I'm looking to replace my old garage door. These garage door guys don't make it easy. They all want too much $$! I've read through several manufacturers' installation instructions. This is something I feel very comfortable doing myself. Choosing which manufacturer to go with is another matter. Just finding where to purchase a door directly has been a challenge. I finally found a door installer that would tell me where to get one. There is a large distributor of First United Doors, I can pick up a garage door 6 days a week, for $470. There is Overhead Door, 6 days a week pickup, $435. Then, I can order a CHI door, 2 weeks delivery, $455. Clopay, Wayne Dalton, and Amarr will sell me a garage door, all in the $600-$700 range. Raynor is dealer only, $990 quote. First United has a lifetime warranty. The others have a 15-year warranty. All the same type of door, 25 gauge steel, raised panel, non-insulated, 15X7. I guess it comes down to what is available, how long I want to wait for delivery, and what I want to pay.

It’s not that hard to do. I did the 3 on my shop by myself they’re 10’ wide x 12’ tall. Have you priced them insulated. The cost isn’t that much, but it makes a difference in both temperature and noise. There’s not much difference between the manufacturers. Go on price and availability.
