What Does a Garage Door Repair Cost

If your garage door recently started making noises or stopped working properly – you may be looking to repair or replace it. For many people, when something isn’t working right, the first thought is often, “How much is this going to cost me?”

Yet, when it comes to garage doors, the cost can vary depending on the age of the system, and the extent of the problem. Because of the weight and strength of the door opening system, it’s important to stay safe and turn to the pros.

Consulting with an overhead door professional can help you to determine whether you need a simple or complex repair, or whether it is time to invest in a new opener.

Simple repairs:

Even though we all have a natural tendency to jump to the worst conclusion, sometimes a squeaky door or one that isn’t opening actually isn’t the end of the world. In some cases, you may just need to grease the track and that noise is gone. If your garage door won’t close, you may need to realign your sensors and clear the path so it’s not obstructed. In other situations, resetting the power breaker or changing the batteries can make a world of difference.

Another easy fix can be done when water or outside elements are coming inside the garage. This may mean that replacing the weather stripping is needed, but a dent or rusted spot may need additional repair work.

Complicated repair

But if you have checked the batteries and sensors, inspected the weather stripping and even greased all the motorized parts – it means there’s a larger problem afoot. Visually inspect the cables and pulleys as these can wear out over time, signs of fraying or damage can mean serious trouble. Also, beware of springs as these hold the entire weight of the door, and this constant pressure can lead to serious injury if they snap or break around people.

In some cases, you may have multiple issues at once. While sometimes it is best to repair what you can, at a certain point you may need to consider another option – replacing it.

Time for replacement

When a garage door is well maintained, it can last for decades, but most wear out or are outdated between 10 and 15 years. These older garage doors need to be retired, because not only are they not performing at their best, but they also could be a safety risk to you and your family. Investing in a new door could mean enhanced security features, quieter, more connectivity and insulation for your home.

Garage doors can range anywhere from 300 to 600 pounds, and are fairly complex systems. While it may seem like an easy fix, it is best to call in the professionals for any repairs or replacements so you can keep yourself and your family safe.
