Due to the intense pressure your garage door springs are subject to on a daily basis, over time they will inevitably wear out. If one or more of your springs has broken, our local team of professionals can get your door in perfect working order as quickly as possible and with minimum fuss. We can also undertake regular maintenance checks to help prevent future breakdowns.
Repairing Broken Springs
If your springs break, your garage door will not be functional. In order to get your garage door up and running again, our technicians will need to safely secure the door and disconnect both springs. They'll then attach and calibrate a replacement set of springs and ensure they are exerting the correct amount of tension. This will result in a smooth and reliable operation.
Keeping Things Running Smoothly
Due to the nature of their job, garage door springs have a limited lifespan. Regular maintenance however, will help to improve the durability of your springs. Our professionals can apply lubricant to your set of springs to keep them working smoothly and ward off corrosion. They'll also check they're positioned correctly and perform any consequent re-adjustments.
Torsion Versus Extension
Overhead door systems operate using one of two types of springs; torsion and extension. The most common, torsion springs, are both hard-wearing and safe. The second type, extension springs, are similarly durable, less expensive and ideal for garages with limited headspace. They are however considerable dangerous if they snap suddenly.
Leave It To The Experts
Whether you’re using torsion or extension springs, both store tremendous amounts of kinetic energy, required for their task of heavy lifting. Should they break, they can become considerable dangerous with the potential to cause damage to both people and property in the vicinity. For this reason, you should never attempt to service or replace springs yourself. Leave it to the experts!
