    Hi all,

    I have been asked to quote for fitting a up-and-over garage door.

    Are these generally easy to fit? If yes, then is it a 2 man job as I am a one-man-band?

    I spoke with a chippy neighbour and he reckons they are dead easy.

    Any thoughts appreciated.

    Spend a little time reading the instructions and identifying all the parts.

    Then it's a doddle.

    as long as the opening is the right size, it about the easiest job there is!
    the last one i did was as simple as fitting 3 brackets either side, lift the door into place from the inside (sat on the piece of batten either side so its not hard on the concrete) mark the holes on the pillars, take door away, drill 6 holes, fit door, job done, shouldnt be any more then 2 hours work but u will need a hand lifting the door.
    good luck with that
