They sell insulation kits at the local big box hardware store and I cringe every time I see them. The box weighs about 15 pounds, which doesn't sound like a lot. It is definitely enough to un-balance a garage door. The springs are calibrated for the weight of the door, and adding weight makes the door "heavy" for the springs. This means that if you pull an operator disconnect handle when the door is in the open position, the door is likely to descend much more quickly than you anticipate. People have been hurt when a garage door came down on them and the momentum knocked them over. Only add weight if the door springs can be re-torqued or replaced with springs of the proper pull.
The low rating on the CS is due to the fact that inwas out of town and my wife called because the garage door wouldn't open. We had repairs to the only other exit, and the CS said because it could be opened manually, it was no emergency. She was stuck in the house for over Sixteen hours. No emergency crew came out. Steve, a tech who came out the first time, fixed the door. It is not his fault CS took their sweet time to help a 45 year customer. I commend Steve. I do NOT have anything good to say about CS.

When I called to schedule the repair service, I was transferrd 5 times and spoke with 6 service reps. Each rep was very confused by my request to get my garage door repaired. One rep actually told me that Sears doesn't repair garage doors. I had to tell her that Sears installed the door. When I finally found a rep who could schedule my service, it took one week for the appointment.
In most Rite-Hite dock levelers, a ring rolls in the curve of a lip keeper as someone walks across the deck of the dock leveler. This allows the lip assist bar attached to the ring to push the lip up. Over time, the bar connecting the ring and the lip assist bar wears out, and the ring is unable to stay on the track of the lip keeper.This indirectly prevents the lip from raising when someone pulls the pull chain. This tutorial demonstrates how to properly replace a worn lip assist bar in a Rite-Hite dock leveler.
With garage door installation costs, these numbers also include the actual purchase of the new door and other hardware, including the tracks, adhesives, connectors and fasteners.
