Here are the basic steps to keep in mind about how to install a garage door:
- Attach weatherstripping to the bottom edge of the first panel and then set the panel in the garage doorway. Drive a few nails into the door jamb so they wedge the door in place.
- Follow the garage door manufacturer’s instructions to assemble various track pieces.
- Install rollers, brackets and tracks alongside the perimeter of the door way.
- Install rollers into the second section—ask a friend or family member to help you lift the second section into place…caution – it’s heavy!
- Fasten the hinges between sections, then install the third section the same way you attached the second to the first.
- Install the horizontal and curved tracks by screwing the track hanger to the solid framing.
- Add the torque tube according to the manufacturer’s directions and then tighten all fasteners.
