Powered Overhead Door Opener
A Powered Overhead Door Opener allows one with limited shoulder, arm, hand strength or a back impairment to open/close large, heavy chain-hoist sectional or roll-up doors by simply pressing a button. Since they vary as to power source (e.g., battery, electric current, pneumatic) and lift capacity (e.g., light-, medium-, heavy-duty), the opener selection is important. Some can be controlled by a smartphone app.
Cost range: $600-$1,600, depending on door type, door size, powering system
