Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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 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 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.

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.

I needed two new garage doors and openers. Will explained the job thoroughly and was onsite during install to make sure job was done correctly. I would recommend working with Will on any garage door needs. Transaction was seamless from start to finish. Excellent customer service and workmanship. Will is by far the best pro I have hired on Thumbtack for numerous jobs I've needed completed.

This was not a standard installation as our garage is over 50 years old. I had several estimates and everyone had different ideas of what to do about the extremely low overhead and nonstandard opening. I felt more comfortable with Gavin's explanation about how to handle the installation. He had to do some custom framing in the opening and the overhead for the spring installation. On the day of the install, Gavin had all of the materials he needed to complete the job. He cleaned up everything, including hauling off the old water logged door. I couldn't be happier with the service and the door. It works so smoothly and I'm sure it will last for many years. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Gavin and Absolute doors to my friends.

Barnes knew his craft, and explained the problem as he worked to resolve the issue. He also recommended a replacement of a certain part to permanently prevent future problems when I could afford the replacement. The door was repaired and worked properly before he left. He was honest, professional, and affordable. I would highly recommend him to any homeowner for his high quality of work at an affordable price. I will definately have him back to install the most current door opener system for my older wooden garage door that would make the door operate more smoothly. I believe the work he did will provide me good service for a very long time.

I'm a big "youtube DIYer." Every once in awhile I run across a problem where enough people say, "Its time to call a specialist," that I actually call one. Thumbtack hasn't let me down yet. I submitted a job for a garage door opener with a failed sensor and lights. I was immediately connected with John from Genesis Overhead Doors. We exchanged a couple of chats where he speculated on what he thought the problem was, along with his recommendations for both repair and replacement. My unit was about 28 years old so.....the replacement was a desirable upgrade considering all of the integrated automation features available. What impressed me most, was his willingness to come out early on a holiday weekend to accommodate my schedule. He scheduled the earliest possible appointment and was done in less than an hour. John and Daniel set up my new exterior keypad with pin, the remote opener and walked me through setting up mobile access on my phone. In addition to the original scope, John troubleshot some other issues with the door itself. He recommended a product that would extend the life of my door parts for a little while longer. After installation, he did a quick demo and stayed until he was sure I understood and tested how everything worked. His quick tutorial also helped me quickly pair my integrated car garage opener soon after they left. I was very impressed with John's knowledge and believe I received a great value for the service rendered. I know I'll be using them again.

Everything about AAA was top notch. One of the best experiences I've had with ANY contractor/vendor for ANY project. Mark was punctual, responsive, extremely knowledgeable, fast, affordable, professional, and courteous. He was a straight-shooter and has to be one of the most experienced garage techs in Atlanta. I was genuinely impressed with his in-depth knowledge of all things garage door systems and he was a joy to work with. He replaced 2 old clunky garage door opener systems and installed 2 new complete systems (safety sensors, remotes, wall panels, keypads, the opener/motor, and the belt systems). Over the phone he told me the price and time it would take from start to finish (2 hours) and sure enough 2 hours after arriving (on time) he was finished. Everything was completed and all of the old equipment was cleaned up and out of sight (I didn't want any of the old junk parts). The bill at the end had no extra charges and was exactly what he told me up-front over the phone. Before calling Mark with AAA, our recent home inspection revealed that the old sensors on one of the doors were mounted in a dangerous manner that wouldn't protect small children (which we have) and we have been worried as our kids frequently play in and around the garage. I tried to fix it myself before calling Mark from AAA and I couldn't because there wasn't enough space to move the sensors to where they needed to be. Whoever installed the old system didn't care or lacked the creativity to properly configure the safety sensors but Mark from AAA cares about doing it right and found a solution without even being prompted by me. When Mark from AAA was wrapping up and walking me through everything, he told me he noticed that safety issue and showed me the creative way he installed the sensor on that one oddly spaced side. He went the extra mile because he truly cared and is a pro and now I have peace of mind knowing the kids are safe and everything is done right. He also walked me through how to maintain the system (which parts to lubricate and how often, etc.). As I understand it he's been doing this professionally his whole life and just branched out on his own a couple of years ago and with his talent and professionalism I can understand why! Definitely will hire again when we replace the actual garage doors and I look forward to working with him!! Thanks AAA!!
