Buy a New Opener at the Same Time
The same person who installs your new door can also install a new garage door opener. Your opener will fail eventually, so if it's showing its age or you just want a quieter opener or one with more features, this is the time to replace it. Replacing it along with the door will probably save you money on labor, and you may even be able to negotiate a package deal on the new door and opener.
Think Twice About Installing Your Own Door
Use Manufacturers' Websites to Choose a Door Design
You don't have to guess how a particular style and color of door will look on your house. Most manufacturers have software on their website that allows you to upload a photo of your garage and add any of their garage door styles to it. This lets you choose a door style, include the design features you like, pick windows and a color, and even add hardware. You can play around with different styles until you find one you like.Then print out the specs for an accurate price quote from your dealer.
