      San Diego garage door repair costs

      The average cost for standard garage door repairs in San Diego ranges from $179-$376. Pricing typically includes separate costs for parts and labor. Type of material, opener system and style of garage door affects the installation price and may affect future repair costs.

      Some people choose to buy their parts wholesale and have them installed by a professional. However, some contractors charge more for labor if you supply your own garage door parts.

      When collecting quotes from San Diego garage door repair companies, be sure to ask about travel fees, weekend/holiday fees and minimum charges for service calls on repairs.

      Emergency repairs performed during night or weekend hours might incur additional fees, but some companies operate 24/7 and do not charge extra for emergency calls. Emergency service generally applies to situations where the car is trapped, the garage door is stuck or door malfunction is causing a security issue.
