How Much Does It Cost To Install A Concealed Closer?
A concealed door closer
, often referred to as an OHC, or overhead concealed closer, is generally found on commercial glass doors such as retail entrance doors, etc. One of the most common questions is how much does this cost?
Well to answer it bluntly, it could easily cost anywhere from $900 on the cheap side to $1500+ on the more expensive side. The average cost for the repair is right around $1000 to $1200. Now let's break it down as to why.
Overhead concealed door closers are not cheap closing devices. Most commercial glass doors will have very expensive models of concealed closers on their doors. However, just because it was expensive doesn't necessarily mean it will last. Chances are if they are calling you out for a repair, the original closer body has failed and is leaking oil. Meaning it will need to replaced. Expensive overhead concealed closers can cost the service company $450 to $750 easily. Service companies will then need to mark that price up atleast 50%, and then finally you are looking at travel time to the job site and the hourly cost for the service company's labor. All in all this can be a very expensive job for a building owner, if your commercial door has broken down.
