John Greer’s answer
Measure height and length of SUV as these are the usual factors. Door clearance varies from house to house. When looking measure with the door up against the measurement takenon the height of the vehicle.
This is something I can help with when looking.

Hi Hu.lu1,

The typical garage, as defined by most cities and counties in the United States, is 20 ft by 20 ft - for a total of 400 sq.ft. The most common garage door is a single 16 ft wide door centered on one side of the garage.

High-end designers generally prefer larger garages and multiple, smaller doors. A common designer 2-car garage size is 26 ft wide by 24 ft deep. Instead of a single large door, such a garage would typically have two 8 ft or 9 ft doors along one of the long elevations.

So 20 x 19 is a little smaller than average size. But you might still able to pull in two cars but definitely going to be a tight fit!

Good luck!

It probably will be tight, but should work. Measure the car to check the length and width.
You probably won't get a lot of other things in the garage, but you should be able to get the cars in.

20x20 or 20x19 is pretty common, especially on 1985 and newer homes.

Sometimes on older homes you can find bigger. Maybe 20x25.

Hey, it depends on your parking skills... What i really mean is, it might get a little congested. You might also want to consider the space occupied by other stuff that goes into the garage.
So if you are considering the space only for mid size SUVs, i guess u should be fine..
