How To Measure For Your New Residential Garage Door
Use the drawing above and instructions below to measure your existing garage door, or call Amelia Overhead Doors to measure everything for you. Contact Amelia Overhead Doors at (804) 561-5979, or fill out the contact us inquiry form on our website,, when you’re ready to find your perfect garage door. Come into the showroom or browse the selection on the Amelia Overhead Doors website. Amelia Overhead Doors can even help you to custom design the door that is perfect for you!

Step 1
Measure the width and height of your door (numbers 1 and 2), to decide on the garage door size you need. The rough opening should be the same size as the door.

Step 2
Measure the left side and right side (3 and 4). A minimum 3.75″ is required on each side for installation of the vertical track for a standard extension spring, standard torsion spring and the torsion spring system; 5.5″ for the extension spring system.

Step 3
Measure area labeled headroom (5); this is the distance between the top of the door opening and the ceiling. 10″ is required for the standard extension spring system while 12″ is required for a standard torsion spring and torsion spring system. If the height measurement in your garage is shorter than our suggested guidelines, Amelia Overhead Doors can still accommodate unique specifications through a custom installation process.

Step 4
Measure area labeled backroom (6) – distance is measured from the garage door opening toward the back wall of your garage room. Door height with an additional 18″ is required.


Door Operation Checklist

Here is a simple checklist you can perform monthly to stop small issues from becoming big problems

  • Check the balance of the door.
    • With the overhead door in the down position, detach the opened (if applicable) by pulling down on the red manual release handle.
    • Lift the overhead door manually up to the halfway point and gently release the door. A balanced door should hang in place and not raise or lower. If the door does not stay in place, contact Amelia Overhead Doors for adjustment.
  • Check the door operation.
    • Once you have determined your overhead door is in balance, lift the door up and down to ensure smooth operation. The door should be easily controlled when lifting and lowering.
  • Check the safety feature for doors with automatic openers.
    • Make sure the operator has a working safety feature. Photo eyes should be mounted on the left and right sides of the bottom of the door opening.
    • Make sure any door locks are disabled or removed if the door has an automatic opener.
    • Retest following the opener manufacturer’s instructions.
