Measuring for Your Raynor Garage Door

Most new construction homes have standard size door openings for one- or two-car garages. However, if you need a nonstandard or custom design, or are purchasing a Carriage House style wood garage door, your authorized Raynor Dealer will need to know the measurements of your garage.

The information requested below is necessary to assure a proper selection of a new Raynor quality garage door.

Step 1: Door Opening Width

______ft. ______in.
Step 2: Door Opening Height

______ft. ______in.
Step 3: Headroom


Note: Standard Lift doors require a minimum of 12" of over door height. Not enough headroom? Don't worry. Raynor's Low Headroom Front Mount Springs package reduces the height requirement to 8-1/4" of over door height, while Low Headroom Rear Mount Springs require as little as 4" (plus 2" w/motor operator).

Step 4: Side Room


Note: A minimum of 3" side room is required with all models.

Step 5: Backroom


Note: The minimum backroom requirements are as follows:
Standard Lift—door height + 26"
Low Headroom Front Mount Springs—door height + 20"
Low Headroom Rear Mount Springs—door height + 29"

Step 6: Obstructions


Note: Obstructions are defined as entry doors or other objects that will interfere with the garage door track or the operation of a garage door. The nearest obstruction may be something such as pipes, support beams, heating ducts, lighting, etc. Obstructions must be taken into consideration in the headroom, sideroom, and backroom measurements.
