Re-Framing a Building for Garage Door Installation

Our video series on garage doors, garage door openers, service, repair and more is back with Dan and Keith. This week, they take a look at an interesting project, watch the video to learn more.

A Two Car Garage with Different Garage Doors

Before Photo, Two Car Garage with One Swing Door and One Overhead Garage Door, Both Doors need to be replaced

One of the things that's sort of unique about this particular garage door here is the challenge Door Pros is facing in installing a door on that left side. This is a two car garage, meant for two vehicles to park into. The owner had only used half for that purpose. The right side of this two-door garage is an overhead door, but the left is not. It's a swing door.

Transforming the Swing Door to an Overhead Garage

Because it's a swing door, it's not framed out for any garage door overhangs at all. Door Pros went in and removed those slabs and then we frame the opening to match the right-hand side of the door that has an overhang. 

We put in an overhead door for the convenience factor to pull a car in that side now. We framed it up where they can now paint that red and white to be identical to the right-hand side. 

Garage Door Pros for Your Unique Garage Needs

If you are experiencing this strange scenario of a garage or shed that is not built for an overhead garage door (that is more convenient as a driver), come see Garage Door Pros. We'll actually frame it up if we have to, to make that garage door fit right for you. Framing may take longer than a two hour install, just to get the everything fit right. But Garage Door Pros does it all.

Wooden Garage Doors

When it comes time to replace your garage door you have many options. It can be tough to decide between the color, material, and finish for your garage door. We've seen an upward trend in wooden garage doors lately. If you have your eyes set on a nice wood finish garage door, then look no further than the local experts at Garage Door Pros. Are the Garage Doors Made of Wood? A true wooden garage door doesn't really make any sense to install. Wooden doors are very heavy, expensive and to run maintenance repairs you're looking at a pretty penny. When you're dealing with wood and living in Northeast Ohio where weather conditions are unpredictable, a full wood garage door may become warped or weathered.  If you want a wooden look for your garage door, we recommend using a steel garage door that has a wood tone. If you choose to go with Garage Door Pros, you will also get a lifetime guarantee.  If the wood tone finish isn't up your alley, we also offer what is called a plank door. It is a steel door, with a full warranty on it, it's just made to look like planks.  Contact Your Leading Garage Door Experts Garage Door Pros is located in Medina, OH.
