Our Main Practices

Your garage door spring is a very important part of its opening mechanism. A garage door opener contains a variety of small, complex parts. These parts fit together to allow the door to open or close. The springs, in particular, are often subject to considerable pressure and torsion. As a result, garage door springs may break or get damaged due to wear and tear.

Garage doors are very heavy, and this can make them dangerous. If you notice any problems opening or closing your door, you should refrain from using it until a professional has inspected it. Problems with the door may indicate that the opening mechanism is broken or faulty. If you continue to use the door, it may open or close unexpectedly, and this can be dangerous for anybody in the vicinity. Keep yourself and others safe and call a professional to come and have a look at the door.

We, at King Garage Door Repair have developed a number of best practice rules and guidelines for garage door spring repair. This helps our team to work as safely as efficiently on your garage door. Also, it helps us ensure that our work is consistent. Our customers know to expect a safe and professional service with us. 

Replacing Both Springs
When someone from our team comes to inspect your garage door, the first thing they check is whether your door has one or two springs. The technician also inspects the type of springs you have. This influences the way we work and how we should ideally repair your door. Fixing a door that has two extension springs is different from a door with just one torsion spring, for example. If you have two extension springs, we always make sure to replace both at the same time. This is vital to prevent the other spring from falling off its track. Garage door springs are subject to considerable pressure, and they can lose some of their strength and give over time. If we only replace one spring, the other spring might be weaker than the other. Having mismatched springs can result in the door opening unevenly, and it might also force the weaker spring off its track.
Using the Right Springs
King Garage Door Repair’s team works exclusively with reputable brands. We only use springs that are built to last and made of strong materials. The springs we use have been tested to endure over 10,000 opening cycles once installed.
Safety Inspection
Keeping you and our team safe is one of our greatest priorities. As such, our technicians always perform a thorough safety inspection on your garage door before they start any repair or maintenance work. This helps them to check that all the parts on your door are in good working condition. If our technicians notice any issues with your door, they can take the necessary precautions to be able to replace your spring or springs without putting themselves at risk.

What Happens When the Springs Break?

What Not to Do After the Springs Break

Garage doors are heavy and can be difficult to move without mechanical assistance. Do not attempt to open or close the door yourself if you notice that the opener has stopped working. You put yourself at considerable risk of injury if you attempt to do so. This can also further damage the opener, and the door may suddenly close or crash down on you.

Types of Garage Door Springs

There are two major kinds of garage door springs: Extension and Torsion. They are both efficient and attractive designs but are designed for different garage types.

Extension Springs

One major type of garage door spring is the extension spring. These springs are usually used in tandem, and they extend to open and close the garage door.

Advantages of Extension Springs

Extension springs are less expensive than torsion springs and they are ideal for small garages because why are mounted on either side of your garage door. Therefor, they do not require much space.

Disadvantages of Extension Springs

Extension springs do need to be installed and used in tandem. If one spring breaks, you need to replace the other one, too.

Torsion Springs

Torsion garage door springs use torsion to force the garage door open and shut. They can be used individually or in pairs. A single garage door will usually have one torsion spring.

Advantages of Torsion Springs

Torsion springs can be used individually.Torsion springs are generally made of stronger material than other types of garage door springs. Torsion garage door springs can last up to twice as long as Extension garage door springs.
