How to Prepare Your
Garage for a
New Garage Door
Opener Installation

Important Installation Requirements

For a smooth and efficient installation of your new garage door opener, the following steps are mandatory and must be completed before our technician’s arrival:

Clear the Area: Ensure that the area around your garage door is free of vehicles, tools, or any other items. Clearing this space is essential for providing our installer with unobstructed access and sufficient room to work safely, while also protecting your belongings from potential dust and debris. This step is crucial for the installation of your new garage door opener and is required to ensure the safety of our technicians. If you have any questions or need assistance with this preparation, please don’t hesitate to contact our office.

Check the Power Source: Verify that there is an adequate electrical outlet within reach of the garage door opener’s motor. Most openers need a standard 110-volt outlet. If the nearest outlet is too far away or if you do not have an appropriate power source, you may need to have one installed by a licensed electrician before your installation appointment.

Secure Loose Items: If you have shelves or storage near the garage door, secure any loose items that could fall during the installation. The movement of ladders and tools can sometimes jostle unsecured items, posing a risk.

Inspect the Garage Door: Give your existing garage door a quick inspection to identify any potential issues that might complicate the opener installation. Look for damaged panels, poor lubrication, or worn-out springs. Addressing these issues with your technician beforehand would be beneficial.

Discuss Access with Installer: If you won’t be home during the installation, make sure to discuss how the installer will access your garage. This information will be required at the time you schedule your appointment. If you are a landlord, please let us know at the time you schedule your installation who, or how payment will be made. If you are a tenant, please confirm all necessary payments with your landlord.  Our technicians will give you a thirty minute notice before arriving at your home.

The following steps are recommended to enhance your installation experience:

Review Safety Measures:  Keep children and pets away from the garage during the process to prevent accidents.

Prepare Questions: Have a list of questions ready for the installer if you have any concerns or need clarification about the operation and maintenance of your new garage door opener.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. We look forward to providing you with a smooth installation process. If you have any questions or need further clarification, please do not hesitate to contact us.

When it comes to garage safety, you are the key.

Safety should be your primary concern when selecting a garage door opener. According to statistics from the National Electronic Injury Surveillance System (NEISS), in 2019 alone, approximately 15,000 individuals sustained injuries related to garage doors. Many of these injuries, including those from falling doors and do-it-yourself installation mishaps, highlight the critical importance of professional installation and maintenance for your garage door systems.

In compliance with U.S. Federal Law UL 325, all garage door openers must include safety mechanisms such as sensors, the most commonly used safety tools. This requirement has been in effect since the early 1990s, ensuring all garage doors are equipped with sensors to comply with federal regulations.
