It’s 7 am you’re leaving for work. You open the garage door and hear a loud “BOOM”! Your door has dropped back to the ground hard, possibly even lop-sided, and you cannot open it – now you’re stuck and can’t get your vehicle out. Hope you weren’t rushing out for an early meeting because guess what? That was the torsion breaking on your door (the long spring attached above your door). Looking at the spring, you will usually be able to see gaps that should not be there.
Here are your decisions:
- How do I get this repaired quickly?
- There’s only one spring on my 16×7 door; do I get 1 or 2 springs? Why or why not?
- The quality?
- The cost?
We are excited to say that we have provided reliable, punctual, and same day service appointments since 1977! We arrange 30-minute appointment windows so you don’t have to wait around on us to arrive. We realize that your time is valuable; it is our priority to be punctual. We have trucks spread throughout the day in the Dallas area and can typically have a company service technician to your home usually within an hour or so of your call.
Due to safety issues, springs should be replaced and not repaired. The springs’ purpose is to carry the weight of the door while it’s being opened or closed. Garage doors can weigh up to several hundred pounds, depending on the size, style and material of the door.
A “habit” of some home builders is cutting corners in one place to make other areas of the home more appealing. Unfortunately, the garage door is an area of where they cut expenses by installing only one torsion spring on a standard 16’x7′ garage door when there really should be two. Even though the door will function, having only one spring places unnecessary wear and unbalance to the door which, over time, causes the spring to break due to over-use.
We include a lifetime warranty on our replacement springs. Our springs are not builder-grade; they are made of a heavier duty, better quality material that we stand behind. They are individually computer-calibrated to lift your door a minimum 10,000 – 25,000 cycles. We offer a low price guarantee on our springs. We provide upfront, turn-key pricing which includes tax AND labor.
Upgrade to two springs, find the best price associated with the best warranty, and find a company that can do it the same day.
