Think you may need new garage door installation but on the fence about replacement? One of the biggest factors in your decision is probably the cost. Many homeowners wonder how much garage door replacement costs.
There’s actually not one universal answer to that question! Garage door prices are influenced by a number of different things, including regional conditions. Excluding that, other factors that impact the cost of a new garage door include:
This is one of the biggest factors that affect the price of a garage door. While wood doors have aesthetic benefits, they tend to be more expensive.
The size of the garage door can also affect its installation price. Standard (single-car) garage doors typically range from 8 feet wide x 7 feet tall to 10 feet wide x 8 feet tall. Two-car garage doors can be extremely large—18 feet wide by 8 feet tall—and tend to be more expensive to install.
Insulation is another factor to keep in mind. Although energy-efficient insulated garage doors tend to cost more than non-insulated models, they can save you money in the long run by helping you reduce heating and cooling costs and lower your energy bills.
Planning to add windows or anything else to your garage door? Windows, decorative hinges and handles, etc. can add to the overall cost of the door.
