Yes, you will want to open your garage door, roll your Lifestyle garage screen down until it touches the floor, leaving it "kicked back" from the jamb. Then simply disconnect your garage door from the opener with the safety disconnect cord and gently roll the garage door down until it rests on the Lifestyle frame.

The SuperScreen Upgrade
An upgrade to a patented Super Screen is strongly suggested. It provides insect and pest protection, privacy, safety, and debris control. SuperScreen offers the homeowner extended durability and protection by incorporating superior tear resistance and tensile strength. It gives the homeowner a quality investment and trouble-free enjoyment, with lasting aesthetic appeal and low maintenance.
It provides the homeowner many years of worry-free durability and protection, by incorporating superior tear resistance and tensile strength. SuperScreen material is made of 17x20 PVC coated polyester that defies deterioration. In a simulated seven-year weathering test, SuperScreen lost only1% of its original strength. In fact, it remained 3 times stronger than new fiberglass screen NEARLY 900LBs!
The fiberglass screen material available today can become hard and brittle within 3 to 4 years, to the point it can be easily damaged by jumpy pets, flying objects (like a golf ball) or children at play. Within 6 to 7 years, with deterioration, a strong gust of wind can tear fiberglass screen to shreds.
Benefits of the SuperScreen
Durability: The strength of our fabric provides increased resistance to punctures and tears caused by falling debris as well as better protection from pet damage, thereby extending the useful life of the product.
UV Protection/Stable: The UV properties of our material increase the longevity of the fabric while addressing health and safety concerns by providing excellent solar protection. Air and light are able to pass through while blocking some of the damaging rays from the sun.
Mildew Resistant: Biocide is compounded directly into our extrusion coated yarn for extended mildew resistance.
Insect Protection: With the recent health concerns over insect-related illnesses, the tight weave of InsectProTex helps guard against the spread of disease.
