If you are considering replacing your garage door opener, we offer several models from chain to belt drive systems. Most garage door openers are now compatible with your smartphone and other devices which is a great way to monitor the activity of your garage door in real time.
CHAIN DRIVE OPENERS
This is a great option if you are on a limited budget, own a rental property or have a detached garage. One of the downsides of a chain drive garage door opener is that it’s noisier than its belt drive counterpart. However, it remains to be one of the most common types of openers today. It is recommended that you keep the chain clean and lubricate it periodically for optimum performance.
BELT DRIVE OPENERS
This type of system is sometimes referred to as a direct drive, as it has a stationary chain that operates inside a steel rail to open the door. It offers fewer moving parts and is the quietest model available. The steel rail also protects the opening mechanism, thus making it less likely to break or require maintenance.
