All About Garage Door Openers

garage door openers

Many people think that the remote control to the garage door is the opener, but the two are separate, though they function together. The remote communicates with the opener by sending signals telling it to open or close. Our expert team at Habpro Garage Doors will help you select a garage door opener that works best for the weight and size of your garage doors. There are five types of garage door openers to consider for their capability, durability, and price.

Jackshaft Opener

When space or ceiling clearance is limited, a jackshaft garage door opener is ideal. It mounts to the wall instead of overhead and uses cables to operate the door. Jackshaft openers are known for being ultra-quiet.

Chain Driven

Chains and pulleys operate the up and down motion on the garage doors. Chain driven openers are reliable and affordable, but are very noisy.

Belt Driven

The most popular option in the marketplace, belt driven openers utilize a flexible, heavyweight rubber belt and pulley mechanics to raise and lower the door. This model is chosen for its quiet operation and is a great choice for garages that are adjacent to living spaces.

Screw Driven

A steel drive screw activates the motor and pulls it along the track. Because of its noisy function, sensitivity to temperature swings, and cheaper parts, screw driven openers are less popular.

Direct Driven

As the name implies, the motor itself drives the trolley without relying on a belt, chain, or screw. With only one moving part, direct driven openers are lower maintenance and very quiet.

With an estimated 1,600 cycles each year, the right opener for your overhead garage doors is essential to their proper function. Talk to a garage door opener specialist at Habpro Garage Doors.

Angela V.

I’m so glad that I contacted Bill @ Habpro when the spring in my garage door broke. I called mid-morning and he had a technician at my home that afternoon. The technician was kind and extremely professional. He had the garage door fixed very quickly and for a great price! I would ABSOLUTELY recommended Habpro to all of my friends and family! What a great experience with great people!

Kaylee F.

Wonderful quick service. They helped me find the part to replace and came out within a few days. Greg was able to have the problem fixed within in hour time and also gave me some insight as to why the problem happened in the first place. Price was very reasonable as well. Will def be using this company again and refer them to my friends and family.

Daniel B.

Fantastic service and premium quality product. Bill gave me competitive prices on two insulated metal doors and programmable openers, scheduled the installation at a convenient time for me, and Chuck who did the installation show up right on time. After he thoroughly cleaned up, he stayed and helped sync both vehicles to the openers. I highly recommend Habpro. You won't be disappointed.
