Your garage door is an engineering marvel. It’s the largest moving object in your home and it can be opened or closed with one-hand or the simple push of a button. It’s something you use every day, yet pay little attention to. If you’re like most people, you probably don’t even do regular maintenance on it. As a result, few people know the answer to the question “How much does a garage door costs?” or even “how long should a garage door last?”
How much does a garage door cost?
The answer of course depends on the type of door and the features you want to go with it. The least expensive doors start at a couple hundred dollars, while custom doors can be several thousand. The simple answer is that the average garage door used on most two-car garages is around $1000 to $1500. Add more insulation, windows or use wood, and the price will go up.
Determining the right garage door for your home is a lot like picking paint. It’s a personal decision that needs to fit your lifestyle, personality and budget. It’s also something you can’t take lightly because unlike paint, it’s not something that you can easily replace. And like paint, can improve the look of your home and make your house the pride of the neighborhood.
