How wide a door for a walk out basement.


Looking at the Big Box web sites 36" seems to be the largest exterior door commonly available. Would there be any advantage to a wider door?

Thanks,
Jimmie

I took out a 36" door and put in a six foot slider with a 3 foot fixed panel on each side, but the house overlooks a lake.
What are you going to use the door for and do you want the light/view or just access?

The wider the better in a basement or garage. 4' is ideal. You may get some BIG TOOLS for Xmas and need to get them in and out.
