Ruben is excellent to work with. He called me before he came out to let me know what time he would be arriving. He explained everything that they needed to do to changed out the old garage door with the new door. It was exciting watching them take the old door off. I always wondered how they did that. When he told me the price that was the solid price. No up sale. I really enjoyed my experience with Ruben and Corey I would highly recommend to anyone that needs repairs and new garage door.

After describing my needed garage door repair on Thumbtack, I was contacted the same day by Dan Denker of Denker's Garage Doors. He provided his cell number for direct access. I called and described the issue as well as my desired solution, and he was able to give me an immediate quote and advise me of additional considerations withe regard to the repair. After some comparison shopping and consideration, I decided to hire Dan. He came quickly to my location, inspected my current door and opener, and measured for the new door panels. The next morning, he arrived with the new door panels and spent an hour and a half removing the old panels, replacing the torsion spring, and installing the new panels. Once the new panels were in place, he also noticed that my garage door opener needed to have the carriage replaced due to excess wear and replaced the part on the spot for the cost of the part. He then cleaned up any extraneous marks on the new panels before leaving. Overall, I received excellent service and pricing and would recommend Denker's Garage Doors to anyone in need of service, repair, or installation of a garage door.

Our experience with Hector was amazing. He installed cabinets, lighting, and electrical work in our garage (basically remodeled the garage). He is extremely hard-working and treated the job as if he was doing it for his own house: no shortcuts. His prices are very reasonable and he is a man of his word! You cannot go wrong with Hector! Excellent work and we look forward to working with him on ALL upcoming projects. We have found a handyman for life!

In this case, I was an idiot and made a big mistake with my garage door mechanism. Octavio diagnosed this issue through Thumbtack chat and helped me realize what the problem was (and a simple DIY fix) in less than 15 minutes. I will most definitely be hiring him when my garage door needs more work.

Contacted George with a list of projects I had in mind, but needed a price to see how much I could get done and what the costs would be. George came over to give me a quote and a breakdown of costs of each project and payment schedule, which I appreciated. We went ahead with the work. One of the bigger projects we had George and his team do was to knock down our existing patio and concrete and put up a new one. Old patio was 15' x 20' we did a new 15' x 40' patio. Very happy with the quality of work and the patio itself. Other projects include removing bulkhead and putting up new drywall, installing can lights, new roof, and putting up new doors. I was most impressed by two things - 1) the open communication between us, and 2) the professionalism and politeness from George and his workers. Even little hiccups were properly communicated and worked out. I will definitely be working with them again.

I highly recommend Steve Fry for your construction needs! We had a barn door custom made just sitting at our home and in need of installation. Steve responded timely to my Thumbtack request and we made arrangements to meet within a few days. He showed up on time and was prepared to do the work. The door kit was a bit raw, but he knew exactly what to do. He was friendly, and is truly and expert in door hanging. The final product took only a few hours and it looks beautiful. Couldn't be happier. Please call Steve for your construction projects - you won't be disappointed!

My main Rollup Garage Door spring broke. I checked Thumbtack for local Garage Door Repairs and emailed 24/7 at about 3:00pm on Friday December 1st. Received a response within minutes of submitting. I called 24/7 and asked when the work could be done. The lady on the other end stated before 5:00pm. I thought, NOW THAT IS FAST! Let's do it. Ben called at about 3:30pm and said he was about 30 minutes out and would be here by 4:00pm. Sure enough 4:00pm almost on the dot. I showed Ben to door, he assessed the work, provided a quote and then began the work. DONE - in less than 30 minutes - old springs off, new springs on, Door Calibrated, Cleaned up and Bill presented. NOW THAT WAS FAST. I had texted my wife the problem when she was out at about 3:10pm. The repair took place before she even knew it had occurred. Thanks Ben and 24/7 for the outstanding and quick repair of our Garage Door.

Amazing! My garage door wouldn’t open or close because of the sensor. I went on Thumbtack and searched for garage door companies. Moises from Aladdin Doors messaged me instantly. I called him within a minute. Approximately 30 minutes later he came out to my house for a free inspection. About 15 minutes later, my garage door sensor along with other items relating to my garage door were completely repaired. Moises was professional, super responsive and most importantly fair. He did not try to sell us any unnecessary equipment or services. I would recommend Aladdin Doors to everyone.

Your technician, Chris May, came by and did the job. He was professional courteous friendly and knowledgeable. We appreciate the service, it was well done at a reasonable cost. He even helped me to program the garage door opener into our new car that we just purchased the other day. I will certainly be recommending your company to anyone who needs garage door services. Thank you for everything.

Honest, Friendly, Professional services from Jessy the owner. He did an awesome job installing my Genie motor that I bought from Home Depot. He came back to help me fix the a problem when the garage door didn't close correctly. If you plan on installing a garage door motor, make sure you buy his better quality Lift Master motor from him.

Tom fixed the torsion spring on my garage door today. I contacted him on Sunday afternoon and he responded promptly, scheduled an appointment for the next day service. Tom arrived on time and got the job done in less than an hour with the same price he had quoted me. He was polite, professional and responsive. I will use his service again definitely.

From the moment I connected with Chad, I felt a sense of comfort and support in helping fix my garage door. He walked me through the entire process and provided me with a wide range of options. While other companies would price gouge me, Chad showed true integrity and was transparent with his costs and all that was involved. From beginning to end I felt 100% confident that I was getting the most value and best service. His professionalism was top notch. The work quality was second to none. He accomplished, what other garage door repair companies quoted me for, in half the time and price. If anybody, including myself, needs future garage door help I know I can depend on Chad's knowledge and expertise.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How do you fix a broken garage door?

Garage door problems don’t have to mean the end of the world. Garage door repair is typically a one-day process and can be done for only a few hundred dollars. Common garage door repair requests include fixing slow or erratic garage doors, addressing strange sounds coming from the garage door or motor, fixing cosmetic damage such as dents or scrapes, repairing broken doors that are stuck open or closed, and troubleshooting inoperable doors.

The two main garage door operating mechanisms are sectional roll-ups or tilt-ups. Garage door repair services can fix single-car, double-car or RV-height doors. Your garage door may be made of wood, steel, aluminum, masonite, vinyl, fiberglass or another material. The type of garage door repair you need really depends on the type of garage door you have and the issue at hand. Garage door repair pros often charge a flat service call fee to diagnose the problem and provide an estimate. For customers who choose to have the repair done, the service call fee may be applied to the first hour of labor (including time to make the diagnosis). If your garage door is under warranty, the repair may be free of charge.

Who repairs garage doors?

Garage door repair is a specialized job, which is typically handled by a garage door repair service. Professional garage door repair technicians can test or repair a garage door system and fix cosmetic blemishes on doors. Common requests include help with jammed or inoperable doors, slow or erratic doors, unusual sounds, dents or scrapes on the door, and general system testing. Garage door repair professionals can work on single-car, double-car and RV-size garage doors.

How do you choose a garage door?

When garage door repair isn’t an option — perhaps the current door is beyond fixing or you want to upgrade to a quieter, more energy-efficient model — it’s time to buy a new one. But choosing a garage door is not as simple as it sounds, even when you know the right size for your home. A wide range of materials, styles and finishes are available, and each factor influences the cost. Garage doors are made of aluminum, steel, vinyl, fiberglass, masonite, wood (typically cedar or mahogany), or a composite of several materials. They may be insulated against cold or heat. Traditional and modern styles include raised panel, carriage house or crossbuck. Most styles have window or arch options, and are available in different wood finishes and neutral colors. Because garage doors account for a large part of a home’s exterior, their appearance is usually a homeowner’s top priority. An attractive garage door can increase a home’s curb appeal and resale value.

How much does garage door repair cost?

When a garage door goes off the track, the spring breaks, the door is dented or the garage door opener is on the fritz, a professional garage door repair specialist can help. The cost to have a garage door fixed varies, but the national average cost of garage door repair is $70-$110. The extent of the damage and the size and material of the door will affect the final cost. A garage door repair company generally charges a national average of $80 for a service call, which includes the first hour of labor and service, such as testing and inspecting the garage door and opener. Apart from labor, the garage door repair costs hinge on buying replacements parts. For example, a new spring costs an average of $60. Expect to pay several hundred dollars, though, if the door is beyond repair; a new garage door ranges in price from $200 to $4,000, and most homeowners spend an average of $800-$1,200.

How much does it cost to install a new garage door opener?

Your new garage door opener cost will vary based on the model you purchase and how long installation takes. Typically, installation pros charge by the hour, although if the pro is also selling the garage door opener they may have a flat fee for the product with installation. The national average for new garage door opener costs (with installation) is between $390 and $650, although the national average cost for the opener purchased alone may be in the $150-$300 range. The three most common types of openers are chain-drive, screw-drive and belt-drive. The chain-drive costs the least but makes the most noise. The belt-drive is typically the quietest and the most expensive. You can expect to pay about the same amount for installation for any of the three styles. The lifespan of a garage door opener is approximately 10 years, depending on quality. A pro may provide opener repairs for the cost of their service call fee or they may charge a flat fee, such as $100 for opener repair. Here are some examples of new garage door opener average costs, including installation:

  • Contractor-grade garage door opener with installation: $300.
  • Chain-drive opener with installation and one remote: $350.
  • Belt-drive opener with installation and two remotes: $400
  • Top-of-the-line opener with ¾-horsepower battery backup, belt drive and nearly soundless operation: $475
    • The majority of higher-end garage door openers are “smart” products and will connect via app to your smartphone for remote access.
