Garage Door Measuring Guide

Measuring made easy

What may seem like a complicated task is actually a very simple one. The way we organise our design and manufacturing processes means that all we need to price your new Anglian home improvements are a few simple measurements.

There's no maths involved, no awkward angles or curves to measure, just straight lines. The dimensions you provide will enable us to provide you with a price. An Anglian qualified surveyor will carry out an exact survey prior to manufacture and in the event of your products being over, or under measured, the contract price will be amended accordingly.

This document will take you through the simple process step-by-step!
