Our garage door spring repair and replacement services apply to both torsion and extension springs, from broken or corroded spring replacement to extended and loose springs, the employees of Flash Garage Door will have your garage door working effectively, efficiently, and most importantly, safely again.
Torsion springs are located either above the opening of the garage door, or occasionally on older homes at the rear of the garage. When these springs are correctly installed, they balance the door. This means that it should take the same amount of pressure to open the garage door, as it does to close it. A properly balanced garage door is easy to lift and has an average lifespan of 7-9 years. Torsion springs typically need to be re-balanced within the first couple of years. If the spring was installed during colder weather, it may need to be rebalanced sooner than if it was installed in warmer weather.
An extension spring system can be found either mounted vertically alongside the opening of your garage door or above the garage door track. An extension spring system has a similar life span as a torsion spring – averaging around 7-9 years. Extension springs often fail, which is different than breaking. When an extension spring system fails, the coils are of the springs are no longer tightly wound, and gaps between the coils become visible. This can be a result of age, poor or lack of maintenance, as well as improper maintenance.
The team at Flash Garage Door Service will help you determine the most affordable, effective, and safe option for your failing springs. Whether it be a repair to the current system or a full replacement, we always have your best interest in mind.
