Garage Door Opener Installation

In Lafayette, Marion, and the surrounding areas, we offer garage door opener installation to upgrade the convenience and reliability of your garage door. We perform garage door opener installation for two leading brands, Raynor Garage Door Openers and LiftMaster Garage Door Openers.
Because garage door openers tend to last 10-15 years, garage door opener installation usually becomes a concern for long term homeowners. You’ll know it’s time to consider new garage door opener installation when you see the issues with your garage door:
- Vibrations from your garage door and opener
- Opening then automatically reversing
- Screeching, grinding, or squeaking noises
- Intermittent and unresponsive opening

Garage Door Opener Types
There are three primary types of openers that we use for our garage door opener installation services: belt drive garage door opener, chain drive garage door opener, and wall mount garage door opener. Each of these have different pros and cons based on the needs of your garage door system and your budget for garage door opener installation. Read some brief information below, and give us a call if you’d like to discuss garage door opener installation!
Belt Drive Garage Door Opener
If you’re looking for quiet and durability from your new garage door opener, consider a belt drive garage door opener. This opener type operates on a rubber belt, creating minimal vibrations for a smooth, almost silent garage door operation. With a belt drive garage door opener, you also cut down on potential repairs and maintenance costs because its durable construction makes it last years longer. Both Raynor and LiftMaster have several belt drive garage door opener options to upgrade your garage with garage door opener installation.
Chain Drive Garage Door Opener
A chain drive garage door opener is the most widely available and affordable type of garage door opener. Like most overhead garage door openers, a chain drive garage door opener operates on a rail and trolley. But, as its name suggests, a chain drive garage door opener operates on a metal chain. Because of this construction, chain drive openers tend to be noisier and have a more involved maintenance routine.
Wall Mount Garage Door Opener
Modern garage door openers have been trending towards wall mount garage door openers like those available from both Raynor and LiftMaster. It is also known as a jackshaft garage door opener or side mount garage door opener. A wall mount garage door opener installs beside the garage door instead of overhead, attaching directly to the garage door springs. This makes a wall mount garage door opener stronger and more durable, great for heavy garage doors. A wall mount garage door opener also frees up your ceiling space.
