You should not attempt garage door spring repair in Plainfield, IL on your own. Garage door springs, especially extension springs, are under immense pressure, and they can badly hurt you if you mishandle them. Instead, call our garage door company at BDK Door Company for garage spring replacement or repair.
"We just got our new garage door installed this morning, and I'm very pleased with it. BDK gave us a reasonable price, which included taking away the old door. The new door looks great! And the sevice technician installed it by himself. I would definitely recommend this company!"
There are two types of garage door springs: torsion springs and extension springs. The torsion spring is the most popular. It works by using a coil to twist on a shaft to open the garage door. The extension spring is used in garages where headroom is too low to accommodate rear torsion springs. They extend to open your garage door. Not only this, but there are also subtypes of these categories of springs. Only a professional would know the exact type of spring that’s broken and the right way to replace or repair it.
With normal use, garage door springs are supposed to last between six and eight years or 11,000 hours before they need repair or replacement. Signs of problems with your garage door springs include the following:
Crooked or misaligned door
Garage door that won’t open
Squeaking noises or a noise like a gunshot
Garage door that opens a bit and then slams shut
One sign the spring is broken is that your garage door, which has been opening easily, simply won’t open anymore. A spring that is worn out will start to squeak and will keep on squeaking even if it is lubricated. A spring that breaks makes an unmistakably loud noise that many compare to the sound of a gunshot. Dangling cables, doors that are crooked or misaligned in their tracks, or doors that open and then slam down or jerk as they rise or fall are also signs that something is wrong with your garage door springs.
Depending on the state of the damaged or broken spring, our technicians at BDK Door Company may either repair it or replace it. They know which kind of spring needs to be replaced or repaired, and they have the right tools for the job.
