You might want to see if a Wayne Dalton IDrive would work. I had 3
installed by WD and the price including installation was $400. They fit
above the door instead of in the middle of the ceiling and turn the torsion
spring to open the door.
Yes, I have two installed on my garage. You probably won't find any
at the big box hardware stores, though. You will have to get it from
a garage door company. Mine are Liftmaster, but I would think that
other brands are available too.
I haven't been hearing too many good things about the i-Drive. If you
decide to go that route, do your homework before you buy. Other
companies make similar systems too.
