Should You Repair Your Garage Door, Or Buy A New One?

Repairing your existinq door, rather than purchasing a new one, may save you hundreds of dollars. Although many garage door companies sell entry-level non-insulated doors for around $500 (and we do, too), if you want an insulated quality door that will last several years, it’s going to cost you at least a few hundred dollars more. So, with the economy the way it is and your probable desire to save money wherever you can, repair over purchase may be your best choice.

Simple repairs that only require adjustments may cost you less than $100. Typical repairs, such as replacing a spring, usually cost no more than $150. Of course, more involved repairs, such as replacing a door panel, costs more, but is far less expensive than purchasing a new door.
