Choosing The Right Opener For Your Las Vegas, NV Garage Door

So you've got a gorgeous new garage door. Now what? Chances are you don't want to have to manually open it every time - in fact, it's likely you can't on your own. You need a high-quality, reliable garage door opener to take the grunt work out of the process and automate things. However, the choice of opener is just as important as the choice of door - there are many factors to take into account to make sure you select what's right for your home. Martin Garage Doors of Nevada takes you through every phase of that choice, from initial consult to installation, and we're there to help when your opener needs a little TLC as well.

Multiple Factors To Consider

You need a garage door that fits your individual situation. Do you use it sparingly? Is it a main entrance to your home? Think about the considerations below when making your selection:

  • Size / Use - If you have a standard door that you'll be using primarily to let cars in or out, you can opt for a less powerful opener. On the flipside, if you use your garage as a primary entrance, or have a large or particularly heavy door, you'll need something with a little more juice.
  • Battery Backup - When the power goes out, will you need to get in and out of your garage? If the answer is yes, you'll want an opener with a battery backup. If the answer is no, you can skip that option and save some money.
  • High Tech / Low Tech - This is more of a personal preference. Some people just want an opener with a simple button to open and close. Others are interested in smart, wi-fi enabled openers that can be controlled remotely by your smart phone - even when you aren't at home. Choose what's right for you.
  • Location, Location, Location - What rooms are near your garage? You'll want to think about noise levels. Chain drives offer a lot of power but generate a lot more noise; belt drives are more quiet and won't cause as much of a ruckus to adjacent rooms.

Types Of Garage Door Openers

Belt Drives

Belt drive garage door openers make use of a reinforced rubber belt to raise and lower your door. They offer quiet operation, making them ideal for garages that are near bedrooms or living rooms. They are fast and smooth, but require a little more maintenance, particularly in areas with high heat or humidity which can affect the rubber belt.

Chain Drives

Chain drive garage door openers are stronger than belt drives as they use a heavy chain, similar to what you'd find on a bicycle. They are more durable all around, but that extra power also comes with extra noise and commotion when they're operating. Because it's a chain and not a belt, they are less prone to slipping.


A side- or wall-mounted garage door opener is ideal if your garage has an unusually shaped ceiling or you're looking to keep your ceiling space freed up for storage. They are mounted right next to your door and take up much less room. They are easier to maintain, but also have less power than other openers.
