This is Bill Mcintosh. I’ve been a garage door installer for 4 years now. I wanted to share with you some buying tips for garage doors.
Many homeowners not only have a two-car garage attached to their home, but also add a second, detached garage to store their recreational vehicle, boat, motorcycle or lawn equipment. With at least two, and possibly four or more garage doors to purchase, the homeowner will be looking for the best deal out there.
The price of a garage door is dependent on the size and the quality. It is possible to purchase a garage door for less than $500.00, but it will not be of the best quality and may not perform well over the course of several years. Most homeowners will purchase doors of a higher quality knowing they will have fewer problems in the future. After adding the cost of a high quality opener and professional installation, fitting a two-car garage with doors can easily cost $2,000.00 or more. Garageresource.org has garage door prices online.

With a number of companies that specialize in selling and installing garage doors, property owners have a wide variety of garage door brands and styles to choose from. Most homeowners purchase their garage doors from a company that also installs them. These companies typically offer a warranty on their products, and also a guarantee on the continued performance of the doors for a minimum period of time after they have been installed.
A homeowner may choose to purchase garage doors and install them himself, but in doing so the guarantee may be nullified. The manufacturer may not honor any claims against the quality and performance of the doors if they are not installed by a trained technician.
Most widely recognized home improvement stores sell garage doors in several styles and sizes, and they will also have a listing of local professionals who are trained to install the doors. In addition to a wide selection of garage doors available to homeowners, there are also various models of garage door opener systems to choose from. The average cost of a good quality opener system purchased from a recognized retailer is about $250.00.
Since entry to most homes can be accessed through an attached garage, a good quality garage door is essential to the security of the home. The best choice for homeowners is typically the professional installation of garage doors purchased separately, as well as the professional installation of a dependable garage door opening system.
