Door Opener

There’s more to a garage door than the large door itself. Not only is there a door to install or repair, in order for the door to work properly, it relies on a complex system of hardware including tracks, rollers, and springs. An optional garage door opener makes opening and closing the garage door a simple matter of pressing a button.

Garage Door Hardware
Because the smooth operation of any garage door is dependent upon its inner workings, Houston Garage Door Repair uses high quality hardware and parts.

Garage Door Openers
Garage door openers come in three basic types: chain drive garage door openers, belt drive garage door openers , and screw drive garage door openers. Chain drive openers are the most common type of garage door openers due to their simplicity and lower price tag. However, they are relatively loud. The quietest choice is a belt drive opener which uses belts rather than chains to lift and lower the door. Belt drive openers also feature dynamic security codes that automatically change with each use, making them extremely secure. Screw drive openers use a threaded steel rod to move the garage door into place. With few moving parts, these openers are reliable and require very little maintenance. They are among the slower openers and noise, though not as loud as chain drive models, is an issue.

Whether you want an entry level garage door opener or an ultra quiet belt-drive opener, contact Houston’s garage door repair experts for a professional, high quality installation.
