    Follow below points to measurement

    Measure the width and height of your door opening in feet and inches to determine the garage door size you need.

    Measure area labeled sideroom left and right - a minimum 3-3/4" is required on each side for installation of the vertical track for a standard extension spring.

    Measure area labeled headroom which is the distance between the top of the door opening .

    Measure area labeled backroom  is measured from the garage door opening toward the back wall of the garage.
