There are two types of springs present in garage doors: the extension spring and the torsion spring. The springs that have a pulley and cable attached to them and run along the overhead door track are the extension springs. Torsion springs are the ones that are mounted over the door and have a long shaft that goes through them with a wheel for the cable on each end. We at Greensboro Garage Doors offer torsion spring replacement as well as extension spring repairs for both residential garage doors and commercial garage doors.
It is worth noting that repairing springs on garage doors can be really dangerous and must be done by a trained professional. Please note with a lot of caution that an attempt to replace or fix these springs by an someone who has little or no knowledge about them may result in adverse injury or in some extreme cases, death. The springs produce a lot of energy and are usually under extreme tension and should be handled with utmost care by a professional.
In order to avoid such kinds of injuries or deaths, call our team of experts to handle and repair anything to do with springs. What more, our technicians will make sure that the springs are properly fixed and that the garage door works efficiently. In the event that your garage door is either hard to open or opens too easily, it could be because the springs are either too tight or too loose. You may need to adjust the torsion springs accordingly.
We also offer spring adjustment services to make sure they are adjusted properly alongside lubricating parts of your garage door that need it. We are available 24/7 and are always at your service.
