A new garage door can give your home a facelift, giving it a brand new look that is sure to enhance your home’s aesthetic. It can also increase your property’s value and your return on investment. Hiring a door installation service can be costly, especially if you have a limited budget. However, if you are a handy homeowner, you can install your garage doors without the professionals!
The first step is to release the tension in the garage door. Ensure you are cautious when doing this because a slight mistake could result in damages or personal injuries.
Use adjustable pliers and clamp to release the tension of the torsion spring.
The second step is disconnecting the door from the opener by pulling on the red emergency release handle. The third step is to remove sectional door panels from top to bottom until you detach the old door from the frame.
You should then install sectional door panels for the new door. Replace each old panel while ensuring that the groove of the top panel sits firmly on the edge of the lower panel. Click the link above for a detailed guide with visual illustrations of installing your garage door.
