Factors Affecting Garage Door Repair Costs

Recent data shows a garage door repair can average anywhere from $99 to $600. Many factors may impact the repair costs, including: style, materials, openers, and finish. These factors can help you budget the repair or replacement.

Style

The style of your door affects how easy or how difficult a repair may be. Custom doors and solid wood doors are the most expensive to repair, while single tile up models are the most affordable. 

Materials

The more expensive the material, the more expensive the repair will be. More expensive models mean higher repair and replacement prices. Steel doors are typically more affordable than wooden doors, but there are a range of options available so you can choose one that works best for your budget. Thicker models will also cost more. 

Openers

Most modern doors come with an electric opener, and if the problem is with the opener rather than the door itself, you will have a more cost effective repair bill. The issue with large repair costs mostly lies in the door itself. 

Finish

If a new door installation no longer matches the trim or exterior of your new home, painting and finishing will need to be done to match it. While this is not a necessity, it can add to the repair or replacement costs.
