The Ultimate Guide to Precision Garage Door Installation Standards

When it comes to installing a new garage door or opener, getting the job done right the first time is essential. At Precision, we take pride in our installation standards, ensuring that every installation meets our rigorous quality specifications. In this guide, we’ll walk you through our detailed checklists for opener and door installations, giving you insight into the meticulous process our technicians follow to guarantee your satisfaction.

Opener Installation Standards:

  1. Anchoring with Precision: We use white 1 ¼ inch angle iron for anchoring, ensuring durability and stability that surpasses plumber’s strapping.
  2. Tidy Power Cord: Your opener’s power cord is neatly tie-wrapped, preventing any messy tangles or hazards.
  3. Smooth Functionality: We lubricate opener rails to ensure smooth operation and cut the J-bar for added safety.
  4. Safety First: Safety reversal is tested at a mere 2 inches to guarantee your family’s safety.
  5. Wall Buttons Placement: Wall buttons are installed at least 5 feet from the floor, with bell wire neatly run and stapled for a clean finish.
  6. Safety Eyes: New safety eyes are installed within the optimal range of 3-6 inches from the floor, securely bolted on and wired to prevent accidental disconnection.
  7. Thorough Clean Up: After installation, we leave your garage and driveway spotless, sweeping away any debris and ensuring doors and parts are free from grease and fingerprints.

New Door Installation Standards:

  1. Precise Installation: We pre-drill existing lumber to prevent splitting or loose, dangerous doors and adjust track flange brackets for a custom fit.
  2. Proper Functionality: Full panel reinforcement brackets are used for steel doors, and all moving parts are meticulously lubricated. Door balance is checked for smooth operation.
  3. Weather Tight Seal: Galvanized nails are used and recessed every 8 inches to prevent rusting or pull-offs. Stop moulding is caulked for added weather resistance, and bottom rubber is tightly sealed to the ground.
  4. Thorough Clean Up: Just like with opener installations, we ensure your garage and driveway are left spotless, and doors and parts are cleaned of any grease and fingerprints.

At Precision, we understand the importance of getting the job done right. Our meticulous installation standards guarantee that your garage door or opener will function flawlessly for years to come. Whether you’re in need of a new opener or a complete door replacement, you can trust Precision to deliver quality service and superior results every time.
