How Much Does a Garage Door Cost?

Guide Update for 2020

So it’s finally come to that time.

Your garage door’s lasted you a (hopefully) long time, but now something’s come up; it just doesn’t work the way it used to anymore.

Maybe you’ve tried getting it repaired a few times, or maybe this is the first time an issue has come up, but either way, you’ve got to do something about this.

Could it be time to get yourself a new garage door?

It might be, but before you go saying your goodbyes, let’s talk about whether you need a replacement, or you can just get your current door fixed up all good as new.

When to Get Your Garage Door Repaired Vs. When To Get it Replaced

Many times, when people start to notice problems come up with their garage door, the first thought that comes to mind is the costs.

This is a reasonable reaction. A new garage door can be expensive, depending on the circumstances.

But often, you don’t need to go as far as a brand new replacement; here are a few of the reasons you might only need to get repair work done instead:

  • Slow opening or closing
  • A “heavy” feeling door
  • A door that suddenly stops opening or closing
  • A loud garage door

While these symptoms can be indicative of some larger problems, they can commonly be fixed without having to replace the entire door.

However, there are times when it’s best just to get the whole door replaced rather than trying to repair your current one.

For instance, if your garage door’s safety features aren’t up to date, it might be time to get a replacement. Many of the older doors don’t have the same safety features that the current garage doors have, which makes them more of a hazard than most people realize.Another case where it might be more cost-effective to get a new door is if your current one has multiple issues at the same time.

While one repair job will probably cost less than a new door, having multiple parts fixed can sometimes cost as much, or more, than it would to get a new one.

When trying to figure out which option would be more cost-effective, here are a few things to consider:

The Factors in Play


Garage doors come in lots of sizes, and the size will play a big factor in how much your door costs.

A single-wide garage door is going to be a bit less to purchase and then have installed than a double-wide would be, so keep that in mind when trying to estimate prices.


Another thing that will significantly affect the price of your door is the style and materials.

Want a roll-up door? It’s going to be a bit more than a tilt model would be.

If you want a custom wood door, you can expect it to cost more than a standard steel tilt-door as well.


Another factor to keep in mind is the opener, especially if this is going to be your first garage door.

While the opener’s price isn’t included with the garage door, you’ll still have to factor the price in if you need a new one installed you want your current one replaced.

Tips for picking the right door

Maximize your curb appeal: Make sure you’re picking a door that complements your home. One of the best parts of garage doors is that they can greatly increase your house’s value if you pick the right one.

Purchase a newer model: While it’s possible to retrofit the newer safety features onto an older door, most newer models come with them stock. This will reduce your chances of a garage door-related accident happening. Newer models also tend to be more energy efficient too!

When to get an insulated door: If your garage is a standalone building, and no one lives in it, you probably don’t have to worry about getting an insulated door.

But if the garage is a connected part of your home, your best bet is to get an insulated door to help with noise and climate control.
