Dimensions For Your Garage Door
Knowing the dimensions of your garage door is a great place to start. The dimensions of your garage door will dictate the options you have available. If you are having a new garage built, you can simply build the space to fit the style of door you like. However, if you are replacing the door of an existing garage, you will need to choose a door that fits a certain size.
It is generally recommended that you ask a professional garage door fitter to measure up the space as the door will need to fit exactly.
Your Garages Uses
Recently, we wrote a blog about the most common uses for garages in the UK and the findings showed that most people weren’t using their garage in the traditional way to store their vehicle. Consequently, depending on what you will use your garage for, you may want to choose a certain type of garage door.
Whilst up and over garage doors are the most common, if you have a short driveway, you may want to look at another option. Popular types of garage doors include:

Side Hinged garage doors
