Harry's communication was excellent, responded within two hours to each contact. We hired Harry to fix a leak in our double-bowl kitchen sink. He quickly isolated the problem, and repaired it. He was knowledgeable, efficient, neat and polite. Very "husband-for-hire", I felt comfortable having him in our home. My husband asked him to fix a problem with one of our garage door openers. Once again, he isolated the problem, solved it and fixed it. His price was lower than he quoted (first visit and quote were no charge) and very, very reasonable. Overall, outstanding experience with Harry, we will be calling again and again.Thank you, Harry!

Sonny came in and went over everything in detail. He suggested things that I never thought of! Jonathan painted my living room, dinning room, kitchen, bedroom, doors, trimming and hallways in record time! The price was even better! I can't believe how a fresh new coat of paint can change my entire house. To say that I'm impressed with their work is an understatement! I'd definitely recommend them. I interviewed 6 other painting companies and I'm so happy I chose them!

Thorough, high quality, attention to detail, friendly, timely and excellently priced...these are just some of the qualities of Thiago Pelisson and his team! I was searching for a contractor to power wash and paint/stain house, decks and porch for my mother. She is not accustomed to hiring and as a widow and senior citizen, she was anxious about the finding/hiring process. Her house has cedar shingles, many damaged due to weather & woodpeckers! I contacted Thiago and he promptly got back to me to set up time to meet my mom & see the house to provide an estimate. My mom was SO impressed! Thiago was friendly and took time to take thorough look at the home. He listened to my mom, answered questions and gave her a great sense of comfort and confidence. He provided a detailed quote that including carpenter work, power washing, and materials at excellent price. His team arrived and they were all friendly, efficient, hard working and quality work! The prep work they did on the house to ensure paint didn't get on windows, doors, even the doorbell went WAY beyond expectations! Attention to detail was incredible - every nook was covered. Thiago came to the home twice during the project (approximately 4 days for all phases) to ensure quality. He even had carpenter return to fix area on chimney that she didn't even know had rotted - and he didn't jack up the price to have it done. The house looks great and it was a relief to trust Thiago and his crew. I've recommended him to friends, as has my mom and will hire him again without hesitation!

These guys are great. Would highly recommend. We got home after a trip, and our daughter locked a bedroom door (we lost the key) We found this out at 8:45PM. I called Sure Lock & Key, a gentleman was in Westport in 20 mins, and had the door unlocked in less than a minute. Again, great experience with Sure Lock & Key.

Rome and his crew did a great job patching holes and painting the entire interior of my house. They added trim, changed out knobs and door hardware. They also sanded and stained our hardwood floors. Our house looks brand new. The turnaround time from contact to complete was fast and efficient. Very responsive and reasonable to changes/additions on the fly. Great value too.

I called Bob because my garage was a disaster area that the entire family was too scared to even step into. Bob was brave. He dove into a disaster zone and courageously chipped away at it for hours -- determined and uncomplaining -- and this was a hard project. He sorted everything, cleaned, organized and found creative solutions. On top of that he is a sweet, lovely, considerate guy who is a joy to have around. I can't recommend him more highly, and will be calling him soon to help with other projects. Yay Bob for changing our lives in a day. Our garage is no longer the 7th circle of Hell, it is the best it could possibly be, thanks to your courage and determination!

I️ hired Roger for a pretty big job... I️ just bought a 1400 square foot condo with high ceilings and a ton of molding. It was in rough shape and everything needed to be painted... molding, walls, ceiling, doors, etc. It took several days to complete. Roger and his team were very professional and courteous. They showed up when they said they were going to and took a lot of care when working. They did a great job and Roger did not consider the job complete until he was sure I️ was happy with the finished product. Price was very reasonable for the scope of the project. I️ would definitely hire Silva Painting again.

I do not even know where to start. If Bruce lived in a different time he would have been a Renaissance man. He possesses a masterful blend of artistry and intellect. The first project he did for us was to redo a simple laundry room. This entailed making templates and installing granite for a counter with a sink and a making a folding table/counter. He had to repair some sheet rock and repaint the room. The results were impressive. The second job he did was design and build a workbench for my art studio. His architectural renderings were impressive. He measured the length of my arms to insure I was able to reach the peg board behind the work bench. He thought to install a length of electrical outlets beneath the lip of the bench. The side drawers are easily opened and closed and the paper trays are large enough to hold my watercolor paper. He is extremely meticulous and his work shows this. He installed glass doors in the basement studio to allow more light to enter the area. When this wasn't sufficient, he cut through the concrete and installed a window (with molding and a sill). His masterpiece was the deck he built for us. With Bruce's skill and our artistic input he produced a showpiece deck. The three tiered deck allows for minimal visual obstruction of the woods below. He installed tiny lights on the stairs to make them safer in the evening. He thought of these. He made a portion of the deck curved to provide harmony with the landscaping. Again, his renderings were precise and impressive. He laid everything out carefully and was always thinking ahead. Our deck is magnificent. He handled all the paperwork for the permits as well. On a smaller scale Bruce hung paintings, our TV, glass doors leading to a bonus room, fixed all our leaky faucets and provided names when we needed a generator and a water softening system installed. Bruce is one of a kind in that he is masterful in so many areas and knows when to get a consult. He is prompt and ready to work hard. He put in very long hours, cleaned up and just did amazing work. I still look forward to having him finish an upstairs loft, a bathroom in our studio and build a space for a china hutch. I feel so fortunate that we found Bruce and would give him the highest of recommendations. He really is a Master of many things! He is also very easy to talk to and to work with.

Amazonia’s did a great job installing an epoxy floor in my garage and painting the walls and ceiling. Their experience in the process helped me to solve issues with floor cracks, so now I have a beautiful, durable garage floor. The garage is almost like an extra room now. They were responsive and showed up as scheduled. (The Photo is from an iPhone, so there is shadowing, due to the lighting)

Leonard and his team painted the interior of my townhome including trim and doors. They did a great job and were fast, professional, and competitively priced. They showed up on a Friday and in about 3 days had completed the whole job for a 2200sqft home. The place looks beautiful. I would highly recommend them.

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.
