If you're a homeowner in the area, you'll want your property to look and work at its best. That extends beyond your house and into the garage, and installing a quality garage door opener is important. Whether you're just building your garage and adding a brand new garage door, have recently had your old opener break down and are now replacing it, or just want to eliminate the loud racket that comes every time you open the door, replacing it is important. There are a few basic things you can expect when the time comes to install a new garage door opener.
• Brand isn't always as important as some people think. There are certain brands known for higher quality than others, but in most cases choosing between a Liftmaster or a Craftsman opener will really be a matter of personal preference more than anything else.
• The type of opener that you choose is much more important. Chain drive, belt drive, and screw drive are the three main options. You'll want to find the one that fits your budget and your needs the best. Screw drive is the quietest and most reliable, but will cost more. Chain drive is the most common and the cheapest, but also the most prone to needing repair and the loudest.
• Installation involves a good bit of skill. While the opener will usually be setup and ready to go, it may need to have minor adjustments made in order to work properly.
• Your installer will likely have to adjust the torsion spring to match the opener. This is another key reason that trusting the pros for installation is so important. Spring adjustment can actually be dangerous if done incorrectly, so it's better left to the pros.
If you're ready for a new garage door opener you'll want to take the time to choose the right one for your home and to find the best possible installation company you can. With those two elements in place you'll get an opener that will work perfectly for you.
