It's a new garage. No opener installed yet. I want make sure the doors are installed properly first. The doors operate smoothly. Can be lifted with little force. Will stay where ever is, except the last 2-3in on the track. After the door is fully opened, it will reverse for 2-3 in. Then back and forth several times. I tried to open the door very slowly. When the bottow of the door is just about to turn, I can feel there is a force dragging the door forward. If I loose, the door will start back and forth in that small range. Is this a problem that I should call the service? Is it ok to install opener under this condition?
Thanks in advance

Sounds like you are ready to go. I do not see any problem from your letter. Just normal door stuff. Garage doors will always rub. Just the nature of the beast. Good Luck
