As one of the most important parts of your garage door system, it’s crucial to catch any problems with your opener as early as possible. It’s a complicated piece of machinery that’s connected to a number of mechanical and electrical parts. Issues with this unit can cause knock-on damage to other components if not dealt with. Luckily, our technicians will know how to track down and fix the problem, whether it’s some faulty wiring or a damaged chain drive. You can trust our team to get the problem solved quickly, every time.
Installing New Opener Units
Our team has worked with every make and model of unit there is – if you're in need of a new opener, we provide a full range of professional installation services. If you’re looking to replace your existing unit, or wish to invest in a smart new upgrade, our technicians are on hand to help. During the installation process, we'll ensure your new opener is secured to the strong overhead blocking before attaching the rail and trolley and balancing the door. We’ll also program the remote control system so you can easily enter and exit your home, and adjust the safety sensors to the correct positions.
Which Drive Type Should You Choose?
The first decision to make when choosing a new opener is the type of drive you’ll need. There are plenty of options available, but they mostly boil down to three main categories. Firstly, chain drives are affordable and durable, and use a metal chain to move the door. They’re noisy, though, and many owners prefer to avoid them if they have bedrooms near the garage. Next are belt drives; as the name implies, these replace the metal chain with a soft rubber or fiberglass belt. This setup helps to eliminate noise, but can result in a higher cost. Finally, screw drives use a long threaded rod to move the door - they are quieter than chain drives, but what makes them really attractive is their low maintenance requirements.
Picking Out Smart Features
Most manufacturers provide smart new technology as additions to their openers. These add-ons range from remote control apps like Chamberlain’s “MyQ”, to rolling remote codes that help prevent thieves from accessing your home. Our technicians are always happy to provide advice on these systems and more.
