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 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.

Should I tip the garage door repairman?

It’s not expected that you tip garage door repairmen, and normally they’re not expecting a tip for their services. However, it’s always a kind gesture to tip for excellent and friendly service. 

Is it dangerous to replace a garage door spring?

Yes, it can be dangerous to undertake a garage door spring repair yourself. Fixing it requires having a working knowledge of how a garage door works and understanding how the parts work. A door can fall on you, and loaded springs can suddenly release and hit you. For this reason, it’s recommended you call a pro to replace or fix your garage door spring.

How often do garage door springs break?

Garage door springs break every three to seven years, depending on its quality and condition. For example, rust and cold weather can shorten the lifespan of a torsion spring.

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.

Mel showed up on time and was very responsive over Thumbtack. Overall price for a garage door repair went $60 (or about 33%) higher than what he quoted as the “worst case scenario,” but ultimately I appreciated that he was able to come quickly and repair the door in one trip. Would recommend.

Spencer at Freedom Overhead Doors did an amazing job. Friday night I was in a panic, but his quick response, constant communication and fair price had me resting easy because I knew Monday my door would be fixed. He has a very professional demeanor, was on time, and went right to work. In a short amount of time, my garage door was operational again and working better than it was before the repair was needed. I would recommend Freedom Overhead Doors to anyone needing repairs or installation in the 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.
