Our technicians specialize in taking care of spring-related problems. These components play an incredibly vital role in supporting the weight of your garage door panels, but they can also be very dangerous and must only be handled by experts.
Torsion and Extension
There are two main types of springs that are commonly used today. The extension type are installed in pairs, one on each side of your door, and they extend and contract in order to help your door move up and down. The torsion type springs operate quite differently. Due to the nature of their action being that of twisting and unwinding, they are considered stronger, and are therefore preferred for heavier doors. Usually, only one is installed horizontally above your door, threaded through a steel shaft. The type of spring you will need will depend on the weight, size and type of door you have.
When a Spring Breaks
This type of scenario is not only when it happens, it remains dangerous even after the loud bang resounds and the spring loses its tension. Your door will most likely become inoperable under such a condition, and even it would be somehow possible for you to use it, just trying to do so while a spring is still broken can cause the panels to collapse.
Whatever You Need
If you need to have a broken spring replaced, or to have it lubricated and adjusted to ensure its performance remains optimal and smooth, you can count on our team to get it done for you. It is vitally important that you do not try to handle such a task on your own, as you could get seriously injured.
