The pandemic has caused the prices of garage door materials to rise. One of the main reasons is because the materials are now in short supply and not just in Austin. Garage doors are necessary for many homeowners, and they are not cheap to install or replace. New garage door costs range anywhere from $500 to $2,000, depending on the size and style of the door.

So you’re wondering what causes such an increase in delivery times, and it’s pretty simple. COVID19 has produced new protocols for supply and manufacturing companies worldwide; These protocols required temporary shutdowns and many staff layoffs. Although production is at a standstill, thousands of orders pour in. With operations suspended and orders rising, it was only a short time before significant delays became an issue.
As the risk of exposure continues to grow, so does the number of employees required to self-quarantine. Whether hadling the garage door materials take substantial steps to keep their employees safe, a ripple effect has occurred, often wiping out entire departments. As manufacturers improve their processes to minimize delays, the pandemic results in other industries are already being felt.
With garage door materials finally being manufactured, the doors often have to sit for weeks in a warehouse waiting to be shipped due to a shortage in the shipping industry. It will lead to more delays. It’s not too bad, though. With an increase in the number of workers spending more time at home than ever before, there has been a significant rise in the home improvement industry with increased demand for home improvement products. While good for the industry, it’s not suitable for timelines. With demand outstripping supply, garage door companies are aggressively looking for door products with good delivery times that customers agree on.
Today with everything else with this pandemic, future timelines are unpredictable regarding the availability of various types of garage door materials. However, everyone is doing their best to reduce the effects of these increasingly challenging times.
