Your garage door is the biggest moving object in your entire home. It may not seem like it, but the simple fact that it’s able to smoothly open and close only occurs with numerous components working together in harmony. When one of those components fails, the door will either work erratically or fail to work entirely.

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 it’s designed to open and close smoothly and quietly. But like any other moving part, a belt will gradually wear, tear, and eventually break altogether.

While that’s the bad news, here’s the good news. When a belt breaks, it’s usually caused by recurring tension over time. The belt is a component that can usually be replaced fairly easily and without the need for replacing other parts. We should quickly point out that belts are easy to replace by trained professionals, and it isn’t uncommon for homeowners to damage their system or themselves while attempting a repair on their own.
