Solve problems with broken door closers for residential or commercial properties


The biggest indicator of whether your door closer is broken is if it still opens the door completely. If it’s not, then it may be damaged or defective. You can easily do this simply by opening and closing the door itself multiple times.

The final cost will vary depending on the type of door closer you get, as well as other mitigating factors. But in general, a new door closer replacement will cost somewhere within the range of $100 to $200, which includes the cost of the parts and the installation cost. The price could still rise, if you have your eye on really expensive parts.

The most important thing you have to keep in mind when purchasing a door closer, like with any commercial product, is the warranty. Make sure you get a warranty that covers at least two years. Any less, and you’re probably getting a poor quality part.

Yes. A professional installer will have the right tools and experience to do the job right the first time around. This means the job is finished faster, and you don’t need to worry about the door closer breaking down after a few months. 

No. You can use a different brand. The only thing you need to consider is whether the new door closer will meet the same specifications as the old one.

Different Types of Door Closers

While all door closers tend to have the same function and purpose, they can come in different shapes and sizes. There are also six main types that you will usually see:

Modern with removable covers
Modern without cover
Concealed in door
Concealed in frame
Concealed in floor

Aside from the type of door closer, the arms of the door closer also vary. This is an important distinction because different door closer arms serve different applications. There are four main types available:

Hold-Open arms, which prevent the door from closing physically
Dead-stop arms, which rely on a built-in back check that protects against swinging the door too far
Spring-stop arms, which is similar to dead-stop arms but rely on a built-in spring
Heavy-duty arms, as the name implies, this type of door closer arm is designed for areas with high winds or high traffic. It helps prevent the closer arm from breaking down due to overuse or heavy force.
