When your garage door has reached the end of its lifespan, a repair is never an option. Instead, the only solution is a garage door replacement.
For starters, a new garage door installation is a technical and essential home improvement project that should never be a DIY project, especially for a beginner.
There are so many potential dangers involved for both you and the occupants of your home. You may be saving on installation costs but at the risk of your safety and your warranty.
For this reason, it is best to trust professionals. We’ll walk you through what to expect from the professionals during the installation process.
Garage door installation process
A handful of steps are included in the installation process, and it requires precision, technical knowledge, and attention to detail.
The process usually begins with an inspection for any potential obstructions and measurement of your garage door, especially if you want a custom design.
After an evaluation of your garage door, the contractor will set an installation appointment date.
On the expected date, the old door is removed, then the installation begins. And because it’s a replacement; the process will also include:
- Spring installation
- Roller installation
- Installation of safety sensors
- And installation of openers and remote system
Once the replacement is complete, the installation company will also clean the site and do a final walkthrough to ensure everything is set.
How much does the replacement cost?
This kind of project does not have any set prices because of the several factors in play, such as the material of the garage door, operation costs, size, style, and labor costs.
This means the company you hire will influence the overall costs. So, make sure to get different quotes from different companies to gauge the average.
