Should I Repair or Replace my Garage Door Opener?
At this point, you may be asking yourself ... would it be better to have the garage door opener repaired, or have it replaced outright?
SpringForce Garage Doors recommends repair of the existing opener if possible - and replacement if cosmetic appeal is an issue, or if the opener has suffered severe damage - from a fall, for instance.
For the more common failures, modern garage door openers can most times be repaired to "like new" functionality for a fraction of the cost of a new opener - without resorting to outright replacement.
This is especially true of LiftMaster / Chamberlain / Sears Craftsman openers, which are designed with servicability in mind.

What Brand Opener Should I get?
The garage door opener industry is currently dominated by two major players - The Chamberlain Group (makers of LiftMaster®, Chamberlain®, and Sears-Craftsman® openers) ... and Genie® (owned by Overhead Door Corporation) There are a few other minor participants, but the vast majority of the automatic garage door opener market is currently represented by these two manufacturers.
SpringForce can install most any brand - but we exclusively recommend and sell LiftMaster® Professional openers because of their consistent reliability and maintainability.
Furthermore, SpringForce does not recommend openers offered by home improvement centers and hardware stores, because of the weaker 3-piece rails found in these retail boxed units. The professional grade openers that we install all come with solid one-piece rails for maximum strength and reliability.
Why have your opener professionally installed?
- Quick, professional installation - usually just a couple hours.
- Solid one-piece rail
- Complimentary professional door evaluation
What Type of Opener Should I Get?
Chain-Drive vs. Screw-Drive vs. Belt-Drive
Chain Drive - The oldest and most established technology. The trolley is driven by a sprocket and chain arrangement not unlike that found on a bicycle. The venerable chain drive is a reliable and economical solution, but does require a bit more maintenance than newer technologies due to the tendency of the chain to stretch over time.
Screw Drive - Designed to run a bit more quietly, and to require less maintenance than the chain drive arrangement ... the trolley engages a rotating threaded shaft that runs the length of the opener rail. Maintenance on these units is minimal because there is no chain to stretch. Additionally, LiftMaster® Screw Drive openers are more maintenance friendly than some competitor's offerings because they are designed to run without the use of any special lubricants (like Genies)
Belt Drive - A more recent development in opener technology ... the trolley is driven by a cogged belt in an arangement similar to the chain drive - but requiring less maintenance due to a built in self-tensioning device. Belt drive openers are made with low maintenance and quiet operation in mind. The quietest operation to be found in any opener is in a DC motor / Belt Drive unit such as the LiftMaster® Elite™ Series with the EverCharge™ Battery Backup System.

How to Prepare for Our Arrival
Please be aware that our service technicians need room to work. If you are having a garage door opener installed or serviced, it is important to have the interior area of the garage clear from the jamb to at least 9 feet back. The driveway will also need to be accessible to a service truck - clear of all vehicles, waste cans, and other obstructions.
