Garages ‘too small for mod­ern cars’ warn­ing

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

UP to three-quar­ters of re­cently-built homes with garages have garage doors that are too small to ac­com­mo­date mod­ern cars, a re­cent sur­vey has shown.

Now de­vel­op­ers are be­ing urged by the Door & Hard­ware Fed­er­a­tion to in­crease the width of the garage doors. The DHF say that de­vel­op­ers still de­sign and build new homes with 2134 mm (7ft) wide doors, which has been the stan­dard width for 40 years. But cars have been get­ting wider and the doors need to be at least 7ft 6ins.
