confirmed that the door measured appropriately for the opening. The next step involved one worker pre- assembling some of the track components while another worker installed trim along the door jamb. Working in tandem, the team had both doors successfully installed in just a few hours. Here’s an overview of the steps involved.
STEP BY STEP
First step is to unpack and inventory the components.
The installers divided the work, with one installing the trim that will seal the air gap surrounding the door.
Another worker preassembled the door tracks that will mount to the wall.
The garage doors are assem- bled one panel at a time, working from the ground up. A perfectly level installation is critical for proper door operation. (No shims were required here.)
Each panel is fitted with hinges and roller brackets.
The vinyl rollers slip into the roller brackets to give the door smooth travel along the tracks.
With the rollers in place on the lower door panels, the door tracks are then positioned around the rollers.
Make sure the tracks are perfectly plumb for proper door operation.
The tracks must be mounted securely to the wall. Note the wood shim behind the bracket, which keeps the mounting surface in a solid, even plane.
The door panels are attached to each other with a strong center hinge.
