    Hi there
    Has anyone replaced a tilt garage door of the above specifications? My PM got me a quote for $1790 excluding labour.

    We were going to replace some roller doors and received some sky high quotes, upwards of $3000. Ended up finding a place selling off 2nd doors at $300 a pop and fitted them ourselves.

    We're overseas at the moment and won't be back until end January. Tenants are moving in on 5 Jan. Also is OT a good idea to put a motor for the tilt garage door for an IP? Probably minimal benefits?

    If going to the trouble I'd def make it remote

    Unless it can be organised sometime after they move in your prob gunna have to suck it up re price, "most" installers will be on annual leave now until at least the 4th Jan, many will be off longer.

    Garage door may seem a simple subject, PM's don't have allot of time (perhaps interest), bit difficult for you while OS, but... if you have a rello/friend that can organise a few suppliers to meet them at the property to asses options/quotes you maybe enlightened.

    Even if you don't have anyone that can meet them there, it's pretty basic for them as long as they can open/see inside garage for structural mounting requirements etc.

    Another consideration is power point for remote.

    If this is in a complex keep in mind you may be limited to specific uniformity requirements etc

    We've just installed two remote tilt doors on a house that had no doors. We've advertised at a higher rent that it was getting before we purchased it. We installed dishwasher and air-con too.

    I would always add a remote because I used to hate having to get out of the car to open the doors before we did our own reno, and I'm sure most people are the same. If it makes our house more attractive to a potential tenant than another with no remote, no air-con, no dishwasher, it is worth doing. If they lose the remote, they pay for a new one.

    Cost for two substantial doors was $4k including three remotes per door. We could have done it cheaper with a cheaper cladding on the door, but paid more for a tougher, better quality gauge of steel, colourbond finish. Cost us (I think) about $100 to have a power point installed to plug into.

    It's a house. Thankfully my PM is on the ball. More quotes to come.
