Because we handle so many garage door spring repair calls, we are the leading company for garage door repairs and replacement parts in Mesa . Many of our clients call requesting that we come and check their opener motors, not knowing that broken door springs prevent door function completely. One little known fact about overhead door springs is that they do all the heavy lifting of your garage door. Another is that the typical Arizona homeowner opens and closes their garage door 1500 times annually. Over time, springs lose their strength and need replacing.
The average garage door weighs approximately 300lbs, but can be as heavy as 1000lbs. Because your garage door springs do most of the hard lifting, many manufacturers give their springs an average lifespan of 10,000 uses. We like to exceed expectations and provide our clients with replacement springs that calculate out to 25,000 – 65,000 per lifecycle. Of course, these numbers will fluctuate depending on wire size selected and other factors. We keep all our top oil tempered springs in stock.
Garage Door Torsion Springs
There are two types of springs used in garage doors. The first are torsion springs which are usually located on the wall above each garage door. Because overhead door springs are under tremendous amounts of tension, these can be dangerous to handle by those without experience. Many homeowners believe they can address their tension issues without professional help, which can have costly results. Springs must be inspected and replaced by trained garage door technicians familiar with correct installation.
Garage Door Extension Spring Replacement
The second type of springs are extension springs. These are located on either side of the door tracks, and attached to the pulley system. These provide counter balance for your garage door as it opens and closes, keeping the movement smooth and quiet. When these springs begin to deteriorate, homeowners may notice that function is impaired and becomes very noisy. When any of these springs break completely, your door will not function at all. Sometimes, just a quick visual inspection can let you know if your springs are the cause of your issues.
Not all garage door springs are created equal, and there is not one universal size for all doors. Depending on the weight and style of your garage door, the springs will vary in length and wire size.
