GarageTek: Garage Ceiling Options

When it comes to optimizing your space for garage storage, the number one area that is often neglected or overlooked is in the ceiling area. Some people may be concerned that having loads of weight suspended above the cars is not a good idea or it is not safe. The truth is, having overhead storage that is properly installed is a great way for storing seasonal items and large bulky items that will not get in your way compared to if they were on the ground. Also, there is a lot of room by the ceiling area depending on the size of your garage because you have two distinct spaces to work with. You can either use the area right above the tracks for the garage door, the area between the back wall and the garage door or both of them for the ultimate in overhead garage storage.

When it comes to looking for a company that offers overhead garage storage solutions, you want someone that offers a wide variety of options to meet many needs. GarageTek seems to be just that company.
