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!

Very professional. Elias was prompt and texted ahead with his arrival time. I’m so glad I chose Thumbtack. To say I’m pleasures with his workmanship would be under stating it. Amazing job, he even framed out my doggie door to help support it. I supplied the 2x4 and he cut it to fit. HIRE THIS GUY, you won’t be disappointed. Thank you Elias.

I don't really like writing reviews, but Al asked for it, so writing it. Yeah, I liked their services, but honestly they arrived in one hours and that tm not as they boast. Otherwise, great service. Polite guys, accurate fixes, low cost. Basically whatever you can ask for. I personally feel that getting such services has become very difficult these days. But thanks to companies like Garage Doors and Gates 4 Less, we can expect professionalism.

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.

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!

Great job. JTec was on time, friendly, helpful, honest and very conservative on repairs and parts. He suggested a garage door tune up first and would only move to parts replacement if more than a tune up was necessary. All that was needed was a tune up!

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.

Tom and his team changed our old 1940s garage door to an entirely new system with the mechanism and lifter. Everything went smoothly and efficiently: from the initial appointment to the quotation, then the final work. He was professional, punctual, and honored everything he said, including a good price. To top it off, the installation was clean and the area was tidied up upon completion. I HIGHLY recommend him and his company for any garage door project.

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.

He arrived on time and quickly got to work. He was very professional and was able to provide everything that needed to be done. After he fixed the door, he continued to provide education to maintain the equipment and offered additional services (replacement of a small garage glass window. As for the quality, I was impressed on taking the time to get the whole job completed and to make sure nothing was missed. He tried a few times to make the garage motor to run as quiet as possible w/o rattles and noise.

James was great! I described what happened with our garage door on the phone and he gave me an estimate. He came out at the agreed appointment time and repaired the door quickly. He also took the time to inspect the whole system and make sure everything was working properly. He is very knowledgeable, polite and efficient. I was concerned the repair was going to be costly, but it was very reasonable! Thank you, James!

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 much does it cost to get a garage door fixed?

The national average for garage door repair cost is between $80 and $110. Some of the factors that affect your garage door repair cost are the type of springs (most often torsion or extension), the size and weight of the door, and the door material. Many garage door pros will charge a service fee to visit your house and determine the problem. Often, the service fee includes a set amount of labor. One example of this is an $80 service fee that includes the first hour of work plus testing and inspecting your garage door and garage door opener, while another pro may charge $150 for the same standard service call.   

Broken or jammed springs are a common problem. In one example, the starting price for spring repair was $99, while another pro’s cost started at $185. The $185 starting price included $40 for transportation costs, $60 for parts, and $85 per hour of labor. Professionals may charge extra for late-night garage door repair emergencies.

How much is it to replace a garage door panel?

Replacing a garage door panel can add significantly to the cost of a garage door repair. Panels run horizontally on sectional roll-up garage doors. They may be made of wood, vinyl, aluminum, fiberglass or steel. Garage door panels can become damaged from hail and other extreme weather, dents and dings, car accidents, and age. When deciding if you want to replace a garage door panel, it’s helpful to compare the potential repair cost to the cost of a new garage door. Panel replacement requires a pro with the proper tools as well as the new parts. With parts and labor you could be paying more than $500 for one new panel. In comparison, a new garage door may cost $800-$1,200 (on average) with installation. If there is a possibility your garage door was structurally compromised when the panel was damaged, have the pro assess whether it’s better to completely remove and replace the door, rails and framework to ensure your home’s safety. It may also be better to completely replace your door if it is severely rusted or dented; if the paint is peeling and fading; if the door model is outdated or you can’t find replacement panels; or if the panels or rails are structurally compromised.

How much should it cost to replace a garage door cable?

If your garage door is not opening or has become jammed, you may need to replace the garage door cables. Unless you have the proper tools and know-how, this is a job best left to a professional due to the weight of the garage door and the extreme tension of the springs. The cost of repair will vary depending on your location, the length of the cables you need, and the time it takes the pro to do the replacement.

From a big-box store, basic garage door cables can run between $8 and $20, depending on the product. Your pro may charge you a different cost if they provide the cables. Your cables may not need to be replaced if they have simply come off the track, but broken cables will need to be completely removed and replaced. In either instance, the pros will need to secure or take down the door; unwind the springs; reset or replace the rollers, cables, and drums; and then wind the springs once more. For example, a pro could reset cables that have come off the track for $129.99. The average national cost for a garage door repair specialist is $80 - $110 per hour and the typical cost to replace a broken garage door cable is anywhere from $130 to $200.
