All you want to know about Spring Replacement
The springs of a garage door are the ones that facilitate the opening and closing of the door during the Spring Replacement Perris. There are two type of springs on your door. The extension and torsion springs. If your springs do not have a warranty by the time they need replacement, you will have to cover the cost.You cannot ignore the replacement of the springs since they literally enable the closing and opening of the door. A torsion spring’s life is approximately six to seven year but that depends on how it is used and how well it is maintained.
The torsion springs are stretched each time the door is opened and closed. The more it is opened and closed the more it wears out. Over the years the springs will eventually give in to the stress of being stretched. At this point you will have no option but to repair the worn out springs. It is good to repair both springs even though you only need to repair one. The extension springs are the ones that help in the lifting of the door through the stretching of the torsion springs. The life cycle of the extension springs is the same as that of the torsion springs during Spring Replacement Perris. Make sure the place where you place the ladder is on a floor that is not slanted. You should need to unplug the motor from the power outlet before you start working on it so avoid someone opening it in the middle of the work.
Finally, you put on the new springs and slide them into the correct position on the torsion bar, tighten up all the loose bolts, plug in again the motor and your garage should be working perfectly again.
