Q & A

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 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 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.

Jamey did an amazing job fixing our garage door! He is very knowledgeable, thoroughly explained the issues we were having with opening our door and how he would repair it, and in no time at all he completely transformed our garage door so that it works as smoothly as ever! We will definitely look to work with Jamey again in the near future.

Tito arrived 10 minutes early and ready to repair our garage door. He was thorough in explanation of what caused our door to stop working. Tito replaced our springs for the opener within 45 minutes. Once complete, he walked me through step-by-step to reprogram our opener. To top it off, he had a couple of extra remotes he was able to provide too. Highly recommend Freedom Overhead Doors. The part came with a 5 year warranty. Will absolutely use them again.

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.
