You should always leave residential garage door installation in the hands of experienced professionals. However, you can help the installation crew by ensuring the workspace is safe and organized. Here are a few simple ways to prepare for your residential garage door installation.
- First, remove your vehicles from the garage. Leaving them inside puts them at risk of harm and makes it harder for the installation crew to get the job done. Instead, park your vehicles somewhere where they’ll be far from the installation but close enough where you feel they are safe.
- Next, clear the overhead space in your garage as much as possible. The installation team will need the ceiling space cleared to ensure the garage door can fully open without hitting any fixtures. If you have anything hanging from your ceiling, take it down before the install.
- If your new garage door has wall-mounted components, such as a keypad, choose possible locations for these items with your installers before work starts. They’ll help you choose the best site based on your preferences or help you find a viable position if your choices aren’t workable.
- Lastly, secure your garage to keep people out. During installation, only the garage door professionals should be onsite. It’s not a safe place for curious kids or pets to play or well-meaning adults to watch up close. Keep any house-connected entrances locked for the duration of the installation. You can help the installation team tremendously by keeping an eye out for anyone who might wander in.
