Raleigh Garage Door Repair: Exploring Garage Types
Welcome back! In our last post, our Raleigh garage door repair experts began discussing the different types of garage classifications. Garages have a multitude of options for homeowners looking to add one onto their current or new home. There are different types of materials garages can be built with. In addition, they can also come in a variety of shapes and sizes, as well as with or without garage doors.
Among the different materials and styles of garages, there are also three different types of garage categories:
Today, we are going to go over each type and how they’re different. To take a look back at our previous posts, before moving on, visit them here:

As the simplest type of garage, single garages are usually a space that accommodates one average sized car. They’re rarely big enough for a truck or large SUV. There is usually enough space for the driver and other passengers to enter and exit easily, as well as fully open all doors of the car.
Twice the width of a single garage, double garages allow two cars to be parked side by side comfortably. In addition, there’s enough space for all passengers to open doors, enter and exit comfortably.
A tandem garage type is not as common as a single or double type. Mainly due to the inconvenience of not being able to move both cars at once, the tandem style garage isn’t always popular. A tandem garage offers parking for two cars, end to end, rather than side by side. In addition, tandem garages usually offer only one garage door.
While the limitation of only being able to move one car at a time is inconvenient, tandem style garages can work as long as there’s a little planning involved, before moving the vehicles.
