Introduction: In the world of home improvements, one often overlooked but crucial aspect is the garage door. It not only serves as a functional entry point to your garage but also plays a significant role in the overall aesthetics and security of your home. In this case study, we'll explore how a homeowner's decision to revamp and upgrade their garage doors brought about remarkable improvements, thanks to the expertise of Laramie Garage Doors.

Background: A customer was keen on preserving the unique aesthetic of their redwood garage doors but wanted to enhance their functionality. The doors weren't flush with the concrete, the rollers were worn out, and the garage doors weren't balanced, causing them to operate unevenly. Additionally, manually opening the doors was causing strain and inconvenience for the customer.


  1. Uneven doors due to the concrete not being leveled.

  2. Worn-out and noisy garage door rollers.

  3. Unbalanced garage doors leading to an uneven operation.

  2. Custom-building a wood shim to level out the uneven door.

  3. Adding a new nail-on bottom seal and vinyl weather sealing for energy efficiency.

  4. Rebalancing the extension springs and adding safety cables for safety.

  5. Replacing all garage door rollers and hinges for smooth operation.

  6. Performing an 'Annual Lube and Balance' for hardware longevity and efficiency.

  7. Installing Lift Master WIFI Garage Door Openers for automated and secure operation.

Results: After the upgrade, the customer was thoroughly impressed with the outcome. The garage doors operated better than ever, and the added automation and security features provided peace of mind.
