Garage too Narrow or Need More Parking Space?

Up to three quarters of recently built homes with garages have garage doors that are too small to truly accommodate today’s larger cars, a recent survey by the Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) has shown.

The federation carried out an informal survey amongst its garage door members which revealed that around 75 per cent of new homes with integral garages built in recent times have garage doors that are too narrow. And the DHF worries that developers are continuing to specify garage doors that are too narrow.

Double Garage too small for two cars? 

Whilst the survey and report above concerns single sized garage doors, some so called double garages can also be a little on the tight side for two cars. Here is a rather innovative solution that's available in the UK.
