Garage Door Styles
The style of the garage doors you have might make it hard to get repairs done. In general, single tile-up doors and single roll-up doors are the most affordable by far. On the other hand, it is more expensive to maintain custom solid wood doors as well as custom roll-up doors.
Materials for Garage Door Repair and Replacement
If you need to repair a customized garage door, you will have to get parts straight from the manufacturer.
This is another factor that increases the cost of a garage door replacement. Let’s say the replacement garage door does not have the same color as your home’s exterior. You will need to apply a new coat of paint for the garage door to match the rest of your house.
What Is the Cost of a Garage Door Pulley Repair?
Garage door pulleys are relatively cheap with the price ranging anywhere between $10 and $70 for every pulley. If you need to have your pulley’s repaired and live in the Broward, West Palm Beach, or Miami Dade area, do not hesitate to give us a call on our 24-hour hotline.
However, you will need to make a service call for the repair expert to visit the home. A garage door service call is usually around $50 – $115.
What Is the Cost of a Torsion Broken Garage Door Spring Repair?
Before we delve into how much it costs to repair a torsion spring, let us discuss the difference between an extension spring and a torsion spring. One of the major differences between the two is that extensions springs are easy to come by and can be bought from most hardware stores where their price is roughly between $5 and $30 depending on the size.
On the other hand, torsion springs are sold online by garage door companies and retail for as little as $40 and as much as $100.
If your garage door has two springs and one breaks it is recommended that you replace both at the same time, after all, the second one will break soon. By replacing both at the same time, you will also be cutting down on costs as you won’t need a repairman to come a second time. It costs about $50 to repair.
Labor charges for spring replacement or repair are usually around $40 and $70. This labor charge stays the same whether you are replacing both or just one of the broken springs.
Tilt-up door repair or replacement will set you back about $200. If you have a roll-up door, it will definitely cost you more. For a 2-car garage door, replacement or repair can usually be as high as $250.
If your springs are not broken but instead the shaft is not sliding sideways enough, then the brackets will have to be disassembled in order to get to the springs. This might cost you as much as $100.
We usually recommend that homeowners with an automotive door opener schedule maintenance on the same day of the spring repair, that is, making an adjustment, lubing the opener, and motor cleaning.
Cost of Garage Door Repair and Panel Replacement
If your garage door gets damaged, it will probably cost you around $200 to have the garage door panel spot repaired. However, if your garage door is an in-production model, the cost of replacing or repairing the entire panel will probably be around $400 on the higher side and $200 on the lower side. Unfortunately, if you have an older model garage door you might be out of luck as chances are that the panels might no longer be in production, which means you will have to replace the entire garage door.
You don’t always have to replace your garage door. You can always choose to repair it instead, but that depends on the extent of the damage. For issues such as holes, rust, or rot, garage door panels can be quickly repaired.
Average prices for garage door repairs are:
$130 for steel door repairs
$170 for aluminum repairs
$190 for wooden door repairs
$150 for fiberglass repairs
Why Should I Replace my Garage Door?
There are several reasons why you should consider replacing your garage door including:
Cosmetic Damage – This refers to fading, cracked panels, or chipped paint. Basically, any damage that does not affect the operation of the garage door.
Structural Damage – This refers to serious damage that affects the operation of the garage door. For instance, a warped door.
Functionality – This refers to several situations, that is, your garage door closes or opens too slowly or too loudly, gets stuck, or opens halfway.
The Importance of Repairs and Maintenance
We’ve looked at the financial costs of garage door repairs and replacement, but you should never look at money as the bottom line.
A garage door is a huge convenience. It’s your primary way to access your home. A garage with internal access will give you a convenient entry point when it is raining or during a storm.
Of course, if your garage is in good condition, you’ll lose all the benefits of convenience. More importantly, the safety of your home will be compromised.
We know from research and countless news stories that garage doors are often used to gain illegal entry to homes. Criminals often target homes where the garage doors appear poorly maintained or damaged. Even unsecured garage door openers can be used to gain access to homes and businesses. If your door doesn’t open or close properly, if the opener is erratic, or if the door is physically damaged, your home could become the next target for opportunistic thieves. If someone is inside the home when thieves enter, then there’s a serious risk of personal harm or even death.
