Garage Door Springs
Contact Us for Garage Door Springs and Garage Door Spring Replacement
Some of the most important parts on your garage door are the garage door springs. The springs are utilized in the opening and closing function of the door, and they help offset gravity's pull to the extent that motorized openers (as well as the people who operate them) can handle the weight of the door.
There are two major types of garage door springs. Torsion springs are typically located above the door and provide the balance to allow the door to open and close with roughly the same amount of effort. Extension springs are above the track and help pull the garage door up so that it will open properly.
Garage Door Spring Repair
Most of the time, repair is not an option when it comes to garage door springs. Typically, they function as they were intended unless they break. A broken garage door should not be repaired; instead, it should be replaced. During routine garage door maintenance, it's always a good idea to inspect the garage door springs to make sure they haven't moved or been compromised in any way.
Garage Door Spring Replacement
When a garage door spring breaks, replacement is the best course of action. One call to the Overhead Door Company of Lexington, and we'll send out a technician who can replace your spring for you. Once the spring is replaced, your door will typically return to normal functionality.
Springs don't last forever. The average garage door spring will perhaps last 10,000 cycles, which means less than 10 years to most users. That means you can expect to need garage door spring replacement periodically during the course of your garage door's life span.
