3 Factors to Consider when Choosing a New Garage Door Opener

April 10, 2017

Whether you are building a new house or you are replacing an existing garage door opener in your Tulsa area home, there are several factors to consider. These can range from necessary details to make sure you install a model that works with your new or current door to options for added convenience and security.

Working with a professional can help, but if you are looking to learn more before you call, consider these factors that will be evaluated to select the right product for your home and lifestyle:

The Garage Door to be Opened

The type of door you have can impact the options you have for an opener. You will likely be asked if you have the common sectional metal door, a sectional wood door or a one-piece construction style door. Whether or not you have windows insulation on the door can be another influence in the selection process. If you plan to make any changes to your current door or be replacing it in the future matching the right opener now can help.

Comparing Chain/Cable to Belt Operation

Garage door openers can range from contractor grade to higher end models with several features. One important difference to understand is belt versus chain/cable for how the door is lifted. This can impact the noise level, so in homes with bedrooms over the garage area it is important to take this aspect into account.

Access and Control Options

Wireless keypads, smart control panels and other accessories make getting your garage door open even easier. Back-up options are another detail to ask about. When focusing on this part it is important to consider everyone who comes in and out through the garage door, and what the best options are for your lifestyle. If you have more than one garage door you will also need to work on how you plan to access multiple doors.

When you are choosing a new garage door opener for your Tulsa area home, working with an experienced team can help. Superior Overhead Doors has decades of industry experience and access to a wide selection of openers to meet nearly any need.
