Residential Garage Door Openers

BBB Accredited Business A Rating

For new installation or replacement of a garage door opener, Roadrunner Garage Doors recommends the Liftmaster brand. The secret to finding the best garage door opener for your home or business is honestly evaluating the amount of use the door gets and what is near your garage door. How many times per day, total, does your garage door go up and down? Is your garage door attached to your home? Is there a room above or adjacent to the garage door? Noise from the opener is a deciding factor.

Based on your answers to these questions, our experienced professionals can recommend the right garage door opener for you. In general, these are the characteristics for the different types of openers:

Chain Drive: 


Rugged and reliable. Suitable for most garage doors.

Belt Drive: 


Quiet and smooth performance. Ideal for garages adjacent to living areas.
