How flimsy is 25 gauge steel sectional garage door?


I am getting quotes for 25 vs 24 gauge steel sectional doors, single metal layer, non-insulated.

Just wondering how flimsy that's gonna be for 25 gauge under normal daily use.

Anyone have experience with such a budget door?

are there horizontal metal frames supporting the door, or does it rely on the sheet metal itself for support?

Someone's going to have to add 1-1/4 angle to the top of the door where the opener attaches.

yeah I know how thin 24 and 25g are.

I just wanted some real world input. They both are not child-proof, I'd assume?

one stray basketball, and both would be dented?
