Place Racks Above Doors to Use Space

Conventional overhead garage door tracks usually hold the doors somewhere slightly above seven feet from the floor. That’s fine if you use the space for a normal car, without a lift. However, the space above the door when it is open is wasted unless you install a rack system. For attached garages, usually the garage ceiling is at least nine feet high, leaving two feet of room for storage. There are many manufacturers of metal rack systems that attach to the ceiling of the garage, and hang down. In addition, I’ve seen bicycles, kayaks and canoes, big ladders, and boxes stored above garage doors.
