Garage Door Repairs
Nobody does repairs better!
We perform garage door repairs of all kinds. Many repairs start as small problems which can be handled by regular professional garage maintenance. It’s only later through lack of maintenance that they become repair issues which require immediate attention. An example is a noisy garage door, often resolved by regular maintenance. Eventually, the hinges or rollers may need to be replaced.
Erratic door movement or even failure of a garage door to open or close, jerking, or shrieking when it opens and closes are other issues we address. The remote control may need to be repaired or replaced. Or, the problem might be caused by another issue.
Another common repair is worn out or even broken torsion springs, described in detail in the next section.
Garage door panel replacement is available if a garage panel become damaged. Panel damage is much more common than you’d think because most garages have become the primary entry route for the family into the home.
Other repairs we perform are repair or replacement of garage door cables and pulleys.
Broken Spring Replacement
Nothing in life lasts forever, including your garage door springs. In fact, they are generally only good for 10,000 cycles. How long is that? That’s a complicated question to answer. Determining just how long 10,000 cycles will last you depends on your and your family’s daily usage.
One cycle is expended each time you open and close your garage door. For example, let’s say that you are the only one in your family to use the garage door, and that you operate it in the morning to go to work and again at the end of the day when returning home. That counts as two cycles.
If you have children that leave and come in through the garage door via a wireless keypad, you’ve just expended two more cycles. That’s a total of four. Is there a second driver who uses the garage? Now you’re up to six cycles per day. See how easy it is to go through 10,000 cycles?
If you use your garage door:
2 times per day, you can expect your springs to last 14 years. *
4 times per day, you can expect your springs to last 7 years. *
6 times per day, you can expect your springs to last 5 years. *
8 times per day, you can expect your springs to last 3 years. *
No matter your situation, garage door springs are vital to ensuring your door remains functional, and to keeping you and your property safe from harm/damage. It is for this reason that broken garage door springs must be replaced by a professional garage door technician promptly. Until that happens, you should halt all further use of the door, because nothing is supporting it from falling.
The replacement of broken garage door springs – whether torsion or extension – is a complicated task. One that is NOT do-it-yourself friendly! Without the proper expertise or tools, you run the risk of property damage or worse yet, personal injury to you or your loved ones. Don’t take those risks!
