Quickly Learn Which Garage Door Opener Is
Best For You...
There are 3 Main Types of Openers:
Driven Openers- Chain drives are typically the most commonly used and most reliable
type of opener. This drive runs the garage door on its track by using a metal
chain. Chain drives are typically the least expensive type of opener. They also
tend to be the noisiest type of opener, so if your garage is located below or
adjacent to the main rooms in your home, you might not want this opener. However,
if your garage is detached or the noise does not bother you, this is the best
choice for you and your family.
Belt Driven Openers- Belt drives
are regarded in the garage door industry as the best type of opener. Not only
are belt drives as reliable as chain drives, but they are also virtually silent.
This drive runs on a rubber belt and is typically 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.
