Garage Door Motor
An automated garage door Motor is pretty standard for most homes in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. Garage door Motors typically last for seven to ten years of service. However, they may need to be changed out if the opener motor malfunctions for any reason or if the homeowner simply wants an upgrade. Garage-door opener systems will generally cost between $250 and $350, depending on the device’s level of sophistication. Labor costs can vary depending on your situation or circumstances, but the average cost to install a garage door opener runs from $200 to $450.
Professional Garage Door Motor Installation
The time required for installation of a garage door Motor is typically 2 to three hours. However, your installation may require more or less time depending on the situation’s complexity. If you are replacing an existing system, much of your existing hardware can usually be reused for the new system. This obviously cuts down on installation time! If your system is a brand-new installation that could require stud-finding, wiring, programming, etc. – this will require more time than a replacement.
Many garage door opener installations require some basic carpentry skills and electrical knowledge to install. Some of the tools required are fairly basic hand tools that most homeowners will have on hand. However, if you do not have the tools or do not feel equipped to do some basic carpentry, a DIY installation may not be your best option. Also, some garage door opener installations are two-person jobs. Lifting (<40lbs.) and maneuvering may be involved to align and mount the unit on the ceiling correctly.
In some homes, the garage door may require adjustments before an opener can be safely installed. A garage door should operate smoothly when manually operated. Otherwise, it can be a problem down the road because it may put extra strain on the operator and become unreliable.
