How New Garage Doors Get Installed
They go up, they go down. While the function of a garage door is pretty easy to grasp, the installation is another thing entirely. The reason for that is because a working garage is a delicate balance of different parts that work together to repeatedly lift a heavy door. Here is the garage door installation process in a nutshell:
1. Release the tension
Through a series of pulleys, cables and most notably the spring, garage doors are lifted and lowered for a lifespan of about 10,000 cycles. And if your garage door’s failure is related to something other than a broken spring, that means there’s still tension in the system which will need to be released.
The first step in the process of installing your new garage door is to release the tension from your old one, which creates an environment that’s safe to work in.
After the workspace has been designated safe and work-ready, we’ll get started on taking apart your old garage. If there are tracks or other components we can keep, we’ll maintain as much of those parts as we can.
Next comes the fun part, installation. Every garage setup is a little bit different and depending on what parts you maintain, and what parts you’re replacing, the length of installation time may vary a bit.
Throughout its life, every garage door needs to be balanced. And the initial balancing of yours is arguably the most important one. Done wrong, your garage might lock in place the next day. Done right, and you’ll be amazed at how smoothly your door opens, closes and stays in place.
5. Quality Assurance
After everything is in place, it’s time for a systems check. This is the point at which we make sure everything is working as expected. The motion, the motor, the safety features and the remote controls. The best time to catch a problem, is while we’re still there.
