Garage Door Repairs
There are a number of components to a garage door that could go wrong if not properly serviced. These range from springs breaking, to runners snapping, and everything in between.
Garage Door Spring Repair
Your garage door springs are arguably, the most important component to your garage door next to the door itself.
Your garage door has two springs. There are extension springs which are found on the upper tracks on both sides of the door, and torsion springs which are located above a closed garage door. These springs are used to balance a door and counteract the force of gravity, so it is light enough for you, or an automatic system, to lift easily.
Both are can be extremely dangerous when fiddled with by unexperienced hands, so should only be dealt with by professionals.
Garage Door Roller Spindle Repair
A roller spindle is the wheel fixing that allows your door to move along its runners. When they break, they are pretty simple to spot as your door opening movement will be difficult or near impossible.
There are a number of reasons that your roller spindles can break or become inefficient. The first is that your roller spindles have become worn for age, causing them to become stiff. Another is that the runner the roller spindles sit in are too tight, preventing the wheels from rolling freely. It is important to get this problem resolved quickly, to prevent further problems and to ensure that safety of your garage.
Garage Door Cable Repair
The cables that are attached to your garage door are an important part of the lifting mechanism that prevents injury when opening your door. When the garage door opens, stored tension in the springs lifts the door, turning the shaft to which the cables are connected. This then turns the drum and wraps the cable holding the door in place.
Through general wear and tear, your garage door cable will show signs of strain. If not repaired or replaced, the cable could snap. Another common cable problem are obstructions to the garage door that may result in the cables twisting and snagging.
It is important to get your cables replaced before wear and tear really starts to take a toll on the efficiency of your garage door. You should also ensure that your garage door is always free from obstructions.
