How Much Does a Garage Door Cost?

Larry Myers Garage Door Wood

Because garage doors don’t need to be replaced 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 give you a pretty good idea of the average cost of purchasing and installing a new garage door. The price of a garage door will depend on what kind of material, size, and style you select. Cost can range from as low as $200 to as high as $6,000. That said, we’ve outlined the general cost of some of the different materials available for your new or replacement garage door.

The pricing examples provided below assume that you are purchasing a 16-by-7 foot double door, which is a common size on many houses in Oregon and Washington.

STEEL

Steel is more durable and better insulated than aluminum, and it comes in a wide range of colors and styles. For better insulation you can add one or 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 $3,500.

WOOD

Wood garage doors offer an undeniably rustic and organic look to any house, and are often made from redwood, cedar, or cypress. Wood is moisture resistant and can be painted in any color. However, wood doors tend to require more 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 $4,000, depending on the type of wood.

SIMULATED 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 won’t rot, shrink, expand, split, or crack due to moisture, it provides decent insulation, and it can be painted like real wood. The average cost for simulated wood doors can be anywhere between $1,200 and $6,000.
