“Purchased a new garage door opener to replace a 20 year old unit. I submitted several online request to local garage door service companies, and Northland Door responded within 4 hours of my request. I was contacted, and scheduled a time for a technician to come to my home. The technician (Dan) arrived on time and was phenomenal. He took down the old unit, replaced with the new, showed me what I needed to know about my new opener, and answered all of my questions. He even noticed that my garage door gasket didn’t go all the way end to end and fixed that as well. The old opener and any garage from the new all went with the technician. Dan was on-site for about 90 minutes, and the total cost was just over $100. I would highly recommend Northland for any garage door opener replacements.”

This lineup of the best garage door openers consists of belt drive and direct drive models. What are the differences, pros, and cons of each?

Belt Drive Openers

A belt drive garage door opener uses a polyurethane or rubber belt to move a trolley along a metal track to raise and lower a garage door.

Pros

  • Quieter than chain-driven openers
  • Fewer moving parts typically means reduced maintenance
  • Quiet operations make belt-driven openers an excellent choice for installing next to sleeping or living spaces

Cons

  • Belts can get dirty or out of alignment causing operational issues

Direct Drive Openers

Direct drive garage door openers are very quiet and have even fewer moving parts—one. The motor functions both as motor and trolley, moving along the track on a stationary chain to raise and lower the door.

Pros

  • Fewer moving parts usually means reduced maintenance
  • Powerful, durable motor
  • Wall mounting option
  • Reduces sound and vibration compared to other models
  • Ideal for installation next to sleeping or living spaces
  • Additional security features are available

Cons

  • Can be costly
