Does any one here know of a good repairman for a garage door 16x7
Mine seems to want and buckle when it is coming down.

A brand new one is out of the question right now.

Try the man on route 96 going towards Phelps Down and Out gutter person.
He did mine about 10 years ago and so far we have been lucky.
Can't remember his name but do remember the Company's name.

Kind of kitty corner from sessler's building Re Pink tractor out front

Hey Rodney,

Got a phone number on him?
I do have problems with our opener.Yes she is bitching about not being able to do it much longer,Back injury. So I got her a few sheets of paper to make it a little easier for her to reach it.

I didn't start this post but now I'm having problems with mine too. Maybe I shouldn't have busted on God about using paper so she could reach it.

I tried the number some one posted but it doesn't work can't get ahold of him on his advertised # from truck either.

Was told all I need was to put more support struts in. I installed two more than what came with it. That seemed to do the trick. Tanks to all for the help.

To the origiantor of this tread maybe this would help your problem. Also was told it was discovered when it was or the door could of been damaged beyond repairs.

You can do it by yourself. Otherwise ask the peoples living around you. I think they will tell you better then us. Searching on the internet is also a good option.
