Hiring a professional for your garage door installation offers many benefits. Your local garage door techs at Garage Door Guy have years of expertise, safety training, can do the job faster, and we offer a warranty on our work. Going with a professional for your garage door installation is a worthwhile investment that ensures your garage doors will function properly for a long time.

Professional garage door installation

Our professional garage door installers are thoroughly trained in the processes of installing new garage doors. They know the systems inside and out, how to install them safely and efficiently. Garage doors are extremely heavy and the torsion spring that acts as a counterweight to the garage door is under extremely high tension during its operation. If the spring is installed improperly, there’s a significant risk of injuring yourself during installation or future operation of the door.

All of our technicians also make sure your door is compliant with housing code UL-325. This code states all openers manufactured after 1993 have the safety reverse sensors and are mounted within 3-6 inches of the floor. This code ensures garage doors don’t crush people and animals as it closes.

Another overlooked benefit is warranty coverage by using a professional for your garage door installation. Many garage door companies have limited lifetime warranties on their products but these warranties often require professional installation for them to remain valid. By hiring Garage Door Guy, you have the peace of mind knowing your new garage door is eligible for warranty coverage. Further, we guarantee our work. So, while you would be at-fault for incorrectly installing your garage door and ineligible to replace it through your warranty, if we make a mistake the door is covered by our warranty.

How to prepare for professional garage door installation
