Installation Tips from Garage Door Specialists
When installing a new garage door, be sure to remove the screws, bolts, brackets. Also, additional holding materials need to be replaced with a new one. However, if there is no garage door installed, get all the materials and tools needed to install a garage door first. For example available a screwdriver, bolts, screws, bars, chains, opener mechanism, sensors, brackets, cables, etc.
Not only would you have to disconnect everything if the door was in need of a repair. In fact, the interior of the garage door has a motor that is for both electric and manual switches. Also includes a long bar with an axle on both sides of the door left and right. When installing the door, make sure that these two sides both left and right are in complete balance and aligned. If they are not in alignment even for a centimeter, the entire garage will not open correctly. The garage, when viewed from the inside has many moving parts thus seeming difficult for some people at first glance.

Weight And Size Of A General Garage Door
As Goddard Garage Door specialists we know that a single-car door with insulation weighs from 90 pounds to as heavy as 160 pounds. A standard residential single car garage door itself is a medium-size door and can be in a square or rectangular format. In addition to being approximately 8 to 9 feet in width and 7 to 8 feet in height, the door’s size need to be measured in accordance with the dimensions of the house’s garage space. The garage space has to be big enough to hold the garage door and to have enough room to open and close the door without any damages.
Remember, the dimensions for the door need to be measured ahead of time and they need to be exact so that the door will fit perfectly. When installing the door, make sure that there is enough space to have the electronic or manual mechanism to function otherwise.
Always make sure you have the dimensions and the space needed to have a fully functional working garage.
