Hammer, drill, measuring tape, wood jambs, screwdriver and saw horses are the materials and tools used when installing a garage door. Acquisition of tools and materials result to the process of garage door installation. Measuring, attaching hinges and handles is the beginning of the door installation process. These areas include headroom, backroom and door opening height and width which are measured. To obtain the perfect installation the headroom, backroom and door opening height and width need to fall in a certain range.
When the door area are measured, temporary stops are then attached by flushing the inside edge of the door jamb. Attaching of the door stops is done by flushing wood jambs and also by using saw horses in order to lay the bottom piece of the new door and attaching any weather stripping. Then after all that is done, attaching of any hinges and lift handles to the piece is done.

After nail hammering is done installation of the hinges follows suit and the process is repeated. Installing the rollers is the next process after all sections are secured. So as to secure the track brackets the rollers are placed in the assembled track using a roller support system. Friction may be resulted when placing rollers to tightly against each other leading to door damage. In the process of door installation securing of tracks and attaching of springs is done. In order to install the curved and horizontal pieces, vertical tracks are secured against the jambs.
