How Much Do Garage Doors Cost?

When it comes to enhancing your home and improving the security of your property, buying garage doors is one of the more costly things you can do. There is, however, a huge range of garage doors available, meaning that the prices also vary. Tailoring your garage door choice to your budget can help when making the decision, but with so many door types and styles to choose from, where do you begin? In this article, we’ll show you what you can get for your money to make it easier for you to narrow down what you want when buying garage doors. Of course, the exact measurement of the garage door you want, the colour, handles, opening mechanism etc. will all affect the final cost. These prices are correct at the time of publishing (27/08/2015) and refer to the specified doors only.

The Garador Seymour is one of our grander-looking timber garage doors, which is perfect for older or listed properties. Solid red cedar is an excellent material for the construction of garage doors; it’s strong and lighter than some other hardwoods, yet it still packs a punch when it comes to security. Timber is naturally insulating and this particular wood is hardy against environmental factors. It won’t split, warp or sustain watermarks if it’s looked after properly. This includes regular treatment/staining of the wood. If you’re looking to buy a garage door with real class, then this door is for you.

The LPU M Ribbed Micrograin has a light and shadow effect finish, which gives it an original and attractive look. These doors look great on both modern and traditional homes. The addition of windows can help to create a bright and useable space in your garage.

This roller door is another up and coming garage door type. Roller garage doors are great for saving space and for making your home look smart. They’re also incredibly thermally efficient, as they’re made from insulated aluminium. Roller garage doors open by moving directly upwards and rolling around themselves in a cylinder at the top of the opening. When buying garage doors, it’s important to think about the space they’ll take up when open. If you don’t have a lot of room in your garage, then a roller door may be just the thing to suit your needs.

We’ve included a steel up & over door in a double size to give you an idea of the costs. Many people who have a double-width garage door tend to have it automated, which means that it needs to have a tracked opening mechanism. This ensures the door stays balanced and is easy to use. The panelled design of the Garador Cathedral is a popular choice, as it suits many different home styles. We’ve opted for a brilliant Ruby Red colour for this door example.
