Salt Lake City Garage Door Spring Replacement
As a garage door company the most common “repair” that is requested of us is to repair the springs. This term is incorrect though, because any good garage door company will never repair a garage door spring. That would be completely irresponsible. Torsion springs are wound up very tightly with an extreme amount of force and pressure, this allows the springs to balance the door evenly when in use. But it also means that if a spring snaps and the door falls it is falling with a ton of pressure behind it.
Once a spring starts to lose that tension it can never fully have it replaced. That is why it is always better to replace the springs. We will never repair them for your safety and to save you money on another service call when the spring gives out quickly after being repaired. We would also suggest that you have both springs replaced at the same time, unless one of them has been replaced more recently. You might be wondering why that would be necessary if the other spring is working well and we’ll tell you why. Your springs are used equally when lifting and lowering the door, so if one of them has started to show signs of wearing and is losing that “spring” then the other one is probably on its way out as well. This way you can save money on the additional service charge and you will know that both springs are in great working order!
