  1. Initial assessment: A professional installer will assess your garage space, take measurements, and discuss your preferences and requirements. If you haven’t already purchased a double garage door, our installer will help you select the right type, style, and material for your garage door.
  2. Removal of old door (if applicable): If you’re replacing an existing garage door, the old door will need to be removed. Don’t try to do this yourself! Garage door removal is a big job, and a wrong move can lead to major injuries. Instead, let the Martin Overhead Door installer dismantle the old door and dispose of it properly.
  3. Preparation of the opening: The installer will ensure that the opening where the new door will be installed is properly framed and structurally sound. Is your old garage door frame rotting or cracked in places? We’ll address that first. Any necessary adjustments or repairs to the framing will be made at this stage, to ensure that the new door has a safe setting.
  4. Installation of tracks and hardware: The tracks, rollers, and other hardware components necessary for the operation of the garage door will be installed. These components must be properly aligned and level, to ensure a smooth and efficient operation.
  5. Installation of panels/sections: The individual panels or sections of the garage door will be installed according to the manufacturer’s instructions. This may involve assembling the panels on-site or installing pre-assembled sections.
  6. Installation of an opener (if applicable): What’s a garage door without a reliable opener? Do you want to get wet when Indiana’s skies open unexpectedly?  If you’re installing a garage door opener, this will be done at this stage. The garage door opener will be mounted to the ceiling of the garage, and the necessary wiring will be connected to the door and power source.
