New garage door installation is exciting and something to look forward to. New garage doors can really update the look of your home as well as the function. There are several things you can do as the homeowner to prepare your home and garage to help make the new garage door installation run smoothly, such as:
- Clean Up – You don’t need to clean your entire garage, but it is important to remove all belongings on either side of the garage door as well as the area where a car would be parked. Doing this will give the installation team ample room to hang the door and install any hardware.
- Move Cars – You will definitely want to remove your car from inside your garage as well as any cars parked directly in front of your garage.
- Move Kids and Pets – It is vital that kids and pets are kept away from the garage as well as the outside of the house during the garage door installation process. Garage doors weigh hundreds of pounds, and it is not safe to have pets or kids walking around in the area.
Ensuring that your garage is ready for the installation of your new garage doors will help the installers to remain safe and be able to work efficiently. It will also help to protect your belongings and family.
