Our bedroom has a door-another entrance to the apartment. We don't used said door but it leads into the staircase and we hear people going in and out at both fairly late and fairly early times. More importantly, the dog hears them too. I'd like to soundproof the door with materials that can be fairly easily removed when we move out (renters), and that are not that ugly either. [more inside]

My garage door opener has been acting funny, but it's very intermittent, which of course drives me nuts. Every once in a while, about 1-2 seconds after the garage door closes, it'll open back up. Sometimes, if I just close it again, it'll stay closed. But lately, it'll take 5-6 tries until it'll stay shut. The garage door opener is a Genie Pro Stealth, and I've already tried adjusting the limiters and such on the opener, and it actually worked perfectly for about 6-7 months, but lately it started acting up again. I tried adjusting the limiters again, and of course it worked for 2 days, then started reversing again. Does anybody have any idea what might be causing this and how I can fix it?
