Question Garage door repair question

My garage door is 8'x19', sectional rollup. It is ~25 years old and is not closing anymore. The problem is the door doesn't have support beams running horizontaly along each section. When the door is opened and closed the middle part of it sags down. The door opens but won't close anymore without user intervention pushing up on the drooping part as it's closing.

I figure I could buy some sort of aluminum "T" beams and install them on the sections as they should be.

What do you think?

You might try that. The problem is your door with age has sprung.
If it does not work, you can still put the struts on your new door.
Door are not expensive. Unfortunetly they are not made to last forever. You have gotten your money worth from your door. Good Luck
