When the springs in your garage door are dirty, loose, or broken, you must call a professional like Richton Park Garage Doors to service them immediately. Springs are one of the most dangerous parts of your garage and could cause damage to your assets or bodily injury if handled improperly.
The springs counterbalance the weight of the door by releasing stored energy when they are twisted. Because of this stored tension, Richton Park Garage Doors does not recommend trying to fix garage door springs yourself. Once Richton Parks Garage Doors has the green light to service your garage door springs, we will follow these steps:
Our licensed, insured, and bonded technicians use only the latest equipment when fixing garage door springs, which include two 10” vice grips, two ½” x 18” winding bars, an adjustable wrench, sockets, a socket wrench, a ruler, and a file.
We will use a properly fitting winding bar to unwind garage door springs.
Torsion and spring hardware has to be loosened before we can continue. We will turn bolt heads after removing the two secure bolts of the center stationary torsion cone.
Once the old pair of springs have been slid off, we will measure them to ensure the new ones are equal length.
The drum is moved away from the plate, the shaft is pulled out completely, and the new springs are installed.
We will press the opener multiple times to make sure the new garage door springs are operating correctly. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about garage door spring repair. Richton Park Garage Doors is committed to providing professional and affordable garage door services to the residents of this great town.
