Garage Door Prices - It's Better to Shop Around

By: Adam Stranton

The price of a good garage door is dependent upon many factors. Apart from just the material it is made from, the garage door will cost you much lesser if you install it yourself instead of getting a professional to do it for you. The incurred price will also be higher if you need a wind rated door, or if the size of the door is irregular. However, you can easily get a garage door between $300-$3000.
Given below are some of the common garage door prices:
$300-$500 (not installed) - a new average-sized 16'x7' garage door. These low garage door prices do not include installation. The price will depend on the type of door chosen. This price may sometimes even get you a door with foam insulation and steel clad. The door will come with instructions. You will need the usual tools for installation. Installation of the door can be done with 2-3 mechanically-inclined people.
$400-$700 (installed) - a new 16'x7' tilt-up or rolling up wood or aluminum door with outside plywood. Aluminum single tilt garage doors are very lightweight, and they do not rust. However, they dent easily. These types of garage door prices include professional installation.
$600-$700 (installed) - purchasing a new16'x7', non-insulated single door of a cheaper brand. These garage door prices also include professional installation.
$750-$1,200 (installed) - This range would offer a new 16'x7'garage door inclusive of professional installation. Cheaper types are mostly just a single metal plane , whereas more expensive ones come with foam insulation sandwiched between two thick metal panels. More high priced models include thicker metal sheets (extra two inches thicker) with more insulation, along with weather tolerance agents. Usually, steel doors are a better choice because neither do they rust, nor do they need repainting as much as wooden doors do. On the other hand however, it is difficult to repair them if they get dented.
$800-$1,000 (installed) - these garage door prices will get you a new 16'x7' sectional roll-up insulated door, designed to be painted, plus professional installation.
$1,200-$2,000 (installed) - Inclusive of professional installation, this category of garage door prices can get you a 16'x7' standard higher-grade roll-up stained wood door panel. This price may go up or down depending upon any additional designs on the panel, or the type of wood used.
$1,200 (installed) - a quality steel, 16'x8' garage door constructed of two panels and 2 inches of polyurethane foam, with a low maintenance exterior. The price also includes installation.
$1,300 (installed) - measuring 16'x7', this price offers a high wind rated garage door inclusive of installation costs.
$2,500-$3,000 (installed) - a new custom-built wood door. Wood is popular because of its natural look and style. However, wood doors require regular maintenance, since it may start cracking and warping with age. These high garage door prices may also be caused by the irregular size of the door, such as a high end oversize 18'x8' door with a motor. Price includes professional installation.
Garage door prices vary on multiple factors. The price range is very wide ($300-$3,000), so it is a good idea to do some shopping in order to find the best prices.
