2 Steps To Picking The Right Garage Door Opener

Precision Garage Door Opener
  1. Choose The Right Opener For Your Needs
  2. Choose The Right Company To Install it

Believe it or not, buying a new garage door opener can be a stressless experience. You just need to understand the differences between the 3 types of available openers and see what a professional installation looks like. If you spend a couple of minutes with this page we promise you'll feel a lot more confident when purchasing your opener, in less than 10 minutes ...

Let's begin by learning the 3 types of available garage door openers:

Belt Drive
Belt drive garage door openers are the quietest on the market, and the belts are typically warrantied for life so dependability is not a problem. Warranties may depend on the manufacturer, but we'll let you know prior to the installation. Because they are dependable and so quiet, belt drives are considered to be the "top of the line" garage door openers. The only down side is price; belt drives are a little more expensive than other types of openers.
Chain Drive
Chain drive garage door openers are the stalwart of the industry. They are ultra reliable and less expensive than the belt drive which makes them a popular choice. Chain drive openers can be a good choice to save a little money when your garage is not attached to your home.
Screw Drive
Screw drive garage door openers use a lifting mechanism that moves along a threaded steel rod. They are powerful units and because they have few moving parts, require little maintenance. While the performance of these machines has been improved in recent years, typically the older units are not as quiet as the belt drive units and can be affected by cold weather climates.
Direct Drive Opener (Jackshaft)

Jackshaft Garage Door Opener This specially designed garage door opener is mounted to the wall beside the garage door. It frees up ceiling space that can now be used for maximum storage and provides a perfect solution for low and cathedral ceilings. This is a DC motor that is extremely quiet.

Pictured right, you can see how this new opener differs from a traditional garage door opener in where the opener is mounted. It is adjacent to the door on the front wall rather than hung down from the middle of the garage's ceiling.
