If you’re looking to get your motor replaced by a professional, it could cost you anywhere from $650 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. 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?
You will need a motor that has equivalent or greater horsepower than your broken one to be able to lift your garage door. A more powerful motor will be more expensive but will raise the door faster. Additional features like wifi/smart home control will also cost you extra.
It’s also important to consider whether you think you can install the motor yourself. While it’s not a difficult job to do if you know how it’s also not hard to mess it up and end up damaging your new motor.
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.
