A lot of garage door manufacturers usually have a variety of garage door systems and all of these systems require unique specifications. During a construction of a garage, these specifications required for the perfect installation of garage door are ignored that cause a lot of problems and alterations for the later installation. If all of the factors that contribute in a smooth installation are considered during the construction of a garage, for example, size and design specifications, then a lot of cost and time can be saved. We have personally experienced that a lot of time the garage doors that we deliver are undersize or oversize for the installation in cases when the owner of the house did not bother considering the specifications for the garage doors as well as the size of car that was going to be parked in the garage.

Size of the Garage Door
Size of the garage doors are usually a main cause of conflict among the clients and the architects. It is the most important thing that should be considered before ordering the garage door. In general scenario, the architects are responsible for keeping different factors in mind like what kind of car does their clients prefer and drive? How much space will their cars and other accessories will require in the garage? How much width, depth and length of the garage will be suitable for the client, and keeping all this information in mind they are supposed to answer the question that what type of garage door will better serve their client’s needs. In a lot of scenarios, where we were requested to install a specific garage door, although all the specifications for the garage doors were met by the garage, we had to deliver the bad news to our clients that their car will not fit in the garage.

Garage Door Automation
Garage door automation with the of a remote control electric operator is a very popular trend these days especially in scenarios where the garage door sizes are large and that makes it difficult to impossible to operate them manually. It is important to consider all the factors that revolved around the installation of an electric operator and the related accessories like power supply and control switches etc. There are a lot of control systems that all easy control of the automated garage door such as remote controls, key switches, keypads, and card readers and in some cases high-tech fingerprint scanners.

Another factor like local planning and conservation area restrictions can highly influence the design, material and size of the garage door to be installed and should be considered beforehand. Garage floor levels should also be brought into consideration because an uneven floor can make the installation of a new garage door very difficult. Some spaces and gaps can also be left out in such scenarios that will allow dirt, leaves and rain water to enter the garage through them.
