Garage Door Price Examples

Garage door price examples page

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

With advances in garage door types, materials, construction methods and operating mechanisms over the last 38 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.

Below are 9 examples to show how 1 single garage opening size can produce 9 very different 'drive through' measurements and 9 different prices.

If you want to take your own garage opening measurements and get a more accurate price from us email any images or drawings and details directly to enquiries@thegaragedoorcentre.co.uk. 

The aperture size most encountered on brick built single garage openings in the UK is 2290mm wide (approx. 7’6”) x 2250mm high (approx. 7’4 3/4”). We assume for all the examples below that there is sufficient headroom and sideroom internally. The example prices are based on removing the old door and mechanism, disposing from site, the installation of a new fixing sub frame when required, the garage door panels and all mechanism and remote control electric operator where included. We have assumed average times on site and no major 'making good' work.

This is one of the most contested and price driven garage door products in the UK. There are many bold headline 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, electric roller shutter doors, with a double skinned, foam filled 'insulated' slat are in the region of £1,500 - £2,800 fitted 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. Don't just take our word for it!
