Signs It’s Time for Garage Door Opener Installation

Like any household item, garage door openers will eventually reach the end of their lifespan and need replacement. If your opener is reaching the 15-year mark or displaying any of the below signs of an issue, it may be time to consider a new garage door opener installation. 

  • Garage door works inconsistently.
  • Garage door starts to open and reverses.
  • Garage door makes unusual noises. 
  • Garage door opener is 15+ years old. 
  • Garage door remotes and keypads don’t work.
  • Garage door is running but won’t open the door. 

Benefits of Smart Garage Door Openers

Smart garage door openers are WiFi-enabled to put the power of monitoring and controlling your garage door into your hands. Through an app on your smartphone, you can open and close your garage door from anywhere and keep a log of all activity. You can even set a daily schedule for your overhead door to close and lock. New advancements in smart garage door openers also allow you to use two-way voice control and video monitoring to take control of your garage door security. 

The industry’s leading brands, LiftMaster and Genie, offer versatile, easy-to-use options for smart garage door openers. LiftMaster’s myQ offers secure control and monitoring through your smart device, video monitoring, Amazon Key In-Garage Delivery, and even video keypads. Many LiftMaster garage door openers come standard with one or more of these features. Genie’s Aladdin Connect provides many of the same features, including smartphone control and voice command, and also integrates with popular existing smart home providers like Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and more. 

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the quietest garage door opener?

If you want a quiet garage door opener, we recommend investing in a belt drive. These garage door openers operate on a rubber belt, meaning they produce fewer vibrations and less noise. We perform a lot of garage door opener installations with belt drive openers! To get an even quieter garage door system, you can also invest in an insulated garage door.

How often do garage door openers need to be replaced?

We recommend investing in a new garage door opener every 15-20 years. Because garage doors operate 2-4 times a day on average, your opener can develop wear and tear quickly. That’s why it’s important to invest in a quality new garage door opener and keep up with regular maintenance. 

What is the strongest garage door opener?

If you have a heavy insulated, real wood, or glass garage door, you’re going to want to invest in a strong garage door opener. Our favorite options are chain drive and jackshaft garage door openers. Chain drive garage door openers operate on a metal chain to provide maximum lifting power. Jackshaft garage door openers are installed beside the garage door and attach directly to the springs to ensure strength and durability. 

Which garage door opener brands do you install?

We sell and install LiftMaster, Genie, and Linear garage door openers. Over the last 43 years in the industry, we’ve found these garage door opener brands to provide the best products.

    Jacob from Fawley Overhead Door did an amazing job with my newly installed garage doors and openers. He explained how they worked and what I needed to do to get the wireless openers programmed the way I wanted. The job site was left very clean picking up after himself.

    We had a spring break on our garage door. Fawley was out the next day to fix the spring! Jake (sorry for calling you Luke as you were leaving!) was fantastic! Super friendly, quick and knowledgeable! We will definitely be using Fawley in the future!

  • Jake did an excellent job today. He was prompt,efficient, and speedy. He even removed a dead raccoon from my driveway. I'm sorry I hadn't done Spring cleaning in my garage before his visit. He would have had a lot fewer cobwebs and leaves to deal with.

    We have used Fawley Door for years. Todays project was replacing a door and door opener on an old residential garage. Gavin was exceptional! Professional, courteous, friendly, and incredibly effective. He took his time to ensure the door was properly aligned and the stripping covered all the uneven concrete at the doors base. We’re very impressed and would easily ask for him by name for future needs. Thank you for the great service and helping to improve the curb appeal of this 1945 bungalow!

    Kaleb Tafil repaired my garage door. He was very knowledgeable and thorough. It was evident that he enjoyed his job. And I enjoyed meeting him and listening to him sing while he worked. Kaleb is friendly, talented, and professional. Great guy with undiscovered musical talent.
