Table of Contents

Whereas it may not be a good idea to get mom a vacuum cleaner, or worse yet, a broom for Mother’s Day, dads love tools. What dad wouldn’t like a tool set? Even for those dads not mechanically inclined, a tool

set with a few wrenches, a couple of screwdrivers, and a pair of pliers is an OK gift, but a garage door opener is a much better gift.That’s why the right garage door opener with or without installation is a perfect gift for Father’s Day.

Sure, if you and dad are mechanically inclined, you can tackle that garage door opener installation.If not, call the Garage Door Doctor in the Houston area, 578-7659. But first, you will need to pick out the right garage door opener for dad.

Whereas you could choose another brand, we here at the Garage Door Doctor in Houston have been repairing and installing garage doors and accessories for decades, and we know which opener performs the best and needs the least maintenance, and that would be the LiftMaster®.

LiftMaster® makes a variety of proven reliable door openers, but as a Father’s Day gift, we would like to discuss these three possibilities. There are basically three types of garage door openers:chain driven, belt driven, or screw drive door openers. A chain driven door opener is the most frequently installed, as it’s very reliable, and the chain, unlike a belt does not wear-out or break. With the proper maintenance, a chain-driven door opener will perform its mission reliably and quietly for years to come.
