Project: Install or Replace a Garage Door Opener
Philadelphia, PA

My garage door was bent at the bottom panel and a hinge was broken. I sent out an email on Home Advisor and got a call from Yafim from All About garage Doors, Inc within 10 minutes. He was waiting for me by the time I got home. He was courteous and very professional. He gave me options to either fix the door or change it all together . I initially thought I had a standard garage door, but he rightly pointed out it was a custom door. Not only did he fix the panel door and change the hinge, he also worked to ensure my garage door closed and locked properly and later explained everything to me. My door was fixed within an hour and you would hardly know it had been dented from an unparked car. I would definitely use Yafim again for all issues with my garage. Thanks!

Project: Install or Replace a Garage Door Opener
Elkins Park, PA

I had planned to get a few more estimates beyond Nick but when he stopped by and was able to start part of the job right there, without having to replace every part, I hired him on the spot. What really won me over was the fact that he monitors his reviews and replies to all. Even the fact if someone is totally thrilled with him but gives less than 5 stars, he inquires why. With me, he won't need to inquire because he earned his 5 stars with me.

Philadelphia Garage Door Openers

A garage door opener that functions properly is quite a convenience in Philadelphia. Garage door openers that function poorly, on the other hand, can quite literally leave you out in the cold (which, in southeastern PA is no joke). If you are one of the many people who have simply gotten used to a jerky, squealing opener, maybe it's time to upgrade. Your car, and probably your neighbors as well, will thank you for it.

Pre-Replacement Checks
Before installing a garage door opener, Philadelphians should first make sure that the door opens with ease manually. There are many factors in southeastern Pennsylvania that can hinder your garage door's operation. Rust on moving parts is definitely a concern, as is grit and dirt getting into rollers, bearings, or tracks. If you have a wooden door, warping and bowing can cause some noticeable operation problems, while large dents can have a similar effect on metal models. Give the entire door and its components a good once over. Clean it and use oil or an aerosol lubricant where necessary (nylon rollers, however, should not be lubricated). If the door still doesn't open easily, you may need to call in a professional.

Types of Openers
Once the door opens smoothly and without a significant effort (a ten-year old can lift it), it's now time to pick out your new opener. There are three basic styles of garage openers, and each has its pros and cons. A belt driven model is generally the quietest, and a screw drive is best for doors that tilt up rather than roll up on a track. A chain driven model is very dependable and is suitable for most applications.

There are several levels of strength commonly available for the motor of your garage door opener. Philadelphia residents with an average sized single door will probably do fine with a 1/4 horsepower opener. For homes with a two car door, a 1/3 or 1/2 horsepower opener is recommended. If your door is over 7 feet tall, it is likely that you will have to use an extender kit to have proper function.

Automatic Garage Door Safety Features
In 1993, a law was passed regarding garage door safety. It requires that any automatic door have one of the following features: a button that needs to be continually pressed for the door to close, an electric eye sensor, or a door edge sensor. A safe and well functioning garage door will also reverse when it comes into contact with an object in its path or whenever a sensor registers something in the path of the door. Modern garage doors should all contain some or all of these features. If your current door was installed prior to 1982, it may pose a risk to small children, pets, or property.

The average Philadelphia garage door opener is going to cost in the neighborhood of $400 installed. Repairing a garage door opener in Philadelphia can run anywhere between $50 and $250. To replace the garage door itself, southeastern PA prices range from $1,000 to $2,000.
