garage door spring repair
garage door spring types
Torsion springs are the springs attached to the wall on the side of the garage door. They expand and twist to operate the door. Torsion springs carry a huge amount of energy; they can be very dangerous and you don’t want to try fixing them yourself. You want to call a professional to handle any job that deals with torsion springs. These springs are designed to last around seven to ten years, or ten-thousand cycles. They can break with a bang, but the professionals at Direct Service Overhead Garage Door Company can get them safely working again in a flash.
Extension springs are less expensive than torsion springs. They’re designed to last seven to twelve years or eight thousand to fifteen-thousand cycles. They’re the long, shiny springs just above the garage door’s horizontal track on a single rod. These springs have safety cables keeping them in place because they have more exposed parts. When they do break, our technicians know exactly how to fix them.
can i replace my door springs on my own?
The answer to that question depends on your confidence and the type of springs that you have. If you are proficient with DIYs, and you have a lot of time to spare, then you are lucky! Maybe, you can handle these things by yourself. However, for a great number of people, replacing their own garage door springs is a job that they would rather not waste time on.
There will always be a possibility that you will not do everything right. Or maybe you will not get to install the springs properly or buy the right ones online. When this happens, it will cause a lot of safety hazards when you use the garage door. Either way, deciding to repair your garage door on your own can save you money, but you need to be certain that you are fully aware of what you will be doing, or else you will have to spend a lot more time and money on correcting your mistake.
