Dumb question for all those rehabbers, contractors, and flippers out on here. I need to replace the garage door on a house I am rehabbing, and it is 6'6 tall. Seems that the standard height on doors these days is 7'. Will a 7' door fit? Any other suggestions so I don't need to go out and pay for a custom door?
what's headroom? to answer your question for a 7' door to work the distance above the door to the ceiling will need to be 12"-14".
You can also use extension springs and get away with a little less clearance, as well as what they call low headroom kits.
I install garage doors professionally in Alabama, you can get the garage doors in 6'6" height.
Thanks. Where do you get your doors from? The big box stores seem to sell at 7' the minimum.
