I am planning to install an electric garage door opener on my garage. It's just a standard single car garage door about 8 feet wide by 8 feet high. I am just wondering if anyone here has done it and if so do you have any pointers? It can't be that hard. I called a local door company and they only charge an hour's labor, $100.00 to install if you have your own opener. Their highest price on their opener with installation was only about $520.00. That is provided I already have an electrical outlet adjacent to the mounting location for the opener. I am very mechanically inclined and have an extensive knowledge of automotive electronics and a very good working knowledge of residential wiring and electrical. I figure I should be able to handle it, but it will of course take me longer to do. Any help and info is very much appreciated.
