A Case Study

Most people are busy doing everything from going to work to rushing the kids to practice and wouldn't notice that a single hinge is coming apart on your garage door. If you did notice and called to have us replace the hinge it could approximately cost:

  • Service Call $65.00
  • Hinge: $10.00
  • TOTAL: $75.00

Had you not noticed, it will finally fail and cause a trickle affect of problems such as - the cable slipping, the canting of one or more of the door sections or even worse, the rollers pulling out of the door and the door falling. Repairs to get the door operational could cost the following:

  • Service Call $65.00
  • 3 Hinges: $30.00
  • 16' Strut: $25.00
  • 16' Section: $192.00
  • TOTAL: $312.00

In addition to this, there may be extra hidden costs of the door not working for a time. If your car is trapped inside the garage and you have to call for emergency to untrap the car. This would add an additional $200 to this. If you decide not to ask for emergency service you may have to miss time from work, resulting in lost wages.

If noticed in time, this repair would have cost as little as $75, but now, because no preventive maintenance was performed and no one noticed the damage, it could cost you anywhere from $312 to a thousand depending on if you need emergency service or if you miss work and the extent of the damage to the door itself.
