Garage door parts shortage drives prices up with no solution in sight
Shortages of garage door parts are causing prices to skyrocket. Manufacturers have increased their prices by 50% since January 2021.

ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, June 2, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ – Since the onset of COVID, homeowners have been reinvesting money in their homes. Part of this investment is to make long overdue repairs on garage doors or door openers as well as garage door replacement. With demand higher than ever, manufacturers have struggled to follow the strict protocols imposed on them by local and federal governments.
Ryan Lucia, owner of Aaron Overhead Doors, has some concerns: “Since January we have received 50% increases on garage doors and some parts. It is expected to increase 100% on hardware by December. The garage door industry is not alone in being hit hard by rising prices. Lumber is up sharply since the fourth quarter of last year. With the rise in material prices, companies like Aaron Overhead Doors are forced to pass this cost on to homeowners.
If you are in the market for a new garage door or if you come across a broken spring, you may soon be out of luck. “On Memorial Day weekend we learned that we may have run out of sources. Like the whole country. This means that if your garage door cannot open, we may not be able to replace the springs. We have inventory to last a little longer, but we’re charging double what we were doing just a year ago for a spring replacement. Ryan said.
Ryan also hosts an industry podcast and has built great relationships with vendors. Ryan went on to say that no one can explain why there is a shortage and what might be the estimated time for a return to normal. Ryan explained, “We get doors that we have been waiting for over 3-4 months and they come without all the parts to install them. This is a real problem. It’s worse since January than everything last year.
