Are all garage door openers basically the same?

When you need to purchase a garage door opener, it can be hard to figure out which kind is right for your specific garage door. Perhaps you’re replacing your garage door and opener at the same time, or maybe your opener neared the end of its service life before the door did, so you’re just replacing the opener. Whatever the case may be, you need expert guidance to pick the right garage door opener for your door.

4 garage door opener styles

Many people think that all garage door openers are basically the same, but they’re not. There are 4 different garage door opener styles (direct drive, screw, belt, and chain). Plus you’ll also need to figure out how much power your garage door opener needs to power open and close your door effectively, day-in and day-out. If you have a smaller, one-car garage door, you can get away with having less horsepower in your garage door motor, but if your garage door is larger, you need to be sure to get an opener that can handle the extra power requirements.

Safety is #1

The various safety protocols of garage door openers should also be taken into consideration when choosing a garage door opener. This is a device that you’ll be using every day for many years to come, so taking some extra time to think through the various options is a very wise decision.

Don’t go it alone

Thankfully, you don’t have to make these decisions on your own.
