How much will a new garage door installation cost you? That depends on a number of factors such as size, material and insulation, but a general estimate is anywhere from $750 to $2,000. Most doors will average somewhere around $1,000 but two or more doors made of quality materials and insulation could run as high as $4,000. Ask several local garage door service companies for estimates and then compare.
Much of the cost of installing a new garage door comes down to the material used. A 16-by-7 aluminum double door tends to be between $1,500 to $2,000. Steel overhead doors tend to start around $750 but can run as high as $3,500 for decent insulation thickness. Wood doors start on the low end of $1,200 but can cost as high as $4,000. People tend to opt for them because of their natural beauty. Composite wood doors tend to be cheaper at anywhere from $1,200 to $2,200. Set a budget for your new garage door installation and go from there.
Do You Want an Insulated Door?
Insulation not only keeps your garage warmer but can make your entire home more energy efficient, if you have an attached garage. Construction features and insulation have come a long way over the last couple of decades. Today’s insulated garage doors are extremely well sealed against the elements.
This can be especially helpful if you have a living area or bedroom over top the garage or if you use your garage as a living space. It also tends to reduce the noise of opening and closing the door.
Naturally, installing an insulated garage door adds more expense to garage door replacement cost.
Don’t Forget About the Opener
If you are considering installing an automatic opener, you might want to get the opener from the same garage door service that installs the door. This way you can be sure the opener will have a strong enough motor for the door. This will depend on the size of your overhead garage door.
