When you think about a garage door what comes to your mind? A good fancy door with all the best modern features and maybe what you will need to do in order to ensure that it remains in good shape. This are all very important things for your garage door but there is one thing that often slips your mind but it is equally important. A lot of emphasis is put on acquiring the best door in the market but its installation is often overlooked.
No matter how perfect the garage door may be, if it is not installed properly it will not serve you as you expect and you will not utilize properly all the good features that it holds. Garage door experts will tell you that installation is where most people go wrong with their garage doors and it normally affects the door for its lifetime.
A garage door may look very simple to install especially for those people who like the DIY (Do It Yourself) projects but this couldn’t be further from the truth. The garage door is not your ordinary door and so it is better left to professionals.
Importance of proper installation
A proper new garage door install will increase the lifespan of your garage door. If the door is properly installed it also means that everything else will be functioning properly. Some elements like the opener are affected by how the door is installed. For example if the garage door is not balanced then it will cause a strain on one side of the opener. This in turn will lead to damage on the opener.
The garage door consists of very many individual parts and each one of them has to be at its rightful place for the door to function properly. If the door is not installed properly then it is more likely to stall and hence requiring some repairs. This is additional cost which could have been avoided through proper installation.
Proper installation will help prevent garage accidents. This door is very heavy and so in the event of an accident the damage that it will leave behind may be catastrophic. If not properly installed, it is possible for the door to snap and slam down with a lot of force crashing everything on its path.
Proper installation will give the door the beautiful appearance that attracted you to it. More often than not people buy garage doors but once they install them they do not look as good as they hoped. This is despite the door being the exact same one that they saw in the advertisement. The reason behind this is poor installation. If you want it to look as good as the one you saw online or in a magazine then have it installed properly.
A properly installed door is easy and also cheap to maintain. What makes it easy to maintain is that everything is in its right place and so the job is pretty easy for the technician.
