Garage Door Opener Repair vs. Outright Replacement

Are you wondering if you should repair your garage door opener or buy a new one? If your opener is more than 10 years old, you should consider installing a new model. Openers have really come a long way over the last several years. For one thing, a new opener will most likely be quieter. If your opener still runs off a chain drive that looks like a bicycle chain, there are much quieter alternatives available as screwdriver or belt-drive garage door opener. Screwdrivers are a big improvement over chains. Belt drive powered doors are even quieter than screwdriver models. New doors also feature battery backup, which can be handy during a power outage. Smart garage door openers have become quite affordable as well. This way, you can control the door remotely and even view it from your phone.
