Garage Door Spring Repair
Whether your garage door runs on extension springs or torsion springs, our skilled technicians have the expertise to diagnose and repair any issues to restore your garage door’s functionality. We take pride in our ability to deliver top-notch spring repair services that ensure the safety and convenience of your garage door. Before going into depth about our garage door spring repairs, here is some important information about the difference between extension and torsion spring systems.
Extension springs are commonly found in older models of garage doors and work by extending and contracting to help lift the door. The springs run along the tracks on each side of the garage door and take on much of the door’s weight whenever it is in motion. For this reason, we will be very careful to look out for any signs of fraying so we can be proactive about replacing them. We will find the most durable extension springs possible to meet the needs of your garage door.
Torsion springs are typically used in modern garage door systems and work by using torque to counterbalance the weight of the door. The torsion bar itself is located above the door. Our team is equipped to adjust, lubricate, and repair the torsion springs as necessary. If the damage is particularly excessive, we will take care of replacing them with ones of high-quality material. We will not stop until we know your torsion spring system is back to its usual smooth operation.
Signs That Garage Door Springs Need Repairs
Regardless of the spring system used by your garage door, you should keep your eyes and ears open for the most prominent indications that your springs require repairs. If you’re dealing with springs that are either broken or on the verge of breaking, you’ll notice your garage door moving slowly, operating in an uneven position, or having general trouble opening and closing. Loud noises as well as visible rust, are also warning signs of potential garage door spring issues. If you notice any of these signs, it’s crucial to contact our professionals at The Garage Door Repairman for a thorough inspection and swift repairs.
How to Take Care of Your Garage Door Springs
The good news is that there are ways to be proactive about caring for your garage door springs. Proper maintenance will extend the lifespan of your garage door springs and reduce the chances of dealing with costly repairs and replacements. The simplest maintenance task you can perform yourself is to visually inspect your springs for signs of rust, wear, and tear.
Addressing those signs right away will prevent further damage and functionality problems in the future. Another easy way to care for your garage door springs is to lubricate them every six months. Experts recommend using silicone spray to effectively ensure your springs remain in excellent working condition. As long as you make caring for your springs a part of your garage door maintenance routine, you won’t have to worry about seeking repair services.
