John and Rebecca’s home in Granite Bay, CA was in need of a little curb appeal upgrade. They wanted to change the look of their exterior and thought a great place to start was replacing their garage door.
Often times in planned developments of homes, the garage doors are very standard and it can make the whole neighborhood look similar. Instead of spending thousands to repaint or relandscape, installing a brand new unique garage door can help your home to stand out, and look good!
John and Rebecca ended up choosing this BEAUTIFUL Clopay garage door. The door comes with 2″ of steel back insulation, which is great for keeping the garage cooler in the hot Granite Bay summers and warmer during the cool and rainy winter.
Now generally we would perform a standard installation on this door like all garage door installs.
However, John wanted to install a car lift in his garage. Basically, this means the door needs to open as high as possible. This type of installation is called a “High Lift” installation.
We decided that to get the maximum clearance for the High Lift installation, we also needed to not do a standard overhead garage door opener installation as well so we could save space on the ceiling.
To solve this, we installed a LiftMaster Jack Shaft opener, which is installed on the wall of the garage door, as seen below.
The tracks we installed with the high lift installation also gave us a gift! Since the tracks have an early break away from the frame of the home, it allowed us enough clearance to install some decorative hardware on the garage door.
We were able to install some iron handles and other accent pieces to really make a unique, custom look for John and Rebecca’s new door. This gave them a better functioning door, a smooth and quiet new opener, and a definite curb appeal upgrade!
