When deciding what you would like to place underneath the header of your garage door, be very careful on the decorations you choose as it can affect the overall stability of the unit as time goes on. Remember that in most cases, the height of your rough opening should be identical to that of your garage door. Getting the correctly-sized rough opening protects the contents of your garage from the elements, preventing any rain, wind or wintry showers from getting inside. Indeed, if you’re looking to adapt your garage into a den for watching the football, this will ensure that it isn’t too cold and harsh inside.
The best way to receive desired results when sizing up your rough opening is to plan in advance and make sure that you have all of the materials you could possibly need. There’s nothing worse than getting to the final stages of your project only to realise that you are missing a vital tool!
