Asking how much a garage door costs is a bit like asking how much a car costs. You could buy a car off Gumtree for 500 bucks, but the chances are the motor will blow on the way back home to your place. You could also buy a Ferrari for a little bit more than 500 bucks, but that may not be the best financial decision. In other words, the cost of a garage door in Australia depends on a couple of different factors. Let’s take a look at some of them below.
How big is your garage? Do you need a single door, a double door, or have you done really well in crypto-currency investment and need a lot more? The size of your garage and the number of doors will influence the total cost, no matter what style or material you choose or whether you choose insulated or non-insulated.
There’s a general hierarchy to go by when it comes to the price of each style of garage doors. Roller doors tend to be the least expensive, followed by sectional doors, followed by custom-built doors. If your heart is set on a custom-built door, that’s awesome and we’re happy for you – but be prepared to pay more than what you would for a standard roller or sectional door.
Just like with anything, the material influences how much a garage door costs. A hand-woven Persian silk dressing gown is always going to cost more than a polyester one. Materials commonly used in garage doors include steel, aluminium and timber. Steel tends to be the least expensive option, whereas the other two can be slightly pricier.
Insulated or non-insulated?
Insulated doors cost more but are worth it for the benefits. Better climate control, energy efficiency and noise reduction are all perks of buying an insulated garage door. However, insulation will impact the cost of buying a garage door in Australia, so it’s worth noting.
There are heaps of cool extras available in the modern garage door world. From apps that allow you to open and close your garage door remotely, to all kinds of added safety features, extras will influence the cost of your garage door.
