  1. My garage door has been having problems opening. It makes sense that it might be a problem with the opener! Maybe I should try getting a new one to see if that makes it any better.

  2. My sister just moved into a new home the other day. She is worried about the garage door and thinks that they might need to look for a repair service. It might help her to know that she should look for a contractor that is safe.
