Perhaps the most important components of your garage door are the springs. These are the hardworking "muscles" of your system as they're responsible for bearing the load each time you open or close your garage. They’re built to last, but the intense strain they’re put under means they can inevitably wear out and weaken. Our technicians provide maintenance services to extend their working life, as well as repair and replacement parts for when they break.
Replacing A Broken Spring
When a spring breaks it often puts your door out of action completely, so it’s essential to get this fixed as quickly as possible. Our technicians carry spare torsion and extension springs with them, so they’ll be ready to replace worn-out parts on the spot. Often, our technicians will need to replace both of your door’s springs; otherwise, the tension won't be equally distributed.
Torsion And Extension Springs
The most common type of spring today is the torsion type. This is a long coil of high-strength wire that stretches across the ceiling, and takes the weight of the door by winding up tighter and tighter. These springs are strong and durable, and they’re simpler and safer than extension springs. Extension springs however, can be cheaper and a better option when there’s not much headroom in your garage.
Professional Maintenance Services
Regardless of the type of spring you have, it’s essential to have these parts looked over by professionals now and again. Our technicians can apply corrosion-resistant lubricants to keep your springs moving smoothly and rust-free. We'll also make sure your springs are correctly calibrated and check that tension is evenly distributed. These components can be very dangerous if not handled properly, which is why we strongly advise against trying to service your garage door springs without professional assistance.
