Custom Garage Door Installation

At first, installing bespoke garage doors can seem daunting. Many hardware stores across the country offer to instal your new garage door, and while they do list the prices of the repair, the initial cost estimate rarely includes the increased labour expenses. Visit here Metro Garage Door Repair

Your friends and family may have advised you to engage a professional repairman, but we’ll show you how to do it yourself with this article. Fortunately, installing a new garage door isn’t difficult, and if you follow this battle plan, you may have your new custom garage doors up and running in less time than it takes to read this page six times.

1.) Initial, make certain that your chosen weatherstripping is secured to the bottom of the garage door’s first panel.

2.) Place the first panel at the bottom of the doorway and lightly nail each jamb to either side of the doorway to secure it.

3.) If you haven’t previously done so, attach hinges to the upper edges of the door and make sure they’re tight. (Tug on them a couple of times.)

4.) Assemble the horizontal, curved, and vertical track parts according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

5.) Attach the rollers to the door’s second part. Lift the portion up, align the rollers, and place them on the vertical tracks you just built on the doorway. (You may require assistance from a second person.)

6.) Make sure the hinges between the first and second parts are snug.

7.) Carry out the same steps for the third portion. Check the level of the door as well as the vertical track for plumb. Attach the vertical track’s top plates to the wall. Ensure that the lag screws are completely secure.

8.) Carefully attach jamb brackets to each track and secure them to the framing members.

9.) Bolt the curved and horizontal tracks in place. TIP: If you want to make the process a little easier, use a ladder to rest the horizontal track on top of.

10.) Before continuing on, double-check that everything is level. Reduce the length of the rear track hanger to the required length. Attach the track hanger to a sturdy frame (preferably a ceiling joist or blocking). Repeat with the opposite side, loosely mounting on the hanger. (If you don’t have a torque tube to instal, skip to step 13).

11.) Install the final door section and remove the temporary nails from the jambs and other locations.

12.) If you have a torque tube, instal your bespoke garage doors according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Double-check each track’s alignment and level, and roll the door up four to five feet to ensure that all of the sections are properly aligned. Continue with the torque tube installation if everything appears to be in order.

13.) You’ve completed the task! Congratulations on your do-it-yourself project!
