Good afternoon. I'd like to install bifold garage doors on a modern, residential 3-car garage. They will be typical car garage door size. Can you give me a ball-park estimate for a single door with lift mechanisms? Thanks, Alex
I am VERY interested in an overhead, exterior mount, bi-fold garage door for my residence to replace the existing traditional double garage overhead door. Is there a dealer/installer in my area of FL? Thanks, Peter
I would like to replace my garage door with a lift-strap bifold door. I am interested in the "build your own door" option as well. How can we get started? I have a detached double wide garage with space above the opening where I would like the door to be when it is open. The opening is 7'4", but the wall is 10' high, so the new door could be 10' tall, and leave an opening of at least 7'4" when open. The garage is basically a square building, with 2 feet on either side of the door opening. I am open to the whole door being stand alone in front of the existing building if that is possible. I can send pictures if you need.
I m looking for Bifold garage door pricing(by sq.ft estimate if possible. Also if we could do a normal insulated metal vs. insulated glass pricing if available. If not by sq. ft. we are looking at using 10'x12' normal garage style bifold and a 10'x12' glass bifold.
Was wondering if you had a dealer in the metro Detroit area that could come out and look at an opening we have that we would like to put a bifold garage door into. It would have a weird step in the bottom panel and not sure if that is able to be done or not.
Hi. do you supply the mechanism and control units for building the door onto self built glazed garage doors? i am interested in the rams with ball screw actuator. Thanks, Chad
Hello - I'm working on a Residential project in Northern California and we're converting an old airplane hangar on the property into a garage. We'd like to use one of your bifold doors in lieu of the existing large sliding doors in the hangar. The opening is approximately 11' high and 22' wide. Can you help me figure out which one of your bifold systems is most appropriate for this opening, and what kind of costs we're looking at? Thanks! Dirk
I have a 7' tall by 9' wide, looking for a new garage door and would like to use a lift-strap bi-fold door. I see aviation hangars that way. Do you have anything that would work for me. My problem is low head room in the garage, but I see that you offer no loss of head room in your designs. Please send pics and prices if you do. Thanks

Hi, I am an architect working on a high-end residential scheme in London and I am interested in your lift-strap bi-fold doors as the street level doors for our basement parking garage. First question, do you supply to the UK? then; are your doors suitable for 7 openings/hour. Also what is the typical opening speeds, we are looking for around 1' 6"/s. Anyway, I look forward to hearing from you. Kind regards, Alan

We are currently working on a rather unique project and I was looking at either the lift-strap bifold or one-piece hydraulic door for a garage in Toronto. The rough opening is 8' x 16'. Would love to learn more about the system, what customization options there are for the garage door finish and timelines for fabrication and installation. Thanks, Joel L.
We are homeowners working on a residential outbuilding project. Instead of a traditional roll up garage door, we are thinking about lift-strap bi-fold doors. The clear opening desired is 8' by 8'. It looks from your website as though you do indeed manufacture doors this small. What would be the approximate cost of a strap bi-fold, with automatic open/close? And what is the add on cost for insulated glass windows and insulation? Thanks much! Dave and Alice

It will go into a garage with a stucco exterior, single story, "flat" roof. Any suggestions are welcome. Thank you.

I am working on a restaurant project in PA. The client showed me some photos of a bifold garage door, but I think for his project the hydraulic garage door may make more sense. Is there a local rep for Eastern PA? I will need more info for either option. Thank you, Stewart, Architect.

Hello, your lift-strap bi-fold doors look really nifty, and I'm thinking about designing them into a large residential garage / shop here in Colorado. I was wondering if you have any rough pricing for a bi-fold door that would be 22' wide by about 12-15' tall. Also, are there options where I can just get the framing and install my own siding? Are there any discounts for multiple door purchases (even if they are of different sizes)?
I am very interested in a bifold garage door solution for my garage doors. My current home has two separate 8' w x 8'6'' h single piece manual doors. Due to the space constraints of the garage and it has been next to impossible to find a suitable cost effective residential solution other than replicating the old cantilevered doors I currently have. I was hoping your bifold garage doors may provide the ideal solution. If not, I am looking at fabricating a solution of my own utilizing your lift strap system.
We are buying a home with a 2 car garage with no door. the ceiling height would be to low for vehicles if we hung the opener and the opened door from the celling. I am looking for more information and I think one of your one-piece hydraulic doors doors may work. Thanks Bill
We are building a residential garage in NYC with 11 ft high ceiling and a 26ft wide door. We would like the door opening to allow at least an 8ft high vehicle. We expect to use steel for the framing and could use tube or I beam. Would a bifold door work in this application and if so, what is the cost range? Am I right in thinking that more windows mean more weight, more cost and less insulation? Many thanks, Carl
I have a client who is converting their car port to a garage with a 7'2" ceiling. There is an existing wide flange header but the door needs to be flush front. Would like to discuss. Thank you, Sarah
I have a small garage with a 10 foot ceiling. I would like to put a bifold liftstrap insulated door or hydraulic insulated door on it. I like the hydraulic door clean look and the fact it has fewer moving parts.
Hello, we are looking for a bare bones vertical folding or one piece hydraulic operated garage door for a Chicago, IL residential garage. The present door is approximately 18 feet wide and 8.5 feet high. While your website shows some gorgeous custom made doors, we would be looking for a more basic and generic door, which would be very cost effective. Due to the limited short garage, I think either type of door would be best. It is a brick garage with frame side columns. Thank you,
We have a tuck under garage with two single garage doors separated by a 24 inch wall support. Is it possible to have these replaced by a hydraulic door or bifold garage door? We have to find someone to retrofit our MD house and install it? We can't get a conventional double overhead door because of the support beam for the upper part of the house that runs perpendicular to the garage doors. The present doors are narrow so to enter the garage we have to fold in the pickup mirrors and our Odyssey has very little side clearance also. Could you give us a base ballpark figure for a bifold door and a Schweiss hydraulic garage door approximately 20X7'? Just to get a feel for where we're starting at? Thank you.
Small garage on an alley. 24' wide (on the Alley) by 22' deep garage. This is a lean to, type building with the slope of roof to the alley. Door will be on the short end of building, on the alley. Insulated for ND Sub Zero Cold Climate. No Man door! What will the actual open clearance of a 9'6" door be. We may have to make the garage taller, as I have an 8" lifted GMC K2500HD truck to fit inside. Also, how much does the top or bottom lift system intrude into the garage? Truck is 21' long. Would you recommend a bifold strap door or a hydraulic door?

Hi bifold.com! It seems garage doors look so similar, we are looking for something a little bit distinctive or different looking, something with a nice sense of design. We have a small garage door (15 feet 10 inches wide, 7 feet tall), and don't want to spend a lot of $$, we live in Ojai CA. We would also be interested in one piece hydraulic powered doors that swing outwards. Do you have those sorts of residential designer garage doors available and do you ship garage doors out here? Thanks very much

This is a residential garage door 9'-0"wide by 7'-0" tall. We are looking for a garage door that opens outside of the garage space. IE... a vertically lifting bi-fold liftstrap garage door. City design constraints and need for a car lift limit choices for operation of garage door.
I have a low headroom garage space, and I'm not excited about having tracks and rear torsion springs inside the garage space. Can you provide a budgetary quote on a bifold strap door given this opening size? 7'x16'. I have a deck that overhangs the opening, can you tell me the minimum headroom required for the external bi-fold opening?
Our project is for 5 hydrau-lift or 5 bifolding liftstrap Schweiss doors (4 different sizes). The location is on Mt. Desert Island, Maine. We are building a two section, 4 vehicle garage (75' long) and a 60' x 30' boat shed that will have 3 doors. The structures will be engineered lumber and the siding and roof will be zink. The structures will be 125' from the shore so will need adequate windrating. We are interested in the system with 6" clearance when open. Look forward to speaking with someone - we can email CAD drawings ASAP.

I have a problem with a RV garage. I am not sure if the door will be the solution but what is the cost of a 12' X 16' tall bi-fold liftstrap door. Could 2' X 2' windows be added to the top half of the door? Could a stucco texture be added to the surface of the door as well?
How much would it cost for a single 24'x10' hydraulic door or bifold liftstrap door cost with a carriage door finish and high R insulation rating for a garage? My wife and I are planning on a new house with a larger garage space and I'd like the bifold or hydraulic door for head room above but I also want something rigid and can withstand high wind speeds. Also would like a safety where the door will lock and have protection from closing onto something (with an override). For curiosity do you have any hydraulic or vertical bifold doors that are engineered split into 2 doors with no division in the middle, allowing it to be 1 large opening and 2 independant doors? What do you think the cost would be for this kind of option?
Need a budgetary quote for a metal bifold strap door to be installed on a parking pad next to an alley. Should be enough room for you to install.

I need a garage door for a residential project. The outer skin of the garage door is to be flush with the wall clad in vertical timber. I am in Australia and have access to fabrication tools to make door panels but would like to utilize your unique bifold door lifting straps. Can the electric lifting motor be above the door rather than mounted on the door? The door is approximately 5.4m wide by 2.4 tall. the cladding weighs about 15kg/m2. I have a light gauge steel door frame in place but there is a massive 360UB sitting on 250UC above supporting the floor above to brace the vertical tracks onto.

But needs remote door opener.
Please email me a door quote. We have four garages already built for standard size bifold garage doors, like your liftstrap garage doors. We like the Schweiss Doors idea better because they are virtually maintenance free doors. Can we install ourselves, or are there local garage door installers?
We would like a residential garage door that is 23' feet wide and 9' tall. The door is to be glass with as few divisions as possible. We are open to a straight one piece hydraulic door or the bifold door with your liftstrap design. Please give us your Schweiss Doors expert recommendation.

We are looking for a garage door into a undergound parking area for a project here in WA. It needs to be a grille style door that allows the air movement into the garage for the mechanical requirements. I got the idea from one of your Schweiss Designer bifold doors you sold in Chicago. The door opening is 10'-0" wide and 7'-4" tall. The head room from the top of the opening to the slab above is 15". Do you make a horizontal bifold door or a hydraulic door that might work in this location? Do you have a sales rep. in the Spokane area?
Hi, I am looking at purchasing (2) 12'-0"W x 8'-0"H doors and (1) 15'-0"W x 8'-0"H Door or most economical around these 2 sizes (Width & Height flexible).

We are currently working on a project that requires two large garage doors: 11' wide by 12' tall. We are interested in using the bi-fold liftstrap doors with custom wood paneling outside. Can you give me a rough idea about the price for a Schweiss door like this with a remote controlled opener?
I have a unique garage door condition. The house is a 1953 modern post and beam style construction with a few "I-Beams" exposed to give credence to your liftstrap Bifold design. I do not have any clearance beyond a couple of inches above the height of the door jam of the garage (14'-2" x 6'-10"), so the bifold design seems interesting to me. I am wondering if I may speak to a rep regarding the possibilities of this. Thanks.
I am interested in an insulated Schweiss bi-folding strap door for a garage/studio application, measuring between 12-14 feet wide (this width is somewhat flexible) and 9 feet high, although it could be lower. The bi-folding door does not need a window in it, although a man-door may be a good idea if possible. We would like to put wood on the outside. However, metal is fine if wood proves to be too expensive. Please call me asap as the project is moving ahead quickly and I need to figure out what the structural requirements are for the door. The garage is being built out of wood framing, but I am using a couple of steel columns around some windows, so I could use steel around the door if we need to-- Thanks!!
I contacted you two years ago about a Schweiss bi-fold door. I am closing in on that project now so here we go again. I have a 18 w x 14t garage door today. The door is framed into an old dairy barn converted to machinery storage in the late 60's. The hay loft was removed and everything below that also. It looks like I can get between 23 and 24 feet wide and and still maintain 14 ft tall. Question 1. My roof is self supporting so end wall only holds up itself. My understanding of your straplift bifold system is that your door is self supporting and ships with its own frame support. The current fiberglass garage door is framed with 3 2x12 all around. This has stood the test of 40 years. What is your recommendation for framing your bi fold door? Question 2. Can you custom build your doors to fit my opening after we frame it up per your recommendations? Question 3. What is your current lead time for a 24 by14 bi-fold door? Question 4. What is my cost on such a door with walkdoor and windows, shipped to address above Thank You for your time.
I am building a garage / shop on Vancouver Island. I saw your doors on a hangar in Alaska and they look really good. Are they practical for a door much narrower than a hangar? I am thinking of an RV door, say 16' high by about 14' wide. Schweiss Bifold liftstrap design. Is it possible to get them for Vancouver Island BC and are you able to provide an estimate? I have not built the shop yet and so it will be possible to include whatever design details are necessary to support the door. Thanks very much
Folks, I am planning to construct a garage with an entrance 26 wide (for a single Schweiss hydraulic door) or double 10' wide doors with a a 6' wide walk-through door between then! Height to clear with vehicles is 9.5'. I like your single piece doors with hydraulic lifting rams. When the doors are open in the summer it would provide shade. Which would be less expensive a single 26' wide door or two 10' doors? Please provide an estimate as I am doing the design work and hope to be ready within a few months. Also, if I installed a system for the door or doors could it also provide hydraulic power for a lifting work table for bikes? Also, I would need two remote controls for the vehicles. Thanks.
Due to low ceiling height and lolly column placement in my 2 car garage, I currently have two large swinging doors that are sagging, and don't open when there's snow on the ground. I'm interested in a single bifold door as a practical solution to my problem. Does Schweiss Doors have a dealer nearby, or can you give me a rough cost estimate?
Hi, Any dealers or installers in Toronto for the standard single garage doors (X2)? How much does it costs for a one piece Schweiss Hydraulic door with us doing the installation? Thanks. Regards, Ken
We have a residential project upstate NY. The owner is looking to install a Schweiss designer style liftstrap bi-fold garage door with glass panes, and likely aluminum frames.

What would quickest delivery time be on the farm doors. Garage door not needed for another two months.

Hello, I am planning on building a garage/storage 40' depth x 60' length with requirement for a Schweiss Doors liftstrap bifold with autolatches to clear my ultralight aircraft of 33' tip to tip wingspan. What would the door size you recommend? What is the detail cost? I like the bifold for their uniqueness plus an extra shade in the summer. Thanks! Looking forward to getting this done this spring
I will be moving a metal garage next spring and raising it up. I will be taking two roll up doors out of the end and would like to put in a bifold door. 21' wide x 14' high. I am curious to know a ball park price on one with your liftstraps. Is there a price break if I purchase two doors. Thanks,
I would like to see one of your doors (lift strap bi-fold) in operation. Do you have a dealer anywhere close to my Virginia locale or a door in use locally? I have a block (8") garage with roughly a 22 ft. opening. There is no header at this time. I've used this bldg. for years with no door but now I'm planning to close it up. I like your lift strap idea better than a cable. I'm in Virginia but just across the state line from Tn. If you have one anywhere close I'd like to see if one like it would work for me. Your web site describes good qualities about your doors, just would like to see one in action.
I have a three car garage, with an 8' x 8' door and a 16'x 7' wide door. I put a lift in on the 16' wide side and before I modify the rafters I thought I would get an estimate on replacement doors. Bifold (with lift straps) would require less modification.
I have a three car garage, with an 8' and 16' foot wide door. Both are approximately 7' tall. I would like to replace both doors with bifold design to allow room for a lift. Straps are fine. My existing cheap steel doors are not insulated and need to be replaced. Hence I would like to get a quote on your quality built Schweiss bifolds that I've heard so much about.
Found the company on YouTube and love the idea of having Bi-fold doors with lift straps. My garage isn't as big as what you advertise but hope it can still be done. What would a garage door 15 wide by 10 high run me?
I have a high-end whole house reno/addition where a horizontally bifolding door system with lift straps and outdoor lighting has been requested from Schweiss Doors. The opening will be 11' 6" wide /- and 8' high /-. We want to make this two panel door out of clear annodized aluminum and twinsealed glass (similar to an aluminum/glass overhead garage door). The door will be located on a south facing wall in the kitchen/dining/family room area so it needs to look finished inside and out and given our climate must be neatly weatherstripped to handle rain and wind driven rain. Do you manufacture your product with the refinements in aesthetics and function that our designers/clients would be happy with??
Find attached a drawing of the garage, we have circled the two sections of interest to you. Please manufacture the bifold liftstrap door to those dimensions. If our interpretation of the drawing on your website is not correct as shown on the attachment please notify me by phone. If correct send me your shop drawings for review.

Hi! Are your Schweiss doors approved by the Miami Dade or South Florida building code? Are NOAs available? FYI, house will be built in Davie, Florida (Broward County). I'm looking for a one piece hydraulic door for a garage which will be 19 ft. wide or up to 22 ft. wide going on an attached residential (secondary) garage. Ideally we need doors with do not compromise internal usable height. Code will not allow regular garage doors over 18 ft wide and it does not allow for roll downs either. I appreciate your feedback.

We are doing a project where we are designing the provision for 2 overhead Schweiss bi-fold doors, each approx. 10' wide x 9' high. I realize this is a small door and although we really like your bifold door with lift straps, we would consider having you make a hydraulic door for us if you think that it would be a better option for our garage door use. We also want stucco siding on the door to match our home. Any help is appreciated.
Would like some information on large Schweiss bi-fold doors for large residential ( 40 - 50' frontage) garage structure. Include windows and locking walk thru door. No insulation needed. Shipping to California. After reading your website, we absolutely want the lift straps and autolatches. Outside skin needs to match exterior of garage.
I would like a quote for both door types (Hydraulic and Bifold) for a residential garage where I need as much vertical inside as possible but need a nice outside appearance which precludes using a roll up door... Is it over kill to use your door systems on a 8' X 18' application? Saw a garage door on your website that I really liked that matched the exterior of the home. Do you do stucco? Thanks
We have wide span garage (23'10" wide x 9'8" high) that has limited interior space for an overhead roll up door (limit track space due to angled concrete wall). Your bi-fold overhead door looks like a solution and I'd like to discuss advantages of lift straps over cables. Door will be used multiple times each day. No insulation needed.
Hi. I love the Schweiss liftstrap doors - we have a new 40 unit project in Hawaii - On the island of Oahu, community of Kailua. The project is located on an 8 Acre hilltop I would like to send you the first unit house plans, match a garage door to it and put a cost on its as well. Send an e-mail address I can use to transmit the house plans. We are almost ready to submit for building permits. To get an idea of the project search "na pali uli" on google and look at the idea books. There is one (1) Schweiss door All of the designs will be one-off designs and I want Schweiss doors to figure prominently in the project. I need technical specs power requirements and such for the garage doors all of which should have their mechanicals in the ceiling and then present the garage spaces as interior spaces. Thank you please contact me asap. Don H.

Looking to buy some garage doors for my house. It currently has manual bi fold doors that swing into the garage. There is a steel I beam carrying floor joists to the second floor that prevents me from installing a typical garage door and opener. Can I get one of your Schweiss bifolds that swing to the outside. I don't know whose invention the door I have on there now is from.
I am thinking of a new garage/shop. I would need two 9 X 10 doors. How do your bi-fold with lift straps compare to standard overhead door prices? I live in the middle of Wisconsin, will be wanting an insulated door?
I'm planning to build a garage/shop for myself in the next 1-2 years, and am taking the time to plan it well and plan it right. Very very excited about your product and am planning to use one of your Flush mount "H" style 1 piece Schweiss hydraulic or bifold doors. Looking to get a ballpark $$ figure on one that is 8.5 feet high and 14 feet long. I would be looking to put a facade on it that matches my house, this may include a stucco finish if that is something that is feasible with your door (if not I will figure out how to simulate the same texture with some other product) Please quote me on shipping to Seattle, WA. Thank you, I look forward to hearing back from you.

I am looking for 1 8'x8' aluminum and glass Schweiss bi-fold or single section garage door for a residential project. Do you carry something like that? Do you have the option of double paned glass? I would like to have two remote openers. Can you assist me with pricing? Thanks.
Beginning construction of a large three-bay garage addition to my home. The garage is 31' x 50' with three doors measuring 12' wide by 10.5' high. I am considering true carriage style doors because the "garage" is being designed as a multipurpose family room finished in red cedar with decorative concrete floor. The carriage style doors swing out and thus avoid the overhead rails of conventional rollup doors leaving a clean interior ceiling. Also, they may not be as child safe when opening & closing. Seems like your Schweiss bi-fold door could be much better, especially with the safety features you offer that other don't. Could we fabricate it out of red cedar inside and out? Can the lift mechanism be mounted at the top and concealed in "boxes"? Thanks. Cecilia
Glass Glazing Type Panel at 9540mm width x 3600m height for garage door. It is a tender quotation request. Must reply by end of month.
We install traditional overhead garage doors, mostly mid to high end carriage house style. We have a need for a 15 x 7' 5" carriage house design that would benefit from a one piece hydraulic or possibly a bi fold system. My thought is to have the wood stain grade door (approx. weight 400 lbs.)attached to one of your steel frames and Schweiss one piece hydraulic or bifold systems. Since we have no experience with this type of product, we would prefer to sub out our first install. Do you have an experienced installing dealer in our area?
I have a design for a series of standard size garages. I want a cool operator and am looking at a hydraulic ram solution. The exterior finish is a blind cedar wall where the door wants to effectively disappear. alignment of the exterior finishes is important to the look. Thought you might have the product I needed via your Schweiss bifold or hydraulic models. Please let me know.
I am building a garage on the side of my house, and looking to keep that look of a normal house for 'athesics' appeal. Looking for a estimate on your bifold door to get the ball rolling. I want a door that opens and closes with the least amount of noise, so when my wild daughter comes home at 3 a.m. she doesn't wake me and mom up. Thanks, Mark
I have a garage door opening that is approx. 6'8" high and 11'9" wide with a ceiling to door opening of 6". I have the following questions. 1. Is it possible to install a Schweiss bi-fold door in this small opening with such a small ceiling clearance? 2. Is it possible to have an operator for the door? 3. What is the distance from the garage floor to the door when it's in the fully open position for the above heighth? 4.Is the door all metal construction and is it possible to put wood on the exterior? 5. Approx. cost for such a door. Any other information you can provide me would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Chas.

Hello LOVE your Schweiss designed Long Island Corten steel doors. Firstly I am from the UK and secondly can these be scaled to a domestic garage door? Do you have distribution in the Uk as I haven't seen anything like this available over here? Thanks Judith
We would like to do a Schweiss bi-fold strap door on the garage. The opening is 15' 11 1/2" x 6' 6 1/2". The height above the exterior of the door opening is 1' 3". There is a large header above the door opening as the rafters run to it rather than across the garage. Was curious about cost, shipping and delivery time.
Looking for a residential garage door system such as yours. The room will be heated and also used as flexible space. Don't want the traditional rails and opener on the ceiling. Interested in a product such as yours. Not much familiarity here on the east coast amongst dealer or contractors with anything but the traditional designs. Your web site gave me lots of ideas, you guys at Schweiss do it right!

I am looking for a 8x9 Schweiss bifold liftstrap door with a remote opener for my home garage. Can you send me some examples and prices.
New residential garage to house 30' RV. 10' x 14' high door needs to "blend" into neighborhood, which consists of all 7' high sectional doors. Current idea is to make the lower 7' look like a standard metal residential sectional to match an adjacent two car Schweiss bifold door. The upper 7' portion needs to match, and preferably be flush with, the surrounding wood siding which is cement board lap siding. If this is possible, is it also possible to have the lower portion recessed to look like a normal recessed sectional door?
Need quote for a Schweiss bifold door for garage, no windows insulated with weatherproof flush mount over a 15' x 7' opening. Opening has 18'' on both sides and 24'' to eve. Want good seal and speed that your unique strap system provides.

I am building a house with a drive through garage. Siding for house is a green natural slate roofing tile, with some vertical wood siding, and cedar trim at edges, a few bands, and around doors and windows. Garage is 66' long and 34' wide with a 12x14' bifold door and a 10x10' tall drive-through door on each 34'wide endwall. (4 doors total) I wish to have about 1/3 of each door have glass for natural daylighting in the garage. I was thinking to put in carriage doors instead of the typical overhead door, but my son (this house is for him, a disabled Navy vet operating from a wheelchair now) suggested that Schweiss bi-fold liftstrap insulated doors with remote opener might be best. What do you have for our situation? This building is energy conservative, with SIP panel construction and with lots of other neat features (in-roof gutter system, snow melt sidewalk surrounding it, elevator, solar heating, off-grid, concrete countertops, etc.) and I expect it to get good press for meeting needs of Disabled Vets, high quality construction, and new energy efficiency levels. I got Minnesota windows and doors, so I might as well get Minnesota built garage doors too? let me know your thoughts. thanks, Zachary
Can I get a manually operated bi fold for my home garage? Size is 16 x 7. If not, could you give me the cost, on a cable or lift strap Schweiss door including hardware and installation by one of your crews?
I'm doing some preliminary investigation into garage doors. I need to replace a "standard" residential 2 car garage door and am looking to maximize my interior headroom for a vehicular lift and a Schweiss bifold would fit the bill perfectly. Do you build that small of a size with lift straps and what price range approximately would it come in at?

I am interested in a Schweiss bi-fold 2-car garage door and opener system. I am modifying a garage to add a car lift and don't have overhead room for a traditional garage door and track system. I want something fairly basic that can replace a normal 2-car garage door. I would like at least a ball-park price to know if it is an option and also would like to know more about what is required for install - tracks, rough framing dimensions, etc. Thank you, George
Hi- My company used your Schweiss bifold and hydraulic door products on a college project (Westmont College) recently, and I am wondering about sourcing a Schweiss bi-fold strap door for my garage. We have completely torn down the house and have rebuilt it almost as new. The 'skin' of the house will be 1" x 6" horizontal cedar siding, raised up off the building envelope 3/4" by vertical furring strips (hence the waterproofing paper is the actual skin, and the cedar is just a rainscreen). Anyhow, my husband and I are hoping we can afford a Schweiss door. The header size is a 4" x 12" beam, and the rough opening is around 15' 7" w x 8' h. I understand there are clearance issues with the folded door, so I am wondering if it makes sense to install the door higher on the front of the header or to go with one of your one piece hydraulic doors. Is that possible? The jambs on either side of the opening are not wood - they are steel hardy frames, I believe around 3" thick, made from 1/4" steel. I can check to be sure. We would skin the Schweiss frame with 3/8" Luon or marine grade plywood, paint it black, then install our cedar to match the rest of the house. Can you provide an estimate for the door as a bifold and hydraulic if you think that will work better? No need for a remote control, just the basic motor. In case clearance is an issue...can you also provide a quote for one of your Red Power hydraulic motors? Thanks! Dalia
We are designing a custom (modern) residence, including a bi-fold door at the garage. Could you please provide CAD details of your Schweiss Door products for our use in detailing the garage? Thank you, Kyle

I talked to Schweiss Doors in 2008, I am looking into a Schweiss garage door. I have my garage up and I think I need the door. My opening is 19' x 11' high and I can bring it in to 18' if I need to for standard pricing etc. Can Julie or someone get back to me about this door? I'm not sure if I want to go with the Schweiss bifold or hydraulic. Thanks Todd
I am designing a new 2 car garage addition for a mid-century modern property in Palm Springs, CA.

I need specifications and physical sizes for a Schweiss insulated bi-fold door, motor, cables, etc. to provide a bi-fold door for a 17'-6 wide x 7' high opening.

I have a 1 car attached garage, over the years (when the kids were younger) we turned the garage into a play room. We replaced the garage door with a standard sliding glass door. The kids are gone and I want my garage back to restore my 65 Mustang. With the inside and outside of the garage having been redone, I can not put a regular garage door back in with out major reconstruction. The Mustang will fit thru the rough opening, if you take out the door and remove all the hardwear. The door is under the gutter side of the garage. I would need a Schweiss bifold new door installed. Any info would be helpful. Thanks
My wife and I are remodeling an existing house and adding a large one car (19wide x 24deep x 13high) and want to explore the possiblity of using one of your bifold garage doors, 8 high by 10 wide before framing. My interest is to keep the door outside the garage so I can stack cars two high with a lift. I also want to be able to blend the outside with the other garage doors which will be replaced. I got your name from a friend who has your Schweiss bifold liftstrap door on his airplane hangar (he really likes it) and I then went to this website. Can you give me an idea of cost, including opener, and the time needed for delivery once the order is placed? The 8ft by 10 ft size is the full opening I have before any framing for the door is done. How much height would a bifold take when folded, how about the one piece door? Thanx
I am looking for a custom motorhome bifold garage door that apears to be a carriage door only with siding bolted to the upper portion of the door. Please call me I can send you pics. Thanks, Marvin
Am considering replacing a garage door with a Schweiss liftstrap remote operated bi-fold door. Dimensions are ~ 15'H x 10'W. I would want a personnel door in the bottom panel. Please email some approximate pricing/options. Thanks
I'm planing to build a 35 x 45 garage. I need one Schweiss bifold door with 14'w and 14' clearance. The other 12'w and 8' clearance. Are the door measurements the size of the physical door or the opening. The building will be re-bar reinforced poured concrete. Insulated Concrete Forms (ICF) is being considered. Since it is new construction, I can pour the columns and header to support any load for hydraulic doors but favor the liftstrap bi-fold depending. After watching half the bible belt being blown away by tornados I'm going poured concrete for the high wind load. Which of your overhead doors, one piece or two piece, can be made to the highest wind loading? Do you have (hint - giving away a million dollar idea here) a 12 inch wide x 14 feet high "hinged door" that rests against the outside of the building on both sides of the bi-fold or hydraulic door, that can be flipped (swung, closed, etc.) 180 degrees to cover the side edge of the door. This should be a manual operation and be able to be locked in position. This would provide a wind/rain seal to both sides of the bifold door and provide strength to the door edges for a higher wind loading. I'm sure you already have temporary pole braces from the header to the floor to brace the door every so many feet along it's width. A common thing on garage doors here in Florida. I'm still in the planing stage. I have not, yet, found a contractor who does ICF in south west Florida. How can we work together on this project? Calvin

Have a project in the city of Glendale, CA that has lower ceiling height than a typical 8'-0" garage.

We would like to use a bifold door but only have a 12" header. Is there optional hardware that will allow the door to open higher.

We were previously in contact with Jerry from Schweiss regarding specification and pricing for two garage doors, to be installed at a custom residential project in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada. We had received a full preliminary bi-fold door quote/specs from Jerryin late 2007 (see attached for reference). We are prepared to place an order for these doors soon, but I want to review the specifications/sizes, etc with you again and get a final revised quote before we proceed. See attached file "garage doors 09-03-10.pdf" for all plans, sections, details, etc with dimensions forreference (7 sheets total). As per the previous quote, we need:-two (2) schweiss bi-fold doors for new construction (steel structure)-both are bottom drive w/ cables (the straps are acceptable if they are white, - please advise)- truss design to be interior-we require full delivery and installation by schweiss Thanks

Thank you.Best regards

You will note that it is a small door and we would like to extend the door and bottom roller tube beyond the opening and truss stiffeners to allow the door to cover the front of the building flush. Please provide a quote or estimate for this door and any input you would like to offer to our approach. Thanks, -Jeff
That was fast. Yes, I have looked at your website. I realize you can do more or less any dimensions, but for the immediate purposes just think in terms of a series of single and double bifold garage doors, all of which would be the same height of between 11 and 12 feet. Regards, Bill

Dear Madame or Sir, I am designing a Garage with some large garage doors and have some questions: 1. Will your system work for a garage door that is 44' wide and 10'-8" tall? 2. In the open position, at what angle do the bifold doors sit? 3. Is there a limit to the cladding thickness? We would like to use something that is 2 3/4" thick. Thanks

I am looking for a garage door 7ft by 23ft wide, without the unsightly hardware of an overhead door. Your web site describes that your new Red Power pump units can be mounted anywhere and off to the side. That may be just the ticket. The opening is supported by by a wooden engineered truss but I do not know its weight bearing capacity. The builder said that the truss should be able to support sliding doors. A price quote and/or suggestions will be appreciated.
I am looking for a residential hydraulic one piece garage door that I can mount to the outside of the door opening.
The interior of garage has 10' ceilings. I have 9 foot tall RV that needs to go inside. Current door is 8 tall x 18 wide. I can increase the door opening to 9'6". Will your hydraulic doors work for this? I currently have a cedar door built on a metal frame. Is this possible with your door. If you supply the metal frame, my builder can add the wood. If that's not possible (due to weight or other reason ) I will go with a metal door and paint it. What is your price & delivery for something like this. I live near Dallas Texas.

We are working on a six unit apartment building with a garage for 8 cars. We want to face the front of the garage, including the garage doors, in translucent polycarbonate sheets with as few seams as possible. Your hydraulic doors seem like a good fit in terms of of appearance, but if you have any information on their use in a small, residential setting with wood stud construction as opposed to large agricultural and aviation uses, it would be helpful.

I am currently designing a new home with a very large attached garage that will accommodate my Motorhome ( 13' high x 36'long x8'wide) The garage door must be large.( Probably 40' wide by 13' high). I realize that there are many factors involved in pricing, but I need a ball-park estimate in order to determine if such a door is feasible. I intend to insulate the door since I live in upstate New York, and the winters can be quite cold and windy. Would it be possible to obtain a ball park estimate on such a door?
Our carport opening is 8' high x 24'wide. I would like an estimated cost for a Schweiss bi-fold door to fill this opening.
We are designing a garage door which needs to have a flush appearance from the outside, and does not project in to our 9 foot ceiling height. The door needs to be 9 feet high but does not need vertical clearance of 9 feet when open. I would favor the bi-fold door because of smaller clearance that is needed in front of the door, but I'm worried that it can't achieve the flush look of a hydraulic door. Please let me know what my best options are. Thank You.
Would like to install your door on my garage, the opening is 16'w x 7' h . what would be my price range.
I have an existing carport that I want to enclose into a garage. There's a beam in the center of my carport with two posts supporting it, and I want to frame for two seperate folding doors. From the concrete to the underside of the joists is 8ft, and to the underside of the center beam is 7'4". The width dimensions from where the outside curb walls will be, to the center of the existing support beam are approx.;12'8", and 11'6". How wide do I need to make the left and right curb walls, and the wall dividing the two doors? Also, I plan to run a 12"w parallam beam from end to end, and run the center beam into it?? Can the doors be mounted directly to the parallam? And also, how far down does the door sit when it is fully opened? That's it for now. Thanks.
I am in the process of planning for a 2 car garage. I have drawings for a 24ft deep X 28ft wide garage with a 10ft wall and a 14ft peak. I want an 8h x 16w door, but an overhead roll up will take away space from an automotive lift. Your door seems like the solution. Can you give me a quote for a 8X16 door, with straps and auto opener, shipped to Merrick, NY 11566? - Thank you.
I'm interested in converting my standard garage doors to bi-fold doors. I want to add lifts to my garage and the doors are in the way. I have three standard, single garages.

I have a 26 X 34 garage with a standard 10' garage door. I own a motorhome that is 10' 3" and so will not fit in the garage. Inside he bottom of the rafters are high enough for the motorhome to clear but not enough higher for a standard roll up garage door with rails. Do you have bi-fold door installations for residential garages like my application? I needs a size about 10' wide by 11' high. If you have such a door, whiuch might it's price be? P.S. I have already accounted for the work that would be needed to increase the existing door header height.

I would like to explore the pheasability of installing a three car bifold garage door (I am assuming bifold) The overall width would be approximately 28' and clear height at approximately 10'-11'. These dimensions I will confirm upon my arrival home tonight. I have digital pictures showing current reconstruction of the premises which will show the existing/new steel spanning the distance that I am still contemplating whether or not I should abandon my search for a three car garage door. The website gives me some hope that a bifold door would work which brings me to this inquiry. I have the structual calculations for the existing span/steel recently installed. The best way of contacting me would be the mobile #. Thank-You Sincerely John V.
I am looking for a garage door for my house. The current opening is about 15'6" and 7' high. I don't want to take up any room in the garage, so we are considering building out or putting the door outside of the current opening, so the door size can be larger and so that we don't lose any height going in. What kind of openers are needed? What room is required for the opener?

We are looking for a 10' wide by 5' tall hydraulic lift door to be installed over the upper part of a truck garage door that is 10' wide by 12' tall. The idea is to mask the height of the door and make it appear like a standard garage door. We will cover the door panel(s) with the same siding as on the building. We also want a motorized opening system for this door. This door should not interfer with the movement of the existing 10x12 door.
My client likes your bi-fold doors for his new garage. Do you sell through a distributor, or should I direct my garage door contractor to buy directly from you? Also, I need to spec these doors -- they will need insulation and to be covered with 22 guage oxidized, corrugated steel (to match rest of building detail). Is there someone who can work with me so my spec doesn't leave anything out and is good to go? Please email or call. Thanks. Douglas W.

I want to put a bi-fold on a new garage I will be building next year and need to get more information on design specifics. I expect the door will be 9-10' wide and 9' high. I want to be able to drive in with canoes on top of my van and store them suspended from the garage ceiling - thus the desire for no support system as required for roll-up doors. Construction will be new so design is open at this point. I expect wood frame with concrete block columns between doors (probably a 3 door garage with the bi-fold in the middle). Steel columns could be placed along side or in front of the block columns to support the door. Do you have a design book that provides the data I need to work out the design details?

I am planning an auxilary garage/shop to be used to restore/ maintain my hobby automobiles. It will essentially be an oversize two-car garage. The door opening will be around 9 ft high and 10-12ft wide. I need full clearance inside for a lift. I saw your ad in Flying magazine which makes the bi-fold door look ideal for my purpose. Can the door be made to match my existing (wood door) architecture style? Any special construction techniques required? I am in the Sacramento area --- any local dealers or installers? This is not an immediate project, I am collecting design ideas for when I have a little more time for my hobbies --- So a general brochure with basic cost, design & construction requirements will be sufficient for the present. Thank you!
