History Of Garage Door Openers
Garage doors have been around for a long time. The first overhead garage door was invented in 1921 before that most people were using carriage style doors on sliding tracks or large public parking garages. But since that time, garage doors and their opening systems have evolved to be more efficient and secure. In 1996 the new technology was a rolling code system. Every time you pushed your button to open your garage, the code for it would change. This prevented people from gaining access to your garage. In 2013 the new technology was the ability to open and close your garage door from your phone.
At Legacy Garage Doors, we stay up to date on all the new technological advances within this field to ensure we can provide the best products for our Battle Ground clients. All of our technicians have comprehensive training and experience with garage door installation and repair. If you’re having problems with your garage and think you might need a new opener call Legacy Garage Doors and one of our technicians would be happy to inspect and repair or replace anything that needs fixing or replacing.
Repair Or Replace Your Opener
When there is something wrong with your opener, you know it pretty quickly. Your door isn’t opening as fast, it’s making a weird noise, or you can’t get it to open with your remote. Whatever the reason is, you can count on us to fix it. Sometimes it can be a simple repair like dead batteries in your transmitter, or your disconnect switch was enabled. But other times your opener is too old and worn out that repairing it would cost more than replacing it with a new one. Our technicians at Legacy Garage Doors will gladly provide both services for all Battle Ground residents. If your opener is fairly old and worn out, we do suggest replacing it with a new one because it will save you money on frequent repairs, and you will be able to upgrade to a newer model that will perform better and require much less maintenance.
Deciding On What Type Of Opener
There are several types of garage door openers. There’s chain driven, belt driven, screw driven, jackshaft and direct-drive. The most common and economical choice for openers is chain-driven. But if you have a room above your garage, you might want to opt for something else because these openers can be a bit noisy. The belt-driven openers are a great option, much quieter, a little bit more expensive, but well worth it in the long run. Screw-driven, jackshaft, and direct-drive openers are going to be your higher-end openers; very quiet, rapid opening and closing speed. Some of these openers only work with some systems and have different requirements. For instance, the jackshaft opener only works for torsion springs because the motor has to attach to the shaft above the garage door.
