Guide to Garage Door Sizes

guide to garage door sizes

In mountain states like Arizona, 54.4% of all residential homes built in 2017 featured two-car garages, according to the National Association of Home Builders. Three or more car garages are included in 36.6% of homes built. Only a small percentage of homes have garages that accommodate one-car (3.9%) or oversized vehicles (5.1%). Whether you’re building a home or looking to upgrade your existing garage doors, here is everything you need to know about standard and custom-designed garage door sizes.

Standard Garage Door Sizes

Single Car Garage Doors

Most single car garage doors start at widths of 8 feet and heights of 7 feet, allowing plenty of room for a standard, full-size or similar car class. One-car garage doors of this size may present a challenge for parking larger vehicles such as SUVs, trucks, and vans. Single car garage doors can be custom ordered to accommodate these vehicles though. All doors are constructed with high-quality materials from leading manufacturers.

Double Car Garage Doors

If you have more than one vehicle, or your sole vehicle is slighter larger in size, you will require a double sized door. Two-car garage doors are usually 16 feet wide with a height of 7 feet. Heights of 10 feet are also available. Taller doors are best for lifted vehicles or vehicles with installed roof racks. Double car garages are suitable for homeowners who desire added space for storage or alternative uses.

Triple Car Garage Doors

When it comes to housing more than two vehicles, most homeowners choose to have one double door and one single door installed, while others prefer three single doors. Residents can custom-design these doors in the sizes mentioned above. Triple car garages are ideal for parking cars and all-terrain vehicles or boats while having plenty of space left over for storage and home workshops.

Custom Designed Garage Door Sizes

Oversized Garage Doors

Oversized doors are required for recreational vehicles or commercial buildings. These types of doors can be as big as 32×24. When designing an oversized door, it’s important to consider the size of the vehicles you’ll be regularly parking, as a Class A motorhome has an average height of 10 feet and a length of 21 to 40 feet. You will need to add clearance to these values to ensure a proper fit. Oversized garage doors are always custom designed and installed.

No doubt they are the best garage door company in the valley. Had them out to replace an opener, springs, rod and gave me a very good quote to add a 2nd opener on the small door. Cody was the technician doing the work, great guy, very helpful and took his time explaining my options.

Really saved our night. When we discovered the spring had broken on our garage door, locking our cars inside, it was a stressful situation. At first we thought we’d have to wait til morning but Arizona’s Best Garage Door got technicians over the same night, fixed the door at a fair price, and got us unstuck in time for me to pick up my teenager (saving us Uber money). They did a great estimate and stuck to it. And when my big dog barked at strangers in the house they both took time to put him at ease. It was an excellent resolution to our little emergency

Google verified job · Very responsive ! I am the landlord and this is a rental for me. It was almost as if I was there but didn’t have to be. Travis communicated with me, sent pictures/video, cared about my budget, went above and beyond with a temporary fix until a replacement door could be installed. Made sure I benefited from current incentives, price was reasonable. Travis was my main point of contact and could not have been better. I have never given any service 5 stars. REALLY impressed and positive about this experience. Thank you so much !

Tim & Cody were great. Cody explained everything in details and terms I could understand. Cody made special accommodations for my handicap and made me feel at ease with his professionalism. He is dedicated to his craft and it shows. My only complaint would be with google for only letting me rate up to 5 stars when they deserve a lot more. Great company, excellent service, could not of dreamed of any better. Thanks a Million Guys!!

I’m not one to post or post comments but I have to Arizona’s Best Garage Door has DEFINITELY lived up to its positive reputation that others have commented on. Our spring broke on the garage door. We replaced the spring, cable and opted to get a new opener. I experienced the same great customer service from the beginning when the appt was scheduled over the phone to the moment when the technician Travis completed the work. Travis was friendly and thorough to explain the operation of the wi if opener we installed. I would use this company again and highly recommend to anyone in need of garage door repair.

Came out and completed requested repairs on my garage doors and as completing inspection, found several other ares that they recommended replacement parts. Most of the parts were original to the home (1995) so I wanted peace of mind that our doors would function with no issues moving forward. Our technician, Travis, took the time to explain what he saw and was very through in his work. Thanks again and will highly recommend.

Fast, fair, friendly. Understanding I’m a baller on a budget. They communicated any needs I may also need but didn’t pressure any sales. I like that. There was a training session going on with a newbie worker and they hire some outstanding people. This place is legit. Finally, the communication from their dispatch was outstanding. I wasn’t nervous about price or nothing. They were straight forward. Good stuff guys!
