Needing a garage door remote's
 
Can someone school me on how to go about getting a garage door remote for our garage doors ?? This may sound like a dumb question but can you buy universal remote's that can be coded like a television remote control's ??

yes.

OR... get the model and serial number off the opener
and contact the local retailers or distributor for that brand

We have a 2 car garage. 1 is a Chamberlain and 1 is a Lift-a-dor. I am going to assume the Lift-a-dor is a garbage manufacturer. Just looks cheap.

You can order online through amazon.com for your particular brand, or check http://www.garagedooropeners.com/

The FCC manages, for better or worse, and I don't care if you are big government or no government, a communications spectrum that looks like this. For your concern about a universal garage door opener replacement, I would definitely print this out and ask a guy at Home Depot in an orange apron which universal remote you should buy.

If they come in colors? I would pick purple.
