Garage Door Replacement Cost

A new garage door is one of the best investments you can make in your home, and garage door replacement cost can vary depending on the size, weight, or style of your garage door – or even the region you live in.

At Precision, new door installations come with an industry-leading warranty and free haul away of the old door.

What Affects Garage Door Replacement Cost?

Your door size is one of the biggest variables affecting garage door replacement cost. Garage doors typically come in one, two, or three-car options.

  • One-car doors cost less as they use less material.
  • Two-car options can be installed as one single double door or two separate doors.
  • For three-car setups, you can choose one single door and one double door or three separate doors. Going for double doors can be a more budget-friendly choice.


Your door’s material is also an important decision. Popular garage door materials include:

  • Steel – Durable, affordable, and low-maintenance, steel doors are a popular choice.
  • Wood – Offers a classic and natural look but is typically more expensive and high-maintenance.
  • Faux Wood – A low-maintenance, budget-friendly alternative to natural wood doors.
  • Aluminum – Affordable, lightweight and corrosion-resistant, matches well with modern homes.
  • Vinyl – Resistant to dents and rust, with minimal maintenance required.


When choosing a new door, you’ll be able to add embellishments and other custom details that may influence the total price. These can include:

  • Decorative hardware like handles, hinges, and clavos
  • Window inserts with various designs and types of glass
  • Paint-matching services that allow you to match a precise color on your home
  • Various garage door insulation options

If you aren’t sure where to start, we can help! At Precision, we offer free, in-person new door estimates with experts who can help you choose the best garage door replacement option for your home and budget.

Springs, Cables, and Other Components

When a garage door needs to be replaced, it’s common to replace other components like the opener, springs, and cables.

You’ll probably notice a few signs if other parts need to be replaced as well – things like visible damage on the panels, excessive noise, needing frequent repairs despite regular maintenance, or just general difficulty operating.

At Precision, we always perform a thorough, 25-point safety inspection before beginning any work. That way, we can provide an accurate quote and let you know about any potential replacement costs ahead of time.

Can I Lower My Garage Door Replacement Cost by DIYing It?

We strongly recommend relying on a professional garage door company to install your new door – and not just because we are one!

First, installing a new garage door requires specific experience, tools, and safety precautions to be done correctly. You should never attempt to replace old doors or components like springs or cables by yourself. The savings on labor costs are never worth the risk of damaging your home or getting hurt.

Second, if you install a new door yourself and it’s not done correctly, you’re on the hook for any repairs.

When you work with a reputable garage door company, your new door should also be protected by a warranty. At Precision, we back up our new doors with an unbeatable warranty and include a free haul away of your old door. And, in the off chance anything goes wrong with your door after we install it, it’s our responsibility to fix it.
