when he told me other services I may need in the future.” Josh M. West Bloomfield
“The spring on our garage door broke, and the door would not open. They came right out, replaced the springs, pulleys, and cables. They were courteous, professional and expedient.” Nancy R. West Bloomfield
“I love Five Star Doors! They are the absolute best. I will use them from now on. Robert was amazing. Five Star provided great service on my garage door and opener, but they have a big heart. Kudos to the owner that gave consideration to my situation.” Lucy B. West Bloomfield, Michigan
“YELP REVIEW” – “This is the second time I’ve worked with this company. First time I just picked up some parts. This time around I called because of a stubborn garage door that won’t close properly at a new house my wife and I bought. I initially called a different company that quoted me a five day waiting period before they could come out and a $85 service call. 5 Star doors came out the next day. The tech arrived promptly and was very professional. The door was fixed within 20 minutes. I fully expected to be charged a service call fee which I would have gladly paid considering the problem was solved in such a timely manner. However, I was not charged for the service. I tried to pay the tech but he refused and simply asked that I use them when I replace the motor and/or door. Service like this is hard to find. Dan J. West Bloomfield, Michigan
“He assessed the problem, knew I needed the spring replaced. He had the part right on his truck, so he fixed it right then. It took about hour tops, and he was on his way. Fair price, door fixed, I would use again.” John W. West Bloomfield, Michigan
