Many people purchase their home blissfully unaware of what type of garage door opener they have. If it works and it doesn’t sound like a freight train they’re fine with it. It’s only some time later when the opener quits on them, or when they decide to replace the whole door for whatever reason, that they come face to face with the choice: should their new door have a chain, screw or belt drive?

Below we’ll go into the differences between the chain, screw and belt garage door opener so you can make an informed decision.
