Many customers have questions about the installation or repair of a garage door, opener or springs. The following information is given to help you understand the process and hopefully answer a few of your questions.
Installing your new garage door
The first step is to select the door you want. Your current door will be measured by our technician. These measurements will help identify the correct size door for your home.
When installing the new door, our technicians will release the old spring. The technician will then remove the old door and tracks. If the door is a segmented door, the segments will be removed one by one. All of the hardware will be collected and properly disposed of.
The new tracks will be installed so the new door will open and close easily. On the bottom door segment, weather stripping will be installed. Rollers will be installed on the new door segments and inserted into the tracks. The hinges will then be attached so the entire door will move as one unit.
At the top of the door, the brackets for the springs will be mounted. These are threaded onto the rods and the cables will be attached. When the door is opened, the tension places on the cable and holds it in place. The springs will then be adjusted by the technician. This will conclude your garage door replacement in Rockland County.
