shed door (-roll up?)


As if I didn't already have enough going on somehow or other I've managed to tear down the old slap dash (lean to & filled in walls) shed, expand the base area (24 x12 now), set a course of block and just this morning truck a load of lumber over.

The question is how best to do a door.

The RO lays out to 72" between the blocks which could be done with a simplish split of hinged something or other (36&36 maybe 42&30)... or maybe a single roll up could be found that would sort of match or at least blend in with the rest of the structure and the existing OH door on the garage.

Any ideas of what companies to look for?
Material choices? Prices?

Thanks

You could make a double swing in door to fit or you could buy a roll up door like they use on storage buildings.Lots more options available.

like split the width even at 36 & 36? or maybe offset at 42 & 30?

bump.

No one has put a roll up door on a shed?
No one has looked into it and learned some wisdom they can share?

Any ideas of what companies to look for?
Material choices? Prices?

Did you get some answers? I'm in the same position. Looking for a 8x7 roll up. Youtube has a good installation video with a guy doing a 'how-to-build-a-shed' video.

I looked at this idea ("small" roll-up door) years back. My idea was to use the same hardware that is used in some semi-tractor rigs and rental storage units. I was working on a storage shed that I built against an outside wall of concrete blocks. The thing that stopped me was the pri$e. You may find what you're looking for in Farmtek's catalog.

I found them to be cheaper than regualr garage doors!!! Prices have come down. Many online warehouses with cheap prices.

I ordered one this week. $450 for an insulated commerical grade.

That's about what I found as well ...but I view $450 cost differently.

With a bit of care/planning the t-111 cut for the 6' x7' opening become
the doors. Those, along with a couple of 2x4's and some hardware...
and all is done for about $50?. I'm happy.

Looks great! Yeah, $450 is getting up there, but for a new roll up, it's not too bad. Non-insulated was $297.

Since that picture was taken (the next day I suspect)
the rest of the block was painted the same brown as the trim too.

Based on how happy I am with the Behr concrete epoxy I'll be doing the
garage floor next spring and if I know me... the concrete apron as well.
