If you are building your own garage, there are some specific clearances that must be met in order for the garage door to run smoothly and function properly.
- The garage’s opening width should be smaller than the width of the door.
- The easiest way to accomplish this is to make your unfinished opening the width of the desired garage door. Once you install fascia board, you’ll have that needed edge for the door to seal on.
- Wooden doors are nearly always custom made, so you will be able to get the right fit regardless of your opening.
