Mechanical and photocell are 2 mechanisms which need to be evaluated. To test the mechanical feature, insert a chunk of wood or brick. The door should reverse back when it touches the object. To test the photocell feature, push the close button and pass your leg from under the door. The door should reverse back. If it doesn't, it is time to buy a new garage door.
There are numerous pros and cons of different garage door materials on the market today. If you are installing a new garage door, you may be swayed by any of these advantages/disadvantages, but you may also want to use the same or similar material to that used on other parts of your garage and house.
To keep the period home's historical appearance intact, architectural salvage doors should, whenever possible, be used throughout the home. Interior designs in these type of dwellings necessitate the use of antique wood doors that fit into the design aesthetic. Bedroom and bathroom doors, closet doors, some of which might be pocket doors depending on the home style, pantry doors, as well as back doors and garage doors all should be salvage doors in keeping with the design style of the vintage home.
And yet, the style of door that you choose can make a subtle, definitive difference throughout your home. I know that part of the reason that I'm drawn to old Victorian homes and triple-deckers is their beautiful hardwood doors in so many different styles. Most of today's new construction features bland, hollow-core interior doors with plain brass knobs - no character at all.
