Tek, that is what I was thinking as well. Too low or the door itself may be too short and therefore too low. There was a type that could get the same effect if the brackets were flipped or swapped or something...not sure. It has been way too long. I may recognize it if I see it.

I think it is too low too.. but I dont see how they can raise it much as the trusses will be in the way.. check the pic.--they are supposed to come out tomorrow to fix it some way.

They wont be able to raise it any, and that would be the proper fix. If youre worried about birds and critters you might be able to add some flashing on the front. It will lower the door opening tho---

Yup, that is what it is alright. The trusses are in the way and the door is mounted too low. Your door is too big for the building. Roll ups have to have a minimum of 2 feet for mounting space between the ceiling and door head. You are looking at a plug the hole type fix at best. The only real way to make it work would be to lower the door head cosmetically to cover the gap.

Wait....am I to assume the door works correctly and doesn't drag on the track at the top? That is a wicked angle on it.

Yes, it works fine.. I am not sure what they are going to do to try and fix it.. but the door header cant come down any, ..tractor's too tall.
