Salt Lake City Garage Door Opener – Should I get a jackshaft opener?
you are looking to get a new garage door opener installed then you might be wondering which type is best for your circumstances. In most homes we use a belt drive opener or a chain drive opener, both of these openers are housed on the top of the garage in the middle and they lift the door from there. The jackshaft opener is a very specific opener only used in certain situations. The primary use of a jackshaft opener is to save space in a shorter garage. The jackshaft opener is housed on the side of the garage allowing more headroom for a taller car. These openers are generally recommended for condos and smaller spaces, but would not be the best option otherwise. Click here for more info on openers!
