Factors to Consider When Having Your Garage Door Repaired
Well, as it is the case with anything that breaks, it really depends on what broke and what needs to be repaired. Luckily there are only a handful of things that could go wrong with your garage door.
Some things to keep in mind when your garage door breaks are: what is the size and style of your garage door? Is it a carport, roll up/commercial garage door, is it customized or solid wood?
Additionally, what exactly isn’t working? Is it the garage door opener, the rollers, a torsion spring? If all you need to do is replace some hardware then you will have a significantly more affordable repair than if you need an entirely new garage door.
And finally, fo you plan on fixing your garage door by yourself or calling your local garage door repair experts?
Should You DIY Garage Door Repairs
If you plan on doing a Do-It-Yourself job then the garage door repairs will cost you only the price of parts. The affordability is what makes DIY jobs so appealing but there are some cons to consider.
DIY garage door repairs are less expensive than professional jobs if (and only if) they are done right the first time and there aren’t any secondary damages.
Hiring a Professional for Garage Door Repairs
Hiring a professional for garage door repairs will come at a higher price than just the parts, but doing so will provide you with the peace of mind that the job will get done correctly. After all, you aren’t just paying for parts and labor, you’re paying for a guarantee that this will be a job well done.
The benefit of paying a professional also means that if you notice anything wrong with your garage door immediately following the repairs they will come back and fix it free of charge.

So how much do garage door repairs cost? Well, it depends on what is broken but on average you can expect to pay between $100 on small repairs and $400 on more serious repairs.
