Is reinforcement needed prior to installing a garage door opener?
I am installing a new garage door opener on my garage door. The garage door was installed last year and is less than a year old. Unfortunately, when we purchased the house, the previous owners did not give us any documentation on the door, so we are unable to tell if the door is pre-reinforced for a garage door opener or not.
From looking at the door, it seems like it was manufactured with vertical supports on all the panels, and there is also a horizontal bar going all the way across the top. From the pictures I am attaching, can anybody tell if the door requires reinforcing before I attach the opener?
