Garage Door Repairs
Broken springs are the most common repair on a garage door. If your door won’t budge, even if you pull the release and try to lift the door manually, odds are you have a broken spring. Do not try to open or close the door, as you will only cause further damage. You never want to attempt to work on springs yourself, always call a professional. The extreme tension on the spring is what makes your door feel light when the door is properly balanced and the springs are doing their jobs. Most people don’t realize just how heavy the door is until a spring breaks. Over time, due to constant use, springs get brittle and eventually wear out. You should always replace both springs being that they wear out at the same rate, so if one breaks, chances are the other is not too far behind. By only replacing one spring, you are putting more tension on the new spring causing it to wear faster than normal. Quality Garage Doors arrives with every size of springs needed for any type of door.
Cables are attached to the bottom of the door on each side and are part of the torsion system. They not only play a part in lifting the door, but because they are under tension, they keep the door level. Often times when a cable breaks, you will have a door off track. This is a door sitting sideways in the door opening. Damage can vary depending on where the door was when the cable broke. We use heavy hardware cables to increase the lifetime of the cable. Our technicians are ready to help if you ever have a cable break.
