Garage Door SpringsBack To Our Services
Your garage doors springs are responsible for keeping your door properly aligned and operating safely by ensuring that it is secured correctly. They do, unfortunately, have a lifespan and require replacements or repairs from time to time. This lifespan is also affected by the stress of your springs’ task, the weather and even what other metals they come into contact with. So when your springs start to show signs of failure, it is always wise to have them seen to by a technician as soon as possible.
Why you may need spring repairs
Both extension and torsion coil springs must operate under immense pressure as they store energy to correctly balance and leverage your heavy door. This may cause distortions in their structure and fine cracks which should be taken as a sign of their soon-to-come failure. Since two springs are required to keep your door aligned, simply relying on a single working one after the other has failed will only lead to further damages in the near future.
Rust and corrosion
Of course old age isn’t the only cause for broken garage door springs. Weather permitting, a damp or coastal climate can result in the onset of rust on your springs, which will quickly weaken their integrity and undermine their effectiveness and safety. Galvanic corrosion similarly destroys your springs and is caused when they come into contact with other electrified metals, making this a common occurrence in automatic doors. Replacing your springs with those that are galvanized or oil tempered is a great way to ensure that this doesn’t happen.
