Frequently asked questions about garage door installation services

The cost of a garage door installation project can vary according to a number of factors. It may be more useful to understand the variables involved in pricing the installation, rather than get a ballpark estimate. Remember, for most home projects, it’s best to get written bids or estimates from at least three pros. Be sure each price quote includes dollar amounts for the different types of doors, installation fees, and the cost of wiring electronic garage door openers. A garage door installation project will cost more if you need to use an electrician’s services for wiring work. In addition to the door types, you should also take into consideration whether you want additional features like insulation, windows, or decorative framing in your garage door.

There are also other factors to take into consideration when determining the cost of a garage door installation. Some homeowners choose to install exterior lighting at the same time as the door installation because garage door companies often have electricians available to do that work at the same time. Additionally, your home’s location, whether you live in a rural or urban area, and the relative availability of qualified garage door installation pros can make a difference in the overall price. If you do your research and get three bids, you’re sure to find the right pro who can do your garage door installation at a reasonable price for your circumstances.

When a garage door operates properly, it’s easy to take it for granted. You’ll know it’s time to install a new garage door when it shows some easy-to-spot signs of wear and tear:

It may suddenly reverse directions when opening or closing, it may make odd noises, it may be slow to open, or it may start closing and opening on its own. If you notice track misalignment, warping, or weather wear, it’s time to look into having a new garage door installed.

It’s important to keep your garage door in good repair. Your garage door keeps your home and car safe. If your home has an entrance through the garage, keeping that door in top condition is also important to the overall safety of your home. A garage door that opens and closes properly saves energy, and having a new garage door installed can improve the curb appeal and overall value of your home.

When it comes to installing a garage door opener, the project could be more difficult than it may seem. Garage doors are heavy and difficult to move without proper equipment. An electrician may be required to wire the new garage door opener. The powerful cables and springs that operate the doors can be dangerous if handled incorrectly. Therefore, it may make sense to hire a professional for your garage door opener installation.

The cost of hiring a pro for a garage door opener installation can vary depending on the complexity of the installation and on the demands for pros in your area. But a professional garage door opener installation will likely be faster and more efficient than doing it yourself. A pro can perform the garage door opener installation safely by using the right equipment. Additionally, a garage door specialist should be properly insured so you won’t be liable for any mistakes made on the job.

Measuring a garage door is trickier than it may seem. In broad strokes, six different garage door measurements should be made:

  • Measure the width across the door you have in place, and the height of that same space.
  • You’ll need to measure what is called the “sideroom” which is the space beside your door. This would be the width to the left side of your garage door, and the width to the right side.
  • Next, measure the headroom and the backroom. The headroom is the space between the top of the garage door opening and the ceiling. To get the backroom measurement, measure the space from the top of the garage door toward the back of the wall.

Also, take into consideration that if you want to install an automatic garage door opener you may need additional headroom and/or backroom space. Because the exact measurement of a garage door are crucial to a successful installation, it may make sense to have a garage door installation pro take these measurements for you.

There are many factors to consider when buying a new garage door, and it may make sense to hire a garage door installation specialist to walk you through all the available options. Regardless of which type of garage door your select, be sure to obtain three written quotes or bids to make sure you’re paying a reasonable price for your new garage door and its installation.

First, decide what material you want your garage door to be made of. Wooden doors look great at first, but they require expensive ongoing maintenance. It’s possible to get the look of real wood without the hassle. Composites look like wood but they last longer. You might want to spend a bit more, too, to upgrade the insulation in the door. Look for the most powerful springs you can afford. If it’s within your budget, consider buying a new opener at the same time as the door. If you want a quiet door, look for polyurethane insulation and nylon rollers. When in doubt, seek the assistance of a qualified garage door installation pro to help you choose the best garage door for your needs.

It may be tempting to try to save money by installing your own garage door. But it turns out that a do-it-yourself garage door installation doesn’t usually make sense. First of all, garage doors have a large number of parts and are complex to put together. The powerful springs and coils that operate the garage door are heavy and can be dangerous if mishandled. Special tools and a great deal of strength are required to move the heavy door and springs during installation.

A pro can carry out a garage door installation safely and efficiently. They can haul your old door away, and offer tips on maintaining your garage door going forward. You may choose to have outdoor lighting installed at the same time as your garage door, because garage door companies often have electricians on site who could do the lighting installation as part of the overall deal. Furthermore, reputable garage door installation pros should be properly insured, and should offer a warranty on the door and on their labor for overall peace of mind.
