Because residential garage doors don’t need to be replaced very often, you may be totally lost when it comes to the cost of a new garage door. As a major provider of garage doors in Oregon and Washington, Larry Myers can help you estimate the average cost of purchasing and installing a new garage door.
Depending on the material, size, and style you select, the cost can range from as low as $750 to as high as $6,000. That said, we’ve outlined the general cost of some of the different materials available for your new garage door.
The pricing examples provided below assume that you are purchasing a 16-by-7-foot double door, which is a common garage door size on many houses in Oregon and Washington.
Steel garage doors comes in a wide range of colors and styles and are more durable and better insulated than aluminum. To improve garage door insulation you can add up to two additional layers or a 2-inch polyurethane layer, which will increase the upfront cost. Because of this level of customization, steel doors can range in cost from anywhere between $750 and $6,000.
Wood garage doors offer an undeniably rustic and organic look to any house. Often made from redwood, cedar, or cypress, wooden doors are moisture-resistant and can be painted in any color. However, they tend to require more garage door maintenance annually than other materials, so you may factor the long-term cost into your purchasing decision. The price can vary between $1,200 and +$10,000 depending on the type of wood.
Made from composite elements, simulated wood has the look and feel of real wood but is much more durable and requires far less maintenance. It provides decent insulation and can be painted like real wood, but it won’t rot, shrink, expand, split, or crack due to moisture. The average cost for simulated wood doors can be anywhere between $1,200 and +$10,000.
