Garage door springs are a vital part of your garage door system. Without springs, you wouldn’t be able to stay safe and dry in the comfort of your vehicle. You’d have to get out and manually open your garage door, regardless of the time of day or weather conditions. That doesn’t sound like fun to us! As is the case with most mechanical components, garage door springs are subject to the wear and tear that comes with everyday use. The manufacturers design springs to last for a certain number of cycles. A cycle consists of one open and one close. The majority of springs are rated for 10,000 cycles, though some heavy-duty springs are rated for as many as 60,000 cycles. If you have a torsion spring system, there are also cables involved and they’re subject to wear and tear, too. Many people only notice modern conveniences, such as remote control garage doors, when they’re not working properly. We’re like that with the coffee maker at the office! It’s always there and only takes a push of the button before delivering deliciousness. Let it not work though and we instantly take notice. The same can happen with garage door springs. Elite Door System’s highly trained, experienced technicians can spot the signs that indicate your door springs may be close to the end of their useful life. Door springs are one of the most dangerous components of your garage system, in addition to being one of the most important ones. Garage door springs are under extreme tension and only professionals should do the repairs. The danger of personal injury and property damage if garage door springs aren’t handled properly is real. In fact, many manufacturers won’t even sell the parts for such repairs to anyone other than a qualified professional for this very reason. If your springs are near the end of their useful life, they’re also near the end of safe operating status. The only option is replacing them. Some systems only have one spring while others have two. If one of your springs is bad but the other is still good, it’s necessary to replace them both at the same time. Otherwise, you risk an imbalance in the smoothness of operation. The cables on torsion spring systems should be replaced at the same time as the springs to ensure peak operating conditions.

Broken Garage Door Spring We all know that things don’t always go as planned, but no homeowner wants to deal with their car being trapped in the garage due to a broken spring. When a garage door spring breaks, the best choice is to call Southwest Garage Doors immediately. As the leading experts in Phoenix for garage door torsion spring repair services, we ensure quality repairs so your life can get back to normal. What is a garage door spring? As the most important part of your garage door, springs commonly break or get out-of-balance due to repeated use. Similar to a car, garage doors experience wear-and-tear and need to be re-tightened and maintained every 2-3 years by a trained professional. The spring acts as a counterbalance for the entire garage door. When it breaks, it can easily fall and cause serious harm. If you know your spring is broken, the door needs to remain shut and unused until a professional replaces the component. While not immediately dangerous, garage door springs that are out of balance can cause premature wear to your garage opener and other key features. Broken springs can also lead to more maintenance and repairs down the road. The first step in repairing your garage door springs is understanding which type of spring system you have. The three spring types are torsion springs, extension springs, and Wayne Dalton Torque Master. Torsion Springs Torsion springs are a counterbalance system that consists of one or two tightly wound springs on a steel shaft with a cable drum at each end. Located above the opening of your door, these springs are commonly made of galvanized or oil-tempered steel. Garage Door Spring Repair Galena offers garage door spring repair service for torsion springs with oil-tempered material for longevity between services. We formulate our Holmes springs to be at least 20,000-25,000 cycles to ensure your door springs are long-lasting and durable. Extension Springs While we do not replace extension springs due to the risk of injury, they are located alongside the door opening and are based on resistance. As more force is used to pull out, the spring expands. Wayne Dalton Torque Master Torque Master Systems are a re-design of the standard torsion style spring assembly and housed in a metal tub. Although we do not repair these systems, we will convert it to the proven torsion system instead. When springs break within the Wayne Dalton, it’s unnoticeable until damage occurs. To avoid further inconvenience, we recommend replacing both springs at the same time, regardless if only one broken. This technique will help keep your garage door safe and long-lasting.
