Transforming a 3 Car Detached Garage

Jerry and Roxanne just purchased a home in Lake of the Pines, CA. On their long list of renovation tasks was replacing the older wooden tilt garage door with something that fit their style a bit better. They were looking for the old carriage house look for their garage doors. But there was a problem. Their garage door was setup so that where we’d need to install the tracks for the new garage door would cross directly in front of the main door to the house from the garage. This would mean you’d have to avoid bumping your head each time you went in and out of the garage on the new tracks. Not ideal, especially if you are already spending money to upgrade your garage doors.

With those requirements in mind, Steven and his wife decided to replace their rotting garage doors with 3 new 9×7 Clopay Gallery carriage doors. The Clopay Gallery series doors are insulated steel back doors. Not only are they lighter, and more affordable than wood, the insulated steel drastically improves the temperature in the building during the summer and winter months. This was especially important for this detached structure, but is a great benefit for attached garages as well. After removing the old garage doors, worn hardware and outdated garage door openers and equipment, we prepped the garage for the garage door installation. The pictures speak for themselves, but what a difference! The old ashy brown wood doors were replaced with dark oak finish doors. As you can see from the photos, without doing any other painting or updating, the structure looks completely upgraded! Not only are the doors new, the style of the door changes the look and feel of the exterior. In addition to the new doors and color, new decorative hardware was added. As for getting a quieter opener for the kids upstairs, we installed 3 LiftMaster 8550W belt drive openers with 2 remotes, an exterior keypad, battery backup and built in Wi-Fi, so the openers can be controlled via mobile devices. Not only are these openers smooth and quiet, the tech features that come along with these openers are a luxury! Steven and his wife are extremely happy with how their garage turned out! It might be a while now before their kids decide to move out!
