What Does a Garage Door Installation Cost?



Garage doors are pretty amazing. They’re something most people take for granted in their everyday lives. Sure, one might use them every day and that’s understandable but think about how less secure a home would be and how much more difficult life would be without one.

For this reason, having a garage door installed is a must – but first, the million-dollar question: how much will it cost?

The answer is, if you go to the right garage door specialists: not that much!

The Garage Door Guys specialise in all types of garage doors and gates, across all types of budgets. Generally, garage doors range from most affordable to most expensive in this order:


  • Roller doors
  • Tilt doors
  • Panelift/sectional doors

Of course, that depends on size, material, colour, etc. For example, a custom-coloured hot pink roller door may set you back a bit more than a standard beige sectional door… and probably wouldn’t look that great anyway, just sayin’.


The size is another thing that determines how much your garage door will cost to install. Single garage doors cost less than double ones. Double doors cost less than triple doors. Triple doors cost less than… you get the picture.


Then, there’s the material your garage door is made from – steel, aluminium or timber. This is a big part of choosing a garage door as it brings out the best features of your home. While a steel roller door may be more affordable than a timber sectional door, it may not suit the design of your home as much. And while a timber door may suit your home better, it may not be as durable as a steel one. In short, there are a few things, other than the price, to consider when choosing which garage door to install in your home.

*Note: you can also have custom doors built for you if none of the traditional designs suits your taste. The Garage Door Guys are happy to work alongside you to create your dream garage door.


Now we come to installing your door. While DIY is an option, it’s certainly not the best one. There are a few important reasons to leave it to a specialist:

  • Every single aspect of the installation has to be 100% precise, or else your door won’t open and close smoothly, which could very likely damage your door. This could void warranties: a heartbreaking thing to experience.
  • Most doors are too heavy for you to be able to install it on your own. Even if you’re ripped and pump serious iron at the gym.
  • It’s not worth the risk of injuring yourself or installing incorrectly.

Hiring a professional for a few more bucks ensures that the job is done precisely, safely, quickly and headache-free. And at The Garage Door Guys, this is what you get. They offer affordable and reliable services in garage door installation, second to none.
