    Garage Door Openers or Not?

    So I think I want garage door openers. I really don't think I NEED them but think I would like to have them. We have no problems opening the doors by hand now. I have never had a garage and was not planning to use it for the car but as time passes I find my self using it when I can. 3 Liftmasters belt drive installed for under $1,300.00. Is it worth the investment? Again I have never had a garage not to mention a door opener. I would install a key pad on the out side. I do know locking the doors with keys is a PITA and more times (most of the time) than not I don't. Comments!

    I vote YES! And do them yourself for about $600. I keep a remote on my gator, tractor and motorcycle, it is very nice to be able to open/close them without getting off.

    I keep my truck inside and wouldnt be without an opener. I wouldnt put a opener on a door thats seldom used. I have Craftsman openers, they are 15+ years old and have worked great.

    All three doors are used a lot just not so much for vehicles. I try to keep the center bay clear and use it on occasion for a vehicle. Tractor is in the right side, Garden tractor, Toro Z-Master, Gator and other stuff in the left bay. I do not see ever having more than one bay open for vehicles. What is driving all this is the doors are always locked whenever the door is down. Would be nice to be able to close the doors from the house also. I have never had to deal with thieves in our area but as in other areas, it is becoming more prevalent.

    I agree with Kennyd do them yourself and save a big amount.. Don't know about the others I have Craftsman , 2 of them are over 20 yrs old , the third one is at least 10 yrs old. Its nice to pull up with the tractor and be able to back in garage without getting off the tractor.

    Absolutely install them. If you can do it yourself great and save some money. If you want to have someone else install them, then do so, you won't regret the investment.

    Absolutely put garage door openers on and do it yourself to save money. My Craftsman door openers were made by Liftmaster. I have no idea who makes them for Sears now.
    I have more ideas than ambition.

    I vote yes on the garage door openers. I have two Craftsman that are almost 18 years old and would replace them in a heartbeat should the need arise. You won't regret it.

    Gizmo:

    I agree on having openers. You could install them yourself and connect an interlock that would only allow the door to open if the Roll-Gard was folded.
