Around the country
One of the great things we get to see when talking to our customers from around the country is what they are quoted for an average garage door repair. Now all companies will be different and prices can fluctuate wildly even in the same city. We've seen price quotes from states such as Alaska and Hawaii range from $400-$1200 just for a double spring change! Average costs we do see here in the lower 48 range from $250-$700 for a complete garage door inspection and repair of broken parts. Prices tend to be higher in your most populated states such as California, Texas, and Florida but this also can due to reinforced garage doors due to wind load regulations that require extra supports or "struts" on the doors. that add considerable weight.
