Garage Door Installation Cost

These prices are for a two-car garage with standard door sizes.

Do you have 1 “double [car] door”, or 2 “single [car] doors?” (Or some combination.)

1 Double– Prices range from $1,790 – $3,082. That is a decent size range, but it covers about 80% of the double size residential garage doors that we install.

2 Singles– Prices range from $990 – $1,619 per door.  This is a decent price range and covers about 80% of the single size residential garage doors that we install.  

What does this garage door cost price range include? The above price range includes the most popular options for both basic and much higher quality doors. It includes windows, insulation, steel backing and design options (such as if you want carriage style garage doors).

Taking into account the hot, non-air-conditioned garages in southern climates, we have established particular insulation levels in our range. This full door kit also applies to 7 foot tall doors and takes into consideration their standard sizes; single doors usually measure 8 or 9 feet wide by 7 feet tall while double ones are 16 or 18 feet wide and still stand at a height of seven feet.

Our competitively priced garage door cost package includes all necessary components for a successful new construction installation, such as garage door springs, tracks, hardware, and seals. In addition to your convenience in having them installed by us, we will also take care of the disposal of any old materials that need replacing!

So, what does the cost of garage doors not include? Of course, it excludes sales tax. Depending on the county you’re in, that tax rate could vary from 6-8%, and even inside Atlanta city limits they tend to take a cut of your profits too!

The range we offer includes the most acclaimed style options, but it does not include custom door designs. If you’re looking for more of an architectural style with words like solid wood, overlay and faux finish, then be aware that there might be a considerable price increase.

Although we provide stylish doors, keep in mind that they can be more expensive and require higher maintenance. Fortunately, our garage door price list includes quality high-end options. You may opt to spend a little extra for an exquisite look; however most of these entries are constructed with similar base structures included in the cost-effective alternatives.

Custom Garage Door Prices

The rates include normal door hardware and assume a conventional installation. Closing Time Garage Door can’t account for every conceivable roadblock, yet issues like oversized seals (in case your slab has an inclination) or unique tracks to counter clearance and “low head-room” (ceiling height) are included in the price.

While the majority of homes are fitted with 7-foot tall doors, a significant portion of homes feature 8 feet high models. If you suspect your door might be even taller than that, add an extra 10 to 15% to the garage door cost. It’s relatively uncommon for sizes to exceed eight feet in height since this is usually done intentionally.

We strive to avoid expensive additions that would add up quickly, but in some cases specialty products are required for a dependable garage door installation. Nonetheless, we understand that no one likes surcharges and do our best not to turn to them unnecessarily.

By considering your budget, you can determine what features to prioritize in the door. Within the range listed above is a rundown of typical options; the more items on that list you want for your doorway, the pricier it will be. Let’s say adding windows is fairly affordable but if you also desire thick steel backing insulation then this cost may climb up toward the top end of your price bracket.

The actual door size will also affect your cost, but more so on the two car garage doors than on your singles. I think this guide will be helpful but if you don’t have a two car garage, you will need to adjust this guide to your situation.

The size of the door, particularly for double garage doors, can affect your overall garage door cost. This guide should be useful but if you don’t have a two car garage, it would need to be modified accordingly to suit your needs.

Garage Door Openers

The other big thing is garage door opener costs. The most popular units we install are $600 to $850 for a much smoother system.

Those two systems are the best recommendation for reliability and general functionality, but if you are more interested in features and smart technology we would have some other recommendations.

Sometimes extra remotes or a keypad are requested on top.

Are you on the search for a reliable and functional garage door opener? Our four most popular systems are both within the $600-$850 range. And if you’re looking to further boost your setup with extra features or smart technology, our team has other options prepared for you. Of course, remotes or keypads can always be added as well – just let us know what else would make your system complete.
