Garage doors provide one of the major entryways into your home, so you want to be sure that they are secure and in good working order. If you're having problems with your current door, then you need to have a professional determine if it can be repaired or if it will need to be replaced. Here are some of the most common factors that will affect the cost of a garage door repair.
Garage Door Styles
Depending on the style of your door, some repairs can be made more easily than others. Single tile-up models are the most affordable doors. Single roll-up are also on the affordable side of the spectrum. Custom roll-up models will be more expensive, and solid wood custom doors are the most expensive.
Garage Door Materials
Not all garage door materials are created equally, and the more expensive models typically mean higher garage door repair prices, as well as higher garage door replacement costs. Steel doors tend to be more affordable than wood models, but there are ranges in both kinds so you will likely be able to find a replacement door in the material you wish in your budget. Thicker, more insulated premium models can also cost more.
Most modern garage doors come with electric openers. Sometimes these malfunction and can be repaired relatively easily. If your main issue with your garage door is your opener, then garage door repair prices should be relatively low since it would mean the door itself is not the issue.
Garage Door Finishing
If you install a new door and the color doesn't match the trim or exterior of your home anymore, then painting or finishing will need to be done. This isn't a necessity, but if you choose to add this on then it will increase garage door replacement or repair costs.
