Initial Garage Door Installation Steps

None of the major steps involved with garage door installation should ever be skipped. Skipping these steps is the sign of shoddy garage door installer more focused on cutting corners than doing a great job.
The first consideration is the stiffness of the door. A stiffener should be installed along the top edge of the garage door. Any garage door without this piece will be likely to bend and flex every single time the door is moved, which will eventually cause warping and loosening of screws and bolts. That warping can lead to the door jamming. Next, the garage door opener should be centered perfectly with the door. If the automatic opener is off center, it will place uneven stress on the door.

Mounting the Garage Door in Place

After installing a stiffened garage door to a perfectly centered garage door opener trolley, the counterbalance to the door needs to be adjusted at an increment of one foot until the door is fully raised. This will make the door more stable and easier to handle manually if the opener is not working. Installing garage doors in Dayton is something we do every single day.
