There are many ways to upgrade your home, but some ways are surprisingly more practical than others. Getting a new garage door opener might not be the most glamorous part of owning a home, but it can be a great value upgrade that will make your home feel even better. How long does this home upgrade take? Let’s find out.

The Garage Door Opener Installation Timeline

The timeline for your garage door opener installation actually starts before the installation itself. To help you better understand the real time commitment of having this installation done, we have broken down the process as it involves you, the homeowner.

First Contact & Decision Making

The path to your new garage door opener starts with that initial point of contact. Depending on how you choose to contact us, you may receive different turnaround times, particularly outside of business hours. Rest assured, we will get back to you as quickly as possible!

Once we get connected, we will discuss your options with you. This will help you to decide what garage door opener is the right fit for your garage door. We will also determine what the installation will entail.


After we know what you want to see for your home, we can make a plan for the scheduling. The timeline between when we first discuss your needs and the installation will vary based on scheduling availability for us and you. We will find an installation window that suits your needs and fits into our team’s schedule as well.

The biggest influence on scheduling availability is generally the time of year. During certain times of the year, we may be busier than others. This might mean that we have less availability depending on when you call us.


The garage door installation itself will take roughly 1.5 hours on average. This timeline is a general estimate and may vary depending on what work is involved, the model you choose, and the features of your home. Since each installation is unique, we will communicate a good estimate to you and keep you informed if the timeline is likely to change for any reason.

Some installations go more quickly, while others take a little extra time. No matter what, we will always prioritize quality to make sure you receive a great experience.
