Convert Your Smaller Garages Into One Larger Garage Bay
Looking to replace 2 smaller garage doors on your home? Read on to find out more about our garage door conversion process!
What Is Garage Door Conversion?
Many homes in the Oklahoma City Area were built in the 60s and 70s when cars were smaller. Two 8 foot or 9 foot doors were placed side by side to create 2 garage bays. As cars have gotten bigger, garages need to get bigger as well. We can turn your two 8 ft doors into a 17 or 18 foot garage bay that will allow you to have additional entry space into your garage and will make the garage appear larger from the outside of the home. We handle all construction to create the perfect garage door for you!
Is Garage Door Conversion Right For Me?
If your home is a single story structure with two side by side garage doors, you may be a good candidate for a garage door conversion! We like to look for a garage where there is very little weight on the garage, and the only weight comes from the rafters above. This allows us to knock out the center beam without having to reconstruct the front of the home.
How Does Garage Door Conversion Work?
Once we determine that your house is a good candidate for a conversion, we will reinforce the ceilings in the garage in order to remove the center beam from between the garage doors. This is so the rafters don't sag. If the header above the garage doors is insufficient, we will replace it with an LVL header that is up to code. We handle all construction, so the only thing you need to do once the project is complete is paint it if you would like! Our goal is to complete the project in one day, so that you have one working garage door by the end of the day. Only one remote is then needed to operate the entire garage system.
How Much Does a Garage Door Conversion Cost?
Because every home is different, it is hard to provide an estimate of how much a garage door conversion will cost. Please call our office and one of our technicians will be out to visit your home and see the project in order to give you a more accurate estimate. We provide a variety of styles and models of garage doors for you to choose from to create the perfect look for your garage.
Are There Any Exceptions?
While most projects can be completed in one day, there are a few exceptions. If a home is built with brick, an engineer many need to be involved in the project to ensure that the brick work is properly supported. Another example is a two-story home, where there is more weight that needs to be supported by the beams of the structure.
At Precision Garage Door, we believe that 1 is better than 2 (garage doors, that is) - call us today to discuss your garage door conversion and create a garage that works for you!
