What Does Garage Door Repair Cost?

What is the most massive moving object in your home?

If you guessed the garage door, you’re correct.

Double-car garage doors measure 16’ X 7’ and can weigh upwards of 400 pounds!

Ensuring the structural integrity of the door and its many components is crucial. Properly maintained, it should last upwards of 30 years, depending on the material. Today’s openers are designed with a 10- to 15-year lifespan, on average.

You should act immediately to avoid dealing with a substantial headache, not to mention, a significant safety risk anytime the door begins to malfunction. Always hire a garage door repair professional for a malfunctioning door or opener.

Cost Considerations for Repair

Several factors can affect garage door repair cost. These include the specific parts giving you trouble as some components cannot be repaired and must be replaced. Door assembly (i.e., size, style, material) may also impact price. It always an excellent idea to contact a local garage door repair professional for an accurate estimate.

Common Garage Door Problems

Track Misalignment: The tracks guide the door’s movement during operation. They must be regularly wiped clean using a damp cloth as well realigned when, not if, something bumps into them. The latter requires an expert as does any substantial impact damage. If comfortable, you may repair minor dents by gently hitting them with a rubber mallet. Another critical component of the track assembly is the rollers. These too require professional replacement.

A Noisy Garage Door: Another common issue that plagues homeowners is noise. Noise is often associated with a lack of lubrication, wearing rollers, or chain-driven openers. All moving parts require semi-annual lubrication. Always use professional-grade oil (NOT WD-40!) Roller replacement, vibration isolators, and belt- or screw-drive opener installation requires the help of a professional.

Broken Garage Door Springs: Behind every garage door are torsion springs. These use torque to lift the weight of the door each time it’s opened. Torsion springs feature between 10,000 and 20,000 cycles. The number of years torsion springs last depends on spring type and daily usage. Broken garage door springs must be replaced in pairs, if applicable, by a garage door repair professional.

Faulty Photoelectric Sensors: Garage door openers rely on two sensors – located on both sides of your garage door about six inches from the ground up – for operational safety. The sensors must be perfectly aligned and free from obstructions as they are designed to prevent entrapment. Faulty photo eyes typically result in a door that is either nonoperational or will not all close all the way. Hire a pro to diagnose and repair faulty sensors.

No doubt they are the best garage door company in the valley. Had them out to replace an opener, springs, rod and gave me a very good quote to add a 2nd opener on the small door. Cody was the technician doing the work, great guy, very helpful and took his time explaining my options.

Jennifer Richardson

Really saved our night. When we discovered the spring had broken on our garage door, locking our cars inside, it was a stressful situation. At first we thought we’d have to wait til morning but Arizona’s Best Garage Door got technicians over the same night, fixed the door at a fair price, and got us unstuck in time for me to pick up my teenager (saving us Uber money). They did a great estimate and stuck to it. And when my big dog barked at strangers in the house they both took time to put him at ease. It was an excellent resolution to our little emergency

Jennifer Sorensen

Google verified job · Very responsive ! I am the landlord and this is a rental for me. It was almost as if I was there but didn’t have to be. Travis communicated with me, sent pictures/video, cared about my budget, went above and beyond with a temporary fix until a replacement door could be installed. Made sure I benefited from current incentives, price was reasonable. Travis was my main point of contact and could not have been better. I have never given any service 5 stars. REALLY impressed and positive about this experience. Thank you so much !

Tim & Cody were great. Cody explained everything in details and terms I could understand. Cody made special accommodations for my handicap and made me feel at ease with his professionalism. He is dedicated to his craft and it shows. My only complaint would be with google for only letting me rate up to 5 stars when they deserve a lot more. Great company, excellent service, could not of dreamed of any better. Thanks a Million Guys!!

Came out and completed requested repairs on my garage doors and as completing inspection, found several other ares that they recommended replacement parts. Most of the parts were original to the home (1995) so I wanted peace of mind that our doors would function with no issues moving forward. Our technician, Travis, took the time to explain what he saw and was very through in his work. Thanks again and will highly recommend.

Fast, fair, friendly. Understanding I’m a baller on a budget. They communicated any needs I may also need but didn’t pressure any sales. I like that. There was a training session going on with a newbie worker and they hire some outstanding people. This place is legit. Finally, the communication from their dispatch was outstanding. I wasn’t nervous about price or nothing. They were straight forward. Good stuff guys!
