Opener for old wood garage door

Posted by ks99 (My Page) on

Hello Everyone,

I currently have a question regarding my old, non-sectional torsion spring (both springs are on the side of the door) garage door with no track. I have looked into buying a nice new garage door with opener setup, however I am wondering is there a garage door opener out there that will just lift up the door instead of me having to lift it up my self? It seems like there should be an opener out there but I just cant seem to find one. There is no need to pull the weight of the door as the torsion spring already holds that.

Any ideas?

The screw type door opener was originally designed for your type door and that is what is still recommended. If it were me I would eliminate that door today. It is the most dangerous door ever made.
