That is an advanced and advancing case of dry rot. All �rots� white, brown,... (dry rot collectively) are caused by fungus, and have a symbiotic relationship with bacteria (good for farming and recycling the natures waste, but bad for controlled environments like homes) . Naturally occurring bacteria in the air and water convert and live off cellulose (wood fiber) and produce food for the fungus. Wait till warmer weather. The solution requires exploratory surgery. My guess is some of the sub flooring and framing may be affected since the wall's bottom plate is. In the mean time learn about the various types rots and how to combat them (deny food source, moisture, etc. from above and below). A don't forget to look at the overall picture (roof gutters, caps above windows & doors, loose or un-caulked siding windows, doors, or trim; grading the soil away from the house, whet spots, splash blocks at downspouts). This list (make your own) goes on.... Make a year round battle plan that you can live with. Do nothing and your house is food (just like a dead tree in the forest). There are many �treatment� products for building materials and the soil that can help, but you must widen your scope first.
As JB said, Overhead is one of the largest in both residential and commercial. I'm sure it was done correctly, but you can always call the company and ask. I've seen even 16 x 14 sandwich style doors (heavy!) with only one support.

Thanks, Dean I have a couple of questions for you: Was the braces in place lagged to wood, or welded in place? Second, are you using a chain hoist to operate the door? When it comes to the security of the door, one slide lock should be enough, but you might want to place al long shoulder bolt and nut through the lock when the door is not in use. If someone wants to get in, it doesnt take much to slide something through the side of the door and pop that slide lock so the door is unlocked. If you have something through there it will ensure that this wont happen. The reason I asked about the hoist, is for the fact that if you have a hoist on the door as well you can use a chain keeper to hold the chain in place, and then you have the added security of the chain for the hoist as well as the slide lock. If the chain is held in the keeper the door wont be able to be forced open. CHEERS
