Choose the Best Type of Garage Door Opener for Your Needs
Three types of garage door openers are available on the market, but not all are recommended for the Michigan weather variations. There are screw driven openers, chain driven openers, and belt driven openers.
Screw driven garage door openers – are usually used in locations without a big variation in weather temperatures. While these are the least expensive opener, they are also the slowest moving and often the noisiest type of opener.
Chain driven garage door openers – are an economically priced opener, and are often recommended for detached garages, because you don’t hear the opener noise from inside the home.
Belt driven garage door openers – are considered the best type of opener for reliability as well as for noise reduction. Homes with attached garages often have belt driven openers, which operate quietly enough that you can’t hear the opener from inside the home. For this reason, many homeowners prefer belt driven openers, even though they cost a little more than the other types.
When your garage door is stuck, or the garage door opener needs attention, rely on the knowledge of Adrian Overhead Doors to get it working again.
