      Yes. We have a lot of doors with old crusty stripping.

            You don't want to mess with that...it's very time consuming, tedious, and a huge pain in the butt. Hire someone to do it for you, and check for hasps that need to be replaced, doors with tension/spring issues, etc. I have my guy come out about once a month and fix every door issue I have. It will be money well spent.

              Thank you ! Perhaps I needed a little dose of empowerment... to not take on so much!

                You really do not want that job. I have to do mine and they are a royal pain. I have to prop the door. Clamp the cables to the rails. Lift the door and prop it up to take tension off the cables. Then take off the rail (Pray the ends were not crimped. Clean and lube the rails, then pull the replacement strip back through (this is the most difficult part, it has taken me over an hour to get it to feed). Then reverse the process. A large twenty wide and 15 tall door can take hours and I usually have to get the boss out of the office to help.

                    I am SO lucky that one of my tenants IS a garage door installer!

                    Win/Win!
