ABOUT GARAGE DOOR OPENERS

Garage door operators, or openers as they are known to most people, are one of the most common reasons we get calls for garage door repair. Calabasas homeowners aren’t the only ones who find garage door opener malfunctions not just an inconvenience, but many times an emergency situation. Whether for security reasons, or you can’t get your car out of the garage to drive to work, repairing or replacing opener systems is always a high priority.

No matter what operating system brand you have, a call to Archway for garage door repair will provide you with a prompt, professional fix. Our expertise includes everything from motors to accessories that are part of your garage door opener.

When the warranty is up on an opener, like any other machine, you will soon need a new one. The alternative is constant breakdowns. For this reason, we highly recommend that you invest in a quality garage door operator. No, they aren’t cheap, but you can count on reliable operation for many years to come.

Well-built operators also run a lot quieter. Surprisingly, the clacking and banging racket every time your garage door goes up and down is totally unnecessary. The most commonly installed openers are attractively priced and noisy for a good reason. That’s how the manufacturer designed them.

OPERATOR DRIVE SYSTEMS

Belt, chain, or screw drive… Those are your options for garage door opener systems. Wondering which is better for your garage door opener? You will find many professionals installing screw drive opener systems at a savings, but for the homeowner this does mean a loss of quality. Rails are in several pieces with openers available at all the major home centers for do-it-yourself installations. However, professionally installed rails will always be in one solid piece, giving you a much stronger rail.

The quietest operating system will always be the belt drive with a DC motor. In fact, belt drive openers are your best investment in quality and dependability, where chain drive are entry level in both motor and rail. The decision isn’t just one you can make based on brand and model. You want to ensure that you have the right opener for the type of door you have. The size and weight of the door will determine the horsepower of the opener motor you need. The right one will deliver many years of trouble-free use.
