Garage Door Openers in Chicago 

Whether it is equipping your recently purchased home with a brand new garage opener or replacing an old one, we have it all. There are many different options when it comes to choosing a garage opener, and that is why our catalog offers the perfect fit for you. When selecting a garage opener, you have the option of: 

Chain Drive 

Chain-driven garage openers use a metal chain to operate the mechanism that opens and closes the garage door. Chain drives are a very affordable and reliable option, but you also need to take into concern the noise factor. Because it is operated by a chain, these door openers can often result in a lot of noise. That is why we recommend a chain drive for those who have a detached garage from the rest of the house. 

Belt Drive

Belt driven garage door openers use a rubber belt to open and close the garage doors. We highly recommend belt drives because of their smooth motions, and because the trolley moves over rubber and not metal, this is also a tranquil option that requires little maintenance, unlike chain drives. 

Screw Drive

A screw-driven garage door opener uses a steel rod to open and close the doors. The screw drive has few moving parts and can be easily maintained throughout the years. They are also both considerably silent and run without a hiccup! 

Direct Drive 

Direct-drive openers are one of the best options for homeowners. It is easy to use, and the motor itself is what opens and closes your garage doors. This removes the need for any other parts, and any costs of repairs in the future will be inexpensive and quick. Direct drives are perfect for any size of a garage, and due to its noise-free perk, it doesn’t matter where the garage is located, you will barely notice the doors opening from wherever you are in the house!
