Garage Door Spring Repair Common Industry Practices
Say, for the sake of argument your door weight is 180 lbs and Company A replaces a garage door spring engineered to lift a 150 lb door. In this case, the door would be 30lbs out of balance or 30 lbs too heavy. To compensate, the service person would add more winds onto the spring, and no one’s the wiser. This adjustment drastically reduces the life of the spring and can damage your door and door opener beyond repair.
But what if company A replaces garage door springs engineered to lift 210lbs. Again the door is 30lbs out of balance and is too light. To compensate, the service person would reduce winds onto the spring, and no one’s the wiser. By removing winds off the springs it may keep the door closed, but now there are not enough winds on the springs to keep enough cable tension on the spools up above. A light garage door is the most dangerous of improper balancing. You would not want the door to shoot up into the open position when the red rope was yanked. Doors that are too light can be dangerous to use.
Keep in mind. Once the service person installs your new garage springs, they would reinstall your garage door opener back up. Hiding any underlying issues.
A light garage door is the most dangerous of improper balancing. You would not want the door to shoot up into the open position when the red rope was yanked.
We come across several homes every day with unbalanced garage doors. Although there are several reasons for this, the most common reason is our competition may only stock 6 – 8 sizes of garage springs due to cost, storage and convenience.
