Staten Island Garage Door Springs
If you have a garage door then you definitely have garage door springs. In fact, you could claim that the springs might have the hardest job of all the parts on your garage door. The torsion springs are responsible for balancing the weight of the entire door when it lifts and lowers. They use a system of counterbalancing the weight so the door evenly lifts and lowers.
The springs are wound with an extreme amount of pressure. This can be extremely dangerous if the spring snaps unexpectedly. If this happens the door can suddenly drop with a whole lot of force behind it. This is why you should never try to fix or change your garage door springs on your own. The springs are always something that should be handled by a professional. Here at Staten Island Garage Doors our technicians are garage door experts who deal with garage doors and springs every day. They know exactly how to handle the situation so that no one gets hurt.
Staten Island Garage Door Springs is always here for you!
If you notice your garage door making squeaking sounds you can try lubricating the springs to see if that helps, but if the sounds continue you should definitely seek council from Staten Island Garage Doors. Also, if the door is opening and closing unevenly you should definitely call an expert in because this means one of the springs is sagging and that means it is time to replace it.
If the springs are the same age we always recommend replacing both at the same time to save on the service charge. If one of them is wearing down or sagging that means the other one is going to soon as well since they literally get the same amount of use, so it just makes more sense to replace them both and know you are good for a while.
