Spring into Action

Garage Door Spring Repair

broken springs of a garage door

Safety is part of what makes a home a Home. Quality home security starts with a strong garage and quality springs to support it. Garage door springs are the systems that support the weight of the door. They have a pretty heavy job, to say the least. Now, consider that the average person opens and closes their garage 1500 times per year; lifting that much weight, day after day, can wear down your springs over time.

That’s why it’s crucial to maintain and fix your springs before a major malfunction happens.

Broken Garage Door Springs

A garage with a broken spring is the most common problem faced by owners.

Over time, the spring loses its tension and falls apart. With maintenance and care, you can make it last longer, but nothing lasts forever. When a spring breaks, the door will become too heavy for anyone to lift and open. This can be extremely inconvenient if your car is trapped inside and you need to go to work.

That’s why you need to contact someone that knows how to solve this problem quickly and efficiently.

The Difference Between Garage Door Springs

There are two systems which are used to open and close your garage door by offsetting weight through force and both of them are dependent on garage door springs.

Garage Door Torsion Spring

These are the most common springs that you will encounter in any residential neighborhood. They are horizontal in nature and stand above your garage door, with the cables attached to the bottom corners of the door. This allows the coiled spring to apply pressure when being wound up or unwound.

Garage Door Extension Spring

Not as common as the torsion springs – the extension spring relies on a pulley-like system, where the extension spring is attached to what is called a Clevis pulley, which in turn is attached to a stud pulley that moves the garage door up and down the garage door track.

When you come to US Garage Door Heroes, you know you’re getting quality steel springs that lasts.

We are stocked with springs of all sizes that work perfectly with both manual and automatic garages. Consider the weight of the average garage door. One issue that arises often is an off-balance door. This puts extra stress on the springs and can wear them down even faster; you could be looking at constant and costly replacements. That’s why it helps to have an experienced repairman at your side to investigate the issue and see if there’s something deeper. Catching an issue early could save you thousands.

Maintaining Your Garage Door Springs

  • Lubricate the pulleys on extension-spring openers & the bearings on torsion spring openers.
  • Wipe a little oil on the torsion spring if it is rusty.
  • Wipe clean, and then apply a light oil.
  • Remove any rust with steel wool.

Warning: Replacing or repairing your garage door springs is extremely dangerous. The experts US Garage Door Heroes warn you not to do this yourself.

He replaced both springs, rebalanced / leveled and salvaged the track by tideously working it back in line and did not charge any extra. Class act technition and company. Thanks!
