Re: Garage door size

I got a new garage door through home depot over the summer. The company they used came out and measured to make sure they made the right size, even though it's a standard door. Pretty sure they sub to actual garage door companies so going through HD should be fine even if it's not standard. It'll just take longer.

They did the same for me, it was a Coplay, but I did a install. If you just order it I think they drop ship to the store. You are probably better off contacting the door manufactures directly if you are going to self install.

Usually I'd do it myself but I didn't want to mess with the spring.

Does it have a torsion spring (across the top of the door) or springs on each side?

Clopay's factory is right in Troy, OH here about 5 miles from where I live.

They have center springs with springs on either side on top as well.
