All measurements should be in feet and inches. Step 1, measure across the existing door or desired space for the width, then up and down for the height. The rough opening of your space should be the same size as the door. Step 2, measure the sideroom, which is the space beside your door. Measure the width of the left side, and then the width of the right side. Step 3, measure the space above the door, which is called the headroom. Measure the height of the distance between the top of the door opening and the ceiling. Step 4, measure the ceiling, which is called the backroom. You’ll need to measure the distance of the garage door opening toward the back wall of your garage. You should have 6 total measurements in all once you’ve finished measuring the space. Keep in mind that having an automatic garage door opener installed might call for additional backroom or ceiling space.


Sears offers two different drive mechanisms to accommodate your home and budget.

You can also choose a chain drive opener, which is perfect for garages that are unattached to the home.

Decided upon Precision mainly due to scheduling something fast, and able to come out on a Sunday. Chris Newman was our Technician, and proved to be very knowledgeable and courteous, and thorough. We originally called due to a broken coil spring, but Chris found other items (which he explained in detail and showed me), such as a broken bottom plate (which could have caused more issues later on). Went over various options, and repaired / replaced the equipment in a very timely manner. Would definitely call on Precision Door in the future.
