garage Door Openers

Choose the right company. You can install a garage opener yourself but please follow the instructions to the letter. If you choose to have a professional install it for you, make sure you choose a reliable company.

We go out on thousands of calls a year and often find short-cuts were taken during the installation of a garage opener fly-by-night companies and Big-Box retailers' subcontractors, who might be installing carpets one-minute and garage door openers the next.

These shortcuts can compromise the operation and the safety of the garage opener. It is not uncommon for us to hear stories about pets being trapped under garage doors because a short-cut was taken during installation. These shortcuts pose a huge liability risk for the company, but they don't care because they know you'll never find them again.

Automatic garage door openers are extremely safe when installed correctly and there are as many reputable companies as unreputable ones in the industry, just do a little work to make sure you are hiring a professional.

When choosing a particular garage door opener, note that there are 3 different types:

  • Belt Drive Openers
  • Screw Drive Openers
  • Jackshaft Openers
