Garage Door Opener

We stock, sell, and repair LiftMaster® garage door products based on the company’s 60-year track record for high performance, longevity, and ease of use. We also carry universal garage door openers, in addition to the Genie and Sears brands.

These are the four types of garage door openers we carry:

Screw Drive Openers

Screw drive openers use a lifting device that slowly moves along a threaded steel rod. It has few moving parts and is engineered to work well in extreme temperatures—good for Aurora homeowners, for example.

Chain Drive Openers

This common type uses a metal chain to open and close the garage. It also works well in extreme temperatures such as Southern Colorado’s mountains. If you have a heavy door, this type of opener has maximum lifting capacity and a quiet operation that will easily lift a heavy custom or designer door.


Jack Shaft Openers

​If your garage has minimal space, a low or high ceiling, or an obstruction, then this type of unit works best. The Jack Shaft maximizes space because it is wall-mounted. Some units have an optional standby power system that allows continued operation if the power goes out.

Belt Drive Openers

This type of opener is our “go-to” version based on its high horsepower and reliability. It will work well for years at a time without repair. In addition, this unit is known for its low noise feature so you won’t disturb anyone who happens to be above or adjacent to the garage.
Many units have an integrated battery backup system that will guarantee access in and out —even during a power outage. It comes with a manual release handle that we consider another key feature.
Some openers are designed to work in conjunction with your smartphone or computer. They will close doors, turn off lights and perform other remote activities—from anywhere. This opener contains ‘people and things’ safety features as well.  For example, it projects a light beam across the door opening that will cause the door movement to reverse if an object causes the beam to be interrupted.
