Garage Door Spring Repair, South St. Paul, MN
If your garage door springs need attention, contact us to schedule a repair service.
The springs on a garage door play a vital role in the process of allowing it to move up and down. There are two main types of springs on garage doors. The first type is torsion springs, which attach above the closed door, while the extension springs sit above the upper tracks on both sides of the opener. Every time the door opens or closes, the springs engage and use tension to push the door up or down. Since garage doors are made of wood or metal, they are extremely heavy and require the tension from the springs to allow them to move safely and securely. Damaged springs can threaten the safety of your garage door, so it’s important to keep an eye on these components and take action if anything seems awry.
At Access Garage Doors of South St. Paul, we offer garage door spring repair to residential property owners. Many of our clients turn to us for garage door spring repair when a spring has become damaged and the door can no longer go up or down. However, if you notice a problem with a spring sooner rather than later, we can perform a repair before the door stops functioning correctly. The most common cause of garage door spring damage is wear and tear, as the typical set of springs used in the installation process is only engineered and rated to go up and down about 10,000 times. Rust can also shorten the lifespan of garage door springs. If your springs need attention, contact us to schedule a garage door spring repair service.
