Knowing what your project will cost before getting started is vital when you need a new double garage door. Understanding the various factors involved in installing this type of structure and deciding whether or not that price seems reasonable for someone who hasn’t done work like this yet can help ensure there aren’t any surprises once everything starts going up!
When installing a second garage door, it can be easy to determine what costs should come with it. Many factors will affect your installation cost, and before taking anything off-site for inspection, one must consider these to make an accurate estimate at home or work.
What kind of double doors?
For those on a budget, an aluminum or steel garage door can be installed for less than $400.
The cost is slightly higher for homeowners looking to spend some extra money and has their homes grade up in style with something more special like glass ($5K per door) or natural wood (3.2K per door) doors.
The garage door technician must meet safety codes for structurally sound installations with any garage door installation. In most cases of two doors being installed on one structure, safety will not be an issue, given that you need a header at least five feet wide and four inches thick to keep both parts supported safely under all conditions.
Different materials and pricing. Every garage door is priced based on your preferences. Also, prices vary by location.
Glass garage doors
Glass doors are the most expensive – no doubt. But the overall look will increase your home value for sure. On the other hand, everyone has different preferences for their houses. Still, most will agree that a new garage door is one of the best ways you can upgrade your existing style without any major renovations or financial investments in the process. Depending on your specifications, a glass garage door costs $2,500-$7,500.
Wood garage doors
Before saying Yes! There are wood-like door styles and real natural wood doors. The difference is in the price, look, and quality.
The average two-car garage door made of wood would cost about $6,600.
Faux Wood & Vinyl doors
Faux wood and vinyl doors are a more affordable way of making your garage stand out. These doors carry a starting price of around $1,800-$2,500 per door.
Aluminum garage doors
Aluminum double doors are popular for durability, looks, and long-term value. It is about half the weight of steel or iron doors. Aluminum has 50% more resistance to corrosion than steel (and that’s important, especially to the Los Angeles area). All this makes aluminum doors a great choice.
