Top Garage Door Repair related questions

Hiring a Tasker for this can be quick and convenient. Even though finding someone to fix your garage door is as uncommon as finding a glazier or someone to fix your windows and doors - this isn’t the case with Airtasker. You can hire the most skilled and experienced Taskers to do the job; then you pay them once the job’s finished. All this can happen within the day to make your garage usable again. 

No, since most, if not all, Taskers go to your home with their tools and equipment, along with the requisite skills and experience. Feel free to lend tools for the job.

The time it takes for a Tasker to do garage door repairs depends on these factors: the speed at which the Tasker finds the problem, the complexity of the problem and how fast he applies the appropriate fixes. If the problem is simple, the repair job shouldn’t take more than a couple of hours. But if the issue is more complicated, expect the job to take at most the whole afternoon. 

Yes! If you repair garage doors as a business, we don’t see why you can’t hire a Tasker to work for you as one of your garage door fitters, do garage door replacement, garage door cable repair, roller shutter repairs, electric garage door repairs or fix garage doors in general. You can hire Taskers even to do commercial roller door repairs if you wish. Just be sure to specify what you need from Taskers to avoid any misunderstanding. 

There are several common problems that a garage door develops over time. One of the most common is that it becomes noisy, squeaking loudly as it’s opened or closed. This is usually due to rollers that wear out from lack of lubrication on their bearings. Another common problem is a garage door that doesn’t open - this can be caused by broken door springs, worn-out gears or even a burned-out door opener motor.   

It’s possible to repair a garage door by yourself, but only if you have the right skills, tools and experience. There are many moving parts and complicated electronic components on even the most common garage doors and garage door openers, so it can take hours to find the problem. To save time, hire an experienced repairer - book one on Airtasker!

What do garage door repair services include?

Garage door repair services include all the needed tasks to get your broken garage door working again. This is regardless of whether it’s the roller shutter or the up-and-over type of garage door. A skilled handyman can repair either type of garage doors and can test the garage door to ensure the repairs are proper and adequate.  

Inspecting the garage door

Your hired garage door repairman can inspect the different moving parts and components of your garage door to find the cause of the problem. They can check the springs, rails, cables and pulleys for damage or wear and tear. They inspect the glass panes on the garage door if any, and check for cracks or breaks. 

Your repairman can check the tension of the springs, damage or obstructions for the garage door sensors, damage or wear on the hinges, rollers and tracks. The repairman also checks the remote door controller and remote keypad for any damage or weak batteries; they likewise verify the garage door opener for damage or insufficient power. 

Fixing the garage door

After troubleshooting the problem, your garage door repairman performs the needed repairs. They can perform repairs such as lubricating the tracks, rails, pulleys and other moving parts. They may remove rusted or worn sections of the tracks or rails and attach new sections or replace the entire rail. Your repairman can check for any bent tracks and worn or damaged cables and rollers. Should there be any glass panes on the door that are missing or cracked, they can replace these as well. Some repairmen can replace the garage door springs if necessary. 

If the garage door opener is not getting enough power, your repairman can do simple wiring work and fix severed wires by splicing them onto the old plug or a new plug if necessary; you may have to supply these and any other replacement parts. If you don’t have these replacement parts ready, some repairmen may offer to buy these for you from the nearest hardware store. 

Testing the garage door

Once your repairman finds the problems and applies the appropriate repairs, they can proceed to test the garage door and do final checks on all the parts and electronic components. They watch for any unusual movements and listen for strange sounds when the garage door is operated. Apart from the mechanical parts, your repairman does final checks on the electronic components like the door sensors, the remote and remote keypad.  

If any problems or unusual movements are detected during testing, your repairman does troubleshooting again. Your repairman applies the appropriate fixes and tests the garage door again; this will be done as many times as needed until the garage door works without fail.
