Points to Ponder About Garage Door Installation

by Qarah Ict Qarah ICT

Garage door installation is not that easy. Homeowners attempting to install garage doors on their own often land into trouble. Most of the time, professional help will make things easy. In this article, we will discuss certain information that will be helpful for your next garage door installation.

Garage Door Spring

During garage door installation, spring is one of the crucial considerations. A standard torsion spring system is complicated to get installed/replaced by homeowners. On the contrary, an extended spring system is easier for homeowners to attempt. Check the manufacturer's specifications if you are unsure about your current spring system.

Follow Installation Instructions

Read the instruction manual beforehand. In case of a new garage door installation, keep the installation instructions handy if you are attempting to install on your own. The standard tools you will require are- a level, tape measure, electric screwdriver, hammer, and pliers.

Remember that a new garage door comes in multiple sections. Each section contains an assembly that must be assembled before hanging them. This process is expected to consume considerable time. You can use a sawhorse or workbench for assembling the garage door pieces.

If you have an old garage door, you need to remove it before the new garage door installation. After removing the old door and metallic track, inspect the frame for no rot or damage. The most crucial step during garage door installation is to ensure that the first section of the door is fitted to the level. This is important because all the remaining pieces are stacked on top of this first piece. The garage door will appear crooked if the first section is incorrectly done. The brackets of the first section need to be fitted with extra care and tightened properly.

After installing the first section, you must attach the track's first section and the corresponding rollers. After completing the first set, install the second section, the second section of the track, and the corresponding rollers. Repeat the process until all sections are fitted.

The next step in garage door installation is installing horizontal tracks across the ceiling. The level of the track needs to be maintained. You can use a ladder or similar tool to hold the horizontal track up while you work on the bracing.

Lastly, install the spring system. Spring systems vary greatly; you should use the manufacturer's installation manual closely.
