Garage doors are an essential aspect of any home - they not only provide security to your vehicles and possessions but also add aesthetic value. When it comes to installing a new garage door, you want to be sure that the job is done right. That's why it's essential to find a professional and trustworthy team with experience in delivering quality installations. Our team at Love Garage Doors offers expert installation services for residential and commercial clients alike, so you can expect a professional result that meets your expectations. However, before the installation takes place, it's essential to understand what to expect during the process. This article will explore what to expect when installing your garage door, from the initial consultation to the final completion.


Consultation and Assessment

The first step in the garage door installation process is a consultation with a professional installer. When you hire Love Garage Doors for your installation needs, our experienced team will assess the existing structure of your garage door opening and discuss any potential issues or concerns with you before beginning the work. We will discuss various aspects, such as the style, material, insulation, color, and design options available for your garage door. We will also take measurements of your garage opening to ensure a proper fit for the new door.


Selection and Purchase

Once the consultation is complete, you will have the opportunity to select the garage door that best suits your preferences and budget. Our team will provide recommendations based on your needs and guide you through the selection process. After you have made the final decision, the purchase will be arranged, and you may need to make a deposit to secure your order.



Before the scheduled installation date, there may be some preparations you need to make. First, remove all items from the wall or ceiling area near where the tracks will be installed. If there are large items stored in your garage that cannot easily be moved, use tarps or plastic sheets to cover them to prevent dust and debris from settling on them during installation. Additionally, make sure any cords or wires running along the walls or ceilings are securely fastened away from where the track will run. Clear a 3-foot radius around each side of the doorway to give yourself plenty of space for the door to open and close without obstructions. Doing so will ensure a smooth and successful installation process.


Installation Day

Installation day should be a straightforward and stress-free process. Make sure to have all the necessary tools for the installer and keep your vehicle, bikes, or other items away from the garage area. Before the installation begins, take some time to review the new garage door with our team —they'll walk you through any features or details that need special attention and discuss safety operation procedures.


The installation itself can take anywhere from two to four hours, depending on the complexity of your project. Be sure to allow extra time in case adjustments need to be made during installation. During this time, it's essential to remain available in case questions arise, or more information is needed.


Installation Process

After removing the old garage door, our installation team will start assembling and installing the new door. They will carefully fit the tracks, install the panels, and securely attach the springs and cables. Depending on the style and features of the door, they may also install additional components such as windows, insulation, or opener systems. Throughout the process, the team will ensure that the door is properly aligned and operates smoothly.


Safety and Testing

Once the garage door is installed, Our team will conduct a comprehensive safety inspection. This includes checking the balance of the door, aligning the safety sensors, and testing the automatic reverse mechanism to ensure that it functions correctly. They will also test the operation of the door manually as well as with the remote opener system.


Cleanup and Demonstration

After completing the installation and testing, the team will perform a thorough cleanup of the installation area, removing any debris or packaging materials. They will also provide you with a demonstration of how to operate your new garage door, including the proper use of the remote control system and any additional features. Feel free to ask any questions or seek clarification during this demonstration.


Warranty and Maintenance

Before our installation team leaves, they will provide you with information regarding the warranty for your new garage door. It's essential to understand the terms and conditions of the warranty, as well as any recommended maintenance tasks, to ensure the longevity and performance of your door. This may involve regular lubrication, checking the springs and cables, and periodically inspecting the safety features.


Follow-Up Support

In the event of any concerns or issues following the installation, Love Garage Doors will provide follow-up support. This can include answering questions, addressing minor adjustments, or arranging for service calls if necessary. It's crucial to maintain open communication with the installation team and promptly report any issues you may encounter.
