5 Steps to Your Get Your New Garage Door Installed
Replacing your garage doors doesn't have to be a difficult process. Check out our list below to ensure a smooth garage door installation process or feel free to simply give us a call and we'll be happy to explain the garage door installation process!
MEASURE AND QUOTE
It is important that you have an Onyx Garage Doors technician visit your home and measure up your door opening – this is the only way to get an accurate garage door replacement cost. It is not recommended that you do your own measure up for your door. Onyx Garage Doors technicians are trained to measure the opening and know what allowances they need to make for tracks, wheels, etc., before they finalize a door size.
CHOOSE YOUR DOOR
There are a range of different types of garage doors, as well as different styles of openers and other accessories available. Not all doors will suit your garage, but your Onyx Garage Doors technician will be able to advise you on this, once they are on site. Before they arrive though, it is worth doing a little bit of your own research to find out what garage door style you like. Have a look at our Gallery, different door styles and different colors, until you find the door that suits your home the best. You need to consider:
What type of door do I like? Steel sectional like the Raised Panel or maybe Full-view Aluminum sectional door, wood-like sectional or a tilting door?
What opener will suit my home and lifestyle? If you have bedrooms near the garage, a shift worker in the home, or teenagers who come in at all hours, maybe you should consider a Belt Drive opener.
What about accessories for your new garage door? There are a range of different accessories available for your door and opener, to make it more suitable to your lifestyle.
DOUBLE CHECK QUOTES
If you choose to get quotes from dealers, and you notice a price difference between them, make sure you question them, to be sure you are comparing apples with apples. If the quote only says parts and labor for example, is it a non-insulated door or a Steelback insulated door? While these are both Standard garage doors, they have different features, which means they have different sell prices. There are also differences in openers. One of the biggest differences is in the warranty. Ask the dealer – how many years is the warranty for? Does the warranty cover part and labor, or only parts?
Once you decided what garage door works for you the most, our Onyx Garage Doors technician will schedule your installation date. It might take a few days or a few weeks for a custom door delivery, or delivery of the door parts.
On the installation day, our technician will prepare the site, install the door and all the parts for a proper garage door operation, and finally will clean the workspace to leave it as clean as it been before our arrival.
