Garage Door Installation: Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

FAQs Garage Door Installation

The answer is a resounding yes. Garage door installation is a complex process that requires precise measurements, heavy lifting, and specialised tools. By hiring professionals like Affordable Openings, you eliminate the risks associated with DIY installation, including personal injury and improper installation that could lead to future malfunctions. Our experienced team ensures the installation is done safely and correctly, saving you time and potential headaches down the line.

When selecting a garage door, you should consider its material, style, insulation, and security features. The material (such as steel, wood, or aluminium) will influence the door’s durability and appearance. The style should complement your home’s aesthetic, and insulation is important for energy efficiency, especially in regions with extreme weather. Finally, consider security features like automatic reversal and rolling-code technology to ensure the safety of your property.

While installation times can vary based on the type of door and specific site conditions, a typical garage door installation by the Affordable Openings’ team can take anywhere between 3 to 6 hours. Factors such as removing the old door or dealing with structural issues can extend this timeframe.

If your garage door is making excessive noise, sagging in sections, or frequently breaking down, it might be time for a replacement. Other signs can include old age (most doors last 15-30 years), slow response time, and increased energy bills, which could indicate poor insulation.

Preparing your garage for door installation includes steps like clearing the area around your garage door and ensuring there are proper electrical connections for the garage door opener. Remove any objects that could obstruct the installation process and ensure that the garage’s structural integrity can support the new door.

The choice of a garage door opener depends on your specific needs. Chain drive openers are durable and affordable but can be noisy, making them a better fit for detached garages. Belt drive openers operate more quietly and smoothly, though they are a bit more expensive. We at Affordable Openings can help you choose the right opener for your garage door based on your requirements.

Regular maintenance is key to a long-lasting garage door. This includes regular lubrication of moving parts, visual inspections for wear and tear, and adjusting spring tension as needed. Regular servicing by Affordable Openings can help identify and fix potential issues before they escalate, saving you from costly repairs or replacement.

While we recommend leaving the installation to professionals, if you’re present during the process, make sure to maintain a safe distance, as parts under tension can cause injury if mishandled. For the professionals, safety measures include disconnecting power, using proper tools and safety equipment, and having an assistant during the installation. At Affordable Openings, safety is our top priority during all our installations.
