Depending on the model of your garage door the spring installed will either be torsion or extension.
Torsion Springs are normally located right above your garage door opening with springs sliding onto a bar. At one end of the spring is the winding cone that is fastened to the shaft with screws. At the other end of the spring is the stationary cone which is fastened to the spring anchor bracket. The spring anchor bracket is fastened to the header.
Extension springs are located alongside the garage doors opening. These are visible on each side over the tracks that guide your garage door upward. When the lifting function of your garage door is turned on, the coils extend. This movement creates a force of counterbalance that helps to bear the heavy weight of your garage door.
Whichever spring your garage door may use, they play a vital role in the operation of your garage door and therefore are under a high amount of pressure. Because of this, spring repair is a job solely for technicians trained in the area.
We highly recommend you call a professional when you begin to notice any loss of functionality in your garage door because here at ADP Garage Door Repair, we are fully trained to service both so that we leave you with a fully functioning garage door.
Our professional garage door technicians deal with two types of spring extension systems, too. Second, sectional garage doors have extension springs that open straight up and curl overhead in four or five parts. Such springs are placed above the horizontal track from the ceiling support, which extend as the door closes towards the opening.
This extension system uses pulleys to route a cable towards the spring from each side of the door and back to the line. When the door closes, the springs work toward opening the door. The second type of spring extension is used on single-piece garage doors. A one-piece door swings outward as it rolls up and overhead.
On either side of the garage door opening, about waist high, extension springs are mounted to a lever and bracket system that extends the springs toward the ceiling door closes. This type of system is dangerous, which is why manufactured. If a one-piece garage door with a broken extension spring, we recommend door replacement for safety.
Most garage doors are equipped with two springs at the same time. When one spring breaks, it puts the life expectancy of the second spring at a low. Our technicians at ADP Garage Door Repair recommend replacing both springs when one loses its functionality to save you from any future inconvenience.
After inspection and examination of your residential or commercial garage door, our technicians will immediately replace the springs that are broken or nonfunctional. ADP Garage Door Repair can also provide replacements or any service necessary for corrosion-free springs if your commercial or residential garage door requires them.
Our technicians know exactly what types of springs suit which type of garage door which is due to their vast experience.
It’s important to consider springs coated with a powder to prevent corrosion. Springs can corrode in certain climates, putting mechanisms in danger for sudden failure. Our springs are lubricated to stop corrosion, offering superior resistance to wreck caused by corrosion, erosion, and friction.
Our highly skilled team will take all of the required safety precautions throughout the inspection and replacement procedure.
