All-glass garage doors are the rage. They’ve been featured on television design shows and you’ll see them all the time on Instagram and even for real in restaurant patios.
More and more often, this hot new trend is appearing in traditional homes, vacation cottages at the beach in the mountains, and even in non-traditional spots like restored cabins and barns. The all-glass garage door makes visitors turn their heads, which is all the more exciting since these doors are practical, adaptable, and versatile.

However, have you ever seen a really small garage door used in such an innovative way?
Where Did an Idea Like This Come From?
“Our customers are a great couple who loves to receive family and friends and entertain. They love cooking big meals too. But they didn’t like at all that they had to walk with plates and covers and stuff from their big kitchen to their patio door, located in their dining room, and then on their deck.” – Linda Martin, designer
Her clients wanted something that was attractive, serviceable, and unique: some type of divider between the sunroom and the kitchen through which food could easily be passed.
“ I knew very little about panoramic garage doors. Well, about garage doors overall, to be honest. But when I walked through the door at All-Mont Garage Doors, I met a team of passionate people who took the time to listen to my weird ideas and transform them into technically smart, gorgeous reality. ”
It’s worth noting that, if you’re dealing with really good quality garage doors, there is no default standard size. Typically, the size of a single garage door is 9x7 feet. A double garage door , usually, is 16x7 feet. With better quality doors and installers, however, the garage door is made to fit your particular measurements.
Whether you need a door that’s four feet wide to one that’s 20 feet wide (to the nearest inch, or vertically if you need a door from six to 12 feet (in one to three-inch increments), Garaga has the residential doors for you.
