Garage Door Opener
Choose A Garage Door Opener
Garage doors range from lightweight, non-insulated aluminum to heavy models with insulation, glass, or solid wood. Look to a 3/4 horsepower opener for heavy residential garage doors, while a 1/2 horsepower opener will suffice for a lightweight, simple door. Your garage door opener controls what may be the largest, heaviest moving object in your home. Safety is crucial. Federal law requires all garage door openers made since 1993 include sensors to prevent the door from striking anything that may be in its path. Here are some garage door opener options to fit you budget with safety in mind.
