Just another happy customer with Ron where he did 3 garages for me today. He’s simply the best, referred him to my friends and he did 4 houses for me over the years. Thanks

Thanks to the reviews in this thread, I decided to hire Ron to replace an old GDO with a Chamerblain B970C and was happy with his work. I texted him last Thursday evening, and had my new GDO up and running by Saturday afternoon (only took him about 2 hours to complete and he kept all the wiring neat & organized). He's really personable, and I would definitely vouch for him.

My garage door nowsday doesn't open all the way up, it opened up 75% and it stops. I close it half way and re-open it, then it will go all the way up.

Is the garage open dying or just the spring?

Another plus review for Ron. He did my door today (same day service) and did a great job. Very satisfied customer. He really seems to know his stuff.

We live in Oakville and he made the trek twice (for me and my neighbour)

I think he meant garage door openers. I don’t think Ron installs garage doors

thanks I just messaged Ron and he said he doesn't install doors. Anyone can recommend door installers?

Installing your own garage door opener isn't that hard. I did it myself a couple of days ago and the instructions were fairly simple to follow, took me an afternoon to do. The real advantage of getting someone else to do it is that you have easier access to the 'Liftmaster' brand from an installer, which has a better rail than the 'Chamberlain' brand (one sturdier piece instead of four assembled pieces). They're otherwise identical.

Honestly, I'm no DIY genius and it wasn't that bad. The instructions are fairly easy to follow - assemble the rail, attach it to the opener, run the chain/belt along the rail, attach a bracket above the garage, attach rail to bracket, attach opener to ceiling, attach bracket to door, attach rail to door, install opener and sensors then run wires to the opener. You do burn an afternoon doing this, but it's kind of satisfying work and it's free.

I'm taking possession of a new build townhouse very soon.
As with any new build, things will be a bit of a disaster for the first few/several months. Driveway will not be paved either.

Is there a recommended waiting time before the garage door opener should get installed into a new build?
Or does the garage door opener need to wait on other things before it can be installed ?

You can do it right away. When you get your driveway paved, you'll have to keep your garage door open for the pavers so keep that in mind. Just store valuables away safely during that period.

First thing I installed when I took possession was the garage door opener. I did that before changing the locks

Question, does Ron also get the garage opener for his customers or you have to buy yourself and he just installs for you?
