If you’re in the market for a new garage door, one of your top concerns may be the price. That’s understandable, as we all look for ways to save money where we can. While it’s usually true that quality is worth the higher cost and you truly get what you pay for, you can get a beautiful garage door that is on the more affordable end of the spectrum!
There are various factors that affect the cost of a garage door, including:
While your dream home may include a fancy wood garage door, if you want a cheaper option, we suggest going for steel. Wood is one of the more expensive door materials—but the good news is, there are many faux wood doors that resemble real wood if you prefer that look. These steel garage doors look like wood doors but without the high price tag (and maintenance)!
Insulation also makes a difference when it comes to the price of a garage door. A single-layer (pan) garage door, typically made of steel with no insulation, costs less than an insulated door. A triple-layer (sandwich) door is much more energy-efficient but also tends to be more expensive.
In general, a smaller, one-car garage door will cost less than a large door. There are different widths and heights and as the door gets bigger, more material will be used, which can increase the price. Keep in mind, however, that just because a garage door is twice as big does not mean it costs twice as much!
Of course, options like windows, custom colors, decorative hinges, etc. can also add on to the overall price.
What Are the Most Affordable Types of Garage Doors?
If price is your number one priority, a single-layer steel garage door without any windows or decorative hardware may be your best option. However, with an insulated garage door, you can maximize the energy efficiency of your home and enjoy the benefits of more long-term savings. Whatever your preference, we have a high-quality, beautiful garage door to meet your needs and aesthetic tastes.
