Benefits of installing a garage door torsion spring with a repair service

The torsion spring plays a pivotal role in the functioning of your garage door system. It acts as a counterbalance, easing the door’s weight and enabling smooth operation. A well-functioning torsion spring makes the door effortless to open and close, ensuring optimal performance.

  • Excessive stress on the garage door opener – When the torsion spring isn’t functioning correctly, the garage door opener has to exert more effort to operate the door, reducing its longevity.
  • Safety risks – A faulty torsion spring makes the door cumbersome and unpredictable, posing a safety risk to individuals entering or exiting the garage.
  • Risk of additional damage – A compromised torsion spring accelerates the wear and tear of other parts in the garage door system, resulting in potentially expensive future repairs.

While some homeowners opt to replace a garage door torsion spring themselves, it’s usually advisable to enlist the services of a professional garage door repair company. Here are some key advantages of taking this route:

  • Safety – Torsion springs are under significant tension, and improper handling is hazardous. Garage Door Repair technicians have the training and equipment to safely remove, replace, and adjust torsion springs, minimizing the risk of injury.
  • Expertise – Garage door repair professionals have extensive experience working with various garage door systems and components. They understand the intricacies of torsion spring installation and ensure the job is done correctly, preventing future issues.
  • Proper tools and equipment – Replacing a torsion spring requires specialized tools and equipment that many homeowners may need access to. Repair technicians have the tools required to do the job efficiently and effectively.
  • Warranty coverage – Many garage door repair services offer warranties on their work, giving you peace of mind and protection in case any issues arise.
  • Time savings – Replacing a torsion spring on your own is time-consuming and frustrating, especially if you need to familiarise yourself with the process. A repair service completes the job quickly and efficiently, minimizing the disruption to your daily routine.

Process of installing a garage door torsion spring

The technician will first inspect your garage door system to assess the condition of the torsion spring and determine if replacement is necessary. If a replacement is needed, the technician will select the appropriate torsion spring based on the size, weight, and model of your garage door. The technician will carefully disconnect the garage door from the opener and secure it in the closed position to ensure safety during the repair. The technician will use specialized tools to safely remove the old torsion spring and release the tension. The new torsion spring will be installed, with the technician ensuring proper alignment and tension. Once the repair is complete, the technician will clean up the work area and reconnect the garage door to the opener.
