When selecting a new garage door for your home or business, it’s more complex than picking one from a catalog. It’s important to consider many factors when deciding on the best door for you, including style and material, but most importantly, size.
Part of keeping your garage secure and safe is making sure your garage door fits properly.
At Overhead Door Company of Greater Cincinnati™, we help homeowners and business owners choose the right garage door for their property for maximum protection.
How To Find the Right Size Garage Door for Your Home
When preparing for a new garage door installation, sizing for your new door is primarily affected by three factors:
- The size of your home: Keeping in mind your home’s size is important when selecting a new garage door. The larger your home, the larger the garage door will need to be to fit your home’s aesthetic and style.
- Your garage placement: When choosing a door, consider your garage’s placement. Size and style may depend on whether the garage is attached to your home or the positioning of the building on your property.
- Your garage capacity: Depending on whether you have a one-, two- or three-car garage, you may require different door sizes and styles. This may include having more than one door to provide multiple points of access.
Standard Garage Door Sizes
When you’re in the market for a new garage door, our expert garage door contractors will guide you through the available options. While not all styles of doors are available in every size, we’ll ensure your size requirements are accurate before selecting styles, colors, materials and more.

Commercial Garage Door Sizes
For commercial garage doors, it’s important to keep size and placement in mind as the function of the garage will impact your selection. Some garages may only need space for regular vehicles or tools, while others may need to fit large trucks or work vehicles.
All these factors play a role in selecting the best option for your commercial property.
While fewer size options are available for commercial garage doors, these can be made much larger than standard garage doors. We provide garage doors sized at:
