The real key is ensuring that the door is properly balanced.  Disconnect the opener (if you have one) and raise the door about half way and release.  It should stay there.  If not, the door needs to be adjusted before any opener is installed.

 

A 1/2 hp is fine for 16' steel or steel insulated doors.  I might think about a 3/4 hp. for a heavy wood door.
