svg210- Although I'm not in the construction business I was always told by builders that driveways, foundations, etc, are usually 3500 psi .

You could always contact the builder.

The builder should be able to tell you,
I used to work for a civil engineering company and I used to pick up and test the concrete cylinders to make sure that met the required psi (whatever they wanted it to be)

From what I remember (it's been 12 years) from the 100s of cylinders I tested, they ranged from 2800-5500psi.

Yea, definitely 3500psi.

Edit: Oops, I might be wrong. Was thinking of something else, but I'd be curious to hear from others.

If poured in past few years, you have a minimum of 3000psi. The concrete provider typically uses a 3500psi blend that is weakened with the water being added. An oversupply of water weakens the mixture but not below 3000psi. The garage floor will support a 3000psi requirement.

How tall is their garage?
We have a lift and it is a great investment, especially when you do most repairs yourself.

You will have lots of new friends too

tell me about it, when me and my sister owned a house, I would get lots and lots of moochers, Of course I was the one dumb enough to cook, provide, and clean up after, and it was almost every other weekend. Sow my window of Opportunity came when my sister moved out, I transferred the house along with some collateral of course, and a few months later thats when the whole economy collapsed.
wow did I veer off topic LOL, but any way, their clearance is about 7'5'' at the garage door opener, and about 9'' clearance overall.
