Liftmaster - Screw
Bay Area Overhead Door Co. is proud to be able to offer our customers a line of openers called Liftmaster Screw Drive openers. They have proven themselves in the garage door industry as the name to trust. Their priority is your safety and remains their focal point in anything they do.
What is a Liftmaster Screw Drive Opener?
A screw drive opener operates with a rotating screw in the middle that rotates the trolley connected to the lifting mechanisms. This type of opener is becoming increasingly popular because of its few parts. The few parts enable this opener to have more power to operate heavy doors as well as being less prone to breaking.
These openers are also relatively maintenance free and don’t even require lubrication, although you can still periodically lubricate the screw rod if it becomes noisy. The one downside to this type of opener is that it is not as quiet as a belt drive. The noise level is somewhere between a cable drive and a belt drive and you can cut down on the noise level by maintaining proper lubrication.
Is My Opener Under Warranty?
If your opener breaks, you might be wondering if the repair is going to be covered under your warranty. Liftmaster provides a 2-year warranty on their screw drive openers. To see if your opener is still covered or if your repair is covered, give us a call and we can find the warranty information for your particular opener.
We are also happy to assist you over the phone with some basic troubleshooting to see if it is your opener that is causing your garage door troubles. If we suspect your opener is malfunctioning, we can schedule a technician to come out to you at your earliest convenience to repair it or discuss your replacement options. Before calling, take a look at the back panel of your opener to find the model number.
Is a Screw Drive Opener the Right Choice for Me?
We generally recommend screw drive openers for those that are looking for something as durable as a chain drive opener but are willing to pay a little more. If you have a room that shares a wall with your garage and you want something that is durable and nearly maintenance free, a screw drive opener is a good option for you. If you have a room directly above your garage, we recommend something quieter such as the belt drive.
