If you have a low ceiling in the garage, which opener do you need?

A residential garage door requires a minimum of 4 ½ inches of headroom. Different special track options are available and make it possible for doors to be installed in non-standard garages. Your garage door system may need:

  • A low-headroom track system (which slopes down instead of running parallel to the ceiling)
  • A low-headroom-torsion rear-track system
  • Another type of unique track system designed for minimum headroom

For a garage door opener, you will need about 6 ½ inches of headroom at a minimum.
