There are two main types of garage door springs that are being used today, and our technicians specialize in handling both of them. No matter what type of task you need us to complete, you can rest assured that we'll take care of it quickly and effectively.
The Extension Type
These springs operate by extending and contracting in order to lift the door off the ground and to bring it back down. Because of this, they are far more susceptible to wear and tear than their counterparts, and are considered the more dangerous of the two. They are installed in a pair, each on a different side of the door, stretching towards the inside of your garage, parallel to the ceiling.
The Torsion Type
Springs of this type are considered the safer option, and they are usually reserved for heavier doors. These components operate by twisting and unwinding, and only a single unit is usually installed, above the door parallel to its length. The torsion spring is fitted along a shaft that turns and twists the coils in order to open the door. The nature of their action makes them more durable, and therefore, less likely to break.
Regular Spring Maintenance
Aside from replacing your springs when they break, our technician can also regularly check on their condition and perform a few procedures that will ensure their smooth and safe operation. We'll lubricate their coils and make sure their tension is well adjusted. If we find that they're getting too worse for wear, we'll replace them on the spot.
