Pre-Installation Check

Once you finalize your purchase, your dealer will evaluate the site. This will help your technician understand the garage area better to ensure you're receiving the best installation service possible. After inspecting the garage, your dealer will schedule an installation date based on what works best for your schedule.

Wayne Dalton Tips to Prepare for Your Installation

Here are our three need-to-know tips to ensure the installation process runs smoothly:

  1. Make sure you have cleaned the area around your old garage door before the installers arrive. You should remove anything that may get in the way, like your tools, equipment, storage boxes and other personal belongings. The installation site should be clear of debris and have room to work on a flat, solid surface.

  2. Ensure the installers have electrical access, preferably a direct power source, as electrical cords can pose safety hazards.

  3. Remember that you need to be present during the installation, so mark the date on your calendar to guarantee you will be ready for your new Wayne Dalton garage door when the time comes.

Before the Installer Leaves

Following the installation, confirm that your remote is programmed, the door operates smoothly and you have the user manual. Before your technician leaves you to enjoy your new beautiful Wayne Dalton garage door, don't forget to take full advantage of the installer being onsite to ask any questions you may have.
