Looking for Garage Door Opener Repair and Installation in Reston VA?


These days, most home owners have garage door openers for their garage doors, that’s why we have a division in our service list specifically for Garage door opener repairs and installation. Most garage door openers installed here in America are usually made by Manufacturer’s like Liftmaster, Chamberlain Garage Door Openers, Wayne Dalton Garage Door Opener, Sears Craftsman, Genie Garage Door Openers and Overhead Garage Door Openers. These are the top major brands in the garage door opener industry and some of the best.

Here at Glade Garage Doors, we prefer to install Liftmaster or Chamberlain Garage Door Openers for our customers because of the relationship we’ve established over the years with these manufacturer’s and we trust their products, having used them ourselves.

Garage door openers usually come in either Belt driven, Chain driven, Screw driven or Jackshaft. All four models work great to serve the customers needs depending on the options they’re looking for.

Our belt drive openers are usually for customers who have a bedroom above the garage door and are looking for a quiet operation i.e. The garage door opens and closes effortlessly with the least amount of noise so as not to disturb the person in the bedroom above. It’s a great option and has good manufacturer’s warranty.

Our Chain drive openers and great for customer’s looking to save some money and also get good quality garage door opener. The Chain driven openers are quite strong mechanically and can last for a long time, in most cases up to 15 to 20 years.

The Screw driven openers are not commonly used these days. Most manufacturers are doing away with the screw drive openers and making more of the Chain and belt drive openers. Although some screw drives still exist in the market today, the added benefit for this option is less maintenance and durability.

Finally, the Jackshaft operators, as the name sounds you can right away know that it attaches itself to the shaft of the garage door. Jackshaft operators are usually great for homes with high ceilings or very little or no headroom above the garage door but have a little room on the side of the door. The jackshaft operators work great with any kind of sectional garage door and just like the belt drive, they can move the door up and down effortlessly with very little noise. Some of the best Jackshaft operators like Model 8500 are made by Liftmaster.
