Garage Door Springs
One of the most common garage door repairs involves the springs. Regardless of the size or style of your garage door or the kind of springs your door has on it, they all serve the same purpose. Garage door springs are needed to keep your door counterbalanced. If the door is not counterbalanced, it cannot open and close properly and it will be unbalanced. An unbalanced door is a safety hazard and can fall. For that reason, it is imperative that all garage door springs are in properly operating order.
If your garage door has a spring that breaks, the door itself can fall. As you know, overhead garage doors are heavy. A falling door can result in serious injury or cause major property damage. Most residential garage doors have two springs. In that situation, if one spring breaks the other spring can keep the door from falling. In the event one spring breaks, you shouldn’t attempt to operate the garage door. The spring or springs that are left will be holding more weight than usual and the weight will be unevenly shifted.
Commercial garage doors are usually heavier and larger. Because of their size, they usually require four or more garage door springs. It doesn’t matter how many springs a garage door has to counterbalance it. If a spring breaks, you should get immediate help to address the issue and prevent damage or injury. Garage door springs are dangerous, so they should only be handled by a trained technician who can handle the task safely and professionally. Making springs adjustments, replacing or repairing springs or installing springs are all dangerous tasks.
In the event a garage door spring releases prematurely or uncoils without warning, you could suffer serious injury. Many people have been knocked off of ladders by springs. The fall itself can cause major injuries. If you are struck by the spring itself you can suffer broken bones or deep lacerations. Many people have experienced lengthy hospital stays or even been killed in garage door spring related accidents. It isn’t worth the risk. Call on a well trained technician who has been trained how to safely and professionally handle all garage door spring repairs.
Garage doors have either torsion springs or extension springs. While both kinds of springs do the same job, they handle the task differently. Torsion springs are mounted on either side of an anchor bracket just above the center of the garage door. Typically, torsion springs come in one of three sizes with the inside diameters or 1 3/4″, 2″ or 2 1/4″. A torsion spring requires a stationary cone to hold it tightly into the spring anchor bracket. Because the spring anchor bracket is secured tightly to the wall the stationary cone is tight and does not move. The opposite end of the torsion spring has a winding cone, which is used during the installation, adjustment and uninstallation of the spring.
During the installation process of the torsion spring, the spring’s coils are wound tightly to create a lot of torque. At that point, the torque is applied to the shaft, which runs through the center of the torsion spring. End bearing plates hold the shaft ends. Cable drums are located against the bearings. The cable drum has cable wrapped around it. That cable then runs down to the bottom of the garage door, where it is attached to the bottom bracket. In the event the spring becomes loose, the torque can spin the shaft dangerously, resulting in serious injuries.
Extension springs are defined by weight rather than the dimension. The height of the garage door also plays a significant role in the size of spring. Two extension spring systems are found on each side of the garage door. Based on that, each side must be able to lift one-half of the garage door’s weight. An extension spring design involves two pulleys, one which is the stationary pulley which has a cable wrapped around it. The cable then travels to the second pulley, where it is wrapped around it before being connected to the track with a cable clip and S-hook. At that point, the second pulley is connected to the spring with a pulley fork.

We have torsion springs, extension springs, cones, winding bars, lubricant, set screws and anything else that is needed to handle your garage door spring related needs.

You may be surprised when you realize how many different garage doors there are available out there when you the time comes to choose a new garage door. As you shop for a garage door, you want to be certain that you consider all of the different features and options that are available on the market. You then need to compare those options to your personal needs in a garage door so you can get the best equipment to serve you for the longest period of time in the years ahead. During the garage door purchasing process, we want you to consider about more than just what you need today. You need to think about what you will need in a garage door several years ahead. By selecting the right garage door you can get decades, often 20 or 30 years, of quality service.
Several things need to be considered as you purchase a garage door. First, you need to think about how many times everyday the garage door will be opened and closed. Also think about how the garage door will be treated – paying special attention to frequent hits or abuse, the weather at your location and the style and design you want for your garage door. Doors are available in various styles. Examples of styles include rollup garage doors, sectional garage doors and overhead garage doors. All of these different kinds of garage doors have their own advantages as well as disadvantages. Some kinds of garage doors are more suitable in some situations rather than other situations and uses.
If you are concerned about climate control or if you just want to maintain energy efficiency, you will benefit from an insulated garage door. Insulated doors are available in various styles and designs. They are available in residential and commercial designs. Our technicians will show you all the options and help you choose the right insulated door for your situation. When it comes to insulated doors, the choice may not be straightforward because all of the manufacturers have their own versions available.
The leading materials used in garage door construction include wood, aluminum and steel. Wood has been used for construction for hundreds of years. It is attractive as well as strong. The downside to wood is that dampness can cause major damage. When wood is wet, it will expand. After the wood expands, it will start cracking. After frequent dampness, the cracking will worsen and the door will have visible damage. Wood doors will eventually require repairs or replacement. Midlothian and the surrounding communities are in the humid subtropical region, so the door will be subjected to frequent dampness and rains. For that reason, we do not highly recommend wood garage doors to clients in the area.
When it comes to strength, the strongest garage door available is the steel back garage door. While steel can be damaged, it has the ability to withstand much more abuse than any other garage door. Steel back doors are excellent choices for those places where the door will be hit by pallet jacks, trucks and other equipment repeatedly day after day. Our technicians will definitely recommend steel doors for many commercial settings, such as truck terminals, warehouses and factories. They can also be used in residential settings.
In those situations when a standard garage door is sufficient, our technicians will probably recommend that you go with the basic aluminum garage door. Aluminum is strong and dependable and it is also lightweight, which is beneficial. With that being said, it is an excellent choice for most residential situations and many commercial sites as well. The downside to aluminum is that it will dent or bend much easier than other metals. Aluminum is also very affordable and dependable. You can also select an aluminum door from many different styles and designs.
There are also many special features or options that are available for your garage door creation. If you want to custom design a garage door, you can rely on our experts to help you all throughout the ordering process. We will assist you as you create the custom designed door that you need so you can have a perfect garage door that is unique and attractive. With the proper design help, you can design a door that reflects your style as well as your personality. You can even decide to add inserts that have special designs or monograms. Another option is adding windows to make your door stand out from the others in the neighborhood.
Garage Door Maintenance
During maintenance, the technician will also inspect the door’s cables; its tracks then look at the sections or panels for any damage. At that point, he will go over every part of the door with a fine tooth comb to ensure that your door is providing optimal performance and doing so in a safe and efficient manner. The maintenance visit also includes the technician checking out the garage door opener. After he opens and closes the door a few times, as he is carefully monitoring its performance, he will make sure the door is operating evenly. He also checks to confirm that your garage door is not make any loud noises during the operation process. If there is a beeping sound or flashing light on the opener, that can also be addressed during the maintenance visit.
All of the various parts of the garage door opener are inspected thoroughly. During the process, the technician will look at all of the opener’s gears, the belt and belt drive, the pulley, the gear sprocket assembly and scan over the opener’s motor. The batteries are replaced in the remote controls that operate the opener. Battery backup is also tested to make sure that it will open in the event there is a power outage. With battery backup, your garage door will properly operate the door when and if the power goes off. If it is needed at this time, we can replace the battery in the battery backup.
