Stone Barn With Wood Door

This eye-catching new stone barn gives every appearance of having been in place for 200 years. The right styling cues from the early 1800s are all in place including the wood PowerLift door with its crossbuck trim, small pane windows, faux iron hinges, and iron door handles.

We can help you achieve an aura of any era from modern to medieval on any new or existing building for personal or business use.

Contact us: we’ll help you design the ideal door or opening wall for your project with any type of siding or appearance you desire.

Before and after!


A PowerLift door is a ‘better than new’ choice for old buildings! This well-maintained Quonset hangar (see bottom picture below) had old sliding doors that were stuck open. The new PowerLift door with its windows and walk door greatly improves the hangar’s appearance and function. While taxiing in, the pilot can open it at the touch of a remote.

PowerLift retrofit door designs often increase opening width and clear entry height. Contact us about a PowerLift retrofit – you’ll add decades of usefulness to any older building.

It’s Easier To Clad And Trim A PowerLift Door

It will take much less time for you or your contractor to install siding on a PowerLift than any other door style. Our all-welded, one piece panels let you use full length, single sheets of any standard cladding material.
Since bifold doors have two panels, they’ll take about twice the time to cover and trim as a PowerLift door. Other doors have a central truss design, so both top and bottom panels must be nibbled to fit around truss components at every point of contact. This is time consuming, and difficult to do properly.
Our single panel design creates a far superior weather seal than any other door offers. Get in touch, and we’ll design the ideal door to suit any project you have in mind.

Every day is a PowerLift day!

All PowerLift doors are delivered and installed once they are built. Our professional door teams start out under the Northern Lights, on a stormy day in Florida, or across the Western mountains. When our day is through, your door is installed and operational.
PowerLift doors are not assembled with bolts, screws or other fasteners. We are the only manufacturer that builds a single piece, all welded door, ensuring structural integrity for a lifetime.
Contact us about any new or retrofit door project you have in mind!

PowerLift Support: Unavailable Anywhere Else At Any Price!

With PowerLift, you never have to try assembling and installing a door kit that shows up in pieces with sketchy instructions. Every PowerLift product is built, delivered, installed and supported by local PowerLift professionals you meet face to face.

At PowerLift, you won’t be anonymous with only an email address as a point of contact. Once our factory trained team has installed your door and made it operational, they’ll be sure you have their cell phone number before leaving your property. You’ll have a personal connection with them anytime need arises.
Contact us and start enjoying the seamless door experience thousands of PowerLift owners have learned they can depend on.

Wider Doors Make Access Easier.

Many customers ask for suggestions about door dimensions. Experience has shown us us that a wider door makes using any building more convenient.

Aviation hangars, truck garages, and farm machinery sheds often house multiple units that need to be moved in and out individually. The wider your door, the more likely it is that you’ll be able to move a specific plane, truck, or tractor without shifting a lot of other items out of the way.

PowerLift will build any size door you want or need. All our doors, from the largest to the smallest, have the tightest weather seal possible, require as little as zero headroom, and eliminate maintenance headaches.
Contact us anytime, and we’ll design the exact PowerLift door or wall needed for your personal application. We can supply both the appearance and function you have in mind.

Any opening, any size, any sort of structure.

We receive many inquires starting with the words “Is it possible…..”?  Is it possible to put a PowerLift opening in a container? in a canvas hoop building? in the heirloom barn my great-grandfather built? in an old Quonset building? In a new steel building? in the rec room of our lakefront home? in a horse barn? Our 30 years of design experience means our answer to your door and wall opening needs is an emphatic ‘yes”!
A PowerLift door lets you choose any design, any aspect ratio, in any size from large to small. You’ll have the tightest weather seal possible, the convenience of having no tracks or threshold across your opening, and no maintenance demands to hinder your enjoyment.
Contact us and we’ll design the ideal door or wall for the application you have in mind, ready to be clad with any sort of siding to produce the exact appearance you desire.

Unnecessary building height is costly.

Select a PowerLift door and you’ll eliminate the expense of an additional 2-5′ of building height required for headroom by overhead, fabric, tilt-up or bifold doors.

As you will see on projects shown here, PowerLift doors require as little as 0″ of headroom in either new or retrofit applications. Unnecessary building height affects heating and cooling costs as well, as there remains 3-4′ of unusable ‘dead space’ above the door opening.
Contact us and we’ll be glad to design a door that maximizes both the efficiency of your building and its ease of access.

PowerLift’s Annual Meeting Was Inspiring.

Once a year, PowerLift personnel from across North America spend two days together. During this time we have constructive, intense discussions centered on enhancing door and opening wall solutions for the various industry sectors we serve. This year we looked ahead to projects, plans, and product innovations for the future while reviewing details of unique installations from the past year.

Three of our exclusive electronic and hydraulic control suppliers were also present, showing us new products, recent developments, and providing in-depth training.
The combined experience and insight among those present at our 2022 Spearfish, SD meeting would be a credit to any Fortune 500 gathering.

We aren’t resting on our laurels, but are extending our lead at the cutting edge of the door and opening wall industry. Attendees agreed that we’re experiencing substantial business expansion in our architectural, aviation, commercial and agriculture divisions.
All those present returned to home base with a renewed commitment to provide the best solution for every door and wall project that comes our way over the next year.

New Year’s Resolution: Stop Struggling With Old Doors!

At PowerLift, a substantial part of our business is replacing doors that have become difficult to use. Sliding, bifold, fabric, and panel doors are easily replaced with a trouble free PowerLift door that opens at the touch of a button.

As you will see on each project shown here, PowerLift retrofits can increase your clear opening height and width. Our exclusive PowerLift outside mount doors install around the perimeter of your opening for zero headroom loss.
Contact us and we’ll help you design an ideal replacement door or opening wall on any building you own with doors that have become difficult to use.

Pool House Features Eight Glass Opening Walls.

The owners of this striking octagonal pool house, set high in the mountains among Ponderosa pines, chose to PowerLift create 8 opening glass walls for year round versatility and convenience. Three of these are full height and width at 15′ x 6′, the other three are bar top style measuring 15′ x 5′.

When closed, the reflective glass transforms these walls into works of art as they perfectly mirror the landscape, sunrises, sunsets, and cloud formations. Any or all of the PowerLift walls can be opened partially or fully to match the owners mood or adjust to weather conditions.
Contact us about the next opening wall project you have in mind! Your own personal wall doesn’t have to be clad in glass: any type of siding (or combination of sidings) can be easily included on a PowerLift wall system.


Please tell us about your glass wall project.


Faux sliders in PowerLift door.

From the road this new hip roof insulated shop presents a timeless look, even to the point of having traditional sliding doors. However, when the owners are using their shop, a 48′ x 16′ insulated PowerLift door opens at the touch of a remote for maximum access.

A PowerLift door is a blank canvas, offering you free rein for any artistic touches you’d like to add. Any style window, cladding, trim, mural, or aspect ratio is easily achieved.

Contact us and we’ll design the ideal door for your building project with any type of siding or appearance you desire.

Sketch out your idea and send it to us.

The genesis of this attractive PowerLift ‘Diamond M’ style retrofit door was a customer’s quick crayon sketch along with a picture of their building that had a damaged overhead door.

We pay close attention to every inquiry we receive about PowerLift doors, with or without an accompanying sketch! Just present us your vision in any form, and we’ll work closely with you to make it a reality.

Whether it’s a new building or a retrofit project, you will appreciate the expertise we have developed over the course of nearly 20,000 PowerLift door and opening wall installations.

Thanks for visiting us at Oshkosh!

It was a pleasure meeting so many of our PowerLift door customers last week in Wisconsin at the EAA Oshkosh show.

We also appreciate the many inquiries about and interest in PowerLift doors for both new construction and retrofit installations. PowerLift has the solution for every older hangar with worn-out sliding, bifold, or overhead doors.

Please contact us about a PowerLift door for your hangar door application. You will appreciate the confidence and quality our single source accountability and depth of experience bring to the table.

Old hangar before and after PowerLift!

A PowerLift door will make your old building feel and function like new! Access to this old hangar was via a complicated system of 6 overhead doors, which created large maintenance headaches. The center door was higher to allow taller tail aircraft access. All six doors were failing when the owner called PowerLift.

PowerLift designed a twin outside mount retrofit installation, substantially increasing clear opening height across the entire building. With a remote operator, pilots can now open either PowerLift door from the cockpit while taxiing in.

Contact us about a PowerLift retrofit – our extensive experience and personalized service will add a lifetime of usefulness to any building.
