Garage Door Spring Repair
Broken springs are one of the most common problems with garage door systems. The springs are designed to make your door lighter and easier to operate. Most springs are good for over 10,000 open/closes, however eventually they break. Most garage doors weigh between 100 and 200 lbs so when these garage door springs break it makes it very difficult to open and close your door.
Luckily, we specialize in all types of garage door spring repair. We will fix them, and fix them right so you won’t have any more problems throughout the life-spann of the spring.
The torsion spring is the part of the garage door that bends when the door is opened and closed. These are very sturdy pieces of steel, however after so many opens and closes, the metal eventually will break. Oddly, torsion springs are fickle and some break quickly while others last a long time. Temperature is often the cause of broken torsion springs. In Austin, the weather can easily have a 50 degree swing overnight. We get a lot of calls when we have a very hot day and then the temperature drops significantly overnight.
When you have a torsion spring break, you need it repaired. You should not try to operate the door when you have broken springs. It can be dangerous to the motor, and you could cause further damage.
