A chain driven garage door opener is great for heavy doors. A common type of garage door is now wooden. This is a perfect place to use one of these. Chain drives are usually built with a more powerful motor. They are also very rugged and handle different weather conditions well. The downside is that they are noisy. Although, noise isn't as big of an issue as it once was.
Screw drive openers have been around for along time and are very common. They typically work buy having a lifting mechanism that moves along a threaded steel rod. These are quite powerful and come in variety of different horse power motors.
The last type of door opener is a belt driven model. These can be very useful if you don't want much noise. If there happens to be a bedroom near you may want to consider one of these. The belts do have a tendency to wear out a little fast then the other types of models. Belt driven openers typically don't have the power that the others have either.
