When you are selecting a new garage door, it is a natural reaction to immediately start thinking about how you want it to look. Do you want solid garage doors, or would you like to have windows at the top? Would steel, metal, or wood garage doors look best with your home? Do you want the top of your new garage doors to be straight or have an arch? Are you thinking about ordering specialty garage doors to perfectly match your home?
While these are all important details that will need to be addressed at some point in the process, the very first step in ordering new garage doors is to measure your space. Each garage door is unique, so you need to get an accurate idea of what will really work in your home.
Fortunately, measuring for a new garage door is quick and easy. Just follow these basic steps:
Measure the space from the garage door opening to the back of the garage. This area is known as the backroom. Typically, if you will be implementing an electric garage door opener, you should have the door height plus 18 inches.
