Garage Door Repair Prices: What Should a Repair Cost You?

We believe that garage door repair should be straightforward: The customer should know exactly what type of repair is necessary, and garage door pricing transparency should be a given – not something out of the ordinary.

Unfortunately, with some of the leading companies who provide garage door repair, that isn’t always the case. That’s why we make our garage door prices clear.

Because our garage door repair prices are at or below the national average, you won’t get any surprises from your Puls technician. No jargon, no bait-and-switch. Just an upfront picture of what needs to be done, and how much it will cost.

Garage Door Inspection

During the inspection, your technician will check the batteries in your remote, fix your photo eye laser sensor, calibrate your remote as well as your limit switch, and make sure that your belt or chain is on sprocket.

Often times, quick fixes like the ones included in the 25-point inspection can take care of any issues your garage door might be having. Sometimes, a more in-depth repair might be necessary.

At Puls, our 25-point garage door inspection costs $39 and the fee is waived if you decide to do your repair with us.

A garage door spring replacement with Puls ranges from $170 to $340, depending on factors such as your garage's size and the extent of the overall damage.

Garage Door Remote Repair/Programming

It’s always worrisome if your garage door isn’t opening or closing properly – but it might not be as bad as you think. Before concluding that you need a whole new garage door opener, ask a Puls technician to have a look at your garage door remote.

If you’ve determined that you’re within range and your remote still doesn’t work, it may need reprogramming, or could have low battery or faulty wiring.

Garage Door Off Track

It’s not uncommon for garage doors to go off-track – either on their own, or if the track is bent out of shape. While a leading home repair website says the cost of getting that garage door back on track is usually around $125 to $150, our repair starts at just $65. For a roller replacement, we charge from $110 to $120, and a cable replacement with Puls starts at just $90.
