Not the season, but the spring on my garage door. I briefly thought about replacing it myself. I found a great resource for the do-it-yourselfer written by Richard J. Kinch. I decided, however, that I did not want to mess with it so I called TOD (Tulsa Overhead Door). Armed with some information from the aforementioned site, I was ready to do battle.
A fair price for a professional repair, including the service call, parts, labor, and warranty, in most US locales is $100 to $150. This was the case in the early 2000s. Times change.Fortunately, TOD was fair and honest; I would recommend them to anyone who needs help with their garage door. My final bill was 157.49; well with in the expected range described by Kinch (when one considers inflation since 2000). Thank TOD for the excellent, fast, and fair service, and thanks to Mr. Kinch for his outstanding resource concerning garage door torsion springs
What Do the Professionals Overcharge for This?
I have received many tales by email of various swindles for upwards of $800 involving garage door repairs, or $1000s in needless door replacements. Beware of various tricks.
