Last year I built a "kit" pole barn garage.
I had to put in a gravel floor, not cement.
I have had several problems with the garage door not operating properly. In fact, the door buckled when opening it on it's 3rd day! Boo hoo. Now the cable broke on it. Just before something happens, I can tell when I am opening and closing it that it's not operating right - it makes wierd noises.
Does the fact that it is coming down on a gravel base vs cement have anything do to with this? What should the base of the door be? Someone suggested filling that portion with cement or wood so that it has something to hit on when it closes.
I NEED HELP! Winter is just around the corner and I need my garage door to open and close by remote.
Thank you for any advice or suggestions.
