Garage Door Spring Repair Cost

 

Garage Door Spring Repair Cost an average of $250 for both materials and labor with a typical range between $150 and $350 which includes replacing two springs. For multi-door garages or installs needing other components replaced, you might pay up to $500.

Repair almost always means replacement, but you might only need to balance the door and lubricate the springs, which only costs $50 to $100. Materials alone (springs, brackets and hardware) run $30 to $200 for a set of two springs with labor running $75 to $150.

Most doors include two springs, both of which you can’t repair but only replace once they fail. You probably won’t notice the first spring break until the second one goes. Even if only one fails in any way, you should replace both at the same time to maintain door balance. Besides, if one failed, it’s only a matter of time until the other one does. It’s usually cheaper to replace both during the same visit.
