Some sizes are more frequently returned than others, and they are referred to as “standard sizes”
The most popular widths are 8′, 9′, 10′, 12′, 14′, and 16′. 7′ and 8′ are the most typical heights. When it comes to selecting a garage door, these measurements are an excellent starting point. What criteria do you use to determine the size of your door? Is it based on an existing garage or a new one that you’re calculating?
If you’re seeking to buy a door for an existing garage, we can do the necessary measurement to find the right door for your needs. We will take into account things like the space available in your garage to install the tracks to lift the door, often known as merely lifts, that will allow the door to open, among other things. Various types of lifts are available, based on your requirements and the available space.
If you’re building a new garage, the first step is to figure out what you’ll do with it. It will assist you in determining the size of door you require. The width of the garage doors will be determined by how you want to use it.
For example, how many vehicles will you be parking in your garage and how big are they? Knowing what the garage will be used for can help us determine the door size you’ll need. Will your garage, for example, be utilized to store a car? Two automobiles? A motorbike or a recreational vehicle?
The garage door can be between 7 and 10 feet wide if it will only be utilized to store one automobile. While 7 feet is cramped, 8 feet is significantly better, and 9 feet makes parking and unlocking car doors a breeze. A 9′ or 10′ door would be appropriate if the vehicle is a pickup truck or other large vehicle. We can create doors in any size you like, with a minimum of 4 feet and a maximum of 20 feet being advised.
Garage door size I generally based on the garage size – but not always
The size of the garage door is usually determined by the size of the garage, although this is not always the case. Two garages of various sizes can have the same door size, as well as two garages of the same size not having the same door size. All of this is dependent on the preferences of the customer.
Single garage doors are available in widths ranging from 7 to 12 feet, while double garage doors are available in sizes ranging from 14 to 20 feet. If you wish to park two automobiles in your garage, we recommend a 16′ door since it will accommodate two cars without difficulty. Two automobiles can fit through a 14′ door, but they will be quite close together. It’s possible that you’ll have to place your automobiles at an angle so that they can both enter.
