Even the most beautiful garage door in the world isn’t really convenient without a garage door opener. Homeowners interested in simplifying the process of opening and closing their garage doors have many different options to choose from, including chain drive, belt drive, and screw-driven models as well as a jackshaft, and direct-drive models. Jackshaft and direct-drive garage door openers are the quietest of all garage door units but can require more maintenance. When choosing a garage door opener, consider your budget, whether the sound will disturb anyone in your home, and how much focus you want to put on maintenance.
