With the installation of automatic garage doors becoming increasingly popular, there is lots of variety on the market allowing you to really personalise and adapt your garage to suit your needs. With this flexibility comes the choice of different opening systems, of which there are three main types. If something goes wrong with your door, it is important to know which opening system you have, in case this is the root of the problem.
Screw drive openers- are relatively simple, with minimal moving parts. Thus, they are a straightforward option with less possibilities for damage and error. However, they are temperature-sensitive, hence perhaps less suited to regions with significant seasonal changes.
Chain drive openers- are the oldest and most established garage door opening system. They are often noisy, due to direct metal-to-metal contact between the chain and its corresponding track. However, they are considered an economically-viable option for many households.
Belt drive openers- are comparable to chain drive openers, only the chain is swapped out for a belt. This reduces noise and also increases the smoothness of movement, thereby providing what might be regarded as a slightly more luxurious option.
As with most systems, the chance of complications and damage increases with the complexity of the unit. The more moving parts there are, the greater chance there is for something to go wrong. As with anything, performing regular, careful inspections will help to detect damage early before it progresses to something more severe. However, since opening systems are such a fundamental part of your garage door, they will naturally deteriorate with time and use, eventually reaching the end of their lifespan. Inspecting them and ensuring they are well maintained will perhaps extend their lifespan slightly but, ultimately, such systems will require repair or replacement.
With each type of opening system comes different possibilities for damage. Chain drive openers are perhaps the most standard openers, hence the means by which to repair them are readily available. However, here at E. S. Garage Doors, we have all the tools required to investigate, repair and replace any installed opening system. In most cases, if damage is detected early, it is possible to just replace small parts of the system. This will be assessed on a case-by-case basis and our honest opinion will be given to ensure the most cost-effective work is carried out for you – be that part replacement or the installation of a complete new unit.
