Is my garage door opener broken?

Since modern garage door openers are composed of so many different parts, it can be difficult for a layman to pinpoint the opener as being the faulty garage door component. 

​However, some common issues usually tend to point in that direction. An example is a door that starts opening but cannot do so fully. This technical issue has several possible causes, one of them being an improperly functioning garage door opener. 

​Another sign to watch out for while attempting to open your garage door is hearing the garage door opener working, while the door remains firmly grounded. Any unusual noise coming from your garage opener warrants an inspection from a trained technician. If a potential issue is caught early enough, repair and readjustment may still be viable options, and we believe prevention is the best medicine!

Chain drive garage door opener

​Chain drive garage door openers are some of the most common, being very durable and usually the most affordable choice. However, they aren’t ideal for households with a bedroom above the garage, as they do tend to be on the noisier side.

Belt drive garage door opener

Belt drive garage door opener

​Belt drive garage door openers are noticeably quieter than chain drive openers, due to the rubber belt replacing the chain. Most rubber belts are steel-reinforced, and are extremely durable, with the premium models offering a lifetime warranty. They are ideal for households with an attached garage in close proximity to living quarters. The belt drive reduces vibration as well, helping your opener go unnoticed while at work!

Jack shaft garage door opener

​Jackshaft garage door openers. while less common in the residential setting, are favoured by owners of garages with particularly tall ceilings, as they are mounted on the wall next to the door itself.

Garage door opener safety features

​We offer a variety of safety features with our garage door openers. Modern openers have a few key characteristics to lessen the risk of injury and help protect your home from intruders.

Photo eyes

Photo eyes are also known as safety sensors. Nowadays garage door openers are required to have photoelectric sensors, as they greatly minimize the risk of injury while using your overhead door. If an obstacle, or a person, crosses the path of the safety sensors – they will prevent the door from closing.

Rolling codes

Many modern garage door openers feature rolling codes. A rolling code feature will generate a new code after each opening of your garage door. This prevents potential intruders from intercepting a code that they could use to access your garage.

Auto-close feature

The auto-close feature comes in handy in settings with frequent unsupervised access to and from the garage, such as residential buildings, shopping malls, or any workplace with a large garage.  Auto-close allows vehicles to enter and exit, without having to wait to ensure the door closes back behind them. 


Garage door openers with built-in Wi-Fi can be connected to your home, or to an application, offering remote control and supervision. You can open or close your door from afar, and receive notifications when your garage door is in use.

Garage door locks

​This feature is incredibly useful for getaways and vacations. Your garage door can be locked manually, or via an application. This will prevent remotes from opening your garage, allowing you to enjoy your time away worry-free.
