Its going to depend on the door make ;model ;area labor cost and the type of remote. The easiest way is just to get a price from a garage door company really. Look in the phone book.

Expect between $700 to 950. It depends on insulated VS non insulated and windows VS no windows. And you can buy a junky Chinese Walmart brand opener VS a quality one with a lifetime warranty.

Our neighbors just spent $1100 on a new insulated door. It's a very nice door, and probably at the high end of what they had available.
Get the phone book out and call a local company. What someone pays in a city 1000 miles away from you, really has nothing to do with what you might be charged.
Even BIg Macs have different prices in different cities.

I am having that same job done and have priced it out; most quotes for an insulated door with installation have run between $1000 and $1200. The opener is separate and will run another $400 for a remote opener with 2 remotes, installed.

A lot of garage door folks will not install an opener but are happy to recommend someone who can. It's such a scam.

Every garage door company in my area also installs openers. Kind of odd they don't.

Not sure how that is a scam though.

My thoughts exactly. I have never run across a garage door company that doesn't install door openers. (Unless the costumer is such a PITA when installing the doors themselves, then you tell them that so you don't have to deal even more with them.)

I have not found a single garage door installer who was willing to also install the opener. I did find a general contractor who knows how to do both though.
