Peter and his wife, Jessica, bought a house with the intention of flipping it, or remodeling it to then immediately re-sell.
The garage door was TOAST! It was wood, falling apart, with rot and missing pieces. Even if they didn’t want to flip the house, the garage door needed some serious help!
In the picture below, the garage door when Peter and Jessica purchased the home.
The existing door and opening was actually an unorthodox size, so the project became more than just buying and installing a new garage door.
We had to adjust the frame of the garage door opening to a size that would fit a non-custom standard garage door. We planned on ordering a basic model of a single garage door. Something functional, safe, but that also fit their flip budget as well.
Peter and Jessica ended up choosing a UDT garage door. It’s short, white, steel backed and 25 gauge. This means the door is thick, which makes it durable and easy to maintain.
Below you can see what a difference a new garage door makes!
Here is a view of the new garage door from the inside:
We installed one brand new spring. We generally recommend installing a dual spring system, however with a single car garage door, one spring is more than enough for proper functioning.
Peter and Jessica are so happy with how the new garage door turned out. The manufacturer actually had this door in stock, so after 2 days of removing the existing system and re-framing the opening, we were able to quickly come in on Day 3 to install the brand new garage door!
Peter and Jessica listed the property a few months later after their entire renovation was complete, and we’re hoping it sells quickly! They did a great job!
