I am going to be remodeling my personal garage soon, and have a ? I have access to a new insulated metal garage door, FREE, But without any of the track or hardware. Is it worth it, to get, then buy the track and springs etc. Or just get everything at one time? I have no answer why the door is there without the hardware. And what might the hardware cost? Any BALL-PARK price will help out for the hardware! thanks, dave

There is a guy on ebay with a store that sells garage door track kits.New unopened for I think around $35.I only know this because I was just there getting some parts for a new in box opener a guy gave me that was missing some parts.Don't know about shipping.The box would not be to heavy but long.

Yeah.. talk to an installer, a lot of times on the replacements, they re-use the tracks..

They should have a pile of them somewhere:rolleyes:

I thought about that route as well! I think but not sure the reason this door is in our warehouse at work is similar! The track was damaged, not the door, and they replaced the track/hardware! Now I am on a mission!! LOL

Heck if the old tracks are in good shape I would just reuse them. I would probly reuse the hinges and springs too if they were in good shape. Being it would be for my own place, I figure I could replace any of the parts as they wear out.

Plus I would rather spend the money on tools than upgrading my house:laughing:

I would not use your old springs, weight the new panels, then get new springs, cables, and pulleys based on the weight of the new door.
