in gereral the rough opening for an overhead garage door is the same as the door size. reason being is when the door closes it closes up against the opening not within the opening. the casings on the outside of the opening are what keep the air and water from infiltrating.

With pivot hdw. the door fits within the width of the opening and butts against the header.
With jamb/track hdw., the door overlaps the sides.
