Garage Door Replacement - AFTER

In mountain states like Arizona, 54.4% of all residential homes built in 2017 featured two-car garages, according to the National Association of Home Builders. Three or more car garages are included in 36.6% of homes built. Only a small percentage of homes have garages that accommodate one-car (3.9%) or oversized vehicles (5.1%). Whether you’re building a home or looking to upgrade your existing garage doors, here is everything you need to know about standard and custom-designed garage door sizes.

Standard Garage Door Sizes

Single Car Garage Doors

Most single car garage doors start at widths of 8 feet and heights of 7 feet, allowing plenty of room for a standard, full-size or similar car class. One-car garage doors of this size may present a challenge for parking larger vehicles such as SUVs, trucks, and vans. Single car garage doors can be custom ordered to accommodate these vehicles though. All doors are constructed with high-quality materials from leading manufacturers.

Double Car Garage Doors

If you have more than one vehicle, or your sole vehicle is slighter larger in size, you will require a double sized door. Two-car garage doors are usually 16 feet wide with a height of 7 feet. Heights of 10 feet are also available. Taller doors are best for lifted vehicles or vehicles with installed roof racks. Double car garages are suitable for homeowners who desire added space for storage or alternative uses.

Triple Car Garage Doors

When it comes to housing more than two vehicles, most homeowners choose to have one double door and one single door installed, while others prefer three single doors. Residents can custom-design these doors in the sizes mentioned above. Triple car garages are ideal for parking cars and all-terrain vehicles or boats while having plenty of space left over for storage and home workshops.

Custom Designed Garage Door Sizes

Oversized Garage Doors

Oversized doors are required for recreational vehicles or commercial buildings. These types of doors can be as big as 32×24. When designing an oversized door, it’s important to consider the size of the vehicles you’ll be regularly parking, as a Class A motorhome has an average height of 10 feet and a length of 21 to 40 feet. You will need to add clearance to these values to ensure a proper fit. Oversized garage doors are always custom designed and installed.

Great Guys and Great Work

The tech was on time to the second I think, very professional and super nice Chris – nice work my friend!   The opener they selected for me is a terrific and great price, Wifi and the myQ app are great as well.

They sent someone out right away at 4:30pm on a Monday. Tre was our technician and did an amazing job getting our door back to working condition without breaking the bank. I will always suggest them to anyone who asks.

For the past few months, my garage door would not shut. It will close halfway get stuck and the motor would bring it back. Not to mention it sounded like a blender filled with nails while closing and opening. Finally decided to get it to check out and these guys were the first to respond. Had an appointment sent within 15 min. A technician named Jimmy came over the next day and got it all done. My garage door never sounded so silent and go down as smooth once new parts were added. Definitely will be recommending these guys!

This company is very responsive, contacted them on a Sunday night and they replied right away.  Then set an appointment at a time convenient for me.

Very polite and easy to work with.  Travis, the owner, is hands-on.

I had an extremely positive experience with this company, and I have to praise Michelle in the front office for her patience and customer service attitude.

When my 20-year-old Liftmaster garage door opener began to fail, I spent a ridiculous amount of time researching new openers and my options.  The logicboard wasn’t working – so the unit still moved the door up and down, but responded only to the wall switch and not the remote. While that was inconvenient, I had time to look around.

After months of exploration and repeated estimates, when I finally decided on a model, they didn’t have it in stock. Michelle quickly located one and offered an appointment the next business day.

The technician who showed up, Zach, was relatively new, but assured me that he had great training and mentoring by the company.  And so far, I am very pleased with the work.  I thought he was polite, clean, well-skilled, and astute — and at my request, also diagnosed and repaired a squealing in the door.  The door is quiet and the alignment is good.

I would definitely have them back for any additional work! (which I hope doesn’t happen soon!)

When it was time to change the garage door, we called these pros for help, and they responded to our needs immediately.

The team arrived exactly when they said they would, and explained everything they were going to do, along with different options for me. It took them an hour to complete the job, and it was amazing! Very precise and clean!!!

Will use them again for all my garage door needs!

Honestly, I haven’t had such great customer service in years. From the first phone call to the minute they left I never felt pressured, a hard sell or that I was being sold something I didn’t “need”. So informative and honest. So refreshing!! The background checks their employees for safety. They text/email your appointment time, when the technician is on the way, and the estimate. Makes the whole experience a positive one. Thanks, Travis, Chris, and Cody. Keep up the great work. You prove that great customer care is still important.

We were so thrilled with the excellent quality of service and quick response we received yesterday. Jimmy Tafoya was quick, honest, and pleasant. The door went off the rails so we called on a Saturday afternoon for emergency service. He fixed the problem in 2 hours. We thought we would need a new door it was so screwed up but he fixed it very well at a lower cost. We are very thankful.

My hinge was bent. Jay came out the same day. Repaired and realigned. Very efficient, knowledgeable, and did a great job. Would definitely call again for garage needs.

I wish this company provided other random services because I would use them for anything!

I sent a request for a quote via Yelp at 3:56 pm and received a reply from Travis at 3:57 pm. He said he could have a technician to my home between 4-6 pm That Day! Like within the next 2 hours. Before I committed, though I had to ask a few questions. First, could the technician please wear a mask and gloves because we have high-risk people in our home during Covid? Answer – no problem at all. Second, could you provide a ballpark estimate based on my description of the problem? Yup!

I then received a text with my appointment confirmation, and 20 minutes before the technician arrived, I received a lengthy text with a photo, background check information, and instructions on what to expect when he arrives. Then Jay called personally to let me know to expect him.

When he arrived, he looked at the job, gave me an estimate, and went to work. 20 min later, he was done, with no extra hidden fees. He accepted my credit card verbally so that we didn’t have any close contact.

The garage works perfectly!
