How much use does your garage door get? In San Diego we use our garage door more commonly than our front door. That being said, the wear and tear on the parts for the mechanics of the garage door opener are going to suffer. Patriot Garage Doors only installs quality parts that are brand new. We do this because we give a LIFETIME WARRANTY on all parts with same day service. Patriot Garage Doors is also a licensed contractor. A lot of our competitors are not licensed, use recycled parts, and don't offer a lifetime warranty.
A 2 car garage (16'x7') weighs approximately 350lbs and a garage door opener can only guide 5 lbs. Torsion springs lift the door and the motor just guides the garage door. Torsion springs have recently been taken off of the market to the general public. They can't be bought at Lowe's, Home Depot or any type of hardware store. OSHA did this to ensure the safety of home owners to only allow certified technicians to install torsion springs due to the risk involved during installation.
