opener

20 yrs old.. trash it.. u can use heavier springs just so long as u balance the door with no opener attached. the cables are good, if u break a spring when its closed it can be very destructive if it comes apart. screw or chain really don't matter its really the HP of the opener.. u most likely need a 1hp or larger if a double door. but the main thing is spring set-up..
