We have a 3 car garage and need to replace all 3 doors and the garage door openers for each. The garage doors are 8' 0" x 7' 0" (width x height)

They need to be insulated to keep the garage warm/cool but to also hold up against hockey pucks and soccer balls - dent resistant.

We prefer doors with windows so they would need to be Thermopane or other type of insulated windows.

The garage door openers should be belt driven.

I understand there are a few different materials to choose from as well as the level of insulation. Your advice towards which of the materials and options are the 'best bang for the buck' along with the average cost for each door, installed including the opener would be appreciated.

We did have someone come over to provide a quote. Their cheapest option was $7,500 and $13,200 was for their "higher end" product. Based on what I've found so far online, these numbers seem a little ridiculous.

We have also posted our project here on TrustedPros but I'm hoping to arm myself with as much information as possible before making a decision. I don't want to overpay but at the same time, don't want a garbage product so I'm hoping someone here can help.

Hi Max,

I'm from London so its a smaller market but we just installed a similar door with insulated windows with a grid in front of the window dividing it into 4 and an insulated door, chain drive for $1850.00

The door was painted almond with matching weather stripping. We didn't recap the door but that would likely be $200 per door.

If you're firing hockey pucks against it, you may want to wait until the kids move out!

Hey Max sounds like you have some hockey players in the making.

In terms of what your looking for and keep in mind as you stated prices can definitely range but let me give you an idea here.

Top of the line 2"thick foam injected insulated steel door they are less likely to dent but always a possibility. These cost $1200/door installed with windows of your choice an opener per door would cost $320 and thats for the lift master belt opener 8355.

Now if you wanted a higher end door. I would recommend the fiber glass doors and these are dent resistant but again always a possibility.

These ones will run you $2200/door plus your opener/door.

Hope this helps.
