How Wide

Unfortunatley, the widest single doors you can get for a garage are usually only 16' wide.

Considering that with any vehicle larger than a small coupe or sedan, mirror to mirror widths are almost 8 feet wide and a 16' wide double door does not leave enough room for two cars to comfortably enter and leave a garage.

Your better choice today would be to install 2 minimum 10 feet wide doors to independently serve each vehicle imho.

This is from the link provided;I do not have a standard size door. Can you make a door to fit my needs?

Standard door widths are 8', 9', 10', 12', 14', 15', 15'6", 16', and 18'. Some models can be custom ordered in 2" increments (8'2", 8'4", 8'6", etc.). Check with your local dealer or retailer for custom width/model availability. Standard door heights are from 6' to 8' in 3" increments, except for 7'3". Most residential models are now available in extended heights up to 12". Check with your local dealer or retailer for custom height/model availability.
