Simple answer? call these guys> http://www.amigodoor.ca/

If you plan to install yourself, get a chamberlain belt drive. They go on sale all the time.

Belt drive > chain drive, especially if you have finished living space of some sort above the garage.

What size of door or doors will push your selection of the size of unit you need 1/2hp to 3/4hp.

Completely agree that a belt drive is the way to go if your living space is over the garage.

Chamberlain is the big boy in this space.

Think about what you'll want beyond just remotes for the car(s). Outside keypads are quite handy.

We've always had good service from "The Door Doctor" and those that ha e worked for them.
