Make the right garage door decisions
Residential garage doors usually come in similar sizes but you will find differences among manufacturers and you will certainly have to take different measurements based on what type of door you will install. Don't forget that there are different types of doors in order to serve the requirements of different properties. Not all homes meet the requirements for the installation of sectional doors! Each door would leave a different space at the entrance, so that you can drive through your car. You must make sure that your vehicle today or the car you are planning to get in the near future will actually pass through or all your efforts and money will vanish into thin air.
Both width and height matters, especially for a roll up or swing hung door. The space available in the ceiling will certainly matter for the installation of an overhead door or you will suddenly realize that the panel doesn't open all the way due to a limited roof. Hence, measuring with mathematical precision the dimensions of your garage, the opening of the entrance and the driveway is absolutely necessary. Otherwise, you will be faced with serious problems and pay the door double.
