Our latest project involved totally tearing down this existing garage door and installing a brand new one + an opener.
The owner wanted to actually use his garage door to park his car. A garage door that opens with the a push of the button was, of course, pretty necessary to achieve his goal.
The project was a big one because the existing doors were wood, and rotten in many places. We had to completely remove the door and the rotted areas before re-framing the opening.
The homeowner also wanted to access the garage with a regular walk through door, so we took that into consideration when we framed out the opening, and chose a door size.
With the doors framed out and the walk through door installed, the next step was installing the new door and then installing a new opener to make it work!
The also added insulation to this door to keep the garage regulated and comfortable.
The opener we went with was a LiftMaster 8550W. We install this opener quite often as it’s a solid choice. Affordable, great security features and WiFi abilities, so you can open and control your doors with a smartphone or tablet.
The project was a huge success. It not only looks way better with brand new doors and a coat of fresh paint but those rotted wood doors and other problems with the garage structure itself were resolved.
Now the homeowner can happily enjoy this new garage, park his car out of the elements, and control it all from his phone!
