Your garage door is the forefront of your home. It’s one of the first things people see when they are in front of your home. If you have an old, worn out garage door, it can ruin the whole aesthetic of your home. If your garage is outdated and the hardware is beginning to wear out, it can create a serious injury risk. If you’re in the market for a new garage door, it’s nice to know what options are available to you and depending on your budget, which one will work best for your current situation. Upgrading your garage door to a newer, safer model will not only increase curb appeal, but it will increase your home’s market value as well. AAA Action Garage Doors is here today to give you all the information you need about replacing your garage door.
Average Cost Garage Door Replacement
According to Home Advisor, the average cost to install a new garage door is between $729-$1452.00. This includes the price of the door, installation, labor, new tracks and new connectors, adhesives and fasteners. There are lower end options available, as well as higher end options to choose from. When it comes to garage door replacement, we strongly recommend you hire an experienced professional who has experience in this field. Garage doors are awkwardly heavy and can cause serious injury to you or others during the installation process. Balancing the door on the tracks and hinges requires finesse and expertise so that later on down the line, the door doesn’t malfunction and injure someone. It’s always safer to trust a professional with this home improvement project.

Garage Door Materials
Steel– This is the most affordable option available and the most commonly used for garage doors. They require very little maintenance over the years and are durable and simple to fix. You can customize the look of the door by painting or staining it to mimic a faux wood door. Steel doors are the most likely to rust and dent easily. Choosing a top-quality steel door with a 24-25- gauge steel will lower the risk of dents and rusting over the years.
Vinyl– Vinyl doors have become increasingly popular over the years. They are sturdy and dent resistant. They require very little maintenance and clean up easily with all the dirt we have here in Henderson. Many people prefer the look of vinyl doors over that of steel. Unfortunately, they are only available in limited colors and design options.
Wood– Wood doors are the Cadillac of the garage door world. The first ever garage doors were constructed using wood and they have been a timeless classic ever since. Wood doors are the heaviest and most expensive garage door option, but they stand up well to wear, won’t dent and provide the most insulation of any garage door on the market. You can customize these doors by adding windows, barn door aesthetics or various stains to suit your wants and needs. They come in cedar, hemlock or beautiful mahogany.
Wood Composite– Wood composite is a great, eco-friendly garage door option that gives you the look of a wooden door, using recycled materials! They are also much more affordable than wooden doors.
