    36 wide insulated steel doors .

    36″ = SMART THINKING!

    32″ garage man doors are a terrible idea.

    I’ve never seen 32″ side doors. 36″ and 34″ galore.

    I own three houses with 32″ man doors in the garage.

    And here is where it gets really stupid…

    I personally replaced one of the doors…

    Jamb and all, including the jamb and jack studs (dry rot was the issue)…

    With another 32″ door.

    WTF was I thinking?

    I should have saw cut the foundation, hammer drilled and epoxy set another tie bolt, bought a new header, and installed a 36″ door, with a window, and a security grate behind the window.

    But no, I just replaced the door with existing, like for like. Dumb.

    As you can see, I’m still kicking myself for that.

    Different rules in your neck of the woods.

    You’re quite right. And I didn’t want to have to go through an Architectural Committee application process through the city and the HOA just to fix a sagging door. But I should have, as 36″ man doors in a garage are so much more useful… not the least of which is getting a wheelchair through the door with someone in it.

    Here’s some pictures of recent door jobs we have done for clients .

    You did the siding after?

    Only on the one door that was a job from bad water damage caused by bad deck flashing . I like to remove the siding around the opening when it need to be bigger then just cut the siding first helps with the finishing easier .

    Always willing to learn .
