What is Essential for the Installation of Garage Doors?
When installing garage doors, the key is to have lots of patience and a little help from your friends. These carriage doors look fantastic, but they can be a bit tricky to install. The first step is removing the old garage doors by removing the hinges first and then the doors panel by panel. If the tracks are properly aligned and in good condition, then you will most likely be able to repurpose them. This will save a lot of money and time.
After you have sorted the tracks, the next step is guiding the sections into place. This is done by sliding them down the track. Slide the first section into place and then follow it with the next section. Be sure to secure the first two sections with the hinges. Repeat this process until you get to the last section. Keep this section off to the side. Make sure the upper tracks are in place and measure for them being parallel with diagonal measurements.
After this is done, attach the springs and install the motor. This will allow the door to freely slide up and down. If you notice the door does not easily slide up and down, this is symptomatic of the tracks not being aligned, so periodically check for smooth movement during installation. Once you are finished, install all the decorative hardware.
Are Carriage Garage Doors Durable?
Carriage garage doors are notable for their strength. With triple layer steel, these doors can handle all that life and mother nature throws at them. The reinforced door won’t bend and break unless there’s a massive impact, and these types of events are quite rare.
The other reason these garage doors are very durable is all the smaller parts. Whether it is bearings or hinges, these parts are built to last. The decorative hardware will also last a lifetime. Despite the exposure to the elements, these items will stand the test of time.
An Instant Upgrade
If your home needs some refreshing, carriage doors are the perfect way to make your home look a bit different. The carriage doors are evocative of an older style of architecture, and though carriage houses are a thing of the past, these doors always look elegant.
