How do I measure my garage door?
- Measure existing door width and height in feet and inches. This determines the size of door needed. The rough opening should be the same size as the door.
Width: ________________ Height: _________________
Measure for sideroom: 3-3/4″ is required on each side for installation of the vertical track for standard extension or torsion springs, or EZ-SET® Torsion Spring. 5-1/2″ is required for EZ-SET Extension Spring.
Left Sideroom: _____________________________________
Right Sideroom: ____________________________________
- Measure area labeled “headroom”—distance between the top of the door opening (“jamb header”) and the ceiling (or floor joist). 10″ is required for standard installation of extension springs and EZ-SET Extension Spring, 12″ on standard torsion springs and EZ-SET Torsion Spring. 14″ of headroom required for Lodgewood™ Collection doors. If you have restricted headroom, special hardware is available. Low headroom hardware is available to reduce requirement to as low as 4-1/2″ (minimum with standard extension spring or EZ-SET Extension Spring). EZ-SET Torsion Spring low headroom requirement is 9-1/2″. Note: If door height extends above the opening, the headroom measurement should be adjusted accordingly.

- Measure area labeled “backroom”. Distance is measured from the garage door opening toward the back wall of the garage.
Common garage door sizes include 8′ wide x 7′ high, 9′ wide x 7′ high and 16′ wide x 7′ high.
