    Default Gargage Service Door

    My husband and I are currently in the process of purchasing a new home in California. As an upgrade we are able to add a service door in the garage- which means we need to pay an extra $1666 for this door or we donít get one. This is my first home and I am not too familiar with the codes. However isnít there a code that requires there to be a door that leads to the outside other then the garage door in case of an emergency? Please help.

    No, there isn't. A service door is optional.

    Don't know what the Codes are in CA or prices. However, $1666. for a service door install would be considered a rip-off around here.
    Typical garage service door runs $200-400 depending at a big box store. Obviously you could spend a lot more. On a new construction, install would take a good carpenter less than 2 hours. On a rehab/retrofit less than 4 hours.

    I got the impression that this was new construction. Any change to the plans will cost much more than the cost of the raw materials.
