Let The Pro's Handle The Garage Door Installation

Jul 12, 2008
If you want to have the proper fit and seal for your garage door you might want to consider having it done by a someone with experience. Unless of course you are very sure of yourself. You can't miss any pieces and they all have to line up and fit together properly for the door to open and close right and to ensure long life.

Someone new to garage door installation techniques might not be aware of the amount of tension that the springs are under and it could prove to be a painful experience if the proper garage door installation techniques are not used.

When you make your purchase of your new garage door you will find some instructions in every case. These instructions can make the project of hanging a garage door seem relatively simple until you get started an the reality of the difficulties you are going to face become clear.

Installing the side tracks on which the door will glide up and down has to be done with the right amount of spacing at the top and bottom to insure the door seals in the frame when closed and yet, does not bind on the door frame while going up and down.

Make sure when you are doing the garage door installation, to double and triple check the measurements on your rails. While the is some room for play if you set the to close the door will not move up and don and if you set them to far apart the rollers will just fall out.

Lighter Doors Are Definitely An Easier Option

There are some garage doors made of fiberglass or other lightweight material that make the garage door installation easy enough for the inexperienced. They require no springs to help take the weight of the door and are light enough for one person to handle. One of the keys to garage door installation is to insure the rubber piece on the bottom of the door provides a good seal between the door and the garage floor.

This seal can prevent the intrusion by wind, rain and snow during inclement weather as well as keeping uninvited guests out of the garage, Mice, bugs and other small animals and insects will try to find comfortable living conditions and a bad garage door installation job can leave many openings for them to access the house.

There have been many homeowners who have tried in vain to install their own garage door only to end up hiring a professional to repair their work and then to install the garage door properly. Ouch double fees. My advice, if you have never done it and really don't have any clue hire someone who does. You will then be assured of a quality fit the first time and satisfaction is normally guaranteed.
