Costco, Home Depot and Lowes has sectional garage door kits for the DIYers.
The spring counter balance system is different than the ones the contactors
install for safety reasons. So how good is the spring system provided for
the DIYers? Has anyone installed one of those units and like to comment on
the installation process and long term use?
Same springs. The DIY system just adds a mechanical, drill operated, cable
tensioner. Instead of having the door propped open and springs tensioned as
in the old days, now door is closed and springs installed than tension
applied with a drill.
