Frequently Asked Questions

New Garage Doors

Garage doors have a lifespan of about 15 to 30 years. They should be replaced somewhere within that timeframe, whenever your garage shows signs of sagging or decay. Whenever your garage door shows signs of deterioration, call Good Guys Garage Door Solutions to replace your door.

Garage door installation costs can vary depending on the type of brand, material, and customization done on your door, but usually ranges from $2,000 to $10,000 or more. Good Guys Garage Door Solutions takes pride in being transparent in our pricing options and offering the best solutions to all our customers. 

Garage door installation should be done only by professionals. Trained garage door installers know how to properly install overhead doors and their components so they won’t fall off the tracks. If a garage door isn’t installed correctly, the parts may grind and rub, causing damage to not only the garage door system but your home as well.

Depending on the damage done to your door, garage door panel replacement is possible in some cases. If the damage is more than just on one panel, it may be a more cost-effective option to have a full garage door replacement.

With clear glass panels, yes, people will be able to see into your glass garage door. However, we offer tinted, frosted, mirrored, and etched glass which will ensure the privacy of your home while still giving you a gorgeous glass garage door. 

Upon planning for a new garage door, what you want your new garage door to look like might be the only tough part! Good Guys Garage Door Solutions is with you all the way to installation day for installing your new garage door.

Before installation day, all we ask is a clean garage for our team to freely move long and heavy materials. As long as personal items are cleared away from the front, middle, and sides of the garage, we’ll be able to access the door systems and promptly complete your new garage door installation.

Of course! If your home has unique measurements, and we need to install a taller door than is standard, we can customize the right garage door for you. View our Garage Door Installation page for the various styles and types of garage doors we have replaced and installed near Miami, Kendall, Palmetto Bay, Pinecrest, and Coral Gables FL.

We can install any brand of garage door, but our favorite garage door and garage door opener brands we install are LiftMaster, CloPay, Haas Door, Hurricane Master, and Raynor. 

Garage Door Repair

Garage door springs only last a finite amount of time. Just like every other garage door part, they will need to be replaced when they eventually break down. Garage door springs work together with your cables and opener to lift and lower the weight of your overhead door. Usage of your garage will over time cause these springs to experience wear and tear. When you need garage door spring replacement, call Good Guys Garage Door Solutions.

You can avoid costly garage door repairs by scheduling one of our repair services as soon as you spot an issue. Good Guys Garage Door Solutions also recommends having annual garage door maintenance done to prolong the life of your overhead door.

The most common is either you’re in need of a garage door spring replacement, or your garage door opener isn’t working.

Loose nuts and bolts are the most common cause of rattling noises from your garage door. If you hear rattling noises coming from your garage door, schedule garage door maintenance so a professional can inspect the issue. Good Guys Garage Door Solutions recommends annual garage door maintenance to balance your garage door, tighten your garage’s nuts and screws, and lubricate all of your garage door system’s components.

Garage Door Opener Repair

A flashing garage door opener usually indicates a problem with the safety sensors. Check to see if your sensors are blinking. Also, try to clean them off and then see if the photo eyes are aligned correctly. If this still doesn’t fix your issue, you most likely have an issue with your garage door opener. Contact our service team for garage door opener repair near you.

Our skilled repairmen know how to repair garage door opener systems. It doesn’t matter what brand of garage door opener you have, we can fix it.
