To save money, some people endeavor to install the new door themselves. It is a job that sounds easier than it really is, because new automatic doors can weigh as much as 1000 pounds. Since it obviously is not a job for just one person, enlist the help of a friend when the time comes to do the installation. You will be glad for the help as you work down through the various steps you need to use to ensure a successful project. In a nutshell, these steps include: 1. Start by attaching the track to the drive unit containing the motor. 2. Connect the rest of the track sections together. 3. Attach the mounting bracket at the end of the track sections. 4. Install the mounting bracket to the wooden door jamb above the door. 5. Attach the motor to the beam. 6. Do an electrical feed between the motor and the wall switch. 7. Install the safety sensors to the bottom of the tracks. 8. Hook the door up to the opener. 9. Make sure that once you have finished the procedure, you check to make sure everything is tight and aligned properly.
Construction technology has come a long way in a short period of time. Doors more than 20 years old will be significantly less secure than newer models. Homeowners should weigh the costs of not replacing an old door when considering the cost of installing a new one. Garage doors represent a weak point for security systems; an easily breached or bypassed door means easy access to the garage and possibly even the home. Insulation technology has had an even greater impact on the heating and cooling efficiency of a home with a new garage door installed. Improper or inefficient insulation at the garage increases the energy costs of maintaining a home.
You need to do a little preliminary work before you will be ready to have a new door installed. You have to take the measurements of your current door or its opening in order to determine if you will be able to use a standard-sized replacement or if you will have to have your new door custom made. You also have to decide the type of material you would like the door to be made of with steel being the most durable and wood having the most pleasing aesthetic value. Of course, the amount you can afford to spend will dictate the style, material, and extras, like decorations or windows, that you will be able to purchase.
