Shed door

I need to replace my shed door. Years of sun, not enough paint, and the wrong kind of wood, it is almost useless. What I would like, is one of those roll up steel doors, but that is out of my price range. It is a 4 ft x 7 1/2 ft. The door now is 2 2ft doors. Would it be better, to put just one big door, or two smaller doors again.

Pictures would be helpful. If you have problems posting them directly in the forum, put them on a free site like photobucket and post the URL.

A single 4' wide door or double 2' wide doors -- that's your call. Either way works, and I've done both.

Mod note: Pictures can not be posted directly to the forums.

I'd think the 2 doors would be simpler...since that's what you have now. Less issues with hardware changes and such. A single 4' door will put twice as much weight hanging from a single side.

Consider your clearance when the door swings also. A 4' door will require you to step back out of the way as it opens...the 2 footers, not so much.
