Our client, Anthony, built a large metal garage to store his vehicles on his property. The challenge: he needed high opening residential garage doors to fit his new space.
Since his garage opening was 10 feet wide by 14 feet high, he needed a commercial size garage door to fit the space. Except, he didn’t want a commercial looking garage door. This presented a challenge to find a commercial garage door style that would look more residential.
His only other request was that he wanted light to come into the garage, but he didn’t want full glass garage doors either.
We were able to find a garage door and a solution to match his needs. We installed durable new garage doors, 24 gauge, with a window panel at the top.
We used LiftMaster jackshaft openers instead of an overhead garage door opener. This opener mounts to the wall instead of the ceiling, so it allows the garage door to have a higher clearance. The opener has a battery backup, WiFi abilities and can be controlled from a smartphone. You can even set a timer, so the door will close automatically if it’s been open for a set period of time. This is a great security feature, especially when you have expensive gear and vehicles stored in your garage!
The project wasn’t easy, but look how awesome these doors look!
If you didn’t have any scale reference, you can’t tell these are commercial doors. They look like your average residential garage door. The addition of the top panel of windows really helps achieve this look and the doors are durable and functional, while still stylish and letting in lots of light during the day.
Anthony is thrilled that he has this great new space for his vehicles on his property, with garage doors that not only look good but will last a long time and hold up to the elements. A garage is safe and comfortable place to store all of his toys, and having doors to help secure the space is all he needed!
