opener-repair-2Your garage door opener is a critical component in the operation of your garage door. With a variety of drive sizes and motor options, not to mention the access controls, it can be difficult to know which garage door opener is going to work best for your home or business. That’s where we can help with years of experience and an expert knowledge of openers.

Drive Types

There are three drive types for garage doors: belt, chain, and screw. Each of these has it’s own pros and cons. Belt drives are generally quieter, but not as powerful. Chain drives are louder, but not very fast, and screw drives deliver the most speed and power, but are louder to operate. The size and type of garage door is a big factor in the garage door opener selection you can make. Location in your home is a factor too. If your garage has a room above it, a quieter garage door opener is more desirable.

opener-repairAccess Considerations

Most garage door openers can do similar things with remote controls, wall switches, and access keypads. It is important to consider your access needs with selecting an opener. If you need to allow kids, maintenance people, housekeepers, or guests in, it can change the way your access controls are configured. The last thing you want to do is install a nice, new opener and find out it will not work with your access needs.

Parts and Repairs

A final consideration for your garage door opener is the ability to get parts and have it serviced later. Some openers make it almost impossible to get parts or find a technician when something does break. That is never the case with Overhead Door Company. We service everything we sell and have our own manufacturing line for all of our parts. Let us setup your garage with a opener that fits your needs today and in the future as well.
