But let’s say you need a completely new garage door. How much is that going to cost?

You’ve decided to buy a new garage door. Great! You’ve already checked out our garage door buying guide; you’re well aware of how much value a new garage door adds to the home; and you know all about garage door installation — both residential and commercial.

So how much is a new garage door going to cost?

Some of you may be planning a garage addition. If so, the costs can range from several thousand dollars to more than $15,000.

For most homeowners, though, all that’s required is to install a brand-new garage door on an existing garage. The cost for this type of service is variable, depending on size, material — for example, a wood or steel garage door? — and style (lighting, windows, etc.). The price can also be affected by installation time and maintenance intervals over the life of the garage door.

Breaking Down the Cost of a New Garage Door

According to the National Association of the Remodeling Industry, garage door installation (minus an opener) typically costs on average about $2,300.

Research and discussions with experts reveal that the price of a single-car garage door can range from $1,000 to $5,000 (installed). Of course, it depends a great deal on the type, quality and sophistication of the garage door itself.

It used to be that most garage doors were made — generally speaking — of the same kinds of materials. Today, however, there are many different styles of garage doors, as well as a variety of details that can alter the price, including the addition of windows, insulation, different colors, panels and materials, plus the height of the door itself.
