Garage Door Openers and Remotes

The Best Garage Door Opener & Garage door opener repairs.

Automatic garage door openers are a convenience that most people hardly ever think about. But one rainy day without one will remind you they’re must-haves for homeowners and prospective homebuyers alike.

And if they’re stuck open or shut, that’s an emergency. Garage door openers are remarkably reliable considering their complex combination of numerous items that could get out of whack.

Our well-trained specialists are ready whenever you need a garage door opener repair, a replacement opener installation, or just a new remote.

We use only products from leading manufacturers, and together with our experienced mechanics, you can count on a smooth, quiet operation for many years to come. We serve all Houston and surrounding areas.

Garage Door Openers Drives

There are several types of reliable and economical drives to choose from.

  • Belt drives are the quietest and can have the longest life. Reduced noise is especially important if bedrooms are above or adjacent to the garage. The best belts are Kevlar reinforced rubber.

  • Cable drives and extension springs are more commonly found on older and economy models.

  • Chain drives are the strongest, but a bit noisier.

  • High-lift and vertical-lift mechanisms don’t need rails and are used mostly in commercial buildings.

  • Jack Shaft drives mount on the wall to one side of the door, saving a bit of space.

  • Screw Despite needing less maintenance solid steel screw drives with bearings are not as popular as they once were, partially due to cost.

The Best Garage Door Opener Remotes

You use it every day, but you probably don’t think of your garage door opener as a piece of technology worthy of an upgrade. Maybe you should. These excellent models have satisfying buttons in advanced features that make them harder to hack.

 

Genie 3-Button Remote with Intellicode Security

Genie 3 button

If you’ve got a Genie garage door opener that isn’t older than 1997, then their 3-button remote control is a great upgrade. It includes a visor clip and rolling-code technology for added security. With the ability to control up to three Genie doors in one remote, you won’t have to juggle extra remotes. The buttons have a great feel and are easy to distinguish by feel.

 

Dihome 4-Button Universal Gate and Garage Door RemoteBest Design: Dihome 4-Button Universal Gate and Garage Door Remote

This remote is designed to work with most major brands and is simple to program by cloning up to 4 existing remotes. The four buttons don’t add more size, as this remote is smaller than a business card and can fit on your keychain or clipped to your visor.

Replacement Criteria

If it’s time for a replacement, don’t just install any old opener.

 We’ll be happy to discuss these important factors in choosing the right products with you.

  • Power For most homes a 1/2 HP (horsepower) door opener is fine. 
  • But for heavy doors choices go up to 1 1/2 HP, and more.
  • Battery Backup Even economy models usually have a rechargeable battery backup to get you in and out during a short power outage. Premium models may offer as many as 20 open and close cycles for major blackouts.
  • Safety Sensors “Photo eyes,” force, and other obstruction sensors for the safety of people
    (especially children), pets, and vehicles have been required since 1993. You’ll want an expert installer for a sturdy mounting together with thorough adjustment and testing.

Garage Door Opener Repairs and Maintenance

Regular garage door opener inspection, adjustment, and lubrication avoids many garage door opener repairs, and are especially important for commercial and high-usage openers. Repairs are often just a few small parts, but if you’re in for more extensive work or your door was installed prior to 1993 it’s probably time for a replacement installation.
