Garage Door Spring Replacement

Every homeowner can relate to how life’s inconveniences are thrown at you at the worst possible times. The last thing you want to happen is have your car stuck in the garage when you need it most, especially when it’s only been a couple months, weeks, or even days after your last garage door repair! That’s why Mr. Garage Door leads by example and follows the industry’s best practices in order to make the best recommendation to homeowners each time we step foot in a garage.

Torsion Garage Door Springs Repair

Torsion springs are located above the opening of your door with springs slid onto a bar. Extension spring systems can be found alongside the opening of the door. It’s important to know whether or not a garage door company provides service for your needs. Certified technicians are fully equipped to work on torsion and extension spring systems.

Most garage doors have two springs installed at the same time, when one breaks it’s safe to say the second spring’s life expectancy has just about expired. In order to save you from future inconvenience, unsafe garage door practices, and damaging your garage door opener, Mr. Garage Door will usually recommend to replace both springs. If you’ve had the same tires on your car for a while and one blows out while you’re driving, wouldn’t you replace them both? It’s extremely important to properly maintain equipment such as garage doors and cars.

Residential springs are rated for 10,000 cycles of operation. The cycle life is a rating, not a guarantee. Factors such as temperature change and extra weight added to the door also effects the life cycle of a spring. If your door has two springs and one breaks, we usually recommend that you replace both because the other spring is probably at the end of its cycle. For very high use doors it is possible to order springs with a higher cycle rating. We strongly suggest against replacing your own springs, cables or bottom brackets. All of these items are under extreme tension and can cause serious injury or death. See our specials for savings on garage door spring repair.
