Stu worked me thru what I needed last Summer. bow
I used Liftmaster 8500 jackshaft mounted openers on new doors.
You can see them in the interior picture. I used Overhead Doors as a local supplier and installer.
They have worked flawlessy thus far. twocents
I wrapped the wood around the inside of the doors with .040 aluminum prior to the installation. It makes a much better finished project. The exterior trim was a PVC product.

Stu, can you recommend a wall unit for a single garage door?

I am not understanding that one so well?? Are you looking for a Jackshaft opener too?? If so the Liftmaster 8500 is the only one we use. Oh and now with WiFi too!! smile

Yes it's the only real choice for doing a wall mounted unit. Just make sure your door works pretty easy as they are not a rough duty unit. I sell and install them a lot more now. People with car lifts love them!!
