How long does a garage door opener last?

Door openers typically have a lifespan of between 10 and 20 years. Some models may last longer than others. New features, safety improvements, etc will continue to be added, so when an older unit fails, the repair costs and age must be considered before deciding whether to replace or repair.

Here at John's Garage Doors, we know what to look for in quality garage door openers, and we only carry the best.  If your opener is fairly new and not working, it probably doesn't need to be replaced - there may be some simple issues with it that can be fixed.  But if your opener is more than about 10 years old, chances are that you would be better off just replacing it with a new one.
