As a trusted garage door company we ensure that your home is being serviced by professionals who have been tested and are capable of performing garage door service. There are three main types of garage door openers: chain drive, belt drive, and screw drive, made by the major brands Genie, Liftmaster, Chamberlain, Craftsman, Sears, and Marantec.
Chain drive garage door openers are the traditional method of lifting garage doors.
They are very strong, used commonly with large, heavy insulated doors, and industrial applications. The chain drive system has a number of moving parts that may need garage door service professionals to keep it working well. A licensed garage door company can help you decide if a chain system will be the best option for your home or business garage.
Many residents choose belt drive garage door openers, especially those where the garage is under a living space. The belt system is quieter than the traditional chain drive. However, the rubber belts may need more maintenance, repair, or replacement from a licensed garage door company than their chain counterparts. These first two types work basically the same way, just replacing the chains with rubber belts.
Garage door service professionals may recommend the lowest maintenance type of opener for your home: a screw drive system. With this last opener model, the lift mechanism is a threaded steel rod. There are fewer moving parts, which means less of a chance of breakage. The screw drive system is less noisy than chains and slightly louder than rubber belt drive openers.Back To Our Services
