How to Choose a Garage Door Opener?

It is hard to quantify the peace of mind homeowners have when their garage door functions without issues. This is because garages connected to the rest of the home is often an overlooked gateway for thieves and burglars. To protect the investment and valuables in your garage from theft, it’s vital to get a durable garage door opener with a plethora of features and add-ons.

Before ordering a garage door opener, here are some buying pointers to look for.

Your Needs

You need to evaluate and the upgrades needed because openers out there offer different functionalities. So, it’s essential to identify your need and to select the perfect unit for your garage door. If your living space is directly above or adjacent to your garage, you may go for a quieter system to prevent unwanted sounds. 

When your garage is connected to the rest of your home, the remote-controlled unit can help you get in and out of your facility easily, seamlessly and efficiently.

Clearance above the Garage Door

Ensure the door opener you’re buying will fit the clearance space of your garage door. For instance, trolley-style openers require at least a minimum clearance space of 2 inches. 

In case you can’t find a perfect system, a garage door installation expert should help you install extension kits or make other necessary modifications, especially for taller doors. Professionals at Bob's Advance Garage Doors will be happy to inspect your garage and identify other suitable options and offer you reliable garage door repair services in your area. 

Types of Door Openers

Central chain and central belt driven trolley, as well as jackshaft openers, are the common units available on the market.

Motor Size

The weight and size of your garage door will also influence your opener selection. Garage doors can range from lightweight, uninsulated to heavy units with glass or solid wood insulation.
