What Garage Door Size is the Best for Your Home?

A garage door can transform your property by enhancing security and adding functional and aesthetic value. There are many options when it comes to designing and installing your garage door and this includes the size. Choosing the right size is crucial, whether you are replacing an old door or developing a whole new garage from scratch. Getting it wrong may lead to unexpected financial outlays or an impact on the functionality of your garage and your property’s street appeal.

At PDS Garage Doors, we provide and install a wide range of customisable garage doors in Melbourne. We can guide you towards selecting the most suitable one for your space, incorporating factors such as required garage door height and width and the choice between double garage size and single garage size doors. Our team is here to make the process as low-stress and simple as possible.

There is no one-size-fits-all door or standard garage size, but there are straightforward steps to take to find the correct fit. Find out what is involved in establishing the right door size and how we can help.

Key Factors to Consider When Choosing The Size of Your Garage Door  

When deciding which garage door to install, there are several things to consider, from security and climate requirements to aesthetic preferences. When assessing what garage door size is best for your home, the following questions are important to ask:

  • What items will be kept in the garage?
  • What size are these items?
  • Will the garage be used for activities other than storage, such as exercise or working from home?
  • How much can you spend?
  • Is your garage also a pedestrian access to your home?
  • How much space is there in front of the door?
  • How much headroom is there?
  • How much side room is there for structural support?
  • What is the height and width of the garage entry point?
  • What is the depth of the garage?
  • Is excavation or construction a possibility to alter the height, width, or depth available?
  • What surrounding structures, such as electrical conduits, structural beams, or shelves) may impact the garage door size?

What Are The Different Garage Door Sizes?

There is typically not a standard garage size, so our doors are customisable to ensure their compatibility with your space. This may involve factors such as your garage door width, the door design, and the amount of space required surrounding the door. One of our experienced and trained technicians can assist with a free measure and quote and discuss with you the types of garage doors that may suit your needs.

Garage doors come in different styles to accommodate function and aesthetic requirements and preferences, which means some types take up a different amount of space regarding aspects such as headroom and the distance available in front of the door opening.
