Signs That Your Garage Door Spring May Need to Be Replaced
Garage door springs are durable, but they are not indestructible. If you often use your garage door or your garage door springs are old, you may encounter the following signs:
• The springs are not in one piece.
• The garage door does not open or only lifts a few feet and closes again.
• The garage door is extremely heavy when trying to lift it manually.
• The cables on the side unwind.
Our Garage Door Spring Repair Best Practices
Replacing springs is a complicated and dangerous process, as the springs store a large amount of force. For that reason, we built best practices that every one of our technicians follows.
Replacing Both Springs
If you have a two-spring system garage door and only one is broken, we will still replace both of them. This practice ensures that both garage door springs will have the same strength and that your door will move evenly. If only one spring is replaced, the door may come out off-track.
Using the Right Springs
Installing the right spring is not a simple fit, as each garage door needs a different type of spring that exhorts the right amount of force to balance it. For that reason, our technicians carry with them more than 100 different types of high-quality springs.
Every garage door spring replacement we do is accompanied by a thorough safety inspection. This is not only to ensure safety while doing our job but also to check that all the hardware and parts of your garage door are in good working condition.
Types of garage door springs
Extension springs are the vertically mounted springs on each side of the garage door. They are connected to pulleys and are responsible for keeping the door balanced.
On the other hand, the torsion spring lies horizontally at the center of the top of the garage door opening. It is mounted on the torsion tube and held in place by the center brackets.
Extension Spring vS Torsion Spring
Which spring is better?
Between torsion and extension springs, torsion springs are the more preferred spring system as they are safer, more durable. and long-lived than extension springs. Furthermore, torsion springs allow for smoother and even garage door operation.
Replacing Extension with Torsion System
You don’t need to worry if you have an extension spring system and you want to convert it to a torsion spring system. We are able to provide every garage with the option to convert their extension spring system into a torsion one, whether it is residential or commercial.
What Not to Do After the Springs Break
We can’t stress this enough. Working around broken garage door springs is extremely dangerous. If your springs break, the last thing you want to do is to operate your garage door using your opener. Doing this will only incur further damage to your garage door system. Likewise, don’t try to lift your garage door manually. The door might crash down and cause a serious injury.
Given the safety risks of replacing your garage door springs, we highly recommend that you leave the job to the pros. If you need emergency garage door spring replacement, you can call us anytime.
