Garage Door Service Installation

Installing a garage door is a process that needs knowledge and careful decision-making. In this article, we’ll be discussing the basics of garage door service installation. This will include what to look for, the steps to installation, and some frequently asked questions concerning the topic. Gr8 Garage Doors’ Installation services are available to all budgets and old or new homes. Our priority is your satisfaction.

Our installation process here at Gr8 Garage Doors can be split into three distinct sections: pre-installation, installation, and post-installation.


Before installing a garage door, there are a few things that need to be done.

Selecting the product – This is the most time-consuming step in installing a garage door. There are several things that need to be taken into consideration when selecting the product. The first is the budget. The product needs to be within the customer’s budget. The next thing is the location. Depending on where the customer lives, the selection starts getting narrowed down. There are garage doors best suited for warmer climates and garage doors best suited for colder climates.

Once fully aware of the options available to you, then you can choose the type of door based on your style preferences and the requirements of the home or business. This could be a steel door, wood door, aluminium door, fibreglass door, vinyl door, copper door, composite garage door, carriage house garage door, and many more options. Our selection process entails considering these factors because they determine the options available for our clients. We are very familiar with the top brands, and style choices of garage doors. We are also in contact with the best suppliers in our area.

Inspection – Once the product selection has been concluded, an inspection will take place. This inspection will be conducted by the garage door service installation company handling your installation. This will entail taking measurements and noting how the installation will be done. It is important that you are present for the inspection.


This section of the process takes the least amount of time. Installation is usually done in less than a day because most of the technical work is done before the installation process actually begins. This process includes;

  1. Removal of the old garage door.
  2. Installation of the new garage door.
  3. Setting up a garage door opener.
  4. Connecting the garage door to the previously existing garage door opening system. If there isn’t one, then one will be installed.
  5. Testing the safety reverse feature and ensuring the infrared sensors are functional.
  6. Cleanup of the site.
  7. A final walkthrough where any of your questions will be answered.


Once the installation is complete, we provide you with further support. This includes an installation warranty and an offer for maintenance services. Maintenance is important because it reduces the number of repairs and increases the lifespan of your garage door.
