What’s wrong with my garage door opener?

After leaving the house, I noticed the garage door did not close. I tried several times, but the door only moved slightly but would not close. I had to go into the garage and release the door opener and then lock the door. Do I need a new opener?

Seeking advice about tempered windows

I am putting in a new custom shower with frameless tempered glass doors. From the shower door to the window is less than 60 inches on the other side of the toilet. Do you know if the window has to be tempered?
