HELP - Electric Garage Door Opener
« on: January 29, 2001, 03:32:49 PM »
My co-op is above a garage which has an electric garage door opener.  It IS VERY NOISY.  I asked the co-opmanagement company for help but I had no luck...it seems to be the norm where I live.  There are a great number of units abovegarages.  IS THERE ANYTHING I CAN DO TO REDUCE THE NOISE?  (I have wood floors with area rugs.)

this may be too basic for your situation, but i just did it to my garage door and it worked wonders...(mine is the "screw" type drive) all i did was apply a coating of grease along the length of the threaded drive and the noise level went from "screeching cat" loud to "purring kitten" soft...again, this may or may not help your situation, but it was a tremendous help in mine.
