Different Strokes for Different Folks: Types of Garage Door Openers

You wouldn't buy shoes without knowing if they fit—and same goes for picking out a new opener among the different types available. Let’s break them down:

  • Chain Drive: The blue-collar worker of openers—reliable but loud enough to wake up everyone in the house.
  • Belt Drive: Smooth operator alert. Quieter than chain drives because rubber belts are way less chatty than metal chains.
  • Screw Drive: Likes things straightforward—it uses one long threaded rod which makes it fast-moving and durable…until dust decides otherwise.
  • Direct Drive: The minimalist cousin—the motor itself moves along a stationary chain; talk about low maintenance.
  • JACKSHAFT DRIVE (JSD): Hides off on the side instead of overhead—perfect for those high ceilings or unique setups where traditional openers won’t cut it.

If Your Beloved Opener Is Having A Meltdown, We’re Talking More Than Just Convenience At Stake Here. It’s Safety And Security On The Line–Because An Unpredictable Garage Door Can Be As Welcoming To Intruders As A Mat Saying ‘Come On In.’
