How to Install a Garage Door

Equipment / Tools that you have to arrange include Wrench set, Hammer, Drill, Bubble level, Step ladder, Safety glasses, Garage door, 8-foot wide by 7-foot high (four sections), Nails, 3-inch, and Shims.

First of all, remove the garage door and prepare the opening by making sure that the garage door header is level, and the sides are vertical. Prepare the bottom door section with rubber weatherstripping and pull out the bottom section. After pulling it out, keep it under the blankets and locate the two metal brackets on both the left and right sides. Attach the metal brackets with provided screws and locate two of hinges, then connect them to the other long edge of the door section.

Install door sections by keeping the accurate level of the garage door and if you observe disturbance in the level the place a shim on one end and attach hinges to the second section’s long top edge. Stack the second section on to the first section and attach hinges to the bottom of second section and do same practice with the remaining sections.
