Garage Door Motor Replacement
An automated garage door motor is pretty standard for most homes in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and generally last about seven to ten years. Whether you are needing a replacement or just wanting an upgrade, budgeting between $250-$350 will cover most of the system’s cost. Additional labor may run from $200 -$450 depending on factors that are unique to your device and situation.
How Long Does It Take To Install a New Garage Door Motor?
Installing a garage door motor typically takes two to three hours, but the installation time can fluctuate depending on the complexity of each situation. For example, if we are replacing an existing system, we get the benefit of utilizing much of the current hardware – shortening the overall installation time and hassle! However, new installations may require additional work such as stud-finding, wiring, or programming – adding extra time to the installation.
DIY Garage Door Motor Replacement
For homeowners who have the necessary tools and knowledge, a DIY installation of your garage door opener is an achievable task. However, basic carpentry skills as well as electrical knowledge may be required to ensure optimal performance from your new motor. In certain cases where heavier lifting (<40lbs) is required or two people are needed for alignment and mounting on the ceiling – it might be best not to attempt this project alone; enlisting professional technicians could ultimately save you time and effort!
To ensure a safe and reliable installation of your new garage door motor, homeowners should check that their garage door opens and closes smoothly when manually operated. Achieving this can prevent potential mechanical issues in the future by avoiding excessive strain on the operator.
