Garage Pillar Removal

Many houses built throughout Perth in the 1970’s and 1980’s adapted the concept of the double brick garage. The most common solution for builders at the time was to use a variety of centre brick pillar designs which would not only provide support to the overhead brick work, but would allow the builder to fit two single roller doors to the garage, thereby providing dual access points.

As garage door technology improved toward the end of the 1980’s and engineering became more creative the introduction of the double tilt door and the sectional garage door replaced the need to use two single roller doors. Double Colorbond sectional garage doors are now the standard door for the majority of builders throughout Perth and Australia.

Over the last 20 years family vehicle sizes have increased significantly, which has resulted in the demand for increased garage openings. Specifically, the demands for garages with increased heights and increased widths. Many older style garages simply do not suit modern vehicles and can prove to be a headache for homeowners across the Perth metropolitan area.

Catering for the increased vehicle heights and widths is easy when building a new home, but what choices are there for people who have purchased pre-existing homes with these hold style garages with a centre pillar or dual archways?
