Garage doors (not their mechanical components) often last for 30 years or more, depending on the door manufacturer, the material of the door, and the weather conditions to which the door is exposed throughout its lifetime. That said, garage door components can wear out far faster, including the springs, motor, track, and other components. Oftentimes, these components can wear out within 10 years of their initial installation — and weathering tends to go hand in hand with the amount of use (for example, a garage door motor may wear out twice as fast if you open the garage four times per day versus two times per day).
