    Support Resources for Contractors & Architects


    Planning
    Before you start your next garage building or renovation project, be sure that you are asking yourself and the homeowner all the right questions! Our garage planning guide includes all the important things you need to know.

    Building Permits
    You must be sure to have the right permits for your garage construction or renovation project before starting any work. For permit information, building requirements, and applications for Boston, please visit the city’s municipal website:


    Measurements
    It’s important to carefully measure the residential garage door opening before purchasing your new door. There should be enough sideroom and headroom to accommodate the entire door system. When designing your garage door opening, please refer to our worksheet to guide you.

    For additional headroom and sideroom requirements, please refer to the following resources:


    Cost
    The exact cost of your new Garaga door will depend on your project needs, as well as the options and dimensions you require. However, most residential models can be installed by our team of garage door experts for less than $1000. For more information about pricing and details on how you can customize your door, please contact us today by completing our online quote request form


    Installation
    We are happy to provide installation services along with any purchase of a garage door system. We recommend that our certified experts handle installation to ensure a safe and long life of the door.
