You likely open and close your garage door several times a day without giving it much thought, but you certainly want it to work correctly every time you do. Whether you’re building a new house or looking to upgrade your current residence, a new garage door can provide curb appeal for you and your family to enjoy while contributing to the overall value of your home.

For many customers, the look of their new garage door and their budget are equal factors in determining which garage door to choose. Clopay prides itself on offering garage door options that fit any budget while still providing craftsmanship and quality materials. The price of Clopay garage doors ranges from $300 to $4,000. Ideal garage doors aim to transform the look of homes with doors that cost as little as $200, while the higher end of the price range may be anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000.

Garage doors made from aluminum or steel vary in initial costs but are designed to last and withstand the punishing elements of sun and weather without needing much maintenance. A natural wood garage door can sometimes require additional care throughout its life, depending on the exposure of your home. Other features, materials, width, and height all contribute to the cost of your new garage door.
