The Garage Door Buying Process: What to Expect

Perfection doesn’t happen overnight! And while it’s true that buying a new garage door is a process, it doesn’t have to be painful! Below is a brief outline of what you can expect when buying a garage door with Precision. You should plan on this process taking 3-9 weeks from the initial consultation to final installation. Please note that COVID-19 has led to extreme delays with garage door manufacturers throughout the industry. Your Door Designer will be able to provide you with an updated installation date estimate during your meeting as we navigate this unprecedented time.

Order your new garage door

Once we place the order for your garage door, it typically takes between 3 and 9 weeks for your door to arrive in our warehouse, depending on the manufacturer and door customization you choose. We may also request that you approve the manufacturer’s drawings to ensure everything is to your specifications.
