For many homeowners, the garage door is the primary entry into the home. Daily use can be energy-intensive, raising and lowering the garage door, often more than once. So, when a new garage door is needed, homeowners should look for a product that is efficient, functional, and aesthetically pleasing. The good news is that installing a new garage door is not a sunk cost. Rather, most homeowners will recoup about 85% of their cost outlay through the equity value increase of their home.

General Installation Costs

With all of this in mind, how much does a new garage door cost to install? It depends on several factors. However, most homeowners can expect to pay anywhere between $1000 to $2,000. This includes the cost of the garage door, as well as any hardware and consumable materials. If the garage door opener needs to be replaced as well, then it will increase overall costs. The price can fluctuate a bit, depending on the chosen door, and the materials and features of the installation decided upon.

Installation Types

Garage doors consist of four main types. The installation of these various types will impact the price of the installation due to the expertise and tools required.

  • Single Roll-Up Sectional: One of the most common garage doors today, installation is approximately $1,000 give or take.
  • Single Tilt-Up: This old-timey style garage door is usually under $1000 to install.
  • Custom Roll-Up: Custom garage doors require more time to install. The cost can be as much as $1,200 to $2,000 roughly.
  • Custom Wood, Solid: High-end custom wooden garage doors are a gorgeous product, but require more time, effort, and expertise to properly install. This can drive the installation costs as high as $3,000.

Choosing a Garage Door

Although the price will fluctuate depending on the type of garage door you install, the important thing is to choose a door that will meet your needs. Consider the door material you prefer: wood, aluminum, steel, or vinyl. You should also consider insulation and the specific features of your garage door opener.
