Garage Door Openers
We understand that everyone has different preferences when it comes to their garage door. That is why we offer a wide range of garage door openers and garage doors to choose from. Upgrading your garage door opener to one that is much quieter and smoother can make a big difference. Our technicians will discuss your needs and recommend the best opener for the type of door and garage construction that you have.
The main step in purchasing a garage door opener is to determine the drive system that your garage door will be using. There are three types of drive systems: belt driven, chain driven and direct drive, each having their own pros and cons. Another important point to be considered in a garage opener system is the horsepower and motor warranty. The average lift/drop speed for automatic garage door is 7 inches per second. If the motor is too powerful it can be a safety risk and if not strong enough it can burn out.
Why get a garage opener
The main benefit of a garage door opener is of course safety. Automatic garage door openers have built in sensor that can detect anyone’s presence below the garage door shutter. This will prevent the door from accidentally closing on people or things as well as alert the homeowner in times of danger. Manual garage doors are also easier for intruders to break into, allowing them easy access to your valuables and home. Automatic openers are built to withstand typical break-in methods, keeping you and your loved ones safe.
Baltimore winters may be milder than other places, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t get cold. Automatic garage door openers can help protect you from the freezing weather by allowing you to open the door without stepping out of your car. Not to mention having to grab the metal clasp on the manual doors will freeze your fingers off. Even if the weather is nice, it’s still a hassle to open the door to drive the car out and then get out to close it. It’s much more convenient to just press a button and have the door come down or go up by itself.
