What’s the Bottom Line?
Understandably, the most frequent garage door question we get is, “how much is this going to cost?” The answer to this question is that it really depends. We customize every door to suit the need of the home and the budget of the customer.
Doors can range anywhere from $750 to $4,000, with $1,000 being the national average. This price range depends on many features like:
- what kind of opener you get
- what materials you choose
- level of insulation
- added features
- And more
Should I Get Wood or Metal?
The materials of garage door you get will have a big impact on the rest of the process. Wood doors are heavier and require different openers and hardware. They give you a rich warm look to your garage and provide a level of insulation all on their own. Wooden garage doors also hold up better against dings and dents.
Metal garage doors are less expensive on average and don’t rot over time like a wooden door will. You can customize the insulation level of a metal door to fit your need. They are also lighter and therefore allow you to go with lower grade parts for the opener system.
Do I Need Insulation?
A basic level of garage door insulation is always a good idea but becomes a must in areas with extreme climate. The hotter or colder your area is subject to get, the higher the level of insulation you need. This not only helps protect the contents of your garage but helps insulate the rest of your house as well.
How Can I Customize My Door?
Everyone has to choose the basics like material, style, and insulation level of their new garage door. If you’re interested in truly customizing your door, there are some great features you can look at. You can go high tech and get a wi-fi enabled opener that you can control from your phone.
