When you own a home, it seems that maintenance and necessary repairs pop up at the most inconvenient times. Getting ready to leave for an important appointment only to discover that your car is stuck inside the garage because your garage door won’t open is never a welcome problem. Don’t spend even second worrying and wondering what to do. You know what to do – Call a service technician who is able to come to you quickly to provide you with the necessary garage door spring replacement and get you on your way with the rest of your plans for the day.
Before you call for service, it is important to know whether or not the garage door repair company you call is able to service the type of springs you have. The first step to properly repairing or replacing your garage door springs is knowing what kind of spring system you have. There are two main spring systems – torsion springs and extension springs.
Torsion Springs – Torsion springs are located above the opening of the door with springs that have been slid onto a bar.
Extension Springs – Extension springs are found alongside the opening of the garage door.
Millennium Locksmith technicians are certified repair service experts who are able to replace both torsion and extension garage door springs.
Most garage doors are designed with two springs that were originally installed at the same time. Therefore, when one spring breaks, the second spring is most likely ready to break as well. If your door has two springs, our technician will probably recommend that both springs be replaced. Doing so will save you future inconvenience and from the risk of damaging your garage door opener with uneven wear and tear.
If the wrong springs are installed, it will damage your garage door system and add extra stress to the garage door opener. Garage doors come in a variety of weights and sizes and each one requires the proper spring to make sure the door is properly balanced. Our technicians install the right springs for your door’s weight and then test and check their work by performing balance tests before they leave.
Consider that when a spring wears out, the rest of the door’s hardware may be in danger as well. Every time our experts repair a garage door spring, we include a free safety inspection to ensure all of the moving parts and door hardware are in working order.
Some garage door spring repair companies use springs that are cheaper in cost and in durability, leaving them to break quickly. The experts at Millennium Locksmith, on the other hand, provide you with quality parts at a price you can afford, offering both standard and high-cycle springs. Standard springs have an expected lifespan of between 3 to 5 years while high-cycle springs often last up to ten times as long. Garage door springs are rated by an estimated number of cycles with one complete cycle counted each time your garage door goes up and down.
