There are several steps to replacing garage doors. It starts with learning about the various styles, so you can select the one that will give you the functionality and appearance you desire. The next step is scheduling the installation. You will generally have anywhere from a couple of days to a week or two depending on the availability of the one you have chosen. While you are waiting, you can prepare for the day that installation will be done. Here are a few tips that will help you get ready:
- Clear space- Garage doors are big and heavy, so the installers will need room to navigate as they remove your current garage door and install the new one. You might only need to pull your vehicles out of the garage on the day of installation. However, if you have a lot of things stored in your garage, you may need to move some of them out of the way.
- Parking- Have a plan in place for where you’ll park your vehicles during the installation. The installers will also need a place close to the garage to park their vehicle, so they can unload your new garage door.
- Children & pets- Both children and pets are naturally curious, so it is important to keep them at a safe distance during the installation of garage doors.
