How Garage Doors Are Made

Garage doors are a big part of your home that is used daily to gain access to your home. They can be made of many different types of materials and customized to meet your needs. Our team at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair is here to teach you about how garage doors are made.  

Garage Door Panels

Most residential garage doors are made up of 4 panels. If made from steel or vinyl the panels are stamped and molded for the appropriate style. Once the panels are assembled they are injected with polyurethane liquid that expands inside the panel to make a solid core inside the garage door. 

Wood doors are more expensive but offer the most style flexibility. Wood can be customized to any style and painted or stained whatever color you want. Each panel is constructed with a wood frame and filled with a sheet of polystyrene insulation. Then sheets of exterior plywood are added to the outside part of the panel and the panels are cut to the correct lengths. 

Hardware Holes and Customization

Once the base panels are built, a template is used to drill holes in the proper location. This is where the hinges and other hardware will be placed during the installation process. The weatherstripping will also be added to the bottom panel of the door to keep water from entering your garage. 

If windows are ordered, a router will be used to cut a hole out in the appropriate spots and windows and the window trim will be added to the panel. If there are any decorative pieces, these will be added at this time as well. 

The Installation Process

Once the manufacturer has built the pieces to your garage door it is time to be shipped to the dealer. After it is received you will get a call so that you can make an appointment for the installation. When the garage door technician arrives at your home, they will assemble the door and install it for you. 

Garage doors have many pieces that work together so that it runs smoothly so it is best to have a professional do this step for you.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
