HOW TO MEASURE
When taking the measurements for your garage door it’s important not only to remember most garage doors require a fixing sub frame of some description, and that has to be taken in to consideration with the measurements, but also manufacturers ordering size references can vary from one to another.
Different garage door types use different criteria. If you’re looking for a new garage door, particularly a roller or sectional door then the most basic measurements to take down are:
Width and Height of the existing brickwork opening (without the frame and door)
Width and Height of existing sub frame if you are leaving it in place (Timber frames only) for the new door to fix to, providing it is wide enough.
Internal Headroom (measuring the clear space from underneath the lintel to the ceiling)
Internal Return Widths (the widths of the faces showing either side when you stand in your garage looking out)
It’s important that you make a note of any obvious obstructions in the garage and you can then begin looking for an appropriate garage door with your measurements at hand.
