Sometimes we wish we were just a little bit taller. While this isn’t possible for humans, it is possible for other things. Garage doors are, in many cases, able to be made taller, so if you need somewhere to store your 4WD or caravan, and your garage is just a little too short, you’re probably in luck. There are a few things that will determine whether it’s possible for you to make your garage door taller. Let’s take a look at them in this post.

Garage space

For you to make your garage door taller, you’ll need to have enough space in your garage itself. Whether you have a roller door, sectional door or custom door, this has to be assessed first. It can be tricky to work out, involving complex calculations. The best way to get around this is to call up the team at The Garage Door Guys and have your garage space inspected.

New tracks

You may need a new set of tracks if you’re looking to make your garage door taller. In the case that you need a new garage door, it’s a good idea to get new tracks with it. Most garage doors are not designed to be on different tracks and will work much better and safer with a new set of tracks. The size of the new garage door may also be too big for the tracks, so more often than not, a new set of garage door tracks will be required.

Hiring a professional

If you need to make your garage door taller, it’s necessary that you choose a team of seasoned garage door specialists. There are DIY options, but chances are, they’ll cost you more in the long run. Increasing the height of your garage door is a complex job. It requires the right equipment and expertise. Getting the calculations and installation wrong will set you back a few steps. It could end up costing you more money if you make an incorrect change to your garage and then need an expert to restore it. It would be even worse if you were injured while lifting something heavy, or because the door fell off due to an improper installation. The risk you run by attempting a DIY on your taller garage door is simply not worth the safety risk.

They’ve had years of experience with installing, repairing and modifying garage doors and have the expertise to assess your garage door for a height increase.
