Yes. A residential garage door requires a minimum of 4 1/2” of headroom space. Your garage door system may need a low-headroom track system or a low-headroom-torsion rear-track system. For a garage door opener, you will need slightly more headroom (about 6 1/2” minimum).
This is a common question when it comes to choosing a garage door. Overhead Door offers many designs, with a number of options to further customize your garage door.
If your garage will be subjected to extreme temperatures, hot or cold, consider a well-insulated Thermacore® door to ensure your maximum comfort. The higher a door’s R-value, the greater its insulating properties. And Thermacore® doors offer R-values up to 17.5. This is made possible by a continuous layer of foamed-in-place polyurethane insulation sandwiched between two layers of rust- and corrosion-resistant steel. These doors also feature between-section seals that provide added resistance to air infiltration, as well as bulb-type bottom seals that guard against wind and rain. Choose from raised or flush panels, or you may combine the energy efficiency of Thermacore® with the carriage-house styling of Courtyard Collection® doors.
R-value is a standardized measurement of thermal efficiency. The higher the R-value, the greater the garage door’s insulating properties. Overhead Door manufactures insulated garage doors for residential and commercial applications, with a broad range of R-values designed to meet your needs. Our Thermacore® doors offer the highest R-values up to 17.5.
Overhead Door takes great pride in manufacturing residential products that work every day and last for life. We stand behind our work. To prove it, many of our residential garage doors automatically come with a warranty that protects against rust-through for as long as you own your home. And to demonstrate our commitment to customer satisfaction, high standards and quality workmanship, all Overhead Door garage doors include a one-year, non-transferable, limited warranty (see warranty for full details).
Our recycled-wood EcoBuilt® doors are specially formulated with resins and waxes to resist moisture, outperforming other doors in tests for weather and time. They also resist splitting, warping, cracking, denting and bending.
Visit our Keypad Programming Instructions page to find the directions for your opener.
You first need to determine if your opener is a newer model with CodeDodger® or an older model without CodeDodger®. If your opener was manufactured before 1980, then you have an analog-type opener for which we no longer carry remotes. If that is the case, your system has to be upgraded with a new receiver kit for a new remote control to work with it.
To program the HomeLink® transceiver, some vehicles may require the ignition to be turned on or the vehicle to be running. For additional garage door opener help, view the HomeLink® programming instructions page.
