High lift garage door

my opening is only 7X8 . I need to install the 7x8 garage door which would need to curve and go into garage as close to ceiling as possible so that the distance between the bottom of the door in up position and the ceiling is no more then 15 inch. (including the hardware) . Is this a mater of radius? what other things I should be aware of? Thank you

High lift garage door

Piece of cake....

But some advice...pay to have it installed. I 're-installed' my door after I rebuilt my garage. 2 guys knowing what they are doing will knock that out before you finish your second beer.

I'm the epitome of the DIY'r....but no more garage doors for me. Same with roofs...and stucco.....and digging holes....and hauling off concrete.....and washing the dog (that's the kids job)


Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.

Are you trying to get the garage door closer to the ceiling than normal?
