This Habitat for Humanity “deconstruction” video demonstrates an efficient and safe method for removing an overhead garage door (either single- or double-wide.) and the electric opener. The required tools are: one (or two) short step ladders, a socket wrench set, (and maybe an end wrench wrench set), and screwdriver(s). We also recommend wearing gloves to protect from any possible sharp edges, and to avoid the dirty grease which is always on the chain (or screw) of the opener. The primary safety issues are: 1) risk of injury due to lifting / falling; 2) stored-energy of large springs. The average time to remove a garage door (with a two-man crew) is 20-25 minutes.
