Have you ever considered installing a sectional garage door? Instead of being made up of just one panel, a sectional garage door is made up of separate sections that rise vertically, so you can avoid losing any driveway space in front of your garage. They also give extra room for wider vehicles like MPVs and four-by-fours.
In our sectional garage door price guide, we’ll take a look at exactly how much you can expect to pay for one.

|Double steel door - manual||£1,500||£225||£1,725|
|Double steel insulated door - manual||£2,000||£275||£2,275|
|Single steel door - electric||£1,000||£225||£1,225|

Sectional garage doors come in all sorts of materials, colours, finishes and sizes. So, naturally, the cost can vary quite a bit. Here are some considerations that can alter your sectional garage door price:
- Whether you choose a single or double door
- Whether your door is electric or manual
- Whether your door is insulated or not
- What material your door is made of
- What colours and finishes you choose
- Whether you want to add extra locks for additional security
When you’re choosing your garage door, it’s worth bearing in mind that insulated doors (known as double skinned) provide an additional level of security, as well as a warmer environment. So, these are often great choices for garages that are also used as offices or workshops.
Sectional garage doors price list
On average, sectional garage doors cost £1,725 including VAT and installation.
That said, the cost of the garage door itself can vary dramatically. You could see yourself paying anything from £750 to £2,000 for the garage door alone, depending on the factors we’ve mentioned above.
Sectional garage door cost of installation
While sectional garage door costs vary greatly, the cost of labour doesn’t vary much at all. You’re looking at around £200 to get a single, manual door installed (if we assume the door isn’t electric). At the other end of the scale, if you want to get a double, insulated electric door installed, you’ll still only pay around £275 for labour.
