Garage Door SpringsBack To Our Services
The feat of raising a heavy door overhead is achieved with the use of garage door springs. With these metallic coils, the weight of heavy doors is counterbalanced thus assisting the lifting action placed upon them. This is very much appreciated since it would be such a pain to have to exert a lot of effort just to open the door to get the car out. Without the springs, or with even one of them broken, the door will not be operable. Moreover, it will be rather dangerous to handle and it is strongly recommended to keep away from it until the spring is replaced.
The Coils of Automation
The springs' mechanism might look complicated, but the physics behind it is easy to understand. The tension created as the spring winds and unwinds according to the door's position counterbalances the weight, making sure the door moves according to the openers' arm. The opener only applies minimum physical power in the works, and the springs do most of the heavy lifting behind the scenes.
Replacing a Broken Spring
A broken spring is a serious problem to have. Replacing this part takes the right experience and knowledge, and it's definitely not recommended for first-timers. Our team at Garage Door Repair McDonough will make sure your spring is professionally and safely replaced with a matching part.
