Choose your drive:

garage door opener repair, replacement servicesBuilt in every garage door opener is a drive system.  There are different types of drives which are the chain drive, the belt drive, the screw drive and the computer controlled (torsion drive.)  The chain and belt drive are most commonly used; the best one depends on the predicament you are in. The chain drive is the most economical drive on the market.  However, a chain drive system uses a chain made of metal which lifts the door up and down along the tracks causing it to make a lot of noise when it opens.  This type of drive is recommended to those who have a commercial door (not attached to the house.)  If you have a residential garage (attached to your home) then perhaps it is worth the extra $50 to purchase a garage door opener with a belt drive.  This drive is the quietest and very discreet.  This drive is inaudible because it uses a rubber belt along its tracks to open the garage door.  Is the belt drive better than the chain drive? There is no yes or no answer, the answer relies on the environment you are in and what best suits your needs.  So if you live in an apartment complex and your garage door is a commercial garage door then it is sensible for you to purchase the chain drive and save some cash.  However if you live in a residential home and your garage door is attached to your home and you want to enter your home without disturbing anyone then the belt drive is the most suitable for you.

Which Manufacture has the best Garage Door Opener?

Long Island Garage Doors offer garage door opener installation services.  All of the garage door openers we offer work really well.  However, if you are interested in learning a little more information before you make your purchase that is 100% understandable.  The Genie and Liftmaster are very popular amongst our customers.  There is an iota of a difference between the two.  The prices, quality and reliability are quite similar however, LiftMaster is the most recommended and most often used.

Both the LiftMaster and Genie have rolling security code systems which change the access code every time you push the button which is wonderful because it prevents theft and break-ins. 

Both garage door openers come with two keyless opener systems/keypads and a remote.garage door opener repair, replacement services

They both also have built in safety systems that include automatic stop and reversing systems which is vital if you have pets or children.  The automatic stop is also beneficial for ventilation purposes.

The Genie and the LiftMaster also provide an Overcharged Battery System which runs up to 40 cycles in case there is a power outage.  So if there is a sudden blackout, your garage door will still be capable of opening and closing.

Most importantly both garage door openers have built in safety systems which will prevent the door from closing onto anything in the way of the door path.  This is an especially important feature for those of you that have pets and children.

The LiftMaster also has a Residential Jackshaft Opener which is a unique one of its kind.  This opener is mounted on top of the garage instead of the ceiling for garages where space is crucial.

Both have either ½ horsepower or ¾ horsepower.  ½ horsepower is good if you have a lighter residential door. ¾ horsepower is a little more powerful than the ½ horsepower and is meant for heavier commercial garage doors that require a little more force to open.

What if you don’t want to call a technician right away and you rather test your garage door opener on your own first? Here are two tests you can try on your own before you call us:

You can just do a force setting test by holding the bottom of the door while it closes which should force it to reverse.

  1. If the first test does not succeed try laying a 2x4 flat on the ground and use your remote to close the door.  If it does not reverse then it needs repair.garage door opener repair, replacement services
