You bolt board it. Use 5/8 in plywood. Run a 2x4 across the bottom of the boarding to secure the plywood better, then run 2 2x4's down the middle like you would a window. Use 4 bolts per piece of plywood. Hope this helps.

Good advice for one of the personal entrance doors.


Hes talking about one of the roll up doors, 12x9.

You'll have to bid to frame up the door with 2x4s and the correct thickness of plywood per regs.

I was talking about a 12x9 door. You are right it is 3/4" plywood, my mistake. Safeguard makes you call from site to secure garage doors in that condition. We usually get 250 to board a 12x9 and 300 for a 16x7

How do you bolt board a 12x9 door? Please explain.

And if you are only getting $250 where is the labor for you and your guys coming from?
You can't have much left over after materials.

Ill have to post pics when I find one we've done. In the last year, we've only boarded 2 garage doors. We maybe make $50 after everything, but we have other stuff that gets done at the property as well.

This is the outside view. This was a 16x7 but we would cut wood and make it fit for a 12x9

Interesting, I learned some thing new today.
I've always seen the garage doors framed up, 2x4s on 2' centers and plywood on the outside.

Good chance this way is faster.

I'm glad I could show someone with as much experience as you something!

This garage has a slight rise on the edge of the concrete. That's what the plywood is resting against on the bottom. If there isn't a rise, you just run a 2x4 across the bottom, and screw it into the frame on both sides. This way takes about 45 minutes, and is very secure. The wood doesn't reach all the way across, so we cut a piece of plywood to fill the gap. (About 12") we used screws to secure it, and we made sure the screws were screwed in from the inside. Oh, and it looks nice too.
