GARAGE DOOR INSTALLATION
How can we help?
So, you’ve made the decision to buy a new, or replace your existing garage door. There are just a few steps involved, and there’s always someone available to give you advice, if you run into trouble.
MEASURE AND QUOTE
It is important that you have a Chicago Garage Door technician visit your home and measure up your door opening – this is the only way to get an accurate quote. It is not recommended that you do your own measure up for your door. CHICAGO GARAGE DOOR™ technicians are trained to measure the opening, and know what allowances they need to make for tracks, wheels, etc., before they finalise 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 CHICAGO GARAGE DOOR™ 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 sectional like the Accent Woodtones 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? There are a range of different accessories available for your door and opener, to make it more suitable to your lifestyle. Own a big SUV or a LUXURY car? Consider Garage Laser Park Assist Accessory and help prevent damage to your car and garage. Do you have kids? Consider an entry keypad. Do you have pets or small children who may run under a moving door? Consider a Safety Infra-red beam kit (Note – CHICAGO GARAGE DOOR™ recommends that Safety Infra-red beam kits are installed on all automated doors).
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 C.H.I, for example, is it a Non-insulated door or a Double steel full insulated door? While these are both C.H.I 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 parts and labor, or only parts?
Once you decided what garage door works for you the most, our CHICAGO GARAGE DOOR™ 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 work space to leave it as clean as it been before our arrival.
