Commonly, the use of nails instead of screws. This might seem small but creates a large difference. It happens due to low information on tools verification and identification. People need to be careful when selecting tools for their garage door. Have a manual of installation and then use the right tools.

Installing a garage door single handedly might seem economical but it is very dangerous. The springs of the door can cause severe injuries if handled by a single person. The weight of the garage door can’t be ignored. Don’t attempt to install the garage door alone and get some help.

Installing the motor centre

The misconception of installing the garage door motor off-centre that will provide more obstructions should be avoided. Both the motor and the lift assembly should be at the centre of the garage door. If it is ignored then the door will bind and buckle, in the end, causing damage to the garage door.

Ignoring the adjustments

Most people overlook the necessary adjustments before installing a proper door. Like, lifting mechanisms should be considered. However, one should check for the adjustments for installation to avoid future damages. Read the manual carefully and check.

Adjusting door in small space

No Steel door stiffener

A stiffener reinforces the door’s top panel. Sometimes, a door stiffener is avoided to save money or considered unimportant. Although, it is highly important for the proper functions of your garage door. Otherwise, the repeated jerks from the motor will make the panel to buckle.
