Garage Door Materials

Garage door material has a great impact on cost. The price ranges below include the cost of installation.

  • Steel garage doors average between $600 and $2,000. This is the least expensive – and therefore most common – type of garage door material. However, it doesn’t offer much in the way of insulation. Garages with a steel door need insulation with an R-value of 12 or higher.
  • Vinyl garage doors average between $1,000 and $2,600. They cost a bit more than steel doors do, but they’re low-maintenance and dent-resistant, which makes them popular.
  • Wood garage doors average between $700 and $1,800. Cedar, mahogany, and hemlock are the most popular woods used to make garage doors
  • Wood composite garage doors average between $950 and $3,700. However, costs can exceed $10,000 for higher end models. These doors have grown in popularity because they’re made from recycled materials, which makes them the most eco-friendly garage door option.
  • Faux wood garage doors average between $1,000 and $4,000. These are growing in popularity as well, because they give you the look of wood without the upkeep of the real thing.

Customizing Your Garage Door

Like buying a car, you have a variety of options to customize your garage door. Each customization item adds to the overall price. But, it also elevates the appearance of your garage door, which is why many homeowners decide that it’s worth paying a little extra.

If you choose no customization options, that is known as a “stock” garage door. However, even today’s stock doors often let you choose color and panel options, although the selection is limited.

The most common customization items are:

  • Windows
  • Panels
  • Trim
  • Color

You can even choose a completely custom garage door. These usually offer the highest quality and best materials. Just expect to pay two to three times as much for your new garage door.

Hire a Professional

In the age of how-to videos, many homeowners prefer to handle simple repairs around the home themselves. However, replacing a garage door is not a simple repair. First, the door itself is extremely heavy. If installed incorrectly, it could cause serious damage to you, your family, and your property.

There could also be an issue with your tracks, the garage door springs and cables, and placement of the garage door opener. Even if you don’t call GT, for your own safety, we recommend hiring a professional to install your new garage door.
