You want to be sure to install the garage screen door system far enough front so it does not affect the overhead garage door hardware. To measure correctly start from the top of the doorjamb to the concrete slab for your driveway below at each end. Next you want to measure between the side jambs at the top and bottom of the your garage door opening. Use a framing square to level and determine whether your side jambs are plumb and the bottom is level. If you have one side that is longer than the other or if the top and bottom measurements do not equal, we can fabricate the correct size for the track system into smaller dimensions. This way your frame will form a perfect rectangle if you're door opening does not.
On these garage screen doors the bottom track will rest directly on the slab for the driveway assuming the surface is level between the jambs. If not, you will have to shim the track yourself or level it with a cement-based floor leveling compound. After you secure the frame and install the screens you can install the ramp thresholds on both sides of the bottom track to hide the shimming which will form a smooth transition from your driveway to the garage floor.

You can assemble the predrilled frame with the pop rivets that come along with it. However please note that you will need your own rivet gun for this. Another piece of advice is that if you don't want to scratch the finish you should work on the lawn so things don't get scuffed up. You will join the top track and the side jambs with the wraparound flanges facing in the exact same direction. Be sure that your weep holes are in the bottom of the track and faced the same way so that heavy rain will drain outside.
The top flanges of your garage screen door or predrilled for mounting screws but you will still need to drill your own holes in the side tracks. For this task we recommend using an anti-skate, bullet point drill for the job. After you have joined and then predrilled for track sections you will need somebody to help you lift the unit into its place. The track itself is not having, however if you try to lift it on your own you could twist and week in the joints… and that would not be good.
Next you will install the track. You can loosely secure the middle of the Jamb with a single screw to hold it in place and then check it for plumb. Temporarily leveled the bottom track by placing some shims under the low-end and adjust the bottom track until it is completely perpendicular to the side jamb. With your frame correctly positioned and predrilled for mounting you only need to mark the holes and drill into the masonry with a Tapcon masonry bit. Lastly, you don't need to screw the bottom track into the actual pavement. Instead it is recommended you can it inside and outside with ramp thresholds anchored using 2 inch masonry screws. Be sure to fill all the space under the track with cement-based floor leveling compound or stacked small strips of aluminum regularly spaced so you don't have a rattling noise as a car drives over it.
