Garage Door Openers in Fort Wayne, IN

When your garage door opener won’t work, it can be frustrating. Don’t put up with a garage door that won’t open — call Overhead Door Company of Fort Wayne for garage door opener repairs or replacement.

Types of Garage Door Openers

There are three main types of garage door openers:

  • Screw-drive: This type of garage door opener uses a steel drive screw that is directly engaged with the motor. Screw-drive garage door openers require no maintenance or additional lubrication, are fast, and provide the utmost in power.
  • Belt-drive: Belt-drive garage door openers boast smooth, quiet operation. This makes them particularly great for homes with living spaces like bedrooms adjacent to or above the garage.
  • Chain-drive: One of the most affordable and widely used types of garage door openers, chain-drive openers provide high value and reliable performance.

Garage Door Opener Repair & Replacement

If your garage door isn’t opening or closing, there is undoubtedly a problem—but not necessarily with the door itself. Sometimes garage door openers can cause issues that need to be solved immediately or the safety of your home is compromised.

Many issues with your garage door opener can be resolved through repair. But there are times when a replacement might be a better solution. We recommend garage door opener replacement if you have an opener that was installed before 1993. After that time, garage door openers were required to have a safety reversing mechanism and other much more advanced security features. It may also be a good time to invest in a new opener if you do not have a battery backup system and would like one for when the power goes out.

At Overhead Door Company of Fort Wayne, we offer 24/7 emergency repair service for garage doors and garage door openers. If you’re having problems and need help fast, don’t hesitate to call us at (260) 205-8509.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do chain drive garage openers work?

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.

What are the advantages of chain drive garage openers?

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.
