Home Repair Services: Garage Spring Replacement
Imagine how tired you’d be if you had to lift a door that weighs about 300 pounds multiple time a day. This is exactly what a garage door spring does for you.
It handles the heavy lifting of your garage door. Garage door springs often become stretched due to the pressure required to hold the door.
They eventually get loose as you continue to open and close your door, and will need to be replaced. This job should only be handled by a professional.
Garage springs can cause injury or grievous harm because of the pressure they’re under.
You’ll need a garage spring replacement company with a reputation for excellence like Ex-Cello Overhead Door for a garage spring replacement.
Here is the Garage Door Spring System
Torsion springs are those garage door springs that are attached to a metal shaft hanging above the garage door. A torsion spring winds and unwinds as you open and close the door.
Torsion springs also come in two kinds, oil tempered and galvanized. Oil tempered torsion springs are the recommended torsion springs. With oil torsion springs and proper maintenance, you can be sure of years of dependable use.
This particular spring pulls on cables to counterbalance the garage door. They are usually mounted above the horizontal tracks on both sides of the garage door, so they can balance the door when it retracts and stretches.
The garage door brackets located at the bottom half of the door is another component of the garage door spring system. These are constantly under tension, which is why they should only be adjusted by a garage door expert.
Safety containment is an essential requirement for every garage door. Make sure your garage has adequate safety containment. Springs should be enclosed in a metal tube so as to prevent them from causing damage if they happen to break or a safety cable could be run through the extension springs.
Remember, it contains a spring, so you’ll want to be careful in case it breaks.
How to Handle a Broken Spring
The first thing you should do if you notice that your garage door spring is broken, is move your car from the garage. You should have one of those emergency release cords, so if your door breaks you can lift the door manually with it. It is usually located above the door and is red.
