Different Kinds of Garage Door Openers Available for our Lakeview Clients

Oftentimes a garage door opener can be repaired without replacing it – but for a situation where replacement is required or most cost-effective, it’s good to know your options! Following is a primer on those options – get in touch with us to find out what all the current options are.

  • Chain Drive
    This is the most common type of garage door opener due to the low price. A chain is used to deliver power from the motor to the torsion bar, moving the door up or down on the way. The downside with this method is that it is often louder than most other systems and may require maintenance if the chain breaks or comes off.
  • Belt Drive
    This operates in the same way as the chain drive system, except a rubber belt is used in place of a chain. This results in a smoother, quieter motion. However, belts don’t last as long as chains.
  • Screw Drive
    As the name says, this mechanism uses a threaded shaft (like a screw) to raise and lower the garage door. This is a sturdy mechanism, but is it the loudest of all the garage door opener options.
  • Jackshaft
    Rather than being mounted on the ceiling and taking potential storage space, this method for lifting a garage door is side mounted. It is more expensive than the more conventional arrangement, but may be desirable or necessary in certain situations.
  • Direct Drive
    This is the quietest method of opening a garage door by motor. In this setup, the drive motor moves along a fixed track along with the door. This strategy involves the least number of moving parts, which is a plus when it comes to maintenance.

Lakeview Garage Door Opener Repair FAQ

How much does it cost to repair a garage door opener?

Costs will vary depending on the type of garage door, costs for parts, and the difficulty of the repair. Many residential garage door opener repairs will run $100-$300, with commercial repairs running higher.

How long do garage door openers last?

10 to 15 years is a good bet, or about the lifespan of two sets of coils. But this depends on the system you invest in to begin with, and the level of maintenance you provide to the system. The fewer moving parts you have, the better.

How do you know when your garage door opener is going bad?

Two major signs are noise and movement. Increased or changed noise is an indication that something is coming loose that probably shouldn’t. Of course your garage door should move, but the movement should be smooth (not jumpy). Your door should also go all the way up and make a tight seal with the floor when closed.

Do you need a special light bulb for your garage door opener?

Replacing a light bulb in your garage door opener is something any homeowner who’s ok with heights can do. Check online for the bulb type you need to order, and if you need help, give us a call.

How long does it take to replace a garage door opener?

An experienced professional will likely be able to finish the job in 1-3 hours. Look to spend double that amount of time if you’re doing it yourself, especially if it’s your first time. Labor rates for garage door maintenance are very reasonable – consider getting a quote before striking out on your own.
