He came over last nite and did a great job! Cost is still $80 and my boyfriend and I are very pleased with the work they did!
I would recommend 100%. Found his name/number on this site so thanks everyone else who recommended him.

I need some suggestions. We have a 16x7 double garage door. The house is a new build, so it is just a basic door (metal/aluminum?) with no insulation. We are looking at a belt drive because there is a living room above the garage. Would you recommend a 3/4 or a 1/2hp motor?

1/2 hp is plenty. sears has some good sales on garage door openers and sometimes they include the wireless keypad as well. we bought a chain driven one for just under $200 which came with 2 openers & keypad and another device that you attach on your garage and keep the sensor inside your house. if you accidently leave the garage door openn the sensor inside will beep. atleast that how its supposed to work but i never bothered to attach it :(

Guys, if our current GDO is chain operated, does it mean I have to buy a chain operated GDO?

Remove the old opener. Put in a new opener. Your choice as to what that is.

hey buildinghomes,

you posted earlier in the thread that sears will come out and fix a craftsman...does the craftsman have a longer warranty period than others? How does sears handle a situation where the garage door opener was purchased by the previous owner, does any warranty transfer over as i don't have any bill of sale from the previous owner(s).

The chain or belt is included when you buy an opener, so the choice is yours.

These are questions you will have to ask Sears to get answered.

Ron and Wife came in 2 weekends ago and did the job. Took them about 2.5 hrs on a single door. $80. Highly recommended.

Ron and his wife came and installed my new Chamberlain and the whole experience was what you all said .... Great.

These two operate with complete professionalism and apparently they have their own detailing business. Based on the whole experience with them, I will try their detailing out in Ajax when i get a chance.

Cheers.
