Your garage door opener is not only an incredibly complicated piece of machinery but it also does have enough moving parts which can wear out and break over the time. Whether you own a garage door opener from one of the big manufacturers such as Liftmaster, Genie, Linear or the ones of the smaller manufacturers, either way it is inevitable that eventually your garage door opener will break and would require repairs.

Types of Garage Door Opener
Garage doors mainly come in four main types: chain-drive, belt-drive, screw-drive and jackshaft. Each of these types has its own uses. It is up to you to decide which one fits your needs in the best way. Chain-drive is usually noisy but relatively inexpensive when compared to the others. They are also strong enough to lift heavier doors, while belt-drive and screw-drive are both quieter but tend to be more expensive when compared to that of chain-drive openers. If you have any doubt as to which type of door opener fits your needs, you can always contact a Secure Garages professional who are experts in the field to give you an overview and an estimate regarding the same.
Does your door require a little more push to get it up? or would you prefer the luxury of a screw drive or belt drive opener? If your answer to it is yes, then you might want to consider Jackshaft openers which are a newer innovation which mounts the opener on the wall instead of the ceiling – they are usually very quiet and quicker but have a very high price tag. If you prefer a quieter garage door opener, then definitely this type is recommended as it is quiet and safe and there aren’t any parts which are mounted on your garage ceiling.
Garage Door Opener Safety and its Security
One thing many would not be aware of is that if you have an older garage door opener that was made prior to the year 1993, then you should definitely consider to replace it – all the openers made after the year 1993 are required by the law to have all the safeguards in place that would automatically reverse the door if any obstruction is detected. If you have any small children or pets in and around your home, it is definitely required that you should consider replacing your old garage door opener with a modern opener. Along with this the modern door openers are available with a wide range of standard and optional features. They also include the “rolling code” technology and the battery back-up during power outages in case of any emergencies.
Effectively repairing a garage door opener requires a lot of specific knowledge and skills. That is why it is important to hire a trained technician from “Secure for Sure” when your garage door opener stops working.
