How Much Does it Cost to Repair a Roller Garage Door?

A garage door breaking can be incredibly inconvenient. Unfortunately, with such complex mechanisms at play, there’s always a chance that a fault can occur which can render the door unusable. If your garage door does stop working, then you’re likely going to be concerned about how much repairs will set you back; read on to find out about the cost of repairing a roller garage door. 

Garage door issues

Broken garage door lock

Repairing a broken garage door lock will cost between £35 and £85. Depending on the type of lock and its age, prices can vary.

Broken roller door straps

A crucial element of any roller garage door, the straps will need replacing with urgency if there’s a problem. Replacing roller garage door straps can cost between £15 and £35.

Broken door rollers

Broken door rollers are a leading cause of your garage door jamming. Depending on where the garage door jams, it may be easy for an intruder to crawl under it and access your belongings. The cost of replacing your garage door rollers varies between £40 and £70. 

Broken door cables

Another vital component, if you see your garage door cables showing signs of fraying, or if one has completely broken, then you need to replace them as a matter of urgency. The cost of replacing a garage door cable is between £40 and £90.

Broken garage door fob

If you have a remote garage door, then of course the fob is an important accessory. While you may be able to open your garage door manually, a broken fob can be very inconvenient, even rendering the door unusable for people with disabilities or those who struggle to open it manually. Replacing a broken garage door fob can cost between £15 and £50.

Repair costs

There isn’t an industry-standard cost for repairing a garage door, but there are some figures and estimates we can use to gauge how much it might cost. According to Checkatrade, the estimated national average for garage door repairs is around £80, with prices ranging from £40 to £120, including labour and materials. Of course, if you have multiple faults, then the cost could be considerably higher. 

Repair vs replacement

While replacing a garage door might cost more in the short-term, it is almost certainly a better long-term investment. If your garage door is in poor condition or has suffered repeated faults, you’re likely to be spending much more money on recurring repairs than the cost of a one-off payment for a replacement. 

Particularly if you have an older garage door, opting for a replacement is the sensible choice. By getting a brand new, modern garage door installed in your property, you can enjoy peace of mind knowing it’s unlikely to break anytime soon. 

With such a wide range of doors available from trusted, experienced suppliers like Rollerdor, there’s a perfect replacement waiting for an excellent price. Our classic, superior and executive roller doors are all made-to-measure, bespoke to your requirements and fully installed by our experts.
