When you need a new garage door opener, you have three choices: chain drive, screw drive, and belt drive openers. Chain drive openers are highly reliable and are the traditional choice for residential use, but you might want to learn more before you decide on this type.

Garage door openers are generally reliable, but it’s not completely unheard of for one to stop working. There is a problem with your system that requires immediate inspection and assistance if:
A roller chain, much like what is used to pedal a bicycle, is used to operate a chain drive garage door opener. The roller pulls a “trolley” back and forth along a track, and the garage door is connected to the trolley by a draw-bar. This type of operation makes the chain drive opener very strong, but sometimes these types of openers can be a bit noisy—especially if the roller chain is old and worn down.
Chain drive garage door openers offer highly reliable operation and are ideal for most doors. Although a little noisier than screw drive and belt drive openers, chain drive garage door openers are the most economical choice. Also, units that hide the chain may be a little quieter in operation.
