Garage Door Repair Cost

Things to look for in Garage Door Repair Cost.
Winter is here and the garage door repair season is the highest demand. The most common repairs are springs, cables, and garage door openers. When repairing springs on a two car door prices range from $179 – $139. Cable changes average $139 – $179. And opener replacement for Liftmaster chain drives averages $300 -400 depending on door height and number of remotes needed. Most good companies will give you a cost over the phone for these repairs, be careful if they are unwilling to provide you with a close price and if your repairs are more then $400 give a couple of companies a call, so your not paying the high price for repairs. And if you hit the $1000 mark for a door repair you can get a new Clopay garage door for that cost depending on size and if you want an insulated door. We wish everyone Happy Holidays with some friendly advice to help you make an informed discussion. Please share this with family and friends. Continue reading “Garage Door Repair Cost”
