The warranty is literally one sentence "Lifetime warranty on spring(s), hardware, door sections (10 year warranty on on windows)."
To me, that implies labor. When your car is warrantied and something fails, the manufacturer pays the labor.
The problem with the door in this case is was that the screws holding the opener in place had come loose and fallen out. Literally all they did was screw it in (which is apparently an hour of work). I could have easily done that myself. If it was a spring, sure, no question. That's why we got it replaced in the first place. It was an ancient door and hardware.
