Ideal garage size based on the number of cars to park.
· For a garage attached or detached from your house, around 12 x 22 feet, the width of the most common door is between 8 and 9 feet. As for the height, it’s normally from 7 to 8 feet. However, regarding height, it can go up to 12 feet, for those who might like to park a recreational vehicle (RV).
· For a shed, the best size for installing a aluminum garage door is 8 x 14 feet. Then the garage door would be 6 x 6’6
· For a garage attached or detached from your house of around 18 x 24 feet, most popular width for a garage door is 16 feet. As for the height, it is 7 or 8 feet. If you have an RV, the door can go up to 10 feet.
· When you have a double garage door and your garage is on the front of your home, the door becomes a major design element. Putting 2 two single doors can lessen the impact of one large door, allowing a nicer balance between the doors and the rest of the house. It is all a question of taste.
· If for one reason or another, your 16-foot garage door cannot open, two cars can be stuck inside the garage. In the same situation but with 2 single garage doors, it would be almost impossible.
· If you live in a cold climate, a double garage door lets more cold air into the garage than a single door, which drops the temperature of your garage more rapidly.
· The price of 2 single doors comes to just about the same as one double door. The difference comes down to if you want to equip both the single doors with an electric opener.
· Garage can provide residential doors based on the size you need from 4 to 20 feet wide (to the nearest inch), and from 6 to 12 feet high (in one- or three-inch increments), which will save you carpentry costs for preparing the door frame.
· Garage doors are also insulated and very weatherproof, providing a thermal resistance value of R-10, 12, or 16. This is extremely practical if you heat your garage. You thus save a considerable amount on your electric bill.
