A popular, affordable opener for detached garages.

Chain drive openers are some of the most popular garage door openers available since they’re so dependable and typically the least expensive type of opener. The chain drive opener makes use of a chain around a gear and pulley system to pull the door open and closed.

They make more noise than a belt drive, so if your garage is located below or adjacent to the main rooms in your home, you may want to reconsider this opener. However, if your garage is detached or the noise does not bother you, this may be a good choice. They can be installed in just a few hours. We install several LiftMaster chain drive openers.
