How to install garage doors.
Installation of garage doors is normally done by professionals or technicians. However, most of the tasks of replacing and installing a new garage door can be accomplished at home simply by having the necessary knowledge on the various materials and parts involved. The first thing you will need to do is release the spring tension and joining the locking pliers to the spring. You are then supposed to install steel rod into the holes located in the winding cone of the spring. Ensure that the rods are firm as you loosen the screws holding the winding cone. The next step involves detaching the existing garage door by first removing the top panel and the hinges underneath it.
When installing a door panel especially for a two-car door, ensure that it does not bend at the center by placing a strengthening bar on top of the door panel. Ensure that the bar is properly centered before drilling screw holes. You are then supposed to join axle supports between the top panels and the bottom panel after attaching hinges. Ensure each of the panels you place is upright and in place by driving a nail into the wall right next to the panel. The wheeled axis is to be placed into the side hinges before installing the track. The brackets should be in the right position on the vertical track pieces. Ensure that the door cable is joined to the hook located at the panel axle at the bottom before attaching the bracket at the bottom. If you are not a professional, it is advised that you use the instruction menu to assemble all the pieces of the spring to the track. Bolt all the tracks loosely until the door is installed properly.
The support of the spring should be attached to the top center of your door space. Spring installation involves attaching the spring anchors and the spring locking cone which should be tight enough to stand high tension. The next processes involves installing the pulleys and to each end of the torsion rod. The spring should also be attached with cables on both sides. The final step includes tightening the springs.
These are the few simple steps that can easily guide you in installing your garage door. You can however gather more details from the instructions booklet that comes with the doors.
