Got questions? Our Garage Doors FAQs should help.
How do I measure my space?
If you want the door fitted in between a frame then you measure the height from the underside of the timber above to the floor below and the width in between the frame across. If you want to maximise your opening size then you can have the door fitted behind the brickwork and you would measure the height and width of the brick opening. However we would always carry out a site survey ahead of you placing an order with us.
Will you charge to come out and survey my space?
Site surveys are carried out free of charge.
