Garage Door Price Examples

Garage door price examplesGarage Door Price Examples

Every day we get asked the same question – How much is a standard garage door?

With advances in garage door types, materials, construction methods and operating mechanisms over the last 15 years you can install a garage door to provide a lot more than just a basic steel panel in a timber frame.

The choice of garage doors now is enormous in the UK with manufacturers catering for insulated doors, vertically rising doors, horizontally sliding doors and even garage doors with smaller doors built in for easy pedestrian access.

Shown below are 10 examples to show how 1 garage opening size can produce 10 very different drivethrough measurements and 10 very different installed prices.

The example size is taken from the most frequently encountered single width brickwork size measured by our company over the last 26 years.

If you want to take your own garage opening measurements and get a more accurate price from us either go to our Interactive 3D Self-Survey Form or call us free on (0800) 525442

The brickwork opening size most encountered on single brick built garage openings is 2290mm wide (approx. 7’6”) x 2250mm high (approx. 7’4 3/4”). We assume for the examples below that there is sufficient headroom and sideroom internally

The garage door prices are based on removing the old garage door and mechanism and disposing from site and the installation of a new fixing sub frame when required, the garage door panels and operating mechanism, and remote control electric operator where included. We have assumed very average times on site and no major making good work.

This is one of the most contested price driven garage door products in the UK. There are many bold claims of 'electric roller shutter' doors for less than £1,000 but if you do enough research you will find out that pretty much all single sized roller shutter doors with a double skinned, foam filled 'insulated' slat are in the region of £1,400 - £2,000 from any reputable company and anything offered at less than £1,000 with installation has to be checked for quality of components, warranty, electric motor details, safety features and of course quality of installation and compliance of electrical components. When something looks like a bargain and involves electrical components you should be very careful. Dont just take our word for it!!
