There are so many things we use in our day-to-day lives that have expiration dates. Our garage doors are no different. As time wears on, a garage door’s lifespan slowly expires. A garage door’s lifespan can be increased through annual check-ups and regular servicing, but there will eventually come a time when you need to replace your garage door.
Whether your garage has reached its expiration date or has undergone damage to warrant a replacement, LawnStarter states that you should spend between $590 to $1,650 on a professional garage door replacement. The national average is $1,120, depending on garage size and type of garage door. Let’s examine how much it costs to replace your garage door.
What Does It Cost to Replace Your Garage Door?
According to LawnStarter, the typical price ranges for a garage door replacement are as follows:
- National average: $1,120
- Typical price range: $590 – $1,1650
- Extreme low end: $375
- Extreme high end: $4,450
When it comes time for homeowners to replace their garage doors, most will pay the typical price range with a professional garage door technician. This includes the cost of removing the old garage door and its hardware and installing everything brand-new.
You can expect to pay the low-end cost for a non-insulated, aluminum, or steel garage door without replacing the hardware and tracks. Insulation is highly valuable and recommended. Not replacing the garage door parts, especially after the garage door’s expiration, is not recommended.
On the other hand, homeowners who upgrade their garage door during replacement can expect to pay a high-end price. This is typically the case when homeowners choose to install a garage door made out of wood or glass. These garage door types are more expensive than standard garage doors.
The Cost to Replace Your Garage Door by Size
Chances are, when you need to replace your garage door, you’re not just replacing one garage door. If you have several cars, you might have two single-car garage doors, one single-car, one two-car, or any combination of garage doors. The garage door size that needs to be replaced is an essential factor in determining the cost.
Single-car garage doors are typically 7 to 10 feet wide and 7 to 8 feet high. The typical price range for replacing this garage door is about $500 to $2,500. This might seem like a wide margin, but this is because single-car garage doors come in many different materials and styles.
On the other hand, multi-car garages come in several different sizes and variations. If you have two cars, you might have two single-car garage doors or one two-car garage door about 16 to 24 feet wide. Replacing two single-car garage doors has a price range of about $1,100 to $4,700 while replacing one two-car garage door ranges from about $750 to $4,000.
Lastly, if you have a three-car garage door system, there are also individual price ranges. If you have three single-car garage doors, replacing all would cost about $1,600 to $7,000. Replacing one single-car and one two-car garage door costs about $1,300 to $6,400.
The Cost to Replace Your Garage Door by Type
Something to keep in mind when you replace your garage door is that exchanging the style of your current garage door for an updated look can be extremely beneficial in the long run. Choosing a garage door that simultaneously is aesthetically pleasing and fits in with your home and the surrounding neighborhood will boost your home’s curb appeal and can help you when you want to sell your home. However, remember that the type of garage door you choose, including how it functions, will affect the cost.
Here is a look at common garage door types and what you can expect them to cost:
Sectional Garage Door
- Typical cost: $480 – $1,770
Tilt-up Garage Door
- Typical cost: $480 – $1,530
Carriage House Garage Door
