It’s early morning and time to go to work. You enter your car and click on the garage door remote to open the garage door, and… nothing happens, the door is not going up / going up about a foot and stops. If this situation sounds familiar, most likely your garage door spring(s) broke. Unlike what many people think, the ability to operate a garage door comes not from the electric opener, but rather from the springs. The industry’s standard (i.e. the most commonly found springs on residential garage doors) is the torsion spring. This type of spring usually sits on a tube at the top of the garage frame, centered on a bracket that’s connected to the garage. This spring is loaded with tension when the door is in the “closed” position, and, with two screws, holds onto the tube. Thus, when the door goes up, the tension on the spring allows us to manually operate the garage door.
The Proper Equipment
The wrong spring in the wrong place can be detrimental. Our technicians won’t waste your time with faulty springs or a shortage of the proper tools for the job. After scrutinizing the condition of the door and the type of springs installed previously, we carefully select the right garage door springs for your individual door. The springs are chosen based on weight and size and undergo a balance test to ensure they correct for the weight of the door. This prevents unnecessary future visits due to a set of springs which cannot support the weight of the door and break too easily
Safety and Efficiency
The typical number of cycles any given set of garage door springs can endure is 5,000-10,000 cycles (opening and closing the door once). Our springs are composed of durable, high-grade steel and are guaranteed to last for 25,000-50,000 cycles for a long-lasting level of functioning you will not find anywhere else! Every spring is coated with a weather-resistant powder preventing corrosion and gradual damage from friction. Although we are confident in our products and provide free safety inspections after installations to make sure that all safety standards are met, we understand that peace of mind cannot be understated. This is why we provide a warranty and even offer an extended warranty option. Have any of our springs broken before the end of the warranty? Give Bulldog Garage Doors a call and we’ll replace them at no cost!
