It finally happened. Your teenager finally broke the straw that broke the camel’s back. You’ve told her a million times that if she texts while driving, she will be grounded until she’s 80. Well, she did one better. She plowed through the garage door while text messaging. You’ll deal with her later. Right now, how much will it cost for a new garage door? MassGarage can answer that question.
The Door Itself
When it comes to new garage doors, the actual cost to purchase one varies broadly. You could get a brand-new, single-car garage door for as little as $200, or you might blow up your bank account with a top-of-the-line door well over $1,000. If you have multiple garage doors and you need to replace both, even though your teen only wiped out one, you might be looking at $4,000 or more.
Factors to Consider
There are many factors that can reduce or increase the amount you pay for your garage door, and the first thing that will affect the invoice’s bottom line is material. If you’re looking to save money, a steel garage door will be the least expensive. If you’d like to one-up your neighbors, a custom wood door is just the ticket, and it’s also the most costly. You can also choose a wood composite or vinyl garage door.
The next thing that will either reduce or up the price is style. There are four styles from which to choose, and they are: roll-up, sliding, swing out and swing up. Roll-up garage doors are the most common; sliding doors are the most fashionable. Since you have to replace your door, why not choose what you want, even if it’s an upgrade. This unexpected renovation could boost the value of your home.
Finally, it’s always wise to take the installation cost into account. According to Home Advisor, on average, it costs anywhere from $734 to $1,462 to install a new garage door and this includes the door itself. Obviously, if you select a set of $4,000-garage-doors or a custom design, you’re probably looking at a much higher bill, but again, the boost in your home’s equity might be worth it in the end.
