Several equipment are used when wanting to install a garage door. When the materials and tools are acquired then the installation process begins. The first step in garage installation is measuring, attaching hinges and handles. The various areas where the door is installed is measured and they include headroom, backroom and door opening height and width. To obtain the perfect installation the headroom, backroom and door opening height and width need to fall in a certain range.
When the door area are measured, temporary stops are then attached by flushing the inside edge of the door jamb. Not only are wood jambs used but also saw horses are used to lay the bottom piece of the new door and attach any weather stripping if necessary. The process of measuring and attaching involves measuring the various door areas then attaching a stop to the door by flushing, then using saw horses to lay the bottom piece of the new door and finally attaching the hinges.

Tapping of the nails into the wood jamb is done after the bottom piece is properly set up. The nails are bent or slanted in order to secure them in place. In order to assemble the curved, vertical and horizontal pieces of the track manufacturer’s instructions are used. Installation of the remaining panels is the third step when installing garage doors. The second panel is installed on top of the first and then nails are hammered. The side jambs is the position in which nail hammering is done to hold it in place.
Hinges are installed and the process repeated after doing nail hammering when the second panel is placed. Roller addition is done after the all the necessary sections are secured. The rollers are placed in the assembled track in order to secure the tracks brackets. When placing rollers they need not to be pressed too tightly as door damage can occur by friction. Track securing and attaching of springs is done as the last process of garage door installation. In order to install the curved and horizontal pieces, vertical tracks are secured against the jambs.
Use of previous measurements are used to and leveling also in order to make sure the tracks are straight and therefore installation horizontal pieces.
