Getting ready for a garage door installation ensures a smooth and efficient process. At Rocky Mountain Garage Doors, we want to help you prepare for your installation day. Here are some essential steps to follow:


  1. Clear the Area: Clear out any items, vehicles, or obstacles from your garage and the surrounding area. This ensures that our installation team has ample space to work and minimizes the risk of accidents or damage to your belongings.


  1. Remove Old Door and Hardware: If you’re replacing an existing garage door, remove the old door and hardware before our team arrives. This may involve disconnecting the opener, removing panels, and unscrewing hardware. If you’re unsure how to do this, our professionals can handle it for you.


  1. Provide Access: Ensure that our installation team has easy access to your garage. Remove any barriers, such as snow, ice, or debris, from the driveway and pathway leading to the garage. This helps expedite the installation process and ensures a smooth arrival for our team.


  1. Communicate Special Requirements: If you have any specific requests or requirements for the installation, communicate them to our team in advance. This could include issues like uneven flooring, limited headroom, or other unique circumstances that need to be considered during the installation process.


  1. Secure Pets and Children: For safety reasons, keep pets and children away from the installation area. This minimizes distractions and potential accidents during the installation process.


  1. Provide Power Access: Ensure that there is an accessible power outlet near the garage door installation area. This allows our team to connect and test the garage door opener without any delays.


  1. Be Available: Plan to be present during the installation or have someone available on your behalf. This allows our team to communicate any necessary information, address any concerns or questions, and ensure that the installation meets your expectations.


  1. Arrange for Temporary Storage: If you need a temporary storage solution for items usually kept in your garage, make arrangements in advance. This could involve renting a storage unit or finding alternative space within your home.


Following these preparation steps will help ensure a smooth and successful garage door installation from Rocky Mountain Garage Doors. Our team is dedicated to providing a seamless experience and ensuring that your new garage door meets your expectations. Contact us today to schedule your installation and let us handle the rest.
