Financing Available Spring Replacement

Broken garage door springs are one of the most common repairs that all garage door repair companies encounter. Most people are under the impression that the garage door opener is the component that opens and closes the garage door, however, it is actually the springs that do the heavy lifting. Consider this, the typical garage door can weigh between 300 and 1000 lbs. In addition, the average American garage door opens and shuts 1500 times a year. Because of that, springs will wear out over time and will eventually need to be replaced.

While most spring manufacturers make springs with a lifecycle of 10,000, we at Arizona Garage Door & Repair, offer springs rated as high-cycle springs. These springs calculate out to between 25,000 and 65,000 depending on which wire size and length your door needs. We are stocked with many different size springs to insure we have the right one on-hand when your spring needs replacing.

Torsion Spring vs. Extension Springs

Garage doors are equipped with either torsion springs (typically located on the wall above the door) or extension springs (on either side of the track attached to pulleys) The purpose of garage door spring systems is to counter balance the door to allow for smooth operation. When springs wear down, the door can become off balance often causing noisy, rough operation. When springs break, your door won't even open. (A visible inspection of the spring (or springs) is the easiest way to tell if they are broken.)

Springs are often under a tremendous amount of tension and can be dangerous to work on. This is why we highly caution against any homeowner from attempting to replace them on their own. Also, if springs are not installed correctly, the repair job can be even more costly than the original fix.

To rate how many cycles your door has gone through, you’ll want to multiple how many times you use it per day by 365 days per year. For example, if you open and close your door 4 times per day and multiple by 365, you’ll have operated it 1,460 times. Now, divide this by the average 10,000 rated springs, and you can expect your spring to last for approximately 6.5 years.

Finally, garage door springs are not one size fits all. With all different sizes and styles of garage doors on the market today, it’s now more important than ever to ensure your garage door repair company verity’s your door’s overall height and weight, prior to supplying you with replacements springs. Being supplied with the proper wire size and length is paramount to ensuring your door’s operation.

At Arizona Garage Door & Repair, we provide free written estimates, and excellent warranties. We primarily use oil-tempered springs due to their excellent performance properties and balance capabilities. Oil-tempered springs hold their tensile strength over the long run which makes them our go-to choice! For more information, or to schedule service, please feel free to contact us.

Garage Door Safety Month

In light of garage door safety month, we decided to dedicate this post to ways you and your family can stay safe when using your garage door. As technology has progressed over the years, it has become more and more advanced in its safety features. For example, the automatic retractable door helps ensure that the garage door will not shut on your car or on any small children. With the new and very helpful innovative garage door tools, we are better able to assist and take care of you!

Here are a few ways we can help:

1) We need to check your garage door censors

The alignment of your garage door censors is a very important factor in making sure your garage door retracts in a proper amount of time (while causing little to no damage). These censors are located at the bottom of your garage door tracks closes to the floor. That means, they are more susceptible to being bumped, accidentally, causing misalignment within your garage door censors. Once we come out and check your garage censors, you shouldn’t experience any more difficulties with your garage door retracting.

2) Talk to your kids about safety

Even with a flawless retracting test, it is important to inform your children (Especially the ones that can reach the garage door opener) that closing and opening the garage door is not a game and it is not safe. Our hope is that by educating even our little ones about garage door safety, it will help us decrease the amount of garage door accidents and injuries.

3) Don’t wait till it’s too late

We have seen some people postpone garage door repairs simply due to a lack of urgency. We strongly encourage you, even with minor garage repairs, to not wait and to contact us immediately at the sight of and off track garage, broken spring, or a squeaky garage door. To avoid sever issues or injuries, make your garage door a priority by calling us at:
