An ideal opener where weather and temperate are constant.

Screw drive openers are the least common type of garage door opener. They operate a lot like a chain or belt drive with a motor box mounted to the ceiling, but rather than a belt or chain pulling the door, the motor turns a screw and this will open and close the door.

Screw drive openers tend to work best in locations where the weather and temperature is constant throughout the year. In areas with a wide range of temperature throughout the year, a screw drive opener is not recommended. They are slow and noisy, but are the least expensive of the drivers. These garage door openers can be installed easily.
