GARAGE DOOR STANDARD OPENING HEIGHTS

Typical garage doors arch open into the garage at a standard height of approximately 7-8 feet. Garage interiors can be as high as 12-15 feet. This is a significant amount of space that can be better utilized. Garage Living can take this extra space and create enough clearance to accommodate a car lift.

WHAT IS A HIGH LIFT GARAGE DOOR CONVERSION?

A high lift garage door conversion is a modification to an existing garage door’s operating components to open at a higher level within the garage space. This conversion is accomplished by adding new tracks, new springs, new drums, and new cables, all while utilizing your existing garage door. A side-mounted  garage door opener keeps operations off the ceiling and onto the wall to free up the space. The conversion essentially means that the garage door opens up arching at a higher level closer to the ceiling.
