How Costly Garage Door Repair Can Be?

Advisor4Garage

In case if your garage door functions improperly or is obviously broken you certainly need to repair it. Some say that repairing a garage door can be rather expensive, but it's usually cheaper than replacing a door anyway. If you provide proper routine maintenance and use high-quality spare parts a garage door can last for more than 20 years. Of course, this is not about cheaper doors which are originally made of the parts that have quite poor quality and rarely last longer than 5 years before repair or replacement.

How much does it cost?

What is usually repaired?

Speaking about most common repairs we'd like to mention broken door springs, broken or misaligned garage door track or issues with the door cable. Probably a broken garage spring can be called the most common trouble for a garage owner. The metal lasts for thousands of openings, but sooner or later it will snap and you won't be able to open the door. Typically springs are designed to function for 10-15 years. As for broken garage door track the most often reasons are dust, dirt or debris making it bend up or physical impact like knocking a track with something heavy. You can fix minor things with a mallet, but you will definitely need a skilled and experienced professional to deal with something more serious - for example, with misalignment which can prevent the door from smooth opening and closing. Misaligned sensors often cause garage door misalignment. In such cases you need to press and hold the opener button in order to close the door.
