1. Remove the old garage door in case of renovation

Before the new garage door can be installed, the old door usually has to be removed. Caution is here, however, offered when expanding the gate. For example, if you change from a swing to a sectional door, you must also remove the wall and ceiling mounting so that the new components of the garage door can be attached. Depending on how the door is attached, the frame must then be lifted out of the masonry.

2. Measure the door opening

Accuracy in measuring is required for the gate to fit into the garage opening. In some cases, inclines have to be taken into account or the ceiling height of the garage is not enough to simply install a new door. Older garages often have special dimensions that must be taken into account and require special solutions. Another problem with measuring can be the wrong measure of the frame position. Once the frame is installed incorrectly, the garage door opens clumsily, makes noises when opening and closing or does not open at all. So that you do not have to worry about the right dimensions, trade partners take over the oversize. With this you can be sure to get the right garage door for your needs, which fits optimally into the garage opening during installation.

3. Find the right material for wall mounting

Before the garage door can be mounted, the correct screws, dowels and tools such as drills must be selected to match the wall type. Here it depends on whether the wall is made of concrete, for example, or whether it is made of steel. Since garage doors generate high tensile and compressive forces when opened or closed, it is particularly important that the guide rails be secured to the wall with the appropriate material.

4. Mount accessories such as automatic drives

Automatic drives are indispensable in today’s garage doors. In order for these to have space on the ceiling of the garage and form a unit with the gate, drives should be considered directly in the planning. Specialist partners can best judge which drives are suitable for which door.
