Does the weight of my garage door matter when shopping for openers?
Yes, it does. If you have a very light garage door that’s made of aluminum, then a 1/3 HP opener might suffice. If your door is heavier, then you should get the 1/2 or 3/4 HP opener. For very heavy large doors, like those made of wood, there are heavy duty garage door openers that are 1 or 1 1/4 HP.
