Garage doors and other similar folding doors are very heavy, with some commercial doors weighing several hundred pounds. For safety and the ease of opening them, these doors utilize a torsion spring. However, the spring can sometimes fail, leading to a door that cannot be opened.
Garage door spring repair is one of our specialties at BDC Door. If your door cannot be opened by hand, a broken spring is a likely culprit. Don’t try to repair your garage door spring yourself – count on the specialists at BDC Door to handle the repairs swiftly and safely!
How Garage Door Spring Repair Works
The torsion spring of your heavy sectional door acts as a counter-balance for the weight of the door. This tightly coiled spring stores a significant amount of energy, allowing it to carry most of the weight of a heavy steel or aluminum door.
If this spring malfunctions, the door will be difficult or impossible to open by hand. In order to repair the door, we will need to replace the spring. This process involves special tools to neutralize the remaining tension in the broken spring. Without the right tools and methods, the spring could snap, leading to serious injury or damages. That’s why it’s best to leave it to the professionals when it comes to garage door spring repair!
