Types of Garage Door Openers

Choosing Metro Garage Door Repair isn’t just about fixing a problem—it’s about investing in a solution that lasts. Here’s why countless homeowners and businesses trust us with their garage door needs: 

Chain Drive Openers

A chain drive garage door opener is the most economical and reliable option. The chain drive uses a metal chain to pull the trolley, which moves your garage door up and down. It’s not as quiet as other options but it is less likely to need service due to its simplicity. Many LiftMaster belt drive models are also quiet enough for garages that sit below or near a bedroom or living room.

LiftMaster offers a wide range of chain drive models from 1/3 HP, which is ideal for single standard doors up to 1-1/4 HP that can lift heavier wooden doors or carriage house style doors. If you have any questions about garage door openers give us a call at 888-845-3667
