I'm going to replace my 16 X 7' garage door. I've looked at several at the
big box stores but haven't bought yet. I intend to do it myself. Any
suggestions, advice, caveats and recommendations will be appreciated.
I'd check to see if there is a Wayne Dalton store near you. Installed they
are often a lot cheaper than the big box stores and they definitely make
some of the best doors around.
Lowes or HD used to carry them but marked them up dramaticallly and charged
extra for installing. Note the enclosed torsion spring.
For safety sake, find a garage door mechanic. I have a friend that
attempted to replace the garage door springs and the spring twisted
part of his thumb off. I can replace or hang a regular door which is
no big deal, but a full-size garage door is well-beyond most DIY
