Garage Door Track Alignment & Repair Services
Most residential garage doors use galvanized torsion springs. This is the central component of the lift mechanism. Its durability is paramount for the trouble-free operation of the overhead door and depends on a set of factors. In general, since the spring is made of galvanized steel, this means that it has natural protection from corrosion. However, if the protective zinc coating gets damages, the metal underneath will be at risk. That is why it is crucial only for safe cleaners and solvents to be used on the hardware and around the garage as well. Another factor determining durability is the wire gauge. The thicker the wire is, the harder it is to break. Maintenance will also determine the useful life of the component. Regularly cleaned and properly lubricated springs last longer as the lubricant reduces the amount of friction and the rate of wearing. Rely on us for spring repair, replacement and care.
