Excuse the Ali Baba themed title, but an electric garage door opener and remote control does fit the bill rather well. You simply drive up to your garage, click the button and hey presto.

In an age where what used to be luxury items are becoming part of our everyday lives, the automated garage door and remote control – or more commonly these days, smartphone app – are becoming an expected necessity.

An automated garage door is operated via a small, quiet but powerful motor that controls the springs and tracks of the opening mechanism.

Automation suits retractable doors – such as roller and sectional garage doors – better than up-and-overs, but most doors can be converted into automated ones.

And they are not as expensive as you may think. Our automation conversions start at £380 depending on the type and the work required to do the installation.

Once installed correctly, an automated garage door should work faultlessly for years. We do get callouts from time to time when home owners start to experience problems with their electric garage door openers. Quite often it is the garage door that is the issue and not the opener or remote control.

Operating an automated garage could not be easier. The remote controls or smartphone apps are simple to use, pleasing to the eye and can operate from a fair distance away of about 100 metres.

If you want to make your life easier with an automated garage door or have issues with your current one, please do not hesitate to give me a call.
