Broken Torsion Springs

Broken Garage Door Torsion Spring

Broken Garage Door Torsion Spring

Torsion springs counterbalance the weight of your garage door. They make the heavy door easier to open or close. All garage doors, whether manual and automatic, have springs.

If your garage door is out of balance, the springs need to be serviced. Unbalanced doors put a strain on the motor of the automatic door opener, making it work harder and wear out faster.

If a garage door torsion spring breaks, don’t open or close the door until a professional takes a look and makes repairs. The springs on a door are powerful and can cause significant injury.

Garage Door Opener

Sometimes it’s the automatic opener that goes on the blink. The problem may be a dead battery in the remote. Or, the photo eyes, a safety feature, may be dirty or out of alignment. The motor in the opener may fail. Whatever the problem, we’ll be able to diagnose it and recommend a fix.

Tune-Ups

Commercial Garage Door Replacement Parts

Tune-Up

Regular tune-ups keep your garage door working smoothly and prevent small problems from growing into big ones. We offer tune-ups for all types of garage doors, both residential and commercial.

With regular care, your door will last for decades. Aside from saving money on repairs and replacement, tune-ups keep everyone safe. Garage doors have safety features, but accidents can happen if a door isn’t maintained.

The Ponderosa Service Plan makes it easy to ensure your door is always running smoothly. Contact us for information about this money-saving program.

Here are some of the problems we address during regular inspections and tune-ups:

Loose Parts

Loose bolts and screws can lead to vibration. The extra movement adds noise and wear. During a tune-up, we’ll tighten or replace things as needed.

Lubrication

Your door’s moving parts need to be cleaned and lubricated from time to time. We use the right type of grease or lube for the various components on the door. Before lubrication, we’ll clean off rust and dirt.

Tracks and Rollers

Rollers and tracks can become misaligned, increasing friction and putting a strain on the motor of the opener. We’ll inspect these critical components, clean them and make sure everything is rolling smoothly.

Balance the Door

We’ll disengage the motor and test the door. If it’s out of balance, we may need to service the springs or make other repairs. Because of the risk of serious injury, we recommend that homeowners never perform this service themselves.
