But if you install the wrong opener, you’ll end up with a noisy, burned-out mess on the ceiling of your garage. Here are the four most popular types of garage door openers, and the benefits of each.
TYPE OF GARAGE DOOR OPENERS:
Once you have decided on the right garage door, we can install it for you. We can also offer different types of motorized devices that are available for your door. To make it easier, we have put together an information package that explains the different garage doors offered.
Belt Drive Garage Door Opener
The belt drive opener uses a Kevlar polymer belt to move your garage door, instead of a chain. As a result, it is much quieter. The belt has nubby teeth on one side, which twist through a gear to pull the trolley.
A well-maintained belt drive opener will raise and lower your garage door without a peep, but they are more expensive than chain drives.
Screw Drive Garage Door Opener
This type of garage door opener uses a rotating, threaded steel rod to move your door. With fewer moving parts, a screw drive garage door opener will require very little maintenance over its lifetime.
The screw drive is also more powerful than other types of openers, so it’s an excellent choice if you have a heavy wooden garage door.
Jackshaft Garage Door Opener
While most garage door openers are installed on the garage ceiling over the garage door, a Jackshaft opener is mounted on the wall next to the door.
It is used in many special applications, most commonly where the garage ceiling is not high enough to accommodate a traditional opener and the raised garage door.
If you have less than 48 inches of clearance above your garage door, a Jackshaft garage door opener is right for you.

Lawrence took my call right away. He came out first thing the next morning. And when we had to re-schedule, he came back the same day after he was finished with all his other appointments. He not only replaced the springs on the door that needed fixing, he oiled and inspected the other door, too. He was nice, friendly, competent, and quick! Oh, and his prices were great! He gave me a discount for no reason, too. 🙂
