When people call us up and say, “Fix my garage door,” the next question they usually have is cost. It depends on the job, but we can give an estimate over the phone. Just give us a call, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, or book an appointment online.
Garage door cost depends largely on the type of repair and the model of door. Some repairs, such as debris in the door or a door off track, are fairly easy to fix. Broken panels, opener replacement, faulty springs will cost more. Cost is generally weighed out according to the time required to fix it and the expense of the replacement materials required.
Minimum costs start around $50. The average homeowner pays between $156 and $211. People rarely spend over $500, unless the door needs to be outright replaced.
What About the Price of a New Garage Door?
Garage door prices will vary considerably, depending on what the panel is made of and where you live. For example, service in Carmichael might cost differently than a town in another state. But for the most part, a garage door replacement will run between $200 to $4,000 or more. A few different reports have found that the average homeowner spends about $1,000 on installing a new garage door.
Here are a few other things that can affect the price:
- The number of doors you need. Example: a wide two-door garage will cost more than a single one.
- Insulated doors with high R-value to help keep cold and hot air out of your garage and home.
- Steel garage doors come in varying thickness measured in gauges. Higher gauges or thicker panels will cost more.
Those are just a few examples. Fortunately, you have many options when it comes to choosing a new garage door, so the cost can be very flexible. But don’t feel overwhelmed with all the options.

The Different Types of Garage Doors
There are two types of garage doors- steel doors and wooden doors. Steel doors need to be completely replaced if there is damage. Wooden doors are usually composed of panels, so only that panel needs to be replaced. Steel doors are hardier so need to be replaced less. Customized wooden doors tend to be the most expensive.

Garage Door Insulation is Important — Even in California
You might think living in Sacramento that you don’t need insulation on a garage door. But if you are thinking about installing a new garage door, we strongly urge you to consider it. Insulation doesn’t just keep warm air in during the winter. It keeps hot air out during the summer. If your garage is attached to the house, an insulated door keeps your garage from getting too hot, which in turn makes it easier to cool your house. Insulated doors are energy efficient because you’ll be able to run your air conditioner less and spend less on electricity. The savings can be significant.
