The following image can give a better idea of the inside of a garage for a new garage door. There needs to be 6” inches of clearance on each side of the door and 1 foot of clearance on the header for the torsion system. As follows in the next image:

“Absolute Garage Doors was great with their customer service on my experience for a new garage door purchase. We called them and they helped me quickly. Gave me options, asked me what I would like with or on my door. They weren’t pushy and trying to sell. The only thing I needed to do to get an accurate price was to measure my door. She explained how to do it and asked questions that she needed to know to know what I had to do. She sent me to their website with pictures and explained how to measure and what to look for. Inside and outside of the garage. We had an odd size, 15’6”x7. To modify the door, it took a few days longer but it was okay. We added windows and a garage door opener. When they came out to retake measurements and write up the contract, the price stayed the same! They did as we said, didn’t try and sell us anything, but did give us options. 4 days later we had a new garage door installed and it was great! Thanks Absolute Garage Doors.”
