Why are garage doors so expensive? 

Garage doors are pricey, but they are worth the money. After all, they protect and secure your vehicles from the elements. 

As for why they’re so expensive, we blame the fact that so many materials are required to create a functional garage door. Not only do you need the door itself, but you also need tracks, springs, cables, and rollers. Automatic garages also need a door opener, which has many smaller parts. 

What’s more, supply problems have driven up the cost of everything from lumber to steel, impacting garage door prices in the process. Given how many moving parts and components are required to create a properly working garage door, the garage door supply chain has experienced more issues in recent years.
