Making the decision to replace a garage door is a big one. Firstly, you need to choose the right style of door for your home and your needs, but secondly, you need to consider the cost. Some garage doors cost considerably more than others, making it difficult to pinpoint a realistic budget that doesn’t compromise on style.

What is the Cost of Replacing a Garage Door?

Whether you’re moving into a new property and trying to put your own stamp on it, or if you’re simply upgrading your existing property in line with changing tastes, replacing an old garage door is a good place to start. This is especially true if it’s been over a decade since it was last done. 

That being said, there are a number of obvious costs associated with the process, with the door itself only being the very start. If you’re changing the style of garage door, the mechanisms will need to be replaced, too, and this can bump up the cost overall. For this reason, there is no definitive answer to the cost of replacing a garage door.

How are Garage Doors Replaced?

Generally speaking, it should take no longer than one day to replace your garage door. Once you have a design picked and a professional on hand to do it for you, the first step is to remove the old door and any relevant mechanisms if they’re not applicable to the new door or simply too old. 

After this, the new door can be put on. As mentioned, if you’re changing to a new style of door with different mechanisms to the last, it will take longer to replace because a whole new system needs to be put in place. If this isn’t the case, your door could be finished within two hours.

Cost  Considerations of a Garage Door

In terms of a cost breakdown, there are several factors that will influence the overall price. These include: 

On top of this, you’ll need to get a professional in to complete the garage door installation process. Garage doors can be dangerous when it comes to installation and maintenance because of the mechanisms and weight of the door, so it’s best to leave it to the professionals.
