Custom glass and wood varieties can exceed $10,000 each. Glass garage doors, also known as full view, contemporary or commercial glass, come in a wide range of materials, finishes, sizes and a few designs – all of which affect the price.

This guide covers only the price of the doors, not the labor costs or other considerations for putting one in your home. Garage door installation costs run $700 to $1,500 for a typical project. This guide covers the prices on full view types with glass from floor to ceiling, not traditional styles with only a few small windows.

Glass Overhead Doors Price by Type

You can expect to pay anywhere from $1,000 to $10,000 for a glass overhead door, depending on the type you choose. The large range of prices comes mainly from the size. Reasonably, you can expect to pay double for a two car door 18 feet wide as you would a 9 foot wide one.

Materials sometimes play a role in custom and high end designs that incorporate wood, aluminum and wrought iron, but most modern styles are mostly glass with aluminum frames and multiple finishes.

Insulated Glass Garage Doors Cost

Adding 1/2 inch insulated glass to your garage door costs $800 to $2,300 more than 1/8 or 3/16 tempered glass. While adding insulated glass panels might help reduce energy loss, they’ll never match the same energy efficiency as an insulated steel or wood type. Use insulated glass in all living areas.

Frosted Glass Garage Door Cost

You might pay $200 to $500 more for a frosted glass door. However, most companies don’t charge extra for tinted, frosted or opaque glass. You might choose to tint for hotter climates while frosted and opaque versions are great for both privacy and security.

Modern Glass Garage Door Price by Style

Depending on style, you’ll pay anywhere from $1,000 to $4,800 on average for modern glass garage doors. Some custom modern styles exceed $10,000. Regardless of the style you go with, the price depends more heavily on the materials and size. Style has more do with interior and exterior aesthetics. You’ll want to match it to your home’s design.

Swing Up Doors

Swing up doors can range from $1,500 to $10,000 or more for custom installations. Off the shelf swing up styles come in one large panel or a bifold design. They allow the door to either swing up entirely as one unit into the structure or remain protruding to function as an awning.

Custom hydraulic commercial swing up and bifold doors come in well over $20,000 but add an architectural, design and functional element to any home.
