There are two types of garage doors install, manual and automatic. Here are some basic facts about the way we install your garage doors. In our experience, those who prefer a manual door usually do so because they believe that it affords them a greater amount of security.
Manual Door Installation
A manual door is the easiest to operate. You simply pull it up or down. While you do not see many manual doors these days, they still exist. However, just keep in mind that there are not as many choices in this type of door that are offered to you. Some manufacturers no longer make them available due to the lack of interest in their markets. If you need repairs made to your manual door, you’ll notice that the repairs are not as expensive as they are for an automatic garage door. The reason is that they have fewer parts. An automatic garage door has the ability to be broken into quickly than a manual door. You’ll usually need a key to get in and out, which can be less appealing to some people. On the other hand, those who choose to have a manual door installed do so for this reason. Without the right key to open the door, intruders are less likely to be able to gain access to the garage. The first thing that is installed are the door springs. After these are securely installed, the brackets will be attached and connected. If you are having torsion springs installed, they are inserted into the brackets. After measuring the length of the release of the spring, the screws can then be attached and tightened. Both drums are secured and the retainer and winding spring is attached. Springs are wound very tightly and therefore, only a qualified service technician should handle this type of job for you.
Automatic Door Installation
The automatic garage door is more complicated to install. It is heavier than most manual doors. It is heavier due to the type of cables and wires used in its design. Unlike the manual garage door, the automatic door has moving parts that need to be properly installed in order to work effectively. When these parts are incorrectly installed, they may cause you harm or can damage your car. The first thing that the technician will do when installing your garage door is attach the track to the drive unit. Mounting brackets are then attached to the track. The motor is then attached to the beam of the ceiling. The ceiling is the most appropriate place for it to be installed because of its weight. They will then attach the motor wires to the wall switch. Sensors for the door are installed to notify you of something blocking the beams or safety sensors. The last thing that will be done is the garage door opener will be connected to the door. Without the garage door opener, you’re unable to effectively open and close the door of your garage. This is truly something that should be left to in the hands of the trained professionals who have the qualifications and skills needed to install your garage door correctly. A qualified technician will know how to effectively install any type of automatic garage door.
