What Is a Screw Drive Opener?
A screw drive opener operates with a large screw rod that rotates inside of the rail to operate the opening and closing mechanism of your garage. They are becoming increasingly popular because of how durable and reliable they are. Screw drive openers have a price tag and noise level somewhere between that of a chain drive and a belt drive.
These types of openers also require little maintenance with maybe the occasional lubrication to the screw rod. You will know if it needs lubrication if it starts to become a little noisier because of the rod drying out. These types of openers are also less prone to breaking since they have relatively few parts compared to other designs.
Is This the Right Opener for Me?
If you are looking for something cost effective but noise is a concern for you, this opener might be a good choice for you. If you have a room that shares a wall with the garage, this provides quite enough operation so you won’t disturb a sleeping baby. This opener is also a great choice for those who want something with low maintenance.
Recently, Liftmaster replaced the two-piece plastic rail system with a solid one-piece galvanized steel rail. This means that the opener has fewer amount of parts to potentially break as well as fewer parts to keep up.
What If My Opener Malfunctions?
Liftmaster typically provides a 2-year warranty on their screw drive openers. If your opener breaks, give us a call and we can help figure out if your model is still under warranty. There are also a few things we can try over the phone to get your opener back up and working.
Austin Overhead Doors is also an authorized dealer for Liftmaster. As authorized dealers, all of our staff are required to maintain ongoing training for their openers so that we are knowledgeable with all types of Liftmaster openers.
