Garage door - yes / motor - no
We have Overhead install 2 new garage doors with new belt drive openers. We love the doors, great quality and value. We bought the insulated doors with metal on both sides and white washed windows in the top row. Top notch!
However, the garage-door opener with a belt drive is truly frustrating to me. A friend has a motor from the same company which you cannot hear at all when the garage door opened. The ones we have are extremely loud in comparison. And one motor is louder than the other. Quieter than the chain driive we had before but overall I do not hear the difference in noise I expcted.
I would buy the doors again but would stay away from the motors. Especially when I pointed out before we bought it that noise is one of 2 prime reasons we want to replace the old doors.
I contacted the company about this problem via survey, technician and sales person but have not received any feedback.
