One Double Door or Two Single Garage Doors? Factors to Consider

Homeowners who want a two-car garage have two options when it comes to garage doors: one double door or two single garage doors. There are many things to consider when you’re trying to decide between these two types of garage doors. Knowing the differences can help you make the right choice for your needs.

Maneuverability

Single car garage doors can feel tight when you’re trying to fit your car into the garage. A double door gives you a lot more room to maneuver your car into the space. Do you get nervous when trying to fit your car into narrow spaces? Then you might enjoy a double door, which will give you a lot more room for straightening your car when you’re trying to enter the garage.

Service Considerations

There’s something to be said for having two doors instead of one. When you have two single garage doors, you’ve always got a backup door, even when one door breaks down.

This reduces the urgency of getting the garage door repaired and makes it easier to get your door fixed on your timeline. If you’re very busy and sometimes have a hard time getting home maintenance addressed right away, two single garages door may be better for you.

Appearance

Double doors draw a lot of attention because of their sheer size. If you don’t want your garage door to be the focus of your home’s exterior, consider single garage doors instead. You can further downplay the appearance of your garage by painting your doors the same color as your home’s siding. By coordinating the color of your garage doors and your siding, you can help your garage doors blend into your home.

Mixing and Matching Sizes Is an Option

Remember that you have options! If you’re not happy with the choices that have been presented to you, you can always choose one double door and one single door, for a three-car garage. Talk to your garage door installer to find out more about how you can make this work in your home
