There’s no doubt that converting two garage doors into one can certainly be an investment, but for many families, it is an investment well worth it. When considering the option of replacing two garage doors with one, it is important to know the advantages so that you can make the most appropriate decision for your lifestyle and budget.
The Benefits of a Double Garage Door vs. Two Single Garage Doors
1) Double garages allow for wider vehicles and give apprehensive drivers a boost in confidence.
The space that can be created from converting twin garage doors into a larger single door is great for parking sizeable vehicles. Additionally, one larger garage door undoubtedly provides nervous drivers with a peace of mind, providing more wiggle room when pulling up or back into the garage. That means no more dents or scratches to your vehicle.
2) Double doors provide more walk-around space.
Turning two single garage doors into one not only makes getting your vehicle into the garage easier, it also provides comfortable walk around room. Those entering or exiting the garage on foot can more comfortably walk around vehicles or storage.
3) One large door can be more affordable than two.
While the process of converting two into one is an investment, it pays off in the long run. From the outset, installing one larger garage door is more cost-efficient than installing two separate garage doors. Beyond that, maintaining one is easier and more affordable than two.
Convert Garage Door to Entry Door
Another conversion that many homeowners find interesting involves the desire to convert a garage door to an entry door. Although it’s possible to build up a garage door opening to fit a standard-sized entry door. This space is often best utilized for double doors or even a sliding door that fills the existing space, so consider a garage door conversion to French doors in this case. Additional options include converting half of a two garage system into a guest apartment, or doing an outdoor garage door conversion to the patio door if you’re going to expand your outdoor living space.
