The fact of the matter is that the h/t of the web is only relevant because web stiffeners were not installed. The question of who is *responsible* (not liable) is a question for lawyers to debate. The question of who is liable is for a court to determine --- unless a person agrees to accept "liability," no one is liable for anything until determined by a court of law. The engineering "fact" [opinion] as you described it, is that the garage door header, without stiffeners, is inadequate. With properly engineered web stiffeners, the header *could* be adequate. What has to be determined is who is responsible for specifying the header without stiffeners. A. Roger Turk, P.E.(Structural) Tucson, Arizona I have an extreme dislike for the misuse of the words "liable" and "liability" and not enough use of the words, "responsible" and "responsibility."
