It depends on the type of spring and track system that will be installed with your new door. There are many options available to complement your building. Options such as follow the roof, highlift, full vertical track, spring cycles, door weights, and track thickness can all impact the amount of clearance required. Standard headroom requirements for a door with torsion springs and a 2-inch thick track with a 15-inch radius require 16 inches. However, changes will directly affect the clearance needed. It is always best to have a professional dealer or overhead door repair specialist look at the opening to determine the best track application and clearance required.
You will need:
- C clamps or locking pliers
- Tape measure
- Socket wrench kit
- Combination open-end wrench
- Impact driver

Unwinding standard torsion springs requires specific tools and training. Due to the dangerous nature of this process, we recommend you contact a local overhead door repair professional to remove the tension from the springs.
