How to measure your standard garage door size

  • To measure your existing garage door, you need to take a measuring tape and measure from the bottom of the door to the top of the door – Most common doors measure: 6’10” in height. Then you need to measure the width, most common width are 8′.

Custom Door Sizes

  • If for some reason, your existing garage door isn’t a standard garage door size – don’t worry. Custom doors can be made to match any size door opening. Although, custom garage doors do cost more money. On average, you can expect to pay roughly 20-25% percent more for a custom garage door.

As a home improvement contractor, the majority of garage doors I replace are standard height and size doors. When replacing your garage door, take a picture of the door profile to see if your local supply house can match your door trim and profile, as well as the dimensions of the door. Be sure to get multiple quotes from various suppliers, and contractors to get the best deal possible. I normally can save 20% percent by presenting quotes from other suppliers and you can too.

A lawyer never retires. So I would just say that I am not as active as I used to be. Now I simply dedicate myself to fishing, my hobby, and my grandchildren. For Business Finance News I write about legal aspects of mortgage policies, mostly regarding the rights of policyholders. I also have articles about personal injuries.
