We recently completed this awesome project in Midtown, Sacramento. Our customer’s old stand alone garage door had a rotten wood garage door that only opened manually, and barely opened at that.
He wanted to use his garage for it’s intended function. That meant he wanted to remove those old wood doors and install a brand new garage door and garage door opener. He also wanted to add a walk through door so he could access the garage without having to open the big door.
Here is what his door looked like before we got started:
Project: Remove Rotten Wood Garage Door
The project began with demo! We removed the old rotten wood garage door. All of the framing around the old door was in a bad shape and rotting as well. So we got to work removing that and just generally cleaning up the space to prep it for the construction.
Once that was done, we were able to re-frame the opening to properly fit the garage door we chose, as well as frame out the walk through door.
Here is the project after the initial framing:
Once we completed the framing, we were able to install the brand new walk through door! Looks great, right?
The last part of the project is of course the most dramatic, the installation of the brand new door! The door he chose is a great door, and we also insulated it to help with temperature control in his garage.
Once the door was installed and looking good, last step was all the finishing! We textured and painted the exterior.
Lastly, we installed the garage door opener to make this baby go up and down with ease! Our customer chose the LiftMaster 8550W opener. The opener has some great features including WiFi connectivity so you can control it with your tablet or smartphone.
