Safety with 1950s solid 3/4 ply garage single doors & new openers
Have you had safety and success with 1950s solid 3/4 ply garage single doors & new openers? I have had openers on lighter 68's wooden panel doors w/o any problem since mid 80s. A friend wants to add an opener but I remember too much weight w/o seeing and raising the door. I doubt it has any counter balance springs. My suggestion has been to add a newer panel or metal door to the old hardware to be safe. The newer metal doors that I have noticed and work with were just Ã¢ÂÂSkinÃ¢ÂÂ vs any quality.
Thanks in advance for any info. loger
