What Size Should My Garage Door Be?

wood garage doors by signatureLegend has it that in 1896 when Henry Ford went to store his “horseless carriage” (aka vehicle) in a neighbor’s coal shed, he found the coal shed door to be too small, so he knocked out some bricks to fit his invention inside. At Overhead Door Company of Muncie, we don’t want you to have to do that, so we make it our business to install the right size garage door on every project.

Standard U.S. Garage Door Sizes

You’d be surprised at the range of garage door sizes that are considered “standard.” Widths can range from 8 to 20 feet. If you’ve ever eased a Ford Explorer into your garage and lost a side-view mirror, you can appreciate the value of wider garage doors.

  • 10′
  • 12′
  • 15′
  • 16′
  • 18′

You have fewer choices to make regarding your garage door’s height: Garage doors are usually 7-8 feet high. Double garage doors can usually accommodate SUVs, work trucks and larger sedans. The standard sizes are 16×7 feet, 14×7 feet or 12×7 feet. Single garage doors are typically 10×7 feet, 9×7 feet or 8×7 feet.

Commercial garage doors can be any size; a lot depends on the location and purpose. Standard widths are:
