Chain Drive Garage Door Opener

Chain Drive Garage Door Opener
This is the classic garage door opener and the most common with a chain that moves a trolley to raise and lower your door. Chain drive openers have been around since the automatic garage door opener was invented in 1926; they are dependable, long-lasting and inexpensive. The only downside to a chain drive opener is the vibration and noise. If your garage is located underneath, or adjacent to a bedroom in your home, a chain drive opener is not the best choice. As with all openers, you’ll need a professional garage door opener technician to figure out how much horsepower is needed lift your particular door.


Belt Drive Garage Door Opener

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

Screw Drive Garage Door RepairThis 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

Jackshaft Garage Door RepairWhile 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.

Great service!

5 5 1
I had an issue with the garage door while I was out of town. My wife called me that the garage door fell off its track. When I got home the garage was a complete mess, the springs snapped the cables came lose and 2 of the rollers came off. I called Local and they had one of their experienced technicians out within 2 hours, the service call was only 20 as with other companies they were charging me 65. Well long story short my garage door was fixed they were very professional. I had no issues with them, and I am extremely grateful!
