It is an interesting concept. It seems like you would want to design the pergola to incorporate the tracks and be able to slide the door horizontally as a roof.

Have fun with your project, I think it could be great !

Hi Jason,

Thank you for your nice comment about our work!

I overhead doors are a commercial grade aluminum door, and I do not have a record of the manufacturer.
Hope this helps.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Inside, the main living space has two large aluminum windows that open like garage doors. Friends kayak right up to the doors when they stop by for visits. "My clients can watch the fireworks on the Fourth of July right out the doors; they set them off from a barge in the lake," says Nelson.
The owners of this floating house on Lake Union in Seattle tend to kayak instead of swim up to their home, but these large glass garage doors make it possible to dive from the living room.See the rest of this home
