The springs on your garage door are not only essential to a properly functioning garage door, they also ensure the integrity and safety of your door. The springs balance, maintain, and control the weight of your door. No matter what material your garage door is made out of, it weighs a great deal. This is why springs, and safety cables, exist. In the event that one of springs snap, your door can cause extensive damage to your property, severe personal injury, or possibly death.
We don’t recommend an inexperienced person to repair or replace the safety cables or springs of your garage door, given their importance to the safe functioning of your door. PS Garage Door is trained to repair springs or safety cables. We are happy to handle this task for you to ensure your peace of mind! Our #1 priority is your safety.
Waiting to have necessary repairs completed on your garage doors, like spring and cable replacement, can result in further damage, future costs, and injury. Always have your springs replaced as a set, if your garage door features multiple springs. Once one spring breaks or malfunctions, the other is not far behind. New springs also make your door function better and operate smoother. Often times we can replace your springs on the same day we come out to inspect your garage door! Fast and easy!
There are two basic types of garage door springs: torsion springs and extension springs. PS Garage Door in Miami is knowledgeable in the replacement of both types of springs for both residential and commercial properties. Extension springs extend as they balance a moving door and torsion springs are turned. One cycle in the life of a garage door springs means it has been opened and closed once.
Average torsion springs generally function for about 15,000 to 20,000 cycles. This is why they tend to be the more expensive version of the two. Extension springs only last approximately 10,000 cycles. At the lower end of the scale, torsion springs are good for around 10 ½ years, but up to 14 years. Extension springs usually last about 10 years. Both estimates are based upon the garage door being opened and closed 4 times each day.
The expert team at PS Garage Door is skilled in converting your garage door from a one spring operation to two springs. There are a number of reasons why homeowners choose to do this. One reason is because two springs can end up being cheaper in the long run. It also offers homeowners a bit more choice when deciding between the life cycle of their door.
