Sam was AWESOME! ***** Literally same day service, from initial contact through completion -- Actually took only a few hours total. Sam has super fast response times whether via Thumbtack, text, or phone calls. He met me within three hours of contacting him, completed the service check on my garage door opener, and immediately identified the problem. Sam provided multiple options that I could take in order to repair my garage door opener. Once I chose an option, Sam drove off-site to obtain the necessary repair parts. My garage door opener was 100% operational within a couple of hours of choosing a repair option. I Highly Recommend Sam...

We purchased a new home two years ago and my husband and I decided to install new laminate flooring, door trims and baseboards ourselves. We only managed to finish half of the house and got too busy with our work to complete everything upstairs. The house always seemed unfinished with tons of material cluttering our garage. We decided to post an ad on thumbtack and Oscar responded -- and we are soooooo pleased that he did. Oscar and his crew are true professionals. (You can check out his facebook page for ideas and pictures of his work - https://www.facebook.com/OscarsHardwoodFlooring ). We have nothing but praises for Oscar - the quality of his work, his attention to detail, the fact that they cleaned up everyday before leaving. Now we have absolutely beautiful floors and mouldings and the house is finally "finished"! Even though it wasn't included in his original quote, he also installed the baseboard and quarter-rounds in some of our half-finished closets and pantry. He is a wonderful contractor - one who won't "nickel and dime" you for extra small stuff. My only regret/complaint: 1) not finding/hiring Oscar sooner and 2) not being able to give him more than 5 stars for this review.

Not thinking it through, I authorized the repair. I called back 20 seconds later to stop the service. Three more calls within 12 minutes went unanswered. When the call was returned, I was told the gear replacement was completed within 10 minutes, costing me $188 plus $99 for "service". All for a garage door opener that I could have replaced for $150.

So Luke is really amazing. His 1 noticeable flaw may be that he's too humble. He's professional, attentive, thorough, clean, quick, polite, encouraging, creative, gets the job done quickly and right the first time... like you'd believe someone who owns a business would conduct their business. He's also strong: he carried my oven down to my garage before I knew it was happening: my neighbor told me "Wow." (that's how fast he works!) He's intelligent and funny without being so chatty you wonder when he's going to get to work since you're paying him hourly... he's worth every dollar and more, truly even more: by hiring Luke Carr YOU can help improve this world of ours. How? Because Luke doesn't just help homeowners, he's helping others on a much broader scope! Call him for whatever you need. He can do anything from floors to ceilings and when you talk to him, ask him about Africa. There is more I'd like to do here in my home. I know when it's time to call a professional I'll be calling on Luke Carr. He's That Good. Outstanding is an understatement.

Matt and the Door Dorks were amazing to work with! Not only was he on time, he was early both visits! Our door was ordered, installed and ready to go within a week, and was considerably ($200) cheaper than other quotes. Fingers crossed we won’t need them again but if we ever need another door replaced we will be calling them first!

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.

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.

How much does it cost to get a new garage door?

A new garage door can add serious curb appeal, not to mention myriad home safety benefits. The cost of a new garage door will vary based on the type of garage door you want and the materials it will be made of. You can purchase a new garage door and have the pros install it for you, but proceed with caution as many installers won’t guarantee their labor if you didn’t purchase the garage door through their company. A new door (without installation) may cost anywhere from $200 to $4,000 or more, depending on size, brand and materials. Here are some examples of average new garage door costs, including installation:  

  • Raised-panel, insulated,16x7 garage door: $1,100
    • Without insulation: about $900
  • Raised-panel, insulated, 8x7: $700
    • Without insulation: $550
  • Carriage-house 16x7 garage door with stamped-steel design: $1,500
  • Carriage-house 8x7 garage door with stamped-steel design: $1,000
    • A carriage-house garage door is a barn-style door with handles and hinges; it looks like it pulls out in the style of a barn door but is actually a roll-up.
  • Carriage-house 16x7 garage door with steel and faux-wood overlay: $3,500
  • Carriage-house 8x7 garage door with steel and faux-wood overlay: $2,000–$2,200
  • Solid-wood cedar or mahogany 16x7 garage door with window in top panels: $5,000
  • Solid-wood cedar or mahogany 8x7 garage door with window in top panels: $3,500

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.

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.
