Replacing an Old Sliding Garage Door

Our customers have a lot of renovations to do on their new to them home. The home hasn’t been updated since the 1960’s so they have a lot of work cut out for them! 

When they made it to “replace garage doors” on their list, they gave us a call! 

The challenge for this project was to remove the center support that existed and reinforce the header in their garage. 

Once the structural work was taken care of, we were able to install their new garage door. 

They chose a 25 gauge garage door for durability and insulation. This will be nice in the hot Roseville summers!

We paired that with a Liftmaster 8355 belt drive opener for a quiet and low maintenance garage door opener. They are enjoying the upgrade of being able to control the opener from a smartphone and the automatic light that goes on when they enter the garage! 

We also installed plywood on the header of the garage and the sides of the garage to make it look more aesthetic. It helps structurally and also gives garage some character.

  

The results are amazing! The door is white instead of dark black, so the home looks fresher and cleaner than before. And the brand new door gives the home some great curb appeal and added value!

Plus, now that the door is more secure and updated, the homeowners can park inside and open the door with a push of a button instead of getting out and lifting up the door by hand. 

We also added an upper panel of windows that lets in natural light and gives the basic door a more custom and updated look.

The windows can be customized to match your preference, frosted or glazed for privacy, etc. They come in different shapes and styles as well.
