Types of Garage Door Openers
Chain Drive Garage Door Openers
Chain drive garage door openers use a bicycle-like chain to pull the garage door along the overhead rail. Generally budget-friendly and reliable, chain drive openers are a good choice for homeowners that want serviceability for their standard garage doors. However, because many of the parts are metal, chain drive garage door openers are known to have a noisy operation.
Belt Drive Garage Door Openers
For quiet, low-maintenance operation, we recommend belt drive garage door openers. These run on a rubber belt, creating less noise in your garage and fewer vibrations to wear down parts. This leaves you with a long lasting and durable new garage door opener. We recommend belt drive openers for homes that have rooms above or beside the garage.
Direct Drive Garage Door Openers
In a traditional chain or belt drive operation, the opener itself is stationary while the belt moves. But direct drive garage door openers use a stationary chain with a traveling motor carriage. This ensures quiet operation, maximizes power, and minimizes wear and tear. Although direct drive openers come with a higher price tag, you’ll see a great return in longevity and easy maintenance.
Wall Mount Garage Door Openers
We love recommending wall mount garage door openers because they reduce noise and vibrations, giving your garage door a quieter and smoother operation. They also free up overhead space – allowing you to add fans, fixtures, or storage to the garage ceiling – because they are installed on the wall directly beside your garage door. If you’re looking for an opener with a clean look and maximum lifting power, contact us to learn more about wall mount openers!

Frequently Asked Questions about Garage Door Openers
How do I make my garage door quieter?
If you want a quiet garage door, we recommend upgrading your garage door opener to a belt drive, direct drive, or wall mount model. We can also help you select an insulated garage door that has reduced vibrations and assist with annual garage door maintenance to lubricate grinding or squeaking parts. All this will not only give you a quiet garage door system, but also a long lasting one.
Are garage doors and openers sold together?
Because garage doors and openers are rated for different levels of use, we do not typically sell them as a package. If you’re looking to upgrade your entire garage door system, we’ll guide you through selecting a new garage door first, then help you find the best-rated opener to reliably lift your new door for a long time.
What garage door opener brands do you carry?
Our favorite garage door opener brands are LiftMaster and Sommer because we believe that they provide consistently durable, long lasting products. Both brands also provide a wide range of drive types and models to choose from so we can find the best solution for your garage door opener installation.
