You will find the tips provided in this section extremely valuable no matter whether you are a new garage door owner or what we might call a "veteran". There is always something useful to learn. 

Can I install an opener in a garage with a low headroom clearance?

Definitely. There are special low headroom hardware kits that can solve most of these issues. Of course, some outliers always exist, and you may need to have some carpentry or remodeling work done in order to be able to accommodate an opener inside your garage. There are also jackshaft garage door opener models that are installed against the wall and not on the ceiling, so there are options for sure.

Which type of garage door opener is the best one?

According to our experts, it all depends on your specific needs. A chain drive opener is more affordable than its counterparts, as well as very strong and reliable. However, it requires more frequent maintenance and is very noisy. A belt drive model will be practically silent, but will also cost more. A screw drive unit is the quickest of the three types and doesn't require a lot of maintenance, but it's also noisy and can be hindered by temperature shifts. Of course, there are all sorts of other things that need to be considered, so give us a call if you want to make an informed decision.

How do I test the safety features of my garage door opener?

Your opener has two main safety features. The first is the photo eye sensors, which you can test by waving an object in front of them while the door is closing. The door should reverse as a result. To test the force limit, place a two-by-four under the door and close using the opener. When the panels touch the piece of wood, the door should reverse. If it fails either of these tests, you need to have the problem examined and fixed.

A chain drive opener needs lubrication maintenance

The lubricant will reduce the friction between the chain and its rail and will make the garage door opener perform more smoothly and much less noisily. Use either a silicone spray or a white lithium-based grease and apply it evenly along the chain. After you're done, be sure to open and close the door a few times so it will spread evenly.
