We hired Marty for installing backsplash tiles in our kitchen. I cant say enough good things about Marty, he is a wonderful worker. He did such a great job with the backsplash. He is very neat and meticulous with his work. He would not stop until he completes the work he planned for that day. We have been so happy, that we have hired him to do more work like replacing the bathroom vanity, fireplace surround install, ceiling fans, Garage door install. He can do everything you ask him to do. He charges very reasonably for his service as well. We are so happy we found him on thumbtack.

Denis goes the extra mile. He had to work for like 7 hours, into the early evening, to install our garage door. The previous owners had put in a non-standard size garage door, requiring a lot of custom work, which he didn't even charge me for. He came back the next day to finish up. Highly recommended. Denis is now my go-to guy when anyone asks who should they engage to install or repair garage doors. He also does commercial work, not just small residential projects. Punctual, fair price, great quality, great customer service.

The prices quoted were reasonable and there never were any hidden charges. The projects were completed in a timely fashion. The quality of the work was excellent. I would strongly recommend Torino Home Repair.

We hired Anthony at the last minute to repair a nasty pet stain on our landlord's hardwood floors in order to retain our security depost. He was very understanding from the first phone call and came out within a few days to survey and provide quote. Quote was very fair and we were able to schedule the work for a few days later. The floors look great, we highly recommend!

Two other contractors were not skilled in installing a metal lintel to support the garage frame. This company came same day I called. Gave me an accurate estimate (comparable to another company that took 2 weeks to get back to me. ). This company arranged to come right after they gave an estimate, took apart damaged frame, garage door, replaced lintel, frame, and cemented and corked all around. They arrived on time, provided excellent materials, clean work and when finished left property in pristine condition!. Even cleaned away any cement! They were knowledgeable, professional and provided top quality work. I would recommend to everyone and hire them again. They don't push for unnecessary work and provide top products and top service.

Daniel was on time and kept me informed of his arrival 14 minutes out and as he was pulling into the driveway via phone call. Extremely professional and courteous. We needed our garage door fixed as it would catch on a bolt upon opening. It took Daniel a few minutes to assess the situation and then he went right to work. Happy to report that the door works perfectly. Thank you Daniel. Highly recommend.

I hired them for a garage door replacement project. Overall good experience. Price was very competitive and the work was done on time as promised. Only con was that I had to dispose of all the old components myself and sanitation refused to take them. Not a big deal, but wish it was discussed earlier. I would recommend and use them again.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 do you choose a garage door?

When garage door repair isn’t an option — perhaps the current door is beyond fixing or you want to upgrade to a quieter, more energy-efficient model — it’s time to buy a new one. But choosing a garage door is not as simple as it sounds, even when you know the right size for your home. A wide range of materials, styles and finishes are available, and each factor influences the cost. Garage doors are made of aluminum, steel, vinyl, fiberglass, masonite, wood (typically cedar or mahogany), or a composite of several materials. They may be insulated against cold or heat. Traditional and modern styles include raised panel, carriage house or crossbuck. Most styles have window or arch options, and are available in different wood finishes and neutral colors. Because garage doors account for a large part of a home’s exterior, their appearance is usually a homeowner’s top priority. An attractive garage door can increase a home’s curb appeal and resale value.

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 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.
