How Much Does a Garage Door Cost?

According to HomeGuide, a new garage door costs between $300 and $1,200 (CAD 402 and CAD 1,609) on average. These figures don't include labor and any additional materials.

What Factors Impact the Cost of a New Garage Door?

Understanding what factors impact the cost of garage door replacement can help you choose an option to suit your budget. Consider the following cost factors before choosing your new garage door:


As you might expect, the size of your garage door has a significant bearing on how much you'll pay. Single garage doors typically cost between $300 and $700 (CAD 402 and CAD 939), while double doors usually retail for about twice that.

Opening Mechanism

Manual garage doors are usually more affordable than electric models, with single doors typically costing between $250 and $900 (CAD 335 and CAD 1,207). Meanwhile, a similar-sized electric model with an automatic opener usually costs between $500 and $1,700 (CAD 671 and CAD 2,280).

The material used to make your garage door can also impact the cost. Aluminum garage doors are the most budget-friendly option, costing between $250 and $1,400 (CAD 335 and CAD 1,878) for a single door, and between $300 and $2,000 (CAD 402 and CAD 2,682) for a double door. Meanwhile, wooden garage doors are the most expensive, setting most homeowners back up to $4,000 (CAD 5,365) for a single door, and $8,000 (CAD 10,730) for a double door.

If you're looking for a reliable mid-range option, steel garage doors could be worth considering. Steel doors are highly durable and less prone to rust and warping than many other materials. Expect to spend between $250 and $2,500 (CAD 335 and CAD 3,353) on a single steel garage door and about twice as much on a double door.


An insulated garage door could be suitable if you live in a cold climate because it can increase your home's energy efficiency. However, these doors are costlier than non-insulated models, and they'll only work effectively if you also insulate the rest of your garage. Prices vary by material, manufacturer and R-value (insulation rating), but you should expect to spend $600 to $3,000 (CAD 805 to CAD 4,024) or more.
