Every new garage door comes with a manual which will include all possible information needed for its installation. For each type of garage door, even if it comes from the same brand/manufacturer, there may be very specific instructions that you will need to follow step-by-step in order to maximize or optimize its efficiency.
However, instead of trying to figure out how to install your garage door, our advice: just call up a reliable garage door service.
At the end of the day, calling a garage door service will turn out to be cheaper than trying to install your garage door yourself. Why, you may ask?
Installing a garage door is hard. It is made up of complex mechanisms which when not properly installed, will be dangerous for you and your loved ones. In fact, according to data of the US Consumer Product Safety Commission, 20,000 people each year have been treated in hospital emergency rooms for injuries related to garage doors.
Aside from being dangerous, if you do not have any training in installing garage doors, you may find that it is not appropriate to your garage or that you may make some mistakes in the installation. This will cause you to spend more than you should have on your garage door.
Here is why it is hard to install a garage door:
- A lot of different parts come with your garage door. These include all the nuts and bolts, hinges, rollers, tracks, garage door spring and so on. And we are not even talking about the garage door opener here which is another complicated mechanism. Before you start, you will need to take stock of all of these parts in order to determine what goes where. If you are not able to properly install your door due to a lack of understanding of its parts, your garage door may be a big safety hazard.
- You will have to make sure that you have the necessary tools available for your garage door installation. These tools may include a power drill, screwdrivers, nails, hammer, among others. If you do not have these tools, you will have a problem in properly installing your garage door.
- There are a lot of specific steps involved in installing your garage door. Failure to follow even a single step may lead to a safety hazard.
