    I am starting a garage door business for myself and my son, I have been an automotive shop owner for 25 yrs. I sold it and want to be self-employed again. I do have some experience repairing garage doors particularly 12ft x 12ft and have replaced a few springs and cables on smaller doors and installed a few openers. For me, with my background, it seems to fit.
