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 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.

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.

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 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.

Rio's garage door was very prompt and responsive to my query and handled the request in a very professional way- they came out the next day to fix it. The cost of the repair (parts and labor) was much more reasonable compared to the other quotes I got. Overall, I am very happy with their service and would reach out to them for future Garage door repair needs.

What I thought was going to be a quick and easy repair to the motion sensor ended up being a much bigger job. Jesse replaced our very old system and installed a new garage door very quickly and for a great price. We are very happy with the work and I will definitely recommend Performance Garage Door Service to anyone needing work done to their garage doors! Thanks so much, Jesse!

10 out of 10! Thomas came out the first day I requested a quote, and gave us a fair deal. We had the install done today, and it looks great. Even before we selected him as our contractor, he was very helpful in answering questions and helping us navigate our way through the entire process. The garage doors are extremely high quality. You can tell Thomas pays attention to detail and has pride in his work. We have the insulated steel back garage doors and it had absolutely changed the garage. So thankful we went with Wall To Wall to fix our garage. It started with my daughter wrecking into the garage door and it ended with fabulous garage doors. I would highly recommend to anyone looking to have their garages repaired and transformed.

He did a fantastic job repairing my garage door brace/connection, and for a very reasonable cost. Took the time to check the rest of the system to make sure everything was in good working order. Would definitely use again, and recommend to others.

These gentlemen were so considerate of our time restraints. Other estimates we received were too costly for our budget. We thought we would not be able to afford to have the garage door repaired but took the chance to call anyway. We are grateful for the prompt response and honesty to repair only what needed to be repaired. Thanks so very much for your help gentlemen! God bless you.

Repaired the springs and both cables within about 30 minutes. Arrived at my house within 2 hours of posting to Thumbtack - which was very nice considering I was trapped inside my house without a working garage door (manual override wouldn't work without a spring).

My experience with Reliant Overhead was good. It was either Justin or Russ Brown who asked me to give him a call when he saw my request online about my garage door in need of repair. His quick responsiveness was quite impressive. He educated me on the benefits of having two springs versus one spring among other things about a garage door. The reason I decided to go with Reliant over other companies that were bidding for the job, was not only the price, but what was all included with the price. They did a tune-up on my garage. Besides fixing my broken springs. The only reason I did not give 5 stars was because the repairman came an hour and 30 minutes late. He did call after my 6:00 appointment to tell me he was running late and he did a good job of fixing my garage door in under 30 minutes. I would recommend Reliant Overhead versus Overhead Doors. Overhead Doors replaced my original spring 5 years ago. And did not educate me about springs and did not let me know how long springs should last. Reliant Overhead is company that one can rely on and trust to not only get the job done, but educate the customer as well

I hired Reliant Overhead Garage for one of my rental properties because the tenant mentioned the garage door had stopped working. They were able to call my tenant to schedule an appointment the same day. Once they arrived at the property, they were able to determine that the only issue with the garage was due to the red cord getting disconnected. They hooked the cord back to the garage and tested it several times to make certain the issue was fixed. They were honest about what the issue was, when many companies can "find" something else that's wrong just to charge you for something that does not need fixing. Considering I deal with vendors all the time on my rental homes, it's great to come across a company that you know has integrity. I will be using them on all future repairs/purchases.

Showed up on time, in fact 15 minutes early. Gave me a very, very fair estimate. Was polite and professional. Exactly everything you would hope for when you hire a contractor of any kind. They did such great work in a very short amount of time for a very small fee that I even paid them extra because I felt it fair to do so. To outline the work that I had done - the garage door at a house I'm trying to sell wouldn't open using either the opener (which we thought was inoperable) or by opening it manually either. Come to find out the cable on one side had popped off, which they repaired. Didn't even try to upsell me on new parts. Said the cable that we had was fine. Then once he got the garage door cable back on he could test the garage door opener. Come to find out the opener wouldn't work because the sensor cable had accidentally been pulled from the sensor. He reattached it and voila the opener worked again too. Very impressed and will be hiring these guys for my own personal home in the next couple of months.

Outstanding service! We made contact through Thumbtack on Monday and Jose responded right away saying he could come to our house on Tuesday. He came on Tuesday and looked at all 3 of our garage doors. We had contacted him to fix only one of them, but we ended up having him replace one opener and do various repairs on the other 2. His fee was VERY reasonable considering the labor involved and the cost of the new opener, and he worked FAST! We will definitely contact him again when we are ready to replace the other openers. We highly recommend him. GREAT service!
