I have noticed there aren't too many people who will tackle a Garage door install or replacement on their own. People pay good money for this service. It is something of a specialty within the construction industry. I know of someone who had their doors replaced (2 single doors side-by-side) for $2,000.00 I about vomited when he told me the cost. Do it yourself centers don't charge half the price for just the doors. I have thought of rebuilding my doors panels and replacing them myself. However, it is a project that could take a considerable amount of time & effort.

Too skimpy. Sorry. The job is nowhere near as easy as the few install types referenced here. I coulda used some serious advanced look at water problems, air infiltration, track alignment, motor stability. Maybe there is no such thing as an advanced look at garage doors....but the industry sure gets paid well for something.
