Replacing a broken garage door motor used to be a costly exercise. Now, most garage door motors can be replaced by the owner fairly easily, with the only expense being the new motor!
If you’re looking to get your motor replaced by a professional, it could cost you anywhere between $200 to $600 depending on the type of garage door you have. Heavier and more complex doors will need a better motor, which will cost more to replace. Replacing the garage door cable could add another $100 to the cost. And once you factor in the cost of the service itself, you could be looking at a serious expense.
How to Change A Garage Door Motor
- What is the horsepower of your broken motor?
- What features do you need?
- Do you have the skills to replace your own garage door?
Can I Replace the Garage Door Cable Myself?
Unlike the motor, which simply connects to the door, the garage door cable itself is a much tougher job. Because of the weight of the door and the tension of the garage door springs, replacing the cable requires specialized tools and knowledge. If your garage door cable has broken or is on its way out, contact our team today for a replacement quote.
