Liftmaster Garage Door Openers-Chain Drive

There are 4 different types of Liftmaster garage door openers to choose from, chain drive, screw drive, belt drive, and side mount jackshaft opener. Today we are going to focus on the most popular model which is the Liftmaster 3255 1/2 HP garage door opener.  This has been the choice of most homeowners who want low-cost but reliable garage door motors.  Southern Home Creations has installed thousands of these openers throughout the metro Atlanta area.  Some of the standard features include the following:

1) 4-year motor warranty

2) Protective sensor safety eyes

3) Equipped with PosiLock® – stops intruders by securely locking the garage door when it is down

4) Manual release handle in case of power failure

The Liftmaster garage door opener can be installed by one of our technicians in less than an hour.  All of our technicians go through an extensive training class to become Certified Southern Home Creations garage door & garage door opener installers.  They always do safety tests on your existing garage door to make sure the springs are balanced correctly and that the overhead door is working as it should. Many people think that the garage door opener does the heavy lifting to raise and lower your overhead door but that’s not the case.  It is the springs that do all the work and the powerful Liftmaster Model 3255 only acts as a guide to assist the springs.  We will be blogging about all the different models over the next few weeks so keep checking us out at or call us at 770-831-0301.
