Most automatic garage doors are built to last quite a long time, up to 20 to 30 years. However, it is the parts and the components of the doors that wear out and can give you lots of problems if they are not maintained.
All automatic garage doors are powered by an electric motor that sits attached to the ceiling of the garage, attached with a movable lever to power the door. There is a very powerful spring that is situated at the rear of the garage along the ceiling. It helps to take the load off of the motor by contracting and expanding as the door goes up and down.
The door itself is made up of four or five sections so it can bend to the back as it rises and folds back along the garage ceiling. These sections are held together by hinges that are fasted to the door by bolts.
The motor can simply wear out, and in that case will need to be replaced. The spring can wear down, and even break, and it will take a professional who really knows what he is doing to replace it, due to the danger of the high tension on the spring.
The bolts on the hinges of the door keep coming loose, and will have to be periodically kept tight, or the door can skew in its travels on the rails, and jump the track, causing lots of damage.
