GARAGE DOOR INSTALLATION IN CALGARY: HOW TO PREPARE A GARAGE FOR A NEW GARAGE DOOR

The garage door makes up a good portion of the exterior of your home. So, if you’re deciding to replace it, it is best to leave it to the professionals, as the installation of a garage door can be considered an intensive project for most. If the professionals are taking care of the install, what does the homeowner need to do to prepare for the installation?

 

Below are some tips on how to prepare for a garage door installation in Calgary.

 


MAKE SOME SPACE

To ensure a smooth installation, it is best that the garage is organized and decluttered. It may surprise some that the new garage door is built from the inside. So, the appropriate space is required for the install team to work safely. Ideally, five feet from the opening to the back of the garage is sufficient.



ENSURE THAT THERE IS ELECTRICITY

When the garage door installation is complete, the team will reconnect the existing garage door opener. So, it’s important that the electrical is in working order in the garage to allow the team to do their final checks and tests.


 

MAKE SURE YOU'RE ACCESSIBLE

While a garage door installation can, more or less, be carried out without the homeowner’s presence, it’s still recommended that the homeowner be available during the installation. At the very least, you should be able to chat by phone, incase there are any questions or concerns.

 

KEEP CHILDREN AND PETS AWAY FROM THE INSTALLATION AREA

The last way to prepare for a new garage door is to keep children and pets out of the garage for everyone’s safety. The installation involves a number of heavy items and tools, so it’s best to keep loved ones away from that area.
