No type of spring related problem is too complex for our team to handle. Since these components are integral to the operation of your garage door, they must be at an excellent condition at all times. We can make sure of that.
Spring Maintenance is Important
The best way to ensure your springs remain functional and safe to use is with regular lubrication and adjustment. This will make their operation smooth and efficient, and will prevent your door from getting unbalanced. If, during our maintenance appointments, our experts will discover that your springs are getting worn out, we'll replace them on the spot, thus preventing a very dangerous accident.
The Two Main Types
While all garage door springs serve a similar purpose, there are two different types of them. Torsion springs operate by twisting and unwinding in order to support the weight of the door panels. The nature of their operation makes them more durable, and therefore more capable of bearing heavier weights. They are also considered the safer option, as they are less likely to go whipping around your garage when they break. Extension springs, on the other hand, contract and stretch in order to counterbalance the door's weight. They are the older of the two types, and are considered the more dangerous option to use. Regardless of which type you have, count on our technicians for any broken spring repair you may need.
Professional Assistance is a Must
