Garage Door Spring Replacement
How do you know if you might need garage door spring repairs? Garage door springs are critical parts of your door, but not many homeowners pay close attention to them until it’s too late. You can identify springs by looking for a long cylindrical spring attached to a metal shaft on your garage door. From there, you will be able to identify the condition of the spring.
A garage door spring’s life expectancy and grade are measured in cycles (when a garage door opens and closes, it is counted as one cycle). Most garage doors last about 10,000 cycles, but we use garage door springs with a lifespan of 25,000 cycles, which typically last about 15 years. If your garage door is approaching this age, it might be time to consider replacing garage door tension springs or getting a garage door torsion spring replacement or installation.
Garage Door Extension Springs
Every garage door system has two types of springs: torsion springs and extension springs. When our garage door replacement service in Bettendorf and Davenport, IA is called to address extension springs, we look at the spring that “stretches” or counterbalances the garage door’s weight. Extension (or tension) springs differ from torsion springs in that they are fully extended while operating and usually require more parts during the repair process.
