The kit is exactly as described with outstanding support before during and after the purchase. My kit had shipping problems with UPS. Ian kept me informed as to their response to the problem and ultimately sent a second kit. In my honest opinion, this company is absolutely first rate.

With lots of help from Ian at Five Star Doors I was able to determine exactly where to put the new strut and my garage door now opens properly. I would never have guessed the location they had me put the strut!

No joke this is the best service I have ever received from an online store. Ian reached out after my order and held my hand during this entire process with great advice and attitude. I could not be happier with the service. Five-star doors is my go-to place for any garage door needs.

My kit came damage. Ian got right on it and got a replacement. I feel he went above and beyond to remedy this situation. Service like this is not seen too often. Thank you Ian for your help!

The product was exactly as I expected, of high quality, and did the job well. The service by far exceeded what I was expecting. I was instructed exactly where to install the strut and it perfectly fixed my issue. I would not have ever thought of putting it were they instructed me to install it, but they were correct and it works perfectly. Five Star Doors is top notch and I highly recommend them!!

I have had one of the best online experiences working with Ian from Five Star Doors. He has been very helpful and informative. I installed the new strut where Ian recommended. Repaired the vertical style and added the center
reinforcement bracket. Door is now working flawlessly, actually seems
quieter than before. It’s not binding as it moves up and down. My parts were damaged when they arrived, contacted Ian and he immediately followed up to remedy the situation. Thank you!

The 16 foot strut worked perfectly and it fixed my sagging garage door! Kit delivered quickly and well packaged. Sure hope I never need another strut in the future but if I do, I know where to get a good one at a fair price. Thank you!

I ordered a 16 FT strut kit to replace an old one, fast shipping, got it in a few days. The strut comes in 3 pieces, and when assembled, the strut is stronger than the old one.
It took me a couple of hours with limited tools to put it together and install it on the door. Now the garage door is operating better than before.
One more thing, I like the way Five Star Doors charges for orders, including free shipping.
Thanks, Ian excellent service.

The best customer service of any company I’ve dealt with in a long time … maybe ever. The first shipment was lost and presumed damaged by UPS in transit, so Ian quickly sent out a replacement. Sadly, the “professionally installed” top strut on my beautiful 16′ door was way too short and poorly installed, so the door started sagging and separating from the strut. Ian provided detailed instructions on the complicated replacement, and now my door is well supported. Thank you, Ian! I highly recommend Five Star Doors.

The struts were exactly what my door needed. It works beautifully now. I was surprised how quick and easy it was to assemble and install them on my 16″ door. I couldn”t be happier with them.
