if you can follow instructions you can put this in yourself. While I struggled with the 16 foot wide last panel, I did install it myself.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by torrmundi Good Quality, lot's of work!
The installation requires 9-10 hours per door, decent skills and a set of tools. You'll be planning, measuring & centering, metal cutting, drilling, screwing (lots) and leveling. I was able to do a 9'x7' door alone, but it's quite difficult to lift the door before getting the springs installed, since you're lifting the entire door yourself and mine weighs over 150 lbs, I would guess.
I was disappointed that the panels are not pre-drilled for the handle hardware. It takes a significant amount of time accomplish - to transfer drill points from the drawing to the door panel, then to drill the holes, install the spacers, then bolt on the handles. At one point, the instruction said to drill 1/2" holes for handle spacers, but the spacers were only about 3/8". This was the only really bad instruction I found.
The other big effort that is not handled by the kit is the support structure for the rear of the tracks. You must purchase your own angle irons and fasteners, plan a support with angle braces, cut to fit, and install on your garage roof. If the garage roof trusses are not well spaced for this, then you'll also need to purchase 2x4's to nail up to create good mounting platforms for the the support structures.

Purchased 3 doors 9x8 for new construction in a log home. Great looking doors, my builder thought they looked much more expensive. Needed good R value as garage will be heated.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Slick Nice Door. Fairly Easy to Assemble.
Bought this thinking I would help with insulating the garage a bit since it sits below two bedrooms that can get cold in the winter. Installed this myself and found the instructions fairly straightforward. Be aware that this door has a tongue and groove like attachment for each segment which may cause some clearance issues if you are attaching it to a currently installed garage door opener. I ended up having to raise mine about a half inch for the door to pass under the track bar when closing. Overall happy with the product.

Very pretty and quiet. Would recommend if you can handle dealing with the poor organization and customer service of Home Depot

Easy install if a new installation. Interesting and challenging for a retro fit but worked out well in the end.
