We encounter several common garage door opener problems that can cause the door to stop closing properly. For example, when the garage door opening and closing is too slow or not closes all the way down, the remote control is not responding and the door stops working, etc. Each one of these problems require a different solution, and our garage door technicians have experience with all of them. Here are some of the most common problems:


Grinding Noises

One of the most common garage door problems you may encounter is hearing unusual grinding noises. The issue typically lies with the gears inside the garage door opener. If you have a garage door that starts making grinding noises, it's important to take action right away.

Remote or Keypad aren't responding

An issue with your remote or your keypad can become a major inconvenience. Fortunately, this problem can be solved sometimes by replacing dead batteries, also, verify that the antenna on the motor is pointing straight downward since it receives the keypad's signal. However, don't hesitate to give us a call and ask for expert advice if troubleshooting the matter yourself didn't help.

The Garage Door Opener is Not Closing the door

If you notice that your garage door opener does not allow you to close your garage door, something is amiss. There are several reasons for this to happen such as problems with the garage door sensors or with the door limit settings of the garage door opener.

Emergency Release is Pulled Down

The garage door emergency release is a feature that allows the garage door to be manually operated. This can come in handy when there is a power outage for example. To solve this issue all you need to do is to engage the emergency release.

Types of Garage Door Openers

There are different types of garage door openers, mainly a chain or a belt-driven one.

 Each of these has its advantages and disadvantages.

Chain-Driven Garage Door Opener

As the name suggests, this garage door opener uses a metal chain to open the garage door. The operation is by moving gears and metal plates.


The residential chain drive opener is one of the most affordable options on the market, which contributes to its popularity among homeowners. Both the product and installation are less expensive than other openers.

The chain opener is a great choice for anyone with heavy doors because the metal links can lift any door weight, including two-car and wooden doors. Belt drive garage openers are at risk of breaking when trying to lift very heavy doors, so the chain opener belt makes it ideal for that purpose.

Because the metal in the chain is so strong, the chain drive opener has a significantly longer lifespan than any other type of opener. The one drawback is that it must be properly maintained and lubricated on a regular basis to achieve its full potential and vastly outlast the life of a belt drive opener.


Garage Door Opener

The belt-driven garage door opener uses a rubber belt to open and close the garage door. When the door is triggered, the rubber belt slides the trolley.


There are many advantages to this type of garage door opener. Belt-driven doors produce less noise than chain-drive doors because the belt creates a smoother motion. In addition, belt openers tend to be very strong and durable, often lasting for years without needing any replacements or repairs.

In terms of cost, belt-driven doors are among the cheapest types of openers available. Screw-drive garage doors, on the other hand, are considerably more expensive than belt-driven garage doors. Finally, these garage door openers operate faster than other choices and can quickly open and shut a garage door.

Belt-drive garage door openers may have a higher initial price tag than chain drive systems, but they will save you money in the long run. With no need for lubrication and little wear and tear, belt drives can last much longer than chains with minimal maintenance required.


Wall Mount
Garage Door Opener

A wall-mount garage door opener, is connected to the door’s torsion bar instead of the rail track to operate the door.


Jackshaft openers save you room by being located on the side of your
garage rather than in the middle. This means you’ll have fewer cables to
worry about, too.

If you have a high lift garage door, which includes a track that runs at the top of the door vertically, then the Jackshaft is the only option available to you. As a result, you have more clearance for your vehicle within the garage, which means you can park taller vehicles like big trucks or even have a car lift within the space. This is a great option if you have an exceptionally large, tall vehicle.

• A jackshaft opener for your garage generally looks better than a standard garage door opener. It is more modern and even has Wi-Fi connection, meaning you can control it right from your smartphone.
