Electric garage doors can be single or double car openings, and there are advantages and disadvantages of each one. Single doors are easier to open by hand should there be a power failure, and are also less expensive than double garage doors are. Even so, double doors provide better access for oversized vehicles such as campers, boats, or farm equipment.

There are also advantages to choosing different materials for electric garage doors. Wooden doors are easier to paint or stain to match an existing exterior; however, they will need to be refinished every few years. Vinyl or steel doors typically do not need repainted, but may not insulate as well as wood does. When determining the right materials for a electric garage door, you should consider the aesthetics of your building as well as what the garage is primarily used for in order to make a decision.

Installing Electric Garage Doors

Quite a bit of detail is involved in installing electric garage doors. It is a job that requires more than one person in order to perform properly. Even so, you can face multiple difficulties when it comes to installing a garage door on your own. A few of the problems you might encounter when installing an electric garage door include:

  1. Taking improper measurements
  2. Straining your back lifting heavy components
  3. Failing to get the door level
  4. Difficulty wiring electrical components together

Many electric garage doors come with a warranty against manufacturer defects. This warranty could be voided if you attempt the job yourself because you could inadvertently damage the door or some of its working parts. As a result, you could be denied a claim for these damages because you failed to use a licensed contractor to perform the installation for you.

Don't struggle with this job and risk failing to install your electric garage door properly. You'll only end up frustrated and without a door that operates as it should. You could even end up having to hire an electric garage door contractor to complete the work properly, which means you won't save any money in the process.

Your electric garage door questions answered

What happens if the power goes out?

In the event of a power outage, the door can be disconnected from the motor and raised or lowered manually along the track. Once power is restored, it can be easily reconnected.

Can I get trapped under the door?

No, there are often a twofold system in place to prevent this. The doors are equipped with a pressure sensor that reverses the door if it detects resistance, as well as an infrared sensor that alerts the motor to the presence of anything in the door's path.

Can multiple doors be installed to one switch yet still open independently?

No. A garage door is a simple binary circuit, so if you install multiple doors on a single switch, all of the doors will open every time the switch is pressed. Switches and remotes will usually have multiple buttons to operate individual doors.

Can I install my own garage doors?

Garage door installation can be fairly simple, but there are a few things to consider before you attempt the installation. If you don't have any experience with electrical or mechanical installations, then the job is best left to professionals.

Do I need to be concerned about electric garage doors being struck by lightning?

Lightning strikes are always a possibility, but are actually very rare. So long as your garage door is properly grounded, the odds of it being struck by lightning is very low.
