What are extension springs?
A garage door will have several different types of springs; side-mounted, torsion and extension springs. The extension springs run from the pulley that's connected to the door and extend into the rear track hanger. Give us a call when you need repairs to any springs as they can be under extreme tension and can cause injury if not handled properly.
When should I replace my garage door springs?
Garage door springs are good for up to ten thousand cycles, according to our specialists at garage door repair Bolingbrook. Since it is impossible to keep track by counting, inspect the springs for their flexibility. If they have started to become weak, then they could be due for a replacement soon.
What should I do if my garage door stops working midway?
If your garage door stops while it is half open, do not release it immediately since it could fall on you or your vehicle. Stop whatever you are doing, clear the immediate vicinity of the garage door and restart the system.
