Need fast help with minimum height requirements....

Hi everyone!

We are blocking our new garage this weekend and are still undecided on the size of doors we want.

Can anyone tell me what the minimum height requirements are (from top of door to truss) for a regular track door and also a low clearance track?

I would really appreciate it!

Depends on how big a door your putting in. They want like 14", if you are laying 8" block then 2 courses above door should give you around 16". That is for a standard 7 or 8ft high door. I would call the garage door company you think you are going to use and ask them what they want.
