Why do garage door springs break?
Your garage door relies on heavy-duty springs to operate. There are two different types: extension springs mounted on either side of the track, or torsion springs mounted above the door in a steel shaft. Most garage door manufacturers use torsion springs, but no matter which type you have, they handle most of the heavy lifting. Precision Garage Door technicians know how to replace both types.
Since garage door springs do most of the work when it comes to opening and closing, it’s normal for them to get worn out over time. Aside from normal wear and tear, there are a few reasons your garage door springs could break, including:
- Extremely hot or cold temperatures
- Rust buildup, which is often caused by excess moisture or improper lubrication
- An imbalance in the door
- A different component breaking, which makes the springs work harder than they should
- Improper installation
Professional Garage Door Spring Repair & Replacement
You should never attempt to replace your garage door springs yourself. Garage doors are a home’s largest, heaviest moving object. This means that not only are they tough to lift, but they may also come falling down with a lot of force if installed incorrectly. For your safety, garage door spring repair & replacement should be undertaken only by a qualified Precision Garage Door technician.
Our techs know exactly what it takes to keep your garage door operating safely. We follow several steps to make sure your spring replacement gets done right on the first visit.
Saving You From
When one spring breaks, it’s safe to assume that the second spring will follow shortly after. Relying on one new spring to do the lifting will wear it down prematurely. A garage door is Precision technicians will normally recommend replacing both garage door springs to save you from any future complications or damaged components.
Picking the Right Spring for You
Garage doors come in varying sizes and weights, and each one fits a different type of spring. If someone installs the wrong type, your garage door will never be properly balanced, extra strain on the other components. We make certain that the springs we install are a perfect fit for your door and confirm it with a balance test.
Making Sure Your Garage Door is Safe
Before we get started on your broken spring replacement, we conduct a complimentary safety inspection to make sure there aren’t any additional damaged components. This helps us find out whether broken springs are actually the problem, make sure your door meets the required safety standards, and find any issues that may arise in the future.
Longer Lasting, Corrosion-Resistant Springs
In a 72-hour salt spray test performed by a third-party research company, only Precision’s Green Powder Coated Springs proved to be 100 percent resistant to corrosion. Precision installs a weather-resistant powder-coated spring to prevent corrosion and friction. We believe in our springs, so we put our name on them and we back them up with the industry’s best warranty.
