FAQs

How much is an electric garage door?

When you think about installing an electric garage door, one thing that naturally comes to mind is that purchasing and fitting of an electric garage door would be an expensive luxury. Having a garage door controlled by a remote control will probably cost too much, right? Well, contrary to many beliefs, the average cost of an electric garage door in the UK isn’t as expensive or pricey as you would have earlier imagined it to be. Of course, the price of your new electric garage door depends on a wide variety of factors such as the type of garage you possess, its aperture, construction as well as the type of electric garage door you seek.

Electric garage door aren’t that expensive considering the protection and convenience they provide, making them a viable option that should be considered for your garage. In the UK, a steel up-and-over single garage door price ranges around £700 to £900 plus £150 to £250 installation fee. Whereas, a costly single timber, trackless overlap door can cost as much as £4,200 to £5000 with about £400 to £700 installation price. A double garage door will usually cost double the price to purchase with just a little increase in the cost of the fittings.

The convenience provided in using an electric garage door is one of the main reasons why most people would prefer fitting it in their house. Just the thought of arriving home and driving through the wall of your garage with just a click of a button and without having to leave the comfort of your vehicle can be very appealing. And also with a click of a button you can keep your garage safe and secure from any potential danger. At the end of the day, the convenience and other benefits that comes with an electric garage door largely outweighs the price involved.

How much do replacement garage doors cost?

This is one of the most important factors to consider when considering the replacement of your old garage door. However, the replacement cost of a garage door relies on a number of factors such as the type of the preferred garage door, the size of the area in which the door will be installed and lots more. To get a more accurate estimate of the replacement cost you also have to consider the cost of removing the old garage door and the mechanism, the price of disposing the old garage door from the premise, the cost of installing a new sub frame and a new door panel, cost of the new operating mechanism and modern locking installation as well as the cost of purchasing and installing the new garage door. Here, we are only going to look at the purchase and installation cost of the new asset.

Today, there are a wide range of garage doors to choose from such as sectional, rollers, up and down, side sliding ( round the corner) and side hinged. They also come with varying materials which plays a significant role in the cost of the item such as steel, timber, aluminium, PVC and more. Furthermore, several garage doors include the option of being controlled electronically.

Generally, garage doors will cost between £300 to £5000, and include a price with the range of £150 to £1000 for the ones that can be operated electronically. With that in mind, the remaining cost would be that of the professional installer and that should be between £150 to £250 a person per day. For the labour, you can expect the installation of your new garage door to be completed within 3 to 6 hours (although an electric or specialist door may take longer installation time than the conventional or manual ones).
