Garage Ceiling Storage – Installing garage roof storage is a great way to add more storage space to your home and not have to worry about tripping over objects or they possibly get wet in a flooded garage or basement. You can easily take the clutter out of your garage with storage above and still have space for your cars or a garage in the garage. It only takes an afternoon and a few basic tools and you can be on your way to having garage roof storage that makes your garage more organized and tidy.
Look for the structure on the roof of the garage where you want to hang the garage ceiling storage above. Make sure that you have plenty of space for storage and that you will not be affected by the garage door or a vehicle you park in the garage. If you have a finished garage roof you need to use a stud locator to find the structural beams. Mark the outer edges of the beams with a pencil for reference. Mark the location of the brackets and mounting screws with a pencil on the beam the shelf up.
Drill a pilot hole for the screws. Depending on the size of the garage ceiling storage there may be one or more mounting brackets to install on each roof beam. Use a set or drill with a small socket to drive the screws into the beams to tighten the clamps.
