Today’s seemingly never-ending supply chain issues can make shopping for garage doors a frustrating experience. Disruptions have made garage doors, parts, and materials difficult for garage door companies and consumers to obtain. Comparing garage door pricing may not be the most effective way to evaluate your new garage door purchase. Our garage door sales team offers the following advice to control costs and minimize shipping delays on new garage doors.
Garage door styles that are in short supply or on backorder cost more and take longer to obtain. Choosing from garage doors that are in stock and ready to ship offers a more affordable option and reduces the likelihood of frustrating shipping delays.

Base-model “cookie cutter” garage doors cost less and are easier to obtain than ornate or custom ones. Specialty sizes and designs, such as high-lift doors, are harder to secure. For this reason, some homeowners are choosing to install inexpensive plain garage doors or modify high-lift structural designs while awaiting permanent replacements.
Never let overall cost tempt you into purchasing a low-quality door. Well-made garage doors last decades, while cheap doors require frequent replacement. When comparing garage door pricing, keep quality in mind to ensure a lasting investment. Be sure to consider:
