Investing in a new garage door is an exciting time for the household. After all, it’s the first thing you see when you pull into your driveway, and a new garage door acts as an entire facelift for your home’s façade.

But with any investment comes budgeting. How much are you looking to invest in your garage door, and what do you need to know to understand the pricing behind it?

Well, today, The Garage Door Guys tell us just that. Here’s how to understand the cost of your new garage door and plan the perfect budget for it:

Style of door

The style of door you choose is one of the most important things to consider when budgeting for the cost of a new garage door. The main styles of garage doors, from most affordable to most expensive, are roller doors, sectional doors, tilt doors and custom-made doors.

If you’re on a tighter budget, then roller doors are a suitable option – the trade-off is that they won’t add as much value to your home as a tilt door or custom-made door. Sectional doors are a great middle-ground for medium budgets. They’re stylish and elegant, and there are options for all sorts of budgets.


The material you choose also contributes to the cost of a garage door. To plan a budget wisely, you need to think about which material you’re looking for in a garage door. Steel is a popular choice across all styles of garage door. It’s sturdy, reliable and when you choose Colorbond steel, you have the added benefit of rust-resistance and loads of colours to choose from.


Size is an inevitable factor which will influence your budget for your new garage door. Generally, double doors are always going to cost more than single doors. But don’t get too caught up on this one; if you need a double, then you need a double!


Also take extras into account when budgeting for a garage door. Things like cyclone-proofing, smart tech automatic openers and laser sensors are all extras which you might find absolutely essential, or not.

Retailer quality

This factor should never be compromised in order to squeeze everything into your budget. Choose a reputable garage door retailer who is known for high quality, Australian-made garage doors. Never sacrifice product quality when investing in a garage door!
