Our Garage Door Framing Installation Process
After the draining yet exciting process of your garage door installation has been completed, you are just halfway through total victory. The next step in the garage door installation process is to install a frame for the rough opening of your garage to fit your spectacular new garage door. Your new garage door should fit in the opening of your garage snugly. The garage door framing also helps you install other components of your garage door system, such as the garage door tracks and the garage door springs, which are crucial to the complete operation of your garage door.
Supplies and Measurements
The first step followed by our professionals is to make all measurements for your garage door. The length of each side of the rough opening and the garage’s floor to ceiling height will have to be noted down to install the required framing material. Your garage door professional will also ask you if you prefer PVC door jambs or a wooden frame for your garage door framing.
A tip to note while installing your garage door is to ensure your garage door is smaller than the rough opening of your garage for the proper fitting of your garage door. The width of the material you use will establish how large the garage’s opening is after installing the garage door frame.
Installation of the Head Jamb
The next step in the process is to install the head jamb of your garage door. The head door jamb of the garage door frame is the most important part of the framing. Door jambs are the planks of wood installed on the sides and the top header of your door. The top header is known more commonly as the head jamb.
The head jamb is installed before installing the side jambs just so that the side jambs can rest flush against it. Our professionals measure the header as per the horizontal opening of the garage. The most important tip to follow when installing the garage door header is that its thickness should cover the difference between the garage door height and the garage’s rough opening.
Addition of the Side Jambs
After the head jamb has been installed perfectly, our garage door experts will cut down lumber to match the new height of the garage opening. Our professional will install these garage door side jambs using framing nails. Double side jambs are also used in cases where you need to support the extra weight. After the door jambs have been installed completely, the garage door opening will have the same dimensions as the garage door.
Attachment of the Center Bracket Framing
The last step to the process is measuring the distance between the top of the header installed to the ceiling. Our expert will cut a piece of lumber to center it above the header. After this, they will use this piece to attach the center bracket of your garage door spring system.
