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.

I chose Premier garage door services after I was told by 3 companies that my garage door needed to be replaced because it could not be repaired. Mr. Henry could not find the new parts locally so he drove out of town to find them. He was not able to find replacement parts anywhere within 2 hours driving distance but he worked tirelessly to repair the door anyway. We are happy to have our door function like new and look good also. Thanks to Mr Henry we saved a great deal of money bcuz we did not have to replace our garage door. Mr Henry has a positive attitude and does his job in a professional manner. I recommended him to a friend and he repaired their garage door. They were well pleased. I recommend this company highly to all who need a garage door repaired. Bob and L.

Smitty was very very quick to respond and even came to my house the same day. Smitty checked both of my garage doors even though I only had a problem with one. He talked me through the problem I was having and what he needed to do to repair. 30 minutes later my garage door was fixed. I rarely leave reviews but Smitty did such an excellent job that I want to make sure other people know how good, knowledgeable and professional he is. I will absolutely recommend him to my network.

Smitty responds very quickly and was willing to get the job done even before I paid him. We never met but spoke on the phone and guarantees his work and parts. I will keep him on my speed dial for any other needs for my rental and friends. He gave me a professional, written quote and worked with me on payment. He repaired a broken spring on my garage door and got it working the next day. Thank you so much Smitty!

Had them come out to fix a broken spring on my garage door and given price of $350 before coming out so that’s what I agreed to pay. I had previous damage to one 2 of my struts and was offered to fix everything for $450. After the work was completed he stated that the $450 price was additional to the $350 which is definitely not how it was stated when the additional service was offered. I had no intention of fixing damage that’s been there for 8 years for an additional $450. Just be aware of this tactic in the future. The repair work seems pretty good and the garage is working fine. Just be mindful of upselling and don’t get deceived as I did.
