New Versus Used

Purchasing anything in used condition tends to result in sizeable savings but does come with quite the risk of lesser quality. Buying a used garage door can be a fine choice if the garage door is in excellent condition and was taken proper care of during its installation, use, and disassembly. If you aren’t certain about a previously used garage door, its best to pass and purchase a new one you can fully rely on.

There are thousands of garage doors to choose from with prices ranging based on each desire or need you may have. Garage doors come in all types of materials including wood, metals, and fiberglass. Depending on the metal material, your cost will vary. The size of your garage door will alter the cost slightly as well.


Installing a new garage door yourself will require a high skill level, several days, the help of a friend, and additional material costs. These material costs include but are not limited to a new garage door, trim, paint, tools, and possibly the cost of a hired hand if needed. If you want to avoid material cost, you can choose to hire a professional installation company to handle the entire process for you while ensuring perfect installation and safety. Material cost versus installation cost is a choice you’ll have to make based on how much you would like to spend. It’s best to receive a quote from your garage door installation company to accurately determine your cost savings on either side.

Installation Cost

The cost of installation will vary between different companies but it is well worth it to guarantee your new garage door is installed properly and quickly. Hiring a professional gives you peace of mind that your garage door will be installed without delay, by highly qualified technicians, and with the best tools and materials available. Avoiding the headache of installing a garage door on your own and without experience makes your choice easy.
