If you are one of those guys that love to do a bit of work at home and you have some basic tools ready, the installation of a garage door will be an easy task. It might sound a bit complicated, but setting up your garage door is not that difficult at all, even for people who are not the DIY types. As mentioned, all you need is a set of basic tools, a friend or neighbor for a little assistance and the instructions manual.
Start with the manual, so you can have an outline of all of the processes that await you. This way you will always be on the right track, and you will know what goes next and what parts you need next. A good following step is to create an inventory of all the parts you have at your disposal. Organizing them into groups is also a good thing because you will not get them mixed up. And it will be much easier to notice if something is missing.
Besides the parts, you will need tools. Gather all the usual tools for such a job: a hammer and some nails, a drill and some screws. A ladder will also be necessary. In fact, you might want to have two of them: for you and your assistant.
