Cost for Garage Door Opener Installation
How Much Does it Cost to Install a Garage Door Opener?
Garage door openers are an essential part of modern garage doors. If you’re considering installing a new garage door opener, it helps to understand the various factors that can impact the overall cost so you know what to expect.
Here are some elements that can influence installation costs, the different types of openers available, and some extra considerations to help you make an informed decision.
Does the Price of a New Opener Include Installation Cost?
When searching for new opener prices online, you’ll likely find information that only includes the price of the opener itself – not the installation.
That’s because most reputable garage door companies (including Precision) will only be able to give you an accurate quote once we get the details of your home.
That being said, these are a few factors that will reliably influence the cost for garage door opener installation. Those include:
- The region you live in
- The size and weight of your garage door
- How complex your garage door system is
- The type of opener you’d like installed (more on that later!)
At Precision, our fees include installation by a professionally trained technician, 25-point safety inspection, balance test, and an industry-leading warranty.
Having trouble getting your garage door to open and close? The opener may not be to blame – call Precision if your door isn’t operating correctly.
Opener Types and Installation Cost
We carry three popular types of openers: chain drive, belt drive, and direct drive. The type that works best for your home will depend on the size and weight of your door and the type of garage you have.
Do you have an attached garage? If so, you may be happier with a belt drive or direct drive opener since those are typically much quieter than chain drives.
Do you have a large, heavy, or unattached garage? A chain drive garage door opener is probably a great choice. While they’re noisier than other opener types, they’re also better at handling heavier weights – and if your garage isn’t attached, the noise won’t disturb you anyway.

Can You Install a New Opener Yourself?

An improperly installed opener can cause strain on garage door parts and impact your quality of life. Plus, Precision’s work is backed by an industry-leading warranty that protects you and your home in case there are any defects or issues with your new opener.
For your safety and peace of mind, it’s best to leave new opener installation to the pros.
