Change double garage doors to single

Son and I will alter double garage doors to new, wider 18' single door. This requires removal of a center "post". Local builder says this post is non-supporting so no problem.

I say lintel needs to be reinforced with additional beam and/or lamibeam of some sort bolted to original to prevent sagging.

How do we determine what is needed?

if the builder came to your house and inspected the opening, id say youre ok. we always run 3/4 ply-wood across the header for added support.
