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?
