Your garage door is the biggest moving object in your entire home. There are many pieces that work together in harmony to make it work.

One of the most important components of your garage door’s system is the belt. If your opener is a belt driven unit, it’s designed for doors with enormous weights and to open and close smoothly and quietly. But like any other moving part, a belt will gradually wear, tear, and may eventually break.

The good news is, when a belt breaks, it’s because of recurring tension over time. The belt can usually be replaced easily and without having to replace other parts.

Trained professionals, like those at our garage door repair company, can replace belts easily. We urge homeowners not to try it on their own, however.
