The following form will walk you through the measurements and other information that is needed in order for us to quote a high lift conversion kit for your garage door. High lift kits increase the vertical rise of the garage door so that the door reaches the horizontal track closer to the ceiling than with a standard lift garage door. This form will follow the first two sections of our High Lift Garage Door Conversion tutorial.
Under most circumstances, you will be quoted prices for your custom high lift kit before submitting this form. If a spring pair cannot be immediately found or if your kit requires special calculations, the price of your kit will not be given as we will contact you shortly regarding the cost of your kit after performing further calculations.
If your ceiling height allows for more than 54 inches of high lift, you will have the option to convert over to commercial hardware for your high lift kit. If your ceiling height is at least twice your door height, you will have the opportunity to receive a quote for a vertical lift conversion kit.
We can also quote roof-line high-lift kits through this form, but if you want your door to open at more than 45 degrees from parallel to the garage floor, please contact us as your kit will need to be calculated manually.
Customers often have a number of questions when they consider a high lift conversion. Before filling out the inquiry below, we suggest you read our blog on High Lift Kit FAQs.
IMPORTANT: Many of our high lift kit quotes and shipments are being delayed for several weeks because of incomplete information, including guesses at door weights and failures to follow measurements related to the tracks, floor and ceiling. Inquiries are also being delayed because of innacurate spring measurements, especially when customers enter their spring lengths. Please let us know if your spring length is the wound or unwound length, and we will adjust the door weight as needed. If you have questions about some of the information required, please contact us before filling out the inquiry. This will accelerate processing from inquiry to shipping of your high lift conversion kit.
Please bear in mind that once we have all the information, processing your order will normally require three to five days. The popularity of the high lift kits and the loyalty of our customers have required us to move employees around to support increased sales.
NOTE: The kit does not include tracks nor assembly unless you select them on the third page ahead. Most of our customers cut off the inside portions of their horizontal tracks to use for their vertical track extensions.
