Garage Door Process and Timeline
Installing a garage door involves several steps. First, you must remove the old door and its accompanying hardware. Any gaps, cracks, or other damage in the opening must be repaired so that the new door can be installed properly. Then the panels must be assembled with a reinforcing bar to prevent warping, and secured with axle supports and hinges. Next, the tracks must be secured with brackets, and a spring assembly attached. Getting this step wrong can throw off the entire installation process. Finally, the pulleys and torsion rod must be installed.
That’s just for a standard garage door. If you’re installing an automatic door – and why wouldn’t you – the process involves attaching the motor and opening assembly, including assuring sufficient clearance for whatever vehicles will be stored in the garage.
For a professional garage door installer, this is a relatively quick task. A clueless do-it-yourself-er could waste hours, if not longer – and still fail to get the job done right.
