Garage Door Openers
Why buy Overhead Door™ Openers vs Box Store Brands
Warranty: When you buy anything from a box store, whether that be a garage door opener or a garage door, you are only going to get the manufacturer warranty. If the product is bought from a dealer, we will warranty the installation as well as the manufacturer warranty. Not only that, but this makes future repairs much easier because the technician should have the necessary parts and pieces available on the service truck vs. the owner having to contact the manufacturer themselves to obtain the correct part number.
Quality: Box store brands are made by the same companies as dealer brands, but with cheaper hardware and parts. This is one of the main reasons you may find it cheaper, and hard to price match, because as much as a product looks to be the same, it is not. The hardware is going to be lower gauge and less sturdy, whereas a dealer is going to provide professional grade, heavy hardware for the install of the same brand. The biggest difference in box store brands vs dealer brands is the operator rail. The box store is going to sell you a three-piece rail vs. a one-piece rail from a dealer. So, what is the difference? A three-piece rail is going to flex more, and not stay as rigid, which in turn puts more strain on your door which could cause future issues. The reason they are selling a less sturdy rail is because it is more efficient for the box store to package and ship.
Tax, Shipping & Time: Ever get to the end of your online cart, go to checkout, and you have an additional $200 in tax? Maybe even shipping? A door dealer has the tax already built in.
