Requirements for Garage door Motor Installations
For the garage door opener installation you need to have power available close by as well as enough overhead room to hang the motor. It is very important that the garage door is in good working order. This means that; firstly you should be able to open and close it using only one hand; secondly, the spring tension is correct; thirdly, the door runs smoothly and finally, all parts are secure and in a good condition. Any parts that are worn down or badly rusted must be replaced. Most problems experienced with garage door operation are because of the door itself rather than the automatic garage opener. It is important to remember that installing a garage door opener does not correct problems with the door.
We understand how important it is for you to have a perfectly working garage door opener. On the one side it is the convenience of giving you easy and effortless access to your property. But most importantly it impacts your safety and security.

We install garage door motors that also have a back-up battery so that you will still have a working automatic garage door, even when there is a power outage. An electric garage door ensures both your security and your comfort.
The battery back-up feature that the new openers have enables the garage door motor to operate even when there is no power. The battery back-up is designed to cater for a set number of opening and closing cycles e.g. 10. The actual number of operations will depend on the weight of the door and the battery reserve. During lengthy power outages the battery will run down and may need to be replaced.
When you do the garage door motor installation, what does the garage door service include?
If the door is not functioning properly and is not in good condition it will affect the electric garage opener. As a result the motor could not last as long as expected.
We check all parts of the garage door – hinges, pulleys, cables, springs, rollers etc – making any adjustments or lubricating as necessary. As part of the garage door service, our technicians will also check and correct the spring tension. They will recommend any repairs if necessary.
Why do you not install other garage door opener brands?
Other brands of garage door motors are generally not well supported. In other words, it is difficult (and sometimes not possible) to get parts and service for these motors. Our suppliers generally don’t stock other brands for this very reason. Sometimes the lack of support is because they are no longer made or imported. It is simply not cost effective for our clients if we spend the time and money necessary sourcing parts for these motors. Often they have been installed as cheap alternatives to the better, more pricey, brands and only end up costing the owner more down the line when they start to break. Generally we recommend that we replace these motors with new, good-quality products.
