Garage door openers safely operate your garage door
, completing the level of convenience and security added to your home. Our assortment of garage door openers includes many options and features available to keep your garage door quiet and smart.
Choose the Right Garage Door Opener
There are four types of garage door openers to choose from:
• Chain-drive garage door openers
are durable and have extra strength for standard aluminum doors that require periodic maintenance.
• Screw-drive garage door openers
are low-maintenance units best for heavy, wide garage doors.
• Belt-drive garage door openers
are ideal if you have an intimate space, like a bedroom or living area, adjacent to your garage. They deliver a smooth, quiet operation with fewer parts, which means less upkeep.
• Direct-drive garage door openers
are similar to belt-drive models because they generate little noise or vibration and have minimal upkeep. These units can also be mounted on a wall in your garage.
Horsepower is another key factor when it comes to garage door openers. Look into ½ horsepower garage openers if you have standard aluminum doors. Oversized doors and one-piece doors may require 3/4, 1 or 1¼ horsepower garage door openers.
Garage openers with higher horsepower use less effort to operate and minimize wear and tear on the motor. Keep this in mind if your custom garage door
acts as the main entrance to your home.
