Garage Door Opener Repair vs. Replacement

While a lot of issues your garage door opener may have can be resolved with a repair, sometimes replacement is a better solution. With that said, we recommend garage door opener replacement if you have an opener that was installed before 1993. From 1994 on, garage door openers were required to have a safety reversing mechanism and other much more advanced security features.

The average garage door opener is meant to last you for many years. In most cases, your opener can be fixed through repairs. Our technicians can perform a thorough inspection of your unit and the issue at hand in order to help you find the best solution.

Types of Garage Door Openers

There are three main types of garage door openers.

  • Screw-drive: This type of garage door opener uses a steel drive screw that is directly engaged with the motor. Screw-drive garage door openers require no maintenance or additional lubrication, are fast, and provide the utmost in power.
  • Belt-drive: Belt-drive garage door openers boast smooth, quiet operation. This makes them particularly great for homes with living spaces like bedrooms adjacent to or above the garage.
  • Chain-drive: One of the most affordable and widely used types of garage door openers, chain-drive openers provides high value and reliable performance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Get a New Remote Control For My Garage Door Opener?

Yes; your local Overhead Door distributor—the Overhead Door Co. of Greater Cincinnati™ team—can provide you with different opener accessories, including remote controls to wireless keypads. You will first need to determine if your opener is a newer model with CodeDodger® or an older model that does not have CodeDodger®. If your opener was manufactured before 1980, you have an analog type opener that we no longer carry remotes for, and your system will need to be upgraded with a new receiver kit. These kits are available in our parts department.

How Long Do Garage Door Openers Last?

A garage door opener should last, on average, about 10 to 15 years. However, if you keep up with proper maintenance, you can increase its lifespan. Professional maintenance usually includes lubrication of moving parts, reversal test, etc.

Are Garage Door Battery Backup Systems Worth It?

Overhead Door’s garage door opener battery back-up is compatible with multiple openers and will run up to 50 cycles in 24 hours after the initial power outage. These systems are really convenient, especially in areas where storms can be severe.

Can I Install a Garage Door Opener Myself?

It is possible to install a garage door on your own, but it requires a lot of time, skill, and expertise. It is best to trust garage door experts with the job so that the installation is completed efficiently and effectively.
