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.

Great service! Will call for all garage repairs. After one company tried to sale me on a new garage door, he came out and repaired door and opener within half an hour. A new door was not in my budget, but his repairs were very affordable and great quality. Highly recommend this company.

Leo was able to repair our garage door the same day he came out and looked at it. He explained what was wrong with it, gave us suggestions on what needed to be done and and didn’t try to sell us things we didn’t need. I will recommend him to my family and friends if they need a garage door repaired.

Today my garage door stopped working!!! I was able to get in contact with Fix N Go the very same day. I messaged them at 5pm and they were pulling up to my house by 6:30pm. They replaced the spring and made sure that my garage door worked properly before leaving. I would recommend this company to everyone who needs garage door repairs!

Emergency garage door repair turned into a new door, but we were given a range of options. First visit was just a couple of hours from the Thumbtack request and everything was wrapped up very quickly with a holiday approaching. Great job!

I was very pleased with the job done. I needed my garage door repaired after the cables came off the drums. He was able to fix the cables and put new rollers and new spring, and level the door. Now it's so silent when it opens and closes. The job was professionally done and I recommend the services.

Keil came out to our home on short notice, at no cost to us, in 30 degree weather, and very late on a Sunday night. Although not able to immediately repair my poor quality garage parts, he was able to provide budget friendly replacement parts of a higher quality and returned soon with the needed material and completed the repair. He also programmed our extra garage door openers at no extra charge. Again, in FREEZING weather! Now if Keil could provide this training to the rest of the service industry, we would all have a better world to live in. Seriously though, thank you for taking care of our issues during off-hours when you could have been with your family instead. This didn’t go unnoticed and we appreciate it. You’ve earned two new customers for all of our garage door needs. Thank You Marlon and Melissa

I received a call back within minutes of posting my request. Jonas (tech) came out in roughly 30mins or so after finishing another job. He was able to get my garage door issue repaired in about 10 minutes. He was very nice, knowledgeable and professional. I'll definitely use his company in the near future.

They were responsive and came out the day after I requested the thumbtack job. The technician told me from the picture that I uploaded what was wrong and gave me a quote which ended up being the price, so that was nice. Work was done fast and efficiently (around 30 min total) and they accept credit card! I would recommend them to anyone who needs garage door repair.

I had a perfect experience GDKS! Not only was he punctual and very friendly, he was very affordable. He didn't try to convince me to buy any extras...he understood I just wanted to repair my issue as cheaply and effectively as reasonably possible. He even oiled and checked the rest of my garage door system at no additional cost. Overall, he was just a skilled, really nice guy.
