Single v. Double: Which Garage Door is Better for Your 2-Car Garage?

When it comes to selecting garage doors, homeowners often find themselves at a crossroads between single and double garage doors. Each option comes with its set of advantages and disadvantages. As your trusted garage door specialist since 1998, Affordable Garage Door, Inc. is here to guide you through this decision-making process, ensuring that you make the best choice for your specific needs.

Single Garage Doors: Aesthetics and Safety

One of the significant advantages of two single garage doors is their aesthetic appeal. They can add a unique charm to your home’s exterior, especially if you choose from our wide range of styles like the Canyon Ridge Collection or Modern Steel Collection.

Moreover, having two separate doors can act as a safeguard against malfunctions. If one door fails, you still have access to your garage through the other. However, there are some considerations to keep in mind. Single garage doors require two opener systems, which can lead to higher maintenance and repair costs. They also allow less natural light into your garage compared to their double counterparts.

Double Garage Doors: Space and Flexibility

Double garage doors, on the other hand, offer more space and flexibility in positioning vehicles. This can be particularly beneficial if you own larger cars or need extra room to maneuver. Plus, with our Avante Collection or Aluminum Full View Doors, you can enjoy increased natural lighting in your garage.

One of the cost benefits of double doors is that they require only one opener system, resulting in potential savings on installation and maintenance. However, it’s worth noting that if your double door malfunctions, you could lose access to your entire garage until repairs are made.

Our Recommendations for Two-Car Garages

For homeowners with a two-car garage, we generally recommend opting for a double garage door. The added space, flexibility, and cost savings outweigh the potential risk of a malfunction. To maximize natural light, consider our glass garage doors. And remember, with our extensive collection, you can customize the look of your double garage door to perfectly complement your home.
