How much does spring repair cost?

The price for repairing the garage door springs varies a great deal. The average national pricing is around $200. The low end can be $100 with the higher end being slightly over $200. However, the springs themselves aren’t that expensive, so the bulk of what you are paying is for labor.

What Can’t I Open my Garage Door?

Your door could not be opening for a myriad of reasons. However, trying to find what is causing it not to open by yourself is both difficult and dangerous. Generally speaking loose cables, broken cables, or a broken spring is the culprit. At times an issue with the power source can also lead to the door not opening. Check the circuit breakers and the outlets yourself.

We’ve seen doors not opening because they have been separated from the track. You can see if the door is moving along the metal track as it should. If it is then the problem is internal, but a professional can help you.

What Isn’t my Door Closing?

The leading reason in our experience is something that’s interrupting the sensors. You may see the mechanism flash, but something is blocking the path of the infrared light. The mechanism is used to prevent accidents which can endanger someone who is entering the garage. You’ll also want to check the electrical connection to and from the sensors. If everything seems to be working, then the sensors will need to be replaced. A professional garage door repair company will be able to do it for you.
