Wood Garage Doors Can Be Affordable
There are many garage doors that will cost you upwards of a few thousand dollars; however, there are many options to obtain that wood door you desire for under a $1,000.
Wood garage doors vary in cost. They come assembled completely custom, or they can be assembled right in your driveway. Custom doors can run upwards of $4,000 while doors assembled in your driveway can be as little as $500.
Tilt-Up Wood Garage Door
These doors can be constructed in your driveway and are normally not comprised of solid wood; more like paneling. Many of my customers love the idea of a solid wood door but they are not always able to afford a price tag of $4,000. A tilt up wood door is very affordable and can give the exterior of your home a real wood feel.
The assembly of these doors begins with applying an outer shell of plywood to a frame. Typically, it is comprised of a Douglas fir wood type. Using a siding that matches your home’s exterior is also an option.
Through this process, you will end up with an affordable tilt-up wood garage door that will last.
Estimated cost between $700 – $1,000
Roll Up Wood Garage Door
Panel garage doors can be assembled on location, or by the manufacturer. You can expect either, a 3D raised panel or panels that will be recessed.
Popular panels are manufactured by brands like Cladwood and Masonite. These manufacturers produce paneling of a high quality and give a true wood door look. You can expect to pay about $1,000 for an assembly like this. The panels are normally warrantied for up to 20 years. However, the door itself normally only has a warranty of about 12 – 24 months.
Estimated cost between $800 – $1,200
Real Wood Garage Door
If you’re in the market for something that is developed of pure wood, you can expect to be in the $2,000 range. These types of wood doors can be made of Ponderosa Pine to Redwood or even Cedar.
Keep in mind that that the use of these types of wood will make the garage door heavier, therefore, it will require a garage door opener that will accommodate.
Estimated cost between $1800 – $2200
About Wood Doors
Always remember, a wood door will provide you with a very classy and stylish look, however, you’ll need to take care of it.
Wood garage doors can last upwards of 10 years plus, but they require maintenance. Many people look this over when choosing to install a wood door. It’s evident by just driving through neighborhoods and noticing the condition of some of the wooden garage doors. I was driving in a neighborhood today in Scottsdale and noticed a wood door that could use some immediate TLC.
So how can you avoid your new wood garage door from looking sad?
A repaint or refinishing job is something you can do on your own. I tell my customers to do this about once every few years. Additionally, wood expands, it can contract or warp and begin to crack. You can take care of your garage door by treating it the same as you would a piece of wood furniture.
