Featured Openers


87504 LiftMaster Garage Door Opener

Considered the garage door industry standard, belt-drive openers are some of the quietest on the market. These are a great option if you have an attached garage – they produce so little noise, you probably won’t even hear your garage open!

While they tend to be a bit pricier than other opener types, many homeowners find the quiet operation 100% worth it.

8165 ½ HP DC Chain Drive LiftMaster Garage Door Opener

Chain drives are some of the most popular, affordable, and durable openers available. Their high weight capacity makes them a great choice for homeowners with large or heavy garage doors.

However, they’re typically noisier than belt drive openers, so they may not be the best option for attached garage doors.

8550WLED LiftMaster Garage Door Opener

Direct drive openers are known for their compact and streamlined design. They mount directly to the side of the garage door, eliminating the need for a ceiling-mounted rail system.

This design frees up overhead space in the garage, making it a great choice for garages with limited headroom. Like belt drives, they’re also very quiet, but typically come with a higher price tag.

Is Grage Door Opener Replacement Necessary?

There are several scenarios in which garage door opener replacement is necessary. We’ll typically recommend that if:

  • Your opener was installed before 1993 – If your garage door opener has been in use since 1993 or earlier, it’s we’ll recommend a replacement. Federal regulations were updated in 1993 to enhance garage door safety. While it’s uncommon to encounter openers older than that, if we do come across one, it will likely will fail to pass our safety inspection.
  • The company was successfully sued for safety defects – We prioritize your safety, which is why we install garage door openers from reputable brands only. If a manufacturer has faced successful lawsuits due to safety issues, we will not repair their openers. However, we can replace them with a reliable and secure alternative!
  • Your opener was recalled or taken off the market – We won’t be able to find the necessary replacement parts.
  • Your opener doesn’t have safety sensors – Photoelectric safety eyes are an important feature that became mandatory in 1993. These eyes ensure safe garage door operation by detecting objects in the door’s path and preventing accidents. If your current opener lacks this feature, we won’t be able to repair it.
