The best garage door opener is one that’s best suited for your garage and home. Factors to consider include the drive system, power, speed, and features such as remote controls, keypads, and lighting. The brand is important as well. Here is a short overview to help you select from the best brands of garage door openers, including the quality line from Precision Door Service.


Chamberlain has quite the reputation when it comes to powerful, durable garage door openers. The Chamberlain B970 is a belt-drive opener that, like many, can be controlled from your smartphone. It is quiet while a 1.25 horsepower motor can open any door with ease. An onboard 12 V battery provides reserve power so you can get your car inside during a power outage.

The C410 chain drive opener offers reliability and an impressive 1,500-foot remote control range. It also has a tamper-proof locking mechanism, while the snaplock rail system simplifies installation. With a built-in one-half horsepower motor, it is well-suited for a standard garage door requiring medium lifting power.

If a Wi-Fi garage door opener is on your wish list, try the B970, but if quietness and strength are your priorities, the B503 is the way to go. The WD1000WF takes things further by integrating MyQ as standard, so you can operate your garage door by voice. It also features an LCD wall panel in place of a keypad.


LiftMaster is another familiar name. Innovative garage door openers in this brand include the jackshaft-driven 8500W. Mounting to the side of the garage door, it frees up space above. While not cheap, it is quiet, smooth, and reliable with built-in Wi-Fi and battery backup. A physical garage door lock is included as well.

The 1355 Contractor Series Wi-Fi Garage Door Opener supports mobile connectivity and can be linked to your home network. Thanks to Posilock, your garage door can’t be forced open and, in standby, the system reduces power consumption by 75%. Then there is the EverCharge, which offers a universal fit, is suited for any type of door, and is run on mains power and a 12 V battery.
