Having a garage attached to your house is very convenient during periods of inclement weather, however it can be more of a burden than anything if you have to get out of the car and strain yourself in order to quickly open the door by hand. Through the installation of garage door openers for your garage door, you can avoid all of the hardships that accompany opening the door manually, and do it from the comfort of your vehicle or your home. If you are considering getting one, but see too many options for garage door openers at your local Toronto hardware store, there are several things that you should consider.
First off, how much are you willing to spend for garage door openers? There are a great range of different choices for your opener, and there are different features that accompany different models. A feature commonly found in more expensive openers is a built in battery pack so you can open the garage even if the power goes out in your home. Also, some of the more pricey models have different methods of pulling the door, such as a belt instead of a fragile chain.
Second, you need to determine how much weight the opener will be required to lift. Some of the smaller units are able to lift a single stall door rather easily, but they also have a much lower weight rating. Larger models can be more expensive, but they are more durable under the strain of a large door and they can support more weight to keep your garage door moving safely.
