How Much Is A Garage Door?
Garage doors are a majorly important part of your home, contributing to its curb appeal and providing you with security and convenience. Whether you’re getting a new door or fixing some existing issues, you need to make the best choices for your home and your budget.
The following is an overview of the costs associated with garage doors. Along with reviewing this information, we encourage you to call us for an accurate estimate that reflects your specific needs.
Is It a New Garage Door Installation or a Replacement?
A totally new installation for a garage door tends to be similar in price to a door replacement. However, a replacement sometimes costs less, because it involves reusing hardware that has already been installed, such as the tracks for the door. You don’t necessarily have to pay for those components all over again.
A new installation may range between $700 and $4,000, while the price range for a replacement tends to be $700 to $2,500. Multiple factors affect the cost of installations and replacements. When you contact us about garage doors for your home, we’ll discuss the details with you.
What’s the Size of the Garage?
Is your garage built for one car, or can it accommodate two or more?
For a one-car garage, the average cost of a door typically ranges between $500 and $2,500. If you have a two-car garage, you’ll need either two single doors or one double door. Two single doors may cost between $1,000 and $5,000, while a double door will likely fall between $800 and $4,000.
What about a three-car garage? Most of the time, a garage of this size has a double door and a single door. The price range for this configuration is $1,500 to $6,500. With three single doors instead, the price falls between $1,500 and $7,500.
Another factor to consider is whether you need a larger door to accommodate recreational vehicles. These special doors may range in price from a little over $1,000 to several thousand dollars.
Which Material Are You Choosing?
Garage doors come in a range of materials, and each has its own advantages and typical price range. If you aren’t sure about which material to use for your garage doors, don’t hesitate to consult with us. We’ll make sure the doors work well for your home both functionally and aesthetically.
People typically choose vinyl garage doors for their durability, including resistance to denting and to weather damage. These doors don’t rust, and they can hold up well even in temperature extremes. The typical price range for a vinyl garage door is $1,000 to $2,600.
With a price range of $600 to $2,000, steel is one of the more budget-friendly materials for garage doors. A high-quality steel door is strong, secure, and environmentally friendly, often made from recycled material. If it’s insulated, it can enhance the energy efficiency of your home.
The price range for aluminum is similar to the one for steel. An aluminum garage door will typically cost between $700 and $2,000. Aluminum is a more lightweight material, and it also shows excellent resistance to corrosion.
Fiberglass, which tends to cost between $1,000 and $2,100, can be manufactured with a beautiful finish and strong insulation. This lightweight material resists corrosion and is an especially good choice for locations with warmer weather.
People love the visual appeal of garage doors made from wood, a material that may fall in price between $1,000 and $3,000. There are also alternatives to genuine wood that offer more reliable and low-maintenance protection against moisture and insect damage. When you opt for faux wood or wood composites, the price may range from a little less than $1,000 to more than $4,000.
Some garage doors made of wood or faux wood are pricier, climbing to several thousand dollars or more. The factors affecting the price include the type of wood and whether you want a custom-made door.
What’s the Design of the Garage Door?
There are several popular types of garage doors, and the best choice for your home depends on aesthetics, practicality, and budget constraints.
Standard panels, which slide up to open, are the most affordable type of garage door to install, which is a key reason for their popularity in residential properties. They typically range between $300 and $800.
Ranging between $400 and $1,500 in cost, a roll-up door is an especially good choice for a garage that doesn’t have a lot of ceiling space. The sheets that make up the door roll up around a drum installed at the top of the door’s opening.
You may also want to consider a glass roll-up door, which is made of glass panels in a metal frame. These doors allow more light into your garage, even when they’re closed, and they can help give your home a sleek or elegant look. However, they’re more expensive, with a price range of $700 to $7,000.
When these doors open, they tilt up off the ground. They may be fully retractable, or they may stick out to form a canopy over the door opening. Typically, they cost between $500 and $1,200.
Similar to the French doors you would find in other parts of a house, these are double doors that open out sideways and are made of glass. The general price range is $2,000 to $5,500.
If you want your garage to evoke the classic look of a carriage house, consider getting these secure and stylish doors, which usually open by swinging out. At the high end, they’re a pricy design choice for a garage. Their cost may range from $1,000 to $10,000.
Homeowners sometimes want a pedestrian pass-through door that’s embedded in a regular garage door. To enter or exit the garage, you can make use of this walk-through door without opening the entire garage door. The cost generally ranges from several hundred to several thousand dollars.
Do You Need a Repair?
Sometimes, you don’t need a new installation or a door replacement. The best option for you may be a repair on specific parts of your door system. Overall, repairs tend to fall between $100 and $600. However, more extensive or complicated repairs can become pricier.
When should you choose a repair over a door replacement? In any situation, there are multiple factors to consider, including the age of the door and its components. For example, it usually makes more sense to perform a replacement on a door that’s over a decade old. After evaluating the issues with your door system, we’ll provide you with an accurate estimate and help you make a cost-effective choice.
Garage Door Openers
Maybe your door opener has stopped responding to the wall switch, the remote control, or both. You need to investigate the source of the problem, which may include a signal disruption. Repair costs typically range from $75 to $300.
Your garage door sensors may be misaligned or experiencing other problems. Getting a sensor fixed often costs between $85 and $100.
Are your garage door tracks damaged? Maybe they’re dented or bent. You may need to have them replaced, which can cost between $125 and $300.
The cables for your garage doors may be frayed, or they may not have the proper tension or length. A price range of $85 to $200 is typical for cable repair.
Defective or damaged springs can prove hazardous. Whether you have a torsion spring system or an extension spring system, you shouldn’t hesitate to call us for repairs. The typical price range is $120 to $350.
A malfunctioning lock can seriously compromise the security of your garage and your home more generally. For lock repair, you’ll probably be expected to pay between $95 and $350.
Garage Door Panel
What goes into repairing a door panel? A lot depends on the type of material it’s made of and the nature of the damage. Garage doors get exposed to many damaging forces, including rough weather, temperature extremes, and physical impact from human activity. Your door may have dents and cracks, or it may be showing some signs of decay.
Depending on the age and overall condition of the door, it may make more sense to replace it. However, especially if the damage is localized, a repair may make more sense. Repairing a panel can range anywhere from $250 to $800.
