Great tips for those in need. I find a lot of garage door issues when attending inspections - some are pretty minor, others are not. I always recommend sellers have a company come in to evaluate and then repair, with a report provided.

Very interesting Lisa. We usually take our garage door for granted until it breaks.

Thank Lisa Von Domek,  I wish he was here, the sun is hitting my beam at the right angle that it does not close till the sun moves.

This is a great video.  There are so many things we can do ourselves if we just do the research.

Lisa, this is good information and have forwarded to my husband. I think our door needs oiling.

Good morning Lisa. I think you are more handy than I am. I liked this but don't mess with doors, electronics or electric.

I didn't know that garage doors needed regular maintenance. We just use them and never think about it. Now I know.
