What to Consider When Choosing a Garage Door Size

Starting a garage door renovation or installation project begins with selecting the material, style and panel design that works best with your needs and lifestyle. While much of this process is driven by personal preference, the following questions can help you narrow your focus:

  • What will you be moving in or out of the garage?
  • How much headroom will the door opener system need?
  • How tall are your vehicles?
  • How many vehicles will you store in the garage?
  • Will you use part of the garage for storage instead of vehicles?
  • Will the garage be attached to the home?

The answers to these questions will impact the size of your doors. Door size is a key factor in any garage door project.

Residential Doors

Standard garage door widths range from 8 to 20 feet, but most residential doors are either 8 feet wide by 7 feet tall or 9 feet wide by 7 feet tall for a single-car garage door, and 16 feet by 7 feet for a two-car garage door. Our wide array of residential garage door designs and materials gives you the creative power to make your property turn heads.

Commercial Doors

Industrial buildings most often require larger or custom-size garage doors. Again, you will want to consider the purpose of the space to help you decide what kind of door system you require. Think about the type of equipment you will be storing and if a truck will need to fit into the space. Overhead Door Co. of Burlington’s commercial garage doors come in widths of 30 to 41 feet and heights of 28 to 32 feet. (Side-folding security grilles have no width limit.)
