I have a small shed (8X10) used to house my pool pump, filter and assorted
other junk. The problem I have is the cement walk around the pool slopes
quite a bit in front of the shed doors so they can't be opened all the way,
and when closed a gap is left at the bootom of the doors. I was thinking a
small overhead garage type door would solve this problem. Is there any place
I could find a small overhead door? Any other ideas on this will be
You can get sectional doors as small as 5' wide & mini roll-up doors
as small as 3' wide. You may have to modify the door jambs to accept
these types of doors since some sheds w/ swing doors do not have
anything in the proper place to attach these doors to. It may also
depend on how much headroom you have on what type of door will fit.
You can get a sectional door in as little as 4-1/2" of headroom but a
mini roll-up will usually take around 13-14".
These types of doors are put on sheds all the time here in the
southeast, but I don't know if it is common elsewhere.
If you are using a sectional door there also needs to be something on
the ceiling or roof to attach the rear part of the tracks. You may
have to put a support beam between the two walls.
