"Larry did an excellent job. Fast, same day service as advertised. He repaired a bent panel on the door and replaced some rollers. He then aligned the door, so it would operate quieter and put less stress on my opener. Overall he was very thorough, and the cost was reasonable. I would definitely recommend his service."

"I needed an emergency repair as my door was making a loud grinding noise and would not open. I called around, and the first person to answer their phone was Larry. He Face-Timed me and determined my door opener was stripped. He gave me an approximate quote over the phone and said he could come out immediately and replace my opener.
At this point, I didn't care what he replaced it with; I needed my garage door to open so I could get to work. He arrived within 45 minutes and opened my door for me. I left him to do the opener replacement and whatever else he needed to do to make things work.
My door is working correctly, and the speed that the door opens is way better now. I am impressed with Larry's service and an overall get-it-done attitude."

Garage Door Repair FAQ

Garage Door Spring Repair is one of the most common problems we receive in Walnut Creek, CA. When the cold weather comes, we usually get an increase in garage door problems caused by older torsion springs. As the spring gets brittle with a quick change of temperature, it can snap and cause your garage to not open all the way, close all the way, or not close.
The average cost to replace springs on a garage door is $400-$600. Prices will vary depending on the materials used, door size, and location. A garage door spring repair is necessary because it supports the garage door's weight. It holds the door as it opens and closes. If a spring breaks, the door will go down very fast, and if it is left hanging, it can cause serious injury. It is essential to note. Both must be replaced if one spring goes out and you have two springs.

The cost will vary depending on where you live, the size of the door, and the characteristics. But, you can spend as little as $200 on the job or as much as $1500 for a huge and heavy door. The average cost is about $500.

The cost of garage door rollers ranges. The cost of replacing the rollers depends on the type of garage door and the material used. Rollers can be made of either steel or nylon, with prices ranging between $36 and $90, while the cost to replace nylon rollers can be as low as $30. The cost to replace the rollers ranges from $60 to $300 and more. The cost of replacing the rollers can be as low as $100 for a steel roller and $350 for a nylon one.

The average cost to replace cables is between $150 and $300 but could be more or less depending on several factors. These include the number of springs on the door, the type and size of the door, whether the cables are attached directly to the springs or a drum, and the cost of any additional parts you may need. Most garage doors use torsion springs to lift the door, but some use compression springs. If you have torsion springs, the cables are part of the springs and will be replaced as a unit. However, if you have compression springs, the cables are separate and need to be replaced.

Garage door rollers last somewhere between 7 to 10 years. It all depends on the quality, the material type, the brand, and the frequency of use. The quality of the roller should be the best. Get a branded one. The rollers will wear out sooner if the garage door is used heavily. Large doors with rollers used frequently should be checked for maintenance at least once a month to ensure proper alignment and longevity of the rollers.

The average cost of a garage door opener replacement in Walnut Creek is $900. That is the average amount homeowners paid for garage door opener replacement in 2023. The average replacement cost depends on garage door material, model, and repair charges. As a result, you can expect to pay between $800 and $1400, including installation costs, to replace your garage door opener. We are a LiftMaster dealer and recommend this brand.
