Your Garage Door is the largest moving part of your home where many elements work together to create a harmonious, working entrance to your garage. Dysfunctional hardware, damage to the door or its system can make the entire structure extremely dangerous and could cause major damage to your property, serious injury to a person and, in worst cases, could result in death.

Even in cases where a fix seems as easy as replacing a part, it is recommended that a professional is brought in to assess the damage and ensure that it did not cause any further, unseen risks.

We try our best to determine the cost of a repair before our teams go out on the job; however, it is near impossible to make an exact determination without inspecting the site first.

Please contact us to discuss the damages to your garage door and we will be happy to assist with an estimate as far as we can.
If we find that further work or parts need replacing while on site, we will first contact you before proceeding with the work.

Kindly note that should you require a call-out for a quotation, a call out fee will be charged regardless of whether the quote is accepted.
