There are many variables that affect the price of a garage door repair. The type of garage door, make and model, the extent of damage, the service provider’s experience, location and time of day are some examples.

The cost for repairing a broken spring (1 year warranty) can range anywhere from $200 to $380 depending on the severity of the damage.

The first type of garage door repairs is the automatic opener. It is a device that opens and closes the garage door when you press a button. The second type of garage door repairs is a broken spring. A broken spring is one of the most common problems with a garage door. The third type of repair is to fix an off track or out-of-balance garage door. If the springs are not properly balanced, then they can cause the tracks to be uneven which will cause it to not open or close correctly.

The fourth type of repair would be if your cables are broken or loose. Cables are what make your springs work so if they’re loose or broken then your springs won’t work and it won’t open or close correctly either.

Professional Garage Door Installation

New garage door installation is a great way to spruce up the exterior of your property and boost curb appeal. At Garage for You, we make it easy to get a new garage door that matches the style and function you need. Some of the most common options include:

● Sectional garage doors

● Roll-up garage doors

● Tilt-up garage doors

● Tilt-up retractable garage doors

Each type of door offers unique advantages. Sectional doors are the most common choice in the greater Chicago area. The door consists of panels and moves on a track, allowing the door to sit parallel to the ceiling.

Many garage doors are also available in insulated and non-insulated models. You can also choose from a wide range of textures, colors, and styles to suit your tastes. Other options to consider include hardware, window inserts, and material. Garage doors are often made from steel, aluminum, wood, or fiberglass.

Our team walks you through the process of comparing and selecting the right type of door and opener for your home. We also provide a limited lifetime warranty on new doors and openers.

Garage Door Opener Installation

Automatic garage door openers save time and energy, allowing you to open and close the garage door with the touch of a button. In many cases, you can install a door opener on an existing garage door.

We have experience installing all types of door openers, including:

● Chain drive openers

● Belt drive openers

● Jackshaft openers

Chain drive openers are the most common solution. A chain pulls or pushes a trolley to move the garage door up and down. Chain drives are affordable and reliable, but a bit noisy.

A belt drive opener provides a smoother, quieter operation compared to chain drive openers. The cost is a little higher, but the quiet operation is ideal for installation in an attached garage.

Jackshaft openers rely on a threaded steel rod instead of a chain or a belt. These openers feature fewer components, resulting in less maintenance and longer service. Yet, the jackshaft opener generates more noise compared to belt drive openers.

At Garage for You, we can help select the right opener for your garage and handle the installation. Correct installation and testing are necessary to ensure that the door sensor and opener function safely.

You can depend on us for all your garage door installation, repair, and maintenance needs. We have years of experience serving the greater Chicago region. Give us a call today to schedule a free estimate.
