Tips for Homeowners in the San Francisco Bay Area

Garage Door Installer

Picking the right garage door opener is the first step to problem-free operation. You may choose to install it yourself but without experience and the right tools, it can be a frustrating experience as well as a dangerous one. Professional installation of your garage door opener will allow for uninterrupted performance and safe operation.

If you really want to do it yourself, make sure you choose the appropriate opener first. Here are some quick tips to follow before you learn how to install a garage door opener:

  • Take a close look at the different options available to you. Your typical choices are belt drive garage door openers, screw drive garage door openers or those with a chain drive. Understand the pros and cons of each.
  • Match the opener to the type of garage door. Consider the layout of your home and your lifestyle needs. If you have rooms above the garage, for instance, you should pick one that offers quieter operation, like a screw drive garage door opener.
  • If you intend to install it yourself, read the instructions carefully and check to see that you have everything you need. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions. Reference the included diagrams at every stage of the installation to ensure you are doing it correctly.
  • Always turn off the power at the breaker box before working with an electrical circuit, and follow all safety procedures relevant to electrical work.
  • Make sure there are no pets or children around when you are doing this work.
