I recently bought this house and bought a garage door opener. What I did not take into consideration while buying or assembling the opener is that there is very little clearance between two rafter ties and the door when its open.
What I am trying to figure out is if there is anyway to modify the rafter ties to allow for the extra 3" of clearance I need (Notch, etc). The rafter ties appear to be 2x6" and are a simple design. The garage is a small 280 sq ft. single bay garage with rafter ties about 3' apart.
I'll scrap the project if I have to but I don't think I'll get my money back from Home Depot on the half installed Garage Door Opener
