If your garage project requires any carpentry work, like converting from swing doors, framing door openings or replacing rotted door jambs, Skillman Doors can handle that too. A Skillman Doors representative will let you know what woodwork, if any, is needed and prepare a written price agreement prior to installing your new door.
