    There is no hard and fast rule. However, keep in mind that there will have to be enough room for the installers to attach the sheet metal to the sides with their screw guns and set their ladders for taller structures.

  9. What leg height should I have on my garage?

    Although, there are exceptions, the rule of thumb is, if the garage doors are to be placed in the end (width) of the garage the leg height must be 1’ taller than the height of the garage door(s). If the garage door is to be placed in the side wall (length) of the garage, the leg height of the garage needs to be 2′ taller than the height of the garage door(s). (i.e. 24′ wide x 40′ long x 9′ leg height with two 9′ wide x 7′ high roll-up doors placed in the 40′ side wall. Result is 2′ higher leg height of garage than the height of the garage door).

    Pour slab ¾ ” wider in width and the same length. As an example for a 24′ x 40’ garage a slab should be a minimum of 24′ ¾” x 40’ long.

  11. Is it possible to add electric garage door openers to the garage doors?

    Our garage doors are roll-up steel 'coil' type doors. They work great, however, an electric motor option is not available. If you are in a circumstance that requires an electric garage door opener you can always have us install the garage with an opening per your dimensions. Then after the garage construction is completed by us, you or a local garage door contractor can install a garage door with an electric garage door opener to fit your needs.

  12. What type of roof does this garage have?

    All of our garages are quoted with the far superior vertical style roof. Why is it superior? A vertical style roof is far less prone to leak. The roof does not hold water, leaves, pine straw and other debris. It also has a natural ridge vent and a more pleasing appearance. Wherever you buy insist on the vertical style roof. Please take a look at the vertical roof illustrated on a metal garage.
