I used to be a small amar garage door Dealer until they closed my local distribution center. I did not want to drive 5 hours to the other 2 options.I have customers in my area who purchased garage doors with lifetime Spring warranties. But since there was no distributor ship in the area. And I am not a dealer anymore. The company will not honor the Spring warranty.
