How Much Does a Garage Door Cost?

Need to install a new garage and wondering about the price? We often hear that question—how much does a new garage door cost? We can’t give you just a single number because it’s not that simple of an answer!

Garage door prices are actually influenced by a number of different things, including regional conditions. Besides that, other factors that impact the cost of a new garage door include:

Material of the Door

This is one of the biggest factors that affect the price of a garage door. While wood doors are appealing to many because they can add unique character to your home’s exterior, they tend to be one of the most expensive kinds of garage doors to install.

Size of the Door

Do you have a single- or double-car garage? The size of the garage door can also affect its installation price. Standard (single-car) garage doors typically range from 8 feet wide x 7 feet tall to 10 feet wide x 8 feet tall. Two-car garage doors can be extremely large—18 feet wide by 8 feet tall—and tend to be more expensive to install.


Insulation is another thing to consider. Although energy-efficient insulated garage doors tend to cost more than non-insulated models, they can save you money in the long run by helping you cut your heating and cooling costs and reduce your energy bills!

Design Features

Planning to add windows or anything else to your garage door? Things like windows, paneling, decorative hinges and handles, etc. can add to the overall cost of the door.
