How wide can you make shed doors?
by: John

Hi Robert,

If it was my shed, I don't think I would go any wider than 5'. 6' wide shed doors are doable but they are going to be very heavy. Maybe you have a riding mower with a 60" mower deck and need the 6' doors. If that's the case, then I would certainly go with 6' wide doors. You would definitely need to make sure that the door opening framing is sturdy enough to support each of the 3' doors, and also you'll want to make sure you have heavy duty hinges to hang them with.

I have a ton of information on my site about building doors for your shed. When you're on my site, just look for the link on the left side.

I hope this helps to answer your question and thank you for visiting my site.
