Garage Door Opener

3 main types of garage door openers in the industry

Chain Driven Openers

Chain drives are probably the most durable type of garage door openers which is the reason why they are commonly used in the industry. The drive runs the garage door in its track by using a metal chain. Besides being very reliable chain driven openers also available for very affordable prices. The biggest disadvantage is they can be quite noisy so if your garage is located in the close proximity to your bedroom you might want to consider installing a belt driven garage opener. Otherwise, if the noise is not the problem, chain driven opener is the best solution for you.

Belt Driven Openers

Belt drives are considered the best type of garage door openers in the industry. Rubber belt driven openers besides being as reliable as chain drives, they are also virtually silent, which makes them more expensive than chain drive openers. If your garage is attached to your home and has surrounding bedrooms, you'll never be bothered by the noise of your garage door. Alvin Garage Door Service® highly recommend belt driven garage door openers to the majority of our residential clients from Buffalo Grove, IL.

Screw Driven Openers

Screw drive openers use a lifting device that runs on a threaded steel rod instead of a chain or a rubber belt. These openers work best and are recommended in locations where the weather and temperature stay constant throughout the year. In areas with a wide range of temperatures, a screw drive opener is not recommended. The biggest con of this type of opener is they are the slowest moving and probably noisiest of all three openers.

Garage Door Remote and Keypad Programming

Garage door keypad panels and remotes add and an extra layer of convenience. They offer a safe way to ensure the contents of your garage are safe while you are away. However, they can become a problem if loose remote or forget the password and can't get your garage door to open.
