There are many reasons homeowners decide to replace their garage door; whether it’s to add curb appeal, gain a higher R-Value, or maybe it’s just more cost effective to replace it rather than repair it. In Roseville Minnesota we recently had a customer who had a very outdated garage door with a broken spring. This particular customer decided that it would be more cost effective to just start over and replace the garage door. After going over all the new garage door options, we picked out the perfect door that would also add great curb appeal to this Roseville customer’s home. The door that was picked out was from our Hormann Gemini Collection, more specifically, our Cottage Design with Cross Glass and Decorative Hardware. As you can see the final product turned out great and added some amazing curb appeal to this Roseville homeowner.
Is Garage Door Installation a DIY Project?
This is not a simple yes or no question. In most cases where customers are looking to install their own garage door it is to save money. If this is the reason you are considering installing a garage door yourself we recommend you at least get an estimate from professional company first. In most cases homeowners are surprised how affordable it is to have a professional do the installation. Not only will you be having a professional complete the project but you will also receive higher quality parts than from a department store. Garage door installations can also be very dangerous. Without proper tools, parts, and training, garage doors can cause serious injury. If you do plan to install your own garage door, here are some things to keep in mind.
- Be sure to take exact measurements of opening width/height and headroom
- Make sure to have all the right tools for the job
- Research and watch some “how to” videos prior to installation
- At time of door purchase, ask to upgrade to the Professional Torsion Spring System
