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 LiftMaster 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.
