Nowadays, advancements in technology offer state of the art systems for your Shoreham garage door. There are 4 basic types of garage door openers, all of which have a motor that moves on a trolley.

  • Chain Drive- This opener uses a metal chain that moves on the trolley. It's generally the cheapest of the four but definitely the noisiest. This opener is great for garages that are detached from a house.
  • Belt Drive- A rubber belt is used in place of a chain. This device is much more quiet than a chain drive. It's fair in price and great for garages that are attached to homes.
  • Screw Drive- This opener uses a long, threaded rod in its movement. It's quiet, low maintenance, and perfect for garages close to living quarters.
  • Direct Drive- Direct drive garage door openers are the simplest of the four. There's no belt, chain, or rod. This may be the most expensive, but requires very little maintenance and is great for both residential and commercial garages.

Garage Door Opener Horsepower

Horsepower (HP) is the driving force behind the up and down movements of a garage door. The size and weight of your Shoreham garage door are used to determine the horsepower needed. The motor of a garage door runs on either an alternating current or a direct current.

  • 1/3 HP- This horsepower is generally used in single car garages.
  • 1/2 HP- This horsepower is good for duel-vehicle, sectional-door garage units.
  • 3/4 HP- Larger homes with more high tech garage door opener systems use this horsepower, especially if it is frequently used.

The average homeowner opens and closes their garage door over 1500 times per year. An efficient garage door opener is imperative for continuous, reliable use of a garage door.
