In reality what we need is just an opener that works as long as we have it and never breaks down or fails. You can do all the research you want but at the end of it you will make your choice based on what you have learned usually from a Google search reading on forums,reviews and consumer reports.


I will tell you from my experience from being the garage door go to guy repairing, replacing and installing openers for all types of doors. Hands down LiftMasters are my number one choice day in and day out. I install them, repair them and sell them. Think I want to sell my customers something I have to come back and repair for free on my own time? Nope. The fact is LiftMasters are like the energizer bunny and I am like the Maytag repairman. These openers are the workhorse of the industry. Do they break down? Yep, but less than any other brand. I have seen LiftMaster openers operate in the most extreme environments and they just keep going. Sure there are a multitude of models, accessories and options but at the end of it all, it’s what I own and it’s what I recommend and it’s what i sell unless a customer requests something different.

My number one choice is a LiftMaster 8360 chain drive D.C. battery backup, it’s quiet, it has power to spare and it works when the power is out, what else do you need? Internet capable as well if you want to monitor your garage. Yes they have key FOB remotes, transmitters, door sensors and other accessories Liftmaster is the industry leader year after year and can not be beat.
