A Garage Door Opener Brisbane Homeowners can Depend On

It’s no secret that garages are an integral part of any home. Just ask someone who doesn’t have one! In fact, they are so important that research suggests the average residential garage door is opened no less than 1500 times a year!

This is why the garage door opener you choose is so important. With every open and close, the garage door opener is stressed and worn. You need a door and door opener that’s durable and is going to last, saving you money and time.  Using a licensed Garage Door Installer like Russell’s Garage Doors, will negate any warranty issues if any problems arise.

What’s the Best Garage Door Opener in Brisbane?

Essentially, a garage door opener is made up of a motor that moves a trolly, which is connected to the door, allowing it to open or shut. The things that differentiate the types of opener is what utility drives it. It might be a chain, or it might be a belt or threaded parts. There are a variety of options available on the market with each garage door opener having its own upsides and limitations.

Chain Drive

A chain drive garage door opener utilises a metal chain to activate the trolley which then opens or shuts the door. Overall, the chain drive option is the most cost-effective and a popular choice for the average household. There are a couple of things to be aware of before you commit 100% though, including the noise due to the chain moving. Whilst inexpensive, it can make excess noise.

This option is best if your garage is detached from the house or you have a solid door between your garage and the rest of your house, limiting the amount of noise that carries into your home.

Belt Drive

A belt driven garage door opener utilises rubber (instead of a chain) which slides the trolley to open or shut the door when activated. One of the added benefits is that the movements are smoother and quieter than a chain drive. They are also simpler parts-wise, meaning maintenance is easier.

Do I Need a Licence to Install My Own Garage Door Opener in Brisbane?

Whether it’s your first garage door opener or you’re repairing an existing one, it can be a difficult and daunting process. You don’t need a licence but unless you’re a professional, there really is no benefit to installing a garage door opener yourself, particularly as the installation requires precision.
