Garage Door Opener Installation
There are two important components to garage door opener installation. These include choosing the best opener for your home and ensuring it is installed properly. J.A.G. & Sons Overhead Door can guide you through these steps to assure both the safety of your family and to maintain the health of the overall door. To find the best opener for your home, we offer great brands and all varieties. No matter your budget or the specific needs of your home, we will set you up with a reliable, long-lasting opener. While it is important to have the right garage door opener for the right door, you must have it correctly installed. This assures that nothing happens to you or your family when operating the garage door. This is where the expert technicians at J.A.G. & Sons come in with excellent workmanship and friendly service. You can trust us to guarantee the functionality, quality, and safety of any garage door opener installed by our technicians.
We recommend garage door opener replacement when your current opener reaches around 15 years old. This is recommended because all garage door parts operate on a 10-15,000 cycle lifespan. Once it nears the end of that span, you should start receiving annual maintenance to ensure that it continues to function without an underlying problem.
Our Garage Door Opener Brands
We install new garage door openers from two of the best manufacturers in the industry: LiftMaster and SOMMER. These two brands offer the most reliable, long-lasting products in a wide range of customizations. Both LiftMaster and SOMMER also have the best safety, security, and convenience technology. From automatic locks to ultra-sensitive eye sensors that trigger automatic reverse, a new opener from these two brands will do the most to protect your home and family. They also have the best in convenience technology. In particular, most openers that they sell are Wi-Fi compatible. This means you can open and close the door through an application on your phone. Additionally, you can receive notifications when the garage door is opened or closed. You can even keep a log of garage activity on the application for security reasons. With all these advancements, your new opener will upgrade your entire garage door system.
Types of Garage Door Openers
A garage door opener is an interior motor that works with the tracks, rollers, springs, and cables to pull up and let down your garage door. It is typically located on the ceiling of your garage near the center or to one side of your garage door on the wall. Because your garage door opener does so much of the work to ensure the proper operation of your door, buying a reliable model is important.
The primary types of openers include:
Chain Drive Garage Door Opener
A chain drive garage door opener operates by pulling the garage door on a metal chain to open and close it. It is the most common and affordable type of opener. On the downside, a chain drive garage door opener also tends to be the noisiest option and needs replacement more often because the moving parts wear more quickly than other openers.
Belt Drive Garage Door Opener
Instead of operating on a metal chain, a belt drive garage door opener uses a rubber belt. This makes it a much quieter option for new garage door opener installation. The rubber belt also causes fewer vibrations and extends the life of your parts.
Direct Drive Garage Door Opener
A direct drive garage door opener is the quietest and longest-lasting opener variety. It is the best quality because it has a stationary chain inside a steel rail with a traveling motor. This lack of moving parts means the motor experiences very little wear and lasts a long time without repair or replacement.
Jackshaft Garage Door Opener
A jackshaft garage door opener is a relatively recent advancement in garage door openers. Instead of being installed on the garage ceiling, we place them on the wall beside the garage door. A jackshaft or wall mount garage door opener is a great option for high lift tracks.
Screw Drive Garage Door Opener
For screw drive garage door openers, the motor rotates a steel rod to lift and lower the door. This tends to be a mid-range option between chain and belt drive in terms of noise and longevity.
From an affordable opener that gets the job done to the latest in security technology, we have the options for you. No matter the particular needs of your garage door system, we can upgrade it with a new garage door opener that will function reliably for years to come. Although we only sell and install LiftMaster and SOMMER products, we will repair any brand of opener.
