We Started Out By Reframing the Openings

Installing a new garage door properly requires having solid, flat interior jambs that are in good condition. This house had jambs in place that were too short to properly accommodate the bearing plates of the new torsion spring system we were installing. We probably could have made do, but we call ourselves “Doors Done Right” for a reason. We believe in doing top quality installations to ensure that our customers’ doors ard opners are installed neatly and safely for the long haul.

We also were installing somewhat thick doors and the concrete ledge at the bottom of the door would have become an issue with the old jamb thickness. We installed new 1″ x 4″ pine jambs, drilling pilots and fastening the tracks with extra long lag screws so that they went securely into the frame of the garage, not just the jambs.
