If you have a problem with your garage door or your garage door opener, what do you do? You could try and find the manufacturer’s information and give them a call. But if you want fast, affordable garage door repair, call a local locksmith.
But how much does garage door repair cost? That depends primarily on what type of repair your garage door requires. But on average, you can expect to spend somewhere between $125 and $290. Here’s a more detailed breakdown of costs by repair type.
Garage Door Chain and Pulley Repair Cost: $85-$200
When your garage door screeches and squeaks when going up and down, you may need the chain and pulley system repaired or replaced. It may be either the chain or the pulleys, but they are most often replaced at the same time. If the chain breaks, your garage door could come crashing down with no resistance, potentially causing injury or damage. It is best to repair or replace it when the noises start.
Garage Door Cable Repair: $85-$200
Screeching or whining noises when the door goes up and down may indicate a need for cable repair. Periodic greasing and oiling of the cables will help prevent noises in between repair or replacement and ease the strain on your opener.
Garage Door Track Replacement: $125-$200
If your garage door won’t open and close properly, if it hangs unevenly from one side to the other, or if the wheels are not running smoothly on the tracks when the door is moving, you may need the track replaced. If there’s nothing wrong with the track, the garage door may just need to be realigned on the track, which will run between $170 and $290.
Garage Door Sensor Repair: $85-$100
If the garage door goes part way down but stops and goes back up, you may have a sensor issue. First, check to make sure there is nothing blocking the sensor and that it is clear of any dirt or debris. If there is nothing in the way, the sensor may be damaged. Repair or replacement of the sensor is necessary to get the door to go down.
Garage Door Opener Repair: $100-$190
The garage door opener, not to be confused with the garage door remote, can often be repaired. However, if it is beyond repair and needs to be replaced, the opener could cost between $300 and $500. A garage door opener remote, the piece you keep in your car and clip onto the visor, can cost as little as $35.
Garage Door Lock Repair: $100 or less
Usually, repair or replacement of the garage door locking mechanism is no more than $100. But it depends on the type of garage door and the type of lock. Having properly working locks on your garage door is an important security measure for your home.
Garage Door Installation: $650-$2400
Installation of a brand new garage door could cost anywhere in this price range. The cost typically depends on the type, size, and the number of garage doors that need to be replaced. Each separate door requires its own opener, which increases the cost.
