Yahoo Article: Plano Overhead Certified by Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation!

We studied as a team over the past 4 months and spent over 30 hours in meetings going through 400 pages of material in our Service Technician Manual, in addition to the 200 pages of material provided by the Institute of Door Dealer Education and Accreditation. Certification isn’t required in Texas, and less than 5% of garage door companies in Texas employ I.D.E.A. Certified technicians; but we were up for the challenge!

According to the I.D.E.A., we are now the first company in the United States with over 5 employees to have every technician pass their exam to become certified on the first try!

All of our service technicians are also professionally field trained, Google Verified, background checked, drug tested, fully insured, and are full-time employees. Since 1977, our technicians have provided award-winning service, repairs, and installations in the Dallas area. They install only the top product lines from the leading suppliers of both garage doors and garage door openers. All of this is in addition to our free in-home estimates, same day scheduling, and award-winning service!

We continually invest in our people and our process. We recently invested in Surewinders for all our technicians. They are made from aircraft grade aluminum and are actually now the most expensive tool that they use. Surewinders allow our installers to safely wind and unwind torsion springs and prevent rotator cuff injuries from winding springs all day the old way with steel rods. It also prevents the serious hand, face, and other injuries that we used to have from springs breaking while being adjusted.

We also invested in software that sends a text message with a picture and bio of our technician when customers schedule an appointment. Customers also get a link to recent reviews written about their installer, and a link that lets you track the technician in real time on Google Maps when in route to your home.

Liftmaster 8550WLB

8550WLB Features and Specs

See it Work in Person!


Typical setup is between 5 and 15 minutes.  Monitor your garage door, see how long it has been open, close it or open it, get optional alerts and notifications, and so much more.


No power?  No problem.  The Liftmaster WLED includes a battery backup system that kicks in when the power goes out! It uses a 12V DC battery that is always charged and ready, using a continuous trickle charge. This opener uses an audible signal to alert you when the battery is in use. Safety and security features still operate, ensuring protection during a power failure. Backup power also operates the opener for up to 40 full cycles in a 24-hour period.


The DC motor provides the homeowner with the quietest garage door opener on the market.


Time and Temperature Display

This model features a wall console with a motion sensor that automatically turns the lights on for you, and an LED time and temperature display. The wall console also has an adjustable light time delay. It is also equipped with an automatic maintenance alert system that scrolls any error codes on the LED display. It even has a lock feature that allows you to lock out anything that is programmed to the unit while you’re away on vacation, or in case of emergency.


Lifetime Warranty Belt

Similar to a camshaft belt, this model of garage door opener utilizes steel mesh inside of a quiet and durable belt. This prevents you from getting the steel on steel grinding, while maintaining the durability and longevity of a chain.


Lifetime Warranty 3/4 HP DC Motor

This is what separates our belt drive from the rest. Permanent lubrication through steel enclosed gears, with self-adjusting force and limits. You can see AND hear the difference.  All other openers use exposed plastic gears that wear out every 4 to 8 years. This motor ensures a longer life and smoother operation than any other garage door opener.


Other Features

Our Liftmaster garage door openers include rolling code security technology, infrared safety reversing sensors, and 2 multi-function remotes. They have auto force settings so that the garage door opener adapts to weather and changing environmental conditions, and internal electronic limit settings. It has a one-piece solid steel T-rail with an automatic belt tensioner on the trolley. The new energy-efficient operation consumes up to 75% less power in standby mode. Also features a built-in surge suppressor.
