Insulation is immensely important, more so if you have a detached garage. Even if your garage is attached to your house, a well-insulated garage door will help reduce your energy costs significantly. Almost 15 to 20%! This is the reason why owners of older homes are going for a garage door installation with newer insulated doors.

When looking for garage door insulation, check the R value - a unit that determines the capacity of the insulation. The higher the R value, the better the insulating properties will be.

FYI: Most homeowners with an attached garage choose a door with an R value of 12.

Generally, a garage door insulation costs $50 to $500 . It depends on the R value chosen.

Here are some of the factors that affect the overall cost of installing a garage door.

  • Garage door materials

The garage door material can have a huge impact on the overall installation cost. A homeowner spends about $600 to $4,000 or more depending on the type of material. Look at the table below for the average installations costs related to the different materials.

Garage door material Total installation cost
Wood door $1,400 to $7,000
Wood composite door $3,500 to $11,000
Faux wood door $600 to $4,000
Steel door $700 to $3,000
Aluminum door $500 to $2,000
Fiberglass door $400 to $4,000
Vinyl door $1,000 to $2,800

FYI: Custom-made solid wood garage doors (made of hemlock, cedar or mahogany) are the most expensive. Their prices can go as high as $10,000 .

  • Door type

The types of door (whether your garage will have a single, double, or triple door) also affect your total installation cost. Triple car garages usually have one single and one double door for the vehicles.

  • Door type

The types of door (whether your garage will have a single, double, or triple door) also affect your total installation cost. Triple car garages usually have one single and one double door for the vehicles.

You can expect to pay between $600 and $4,000 for the installation depending on the door type and whether the door is stock, semi-custom, or fully customized.

  • Door size

A one car garage door costs $600 to $2,000 (including labor and materials). It runs from 8 to 10 feet in width. A two car garage door, on the other hand, costs $800 to $4,000 or more . Most double bay units are 15 to 17 feet wide.

  • Door type

The types of door (whether your garage will have a single, double, or triple door) also affect your total installation cost. Triple car garages usually have one single and one double door for the vehicles.

  • Door style

A garage door can have different opening styles. For a single door up to 10 ft wide, here are your choices.

You could install a standard panel ( $300-$800 ), roll up ( $400-$1,500 ), glass roll up ( $700-$6,900 ), tilt up ( $500-$1,200 ), French ( $2,000-$5,500 ), or a carriage house style door ( $1,000-$10,000 ). A customized walkthrough door will have a typical range of $700 to $5,000 or more.

  • Labor costs

A garage door installation pricing for labor ranges between $200 and $500 per door. This price range doesn-t include the material cost.

Of course, the labor costs will depend on the complexity of the services needed. For instance, if you bring in an electrician to wire up a new garage door opener, that will definitely increase your renovation cost.

Installing a garage door is not a simple DIY project. It-s definitely best to hire a professional for the job. A shoddy installation could also lead to expensive repairs and maintenance down the road. A professionally installed door, on the other hand, will add immense value to your house along with curb appeal.

  • Other factors that affect the prices

You must factor in the cost of adding new tracks, springs, brackets, or metal cables. Keep in mind that an automatic garage door opener will typically cost you $150 to $300 installed.

Moreover, your zip code and how your house is designed will also affect your total cost of installation. Add-on safety features such as pinch or tamper resistance (to keep you or your children-s fingers from getting caught in the door) will cost extra.

It-s important to plan your garage door installation well in advance. Here are some tips to make the process easy and quick:

  • Set a realistic home remodeling budget. Experts advise adding 20% extra to your existing budget to accommodate any surprise costs.
  • Check your local building code for any permit requirements. If you-re changing any structural parts of the garage or installing new electrical, you-ll need permits.
  • Consult homeowners associations before choosing your garage door materials and designs. They may have strict regulations and requirements.
  • Work only with expert garage door contractors. A neat installation will add to the beauty and value of your home.
  • Ensure that the type of door and material you select complement the style of your house.
  • Opt for door insulation with doors having higher R value. It will increase the energy efficiency of your home significantly.
  • If you live in a high wind or hurricane-prone area, make sure your new garage door is able to withstand the elements and has a built-in passive reinforcement system.
  • Know that it will take 4 to 7 hours to install a new garage door.
  • Be sure to get a warranty or guarantee from your contractor.
  • Get a written contract from your contractor. The document should detail the complete schedule and payment details.

These steps will help you avoid unexpected hassles and issues and make your garage door installation project smooth.
