Properly maintaining your opener will help to keep it functional and should the need arise, our repair and replacement services are on hand to address any malfunctions. There are a number of makes and models when it comes to these systems but all of them fall under three broad mechanical categories. Read on to learn more.
Choosing The Right Opener
When choosing a garage door opener, you can select from three types: the chain, belt, or screw drive. The chain drive uses a chain to lift the door. It is a more affordable option but a little noisy, and is therefore recommended for detached garages. The belt drive uses a belt in place of the chain, resulting in a quieter operation. Models of this type are sometimes more expensive but better suited for attached garages where noise is likely to be an issue. The screw drive system uses a threaded rod and a trolley to move the door. Although these systems can be noisy too, units of this type need very little in the way of maintenance because they only consist of a few parts. This type is recommended for those who do not mind the noise and who do not want to be bothered by regular maintenance.
