How Do I Measure For a Garage Door?

In order to properly measure for a garage door and prepare for an effective door installation, you will need to focus on several different areas of your garage’s entryway. Measure the width of the opening, or the distance between the left and right sides of your garage. You should also measure the width of the areas that are beside the openings. Your next step is to measure the height of the entryway as well as the area between the top of the door and the ceiling. The final measurement you must record is the distance from the entryway to the rear of the garage. All of this information will be useful when the time comes to install a new door.
