How much does it cost to fix a garage door?

The cost of a complete garage door repair will depend on the materials, whether your garage door is a manual roller door or automatic garage door and the main issues causing the breakdown. If it’s a simple replacement of the garage door motor, it will be cheaper than replacing the whole door or the entirety of the mechanisms. The cost of materials combined with the cost of labour will be carefully considered during the planning stages of your quote. With regular garage door service, the cost of repairs is generally lower with less work needed. Check out our service plan, if your garage door is less than 11 months old. With a Steel-Line Garage Door Service Plan, you can enjoy peace of mind for less with our 3-year and 5-year service plans at a much lower cost.

Should I repair or replace my garage door?

Whether we need to perform a replacement or repair depends on the severity of the problems, and what needs fixing. The system is constructed so that broken parts can often be fixed, the motor or springs can be replaced, or lubricants topped up, without needing to remove the old doors and install new ones. Sometimes, all that’s needed is new garage door openers.

How do I fix my automatic garage door?

An automatic garage door repair can be a complicated and even dangerous operation, which is why we suggest getting a pro to look at your garage door before attempting your own repair. There are a few things you can do to troubleshoot minor issues, such as:

  • Maintain lubrication
  • Keep the track clean
  • Realign the sensors
  • Check the rollers 
  • Look over the cables and pulleys
  • Check whether the Auto-Reverse is functional

For more information on how to perform these garage door regular maintenance, refer to your garage door user manual. If the issue is any greater than these, please contact a professional as soon as possible to avoid an emergency. 

Why does my door need maintenance?

Garage doors and their automatic operators must work 24/7 in all weather conditions. The last thing we want is for something to go wrong and to hear either you are stuck in the rain or stuck outside late at night.

Like anything, with a little care and attention, your door will keep performing long into the future. We recommend that it is serviced by a garage door technician every 12 months to make sure it is lubricated and correctly aligned. In some cases, a lack of servicing could affect your warranties.

Is a garage door tune-up worth it?

Having your garage roller door tuned up, the motor checked, lubricants topped up, and springs replaced or examined – can save you costly repair in the future, or keep you from emergency situations. 

Those who avoid getting their garage roller door fixed or the quality of the mechanisms checked run the risk of the door falling, not working, coming off its hinges, or breaking a spring. Like any mechanism, regular tune-ups and servicing are essential to get a long life out of the product.

What is involved in a garage door service?

There is a range of major and minor checks required during an installation or service. A garage door service includes the lubrication of the critical moving parts including the springs, hinge points, rollers and locking device, a check of the position of the garage door on the tracks, replacement of the motors or electronics if needed, coding and syncing of the garage door openers, barrels, weather seals, cables, springs and locks. Your garage door repair services include a thorough check of all of the above mentioned. A reliable company will only repair or replace what is needed, ensuring your doors are in top working order.

How do you service steel garage doors?

Most servicing types and requirements call for a technician to do the job safely and completely. If you’re looking to perform minor servicing to keep your roller doors in top condition and smooth operation between technician visits, you can grease the springs, clean the guides, wash the door panels with soapy water.
