Katy Residential Garages, Garage Doors and Openers

A modern one-car garage, in the USA.

In most American single family and town houses featuring a garage, the garage has a door on the side of the building for vehicles to enter and stay. Most garage doors open upward using and may be assisted by electric drive, usually either chain or belt, sometimes screw driven. These are usually remotely controlled from the resident's vehicle with a small radio transmitter.
Garages are usually connected to the nearest road with a driveway, but sometimes may face an alleyway. Interior space for one or two cars is typical, and garages built since the 1960s typically have a door directly connecting the garage to the interior of the house (an "attached Garage"). Earlier garages were often detached and located in the back yard of the house, accessed either via a long driveway or from an alley.
In the past, garages were often separate buildings from the house ("detached garage"), almost resembling modern sheds. On occasion, a garage would be built with an apartment above it, which could be rented out. As automobiles became more popular, the idea of attaching the garage directly to the home grew into a common practice. While a person with a separate garage must walk outdoors in any type of weather, a person with an attached garage has a much shorter walk inside a building.
Garages are often where the attic entrance is located. Used also to store tools, bicycles, lawn mowers and other such items, most garages have unfinished concrete floors. Since they are heavily used for storage, and as work space for home improvement projects, garages sometimes cannot be used to protect the automobiles for which they were designed. Many two-car garages only have one usable space. Some garages contain a separate storage room to partially alleviate the problem.
