We have two one-piece garage doors (the old pivoting kind). The hardware (springs, hinges, etc.) is old and failing, but the doors themselves are heavy duty and do not need to be replaced.
The garage door contractors don't seem interested in replacing the hardware on the existing doors and suggest buying new, sectional doors. It appears that replacing the hardware will run about $650 per door and replacement will be $1200.
Is is truly not feasible to replace the hardware or are the contractors just eager to sell more product?
I don't know much about these, but I'm pretty good at searching the web. Try this: http://www.aaaremotes.com/hogadohaonep.html
It's definitely possible to replace the hardware. My garage doors were acting up a few months ago and I couldn't figure out the problem. I was able to get them fixed without having to replace the doors, though. I would try to find someone else who would be willing to replace just the hardware for you.
