Garage Door Spring Repair
The spring is a critical component of your garage door. It holds up a several-hundred-pound door, assists the automatic opener with lifting and lowering the door, and makes it possible to open and close the door manually when detached from the opener. When it breaks, your garage door is inoperable until it’s repaired. That’s why a broken garage door spring is usually a same-day or even emergency repair scenario if you’re stuck in your garage.
We repair, replace, install, and maintain all types of garage door springs, including:
Torsion Springs – The most common garage door springs, torsion springs are mounted on the back wall of your garage. They rotate and use torque to lift and lower a garage door. They are more expensive than extension springs, but they also last longer and are safer.
Extension Springs – The more affordable option, extension springs are mounted on the upper walls to the side of the door. They work by extending and contracting to lift and lower the door. Because of the nature of extension springs, they must be installed with a safety cable to prevent them from flying off the wall if they break. Extension springs are ideal when there is little headroom to install rear torsion springs.
If your springs break and you’re stuck in your garage, call 911 Garage Door Repair at (844) 427-2439 day or night for emergency repair service.
