What are the pros and cons of choosing a steel garage door?
Steel is the most common type of material used among households for garage doors. This makes sense as it is sturdy, reliable, and durable. It can, however, be heavier than other options and may require more power to operate. Steel garage doors can also be prone to rust, and therefore require fairly regular maintenance.
Can we use our old tracks for our new door?
This is unlikely to work - most garage doors are designed to work with a specific track so it's best to get them together if possible.
How can I estimate the weight of the door?
If there isn't a label on the door stating its weight and you cannot find it in the manual either, use a plain scale. Put the scale at the center of the door unless one of the extension springs is damaged. In this case, put the scale closer to the damaged spring.
