Mr. Victor Longpont hired my services to remove his garage door that had become damaged after a bad rain storm.
This post shows the nine steps on how to remove a damaged garage door.
Step 1: Fig.1 shows the the tools required to remove this door.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the reciprocating blade that will be used to cut the nails and screws. Use the longest blade that your local warehouse store sells and make sure it's a metal blade. The metal blade teeth will not be so rough and the blade should have many teeth per inch. For example the blade on the drill box was purchased at Harbor Freight. The blade is a 12-inch reciprocating saw blade.
Step 3: Fig.3 shows the damaged door that will be removed.

Step 8: Fig.9 show the door jamb has been removed and the 2x4 studs are showing around the stucco walls. It's the wood stubs that will provide support for the new metal door.
Step 9: Fig.10 show the alarm wire sensor that will be needed to be placed into the new door. It's important not to cut these wires.
