Thinking about automating my garage door. 7ftx6.5 ft. Its an old STEEL Westland (WEL) Garador MK3 c. Its so old that automating it is impractical/impossible so its looking like --- NEW DOOR + OPENER. This leaves me with several decisions to make. 1. which TYPE of door to go for. CANOPY is probably out since its not so easy to automate? RETRACTABLE inexpensive, easy to automate but mechanism will possible reduce door width/ garage headroom? SECTIONAL easy to automate ,more expensive? increased width,/ headroom, better security but more wearing parts? ROLLER easy to automate, more expensive, good security, increased width, but needs installation height above door, domestic models not very robust, scratch easily, lots of parts to wear out? At the moment SECTIONAL seems to be the best option apart from cost??? 2. which MANUFACTURER Lots out there so its a bit baffling. Thought it would be a good idea to get both door and opener from the same manufacturer to get complete compatibility/ fitment but this is probably dependant on how easy the combined unit will fit my garage?? DOORS/DOOR OPERATORS. GARADOR (again), HENDERSON. CARDALE, HORMANN, MARANTEC, CHAMBERLAIN??? At the moment I am leaning towards a steel GARADOR door plus opener again but I would be grateful for any comments good or bad from other owners or from other folks who are thinking along the same lines. I am looking for long term reliability, ease of use/maintenance, and durability of finish and prepared to pay a bit more for this. I know that the end result is somewhat dependant on how competent the fitting firm is so any recommendations of fitting companies in Scotland would be useful also.
