A garage door opener gives you easy access to your house and, definitely, some security.

When you choose garage door openers you think of their reliability, convenience and functionality. And, of course, it should fit your home needs and style.

Chain Drive Openers
Chain drive openers are traditional steel chains built for extra strength and durability. Such openers are ideal for detached garages. One difference is that chain drives are simply stronger: they can lift more than a belt drive. This makes them the choice for moving heavier doors, so consider them if you’re going with a steel carriage. But this won’t be a factor with lighter door models. Go with a chain drive if you have a 2-car garage door.
Belt Drive Openers
Belt drive openers are the luxury choice for those who insist on quiet operation and sleek design. These openers have the same mechanism as those used on chain drives except for the substitution of a quieter belt for the chain. The low-vibration belt is made from polyurethane, steel-reinforced rubber or fibreglass. Belt drives are the quietest openers and cost a little more than chain drives. They are perfect for heavy garage doors.
Screw Drive Openers
A screw-drive opener uses a steel threaded rod upon which a trolley rides. The rod is turned by an electric motor that moves the trolley and the attached door. The attraction of this opener type is its simplicity. A screw-drive opener is the easiest to maintain and has the fewest moving parts. Screw drives are somewhat temperature sensitive and may require more frequent maintenance in applications that experience dramatic seasonal temperature changes. Screw drives are noisier than belt drives and are the most expensive type of opener.
