Torsion Spring Repair Kennesaw & Marietta

Broken Torsion Spring

If your torsion springs break you may be in need of our help. Torsion springs will only open and close a garage door for a certain number of times before they break. Every time a garage door is opened and closed the springs have gone through one life cycle. The average life expectancy for torsion springs is 10,000 life cycles or 10-15 years of moderate use.  Torsion springs are dangerous to work on because they store a tremendous amount of energy. Many people have been injured while trying to replace a torsion spring. Never try to fix torsion springs unless you have been properly trained by a professional. At CSS Garage Doors we stock springs engineered to last longer than industry standard. In fact our torsion springs should last 30% longer for the average garage door. Garage door springs usually break when the door is closed, which often leaves your car stuck in the garage creating a major inconvenience. For this reason we offer emergency service and weekend service to Kennesaw, Marietta, Acworth, Woodstock, and Canton. All of our employees have a large stock of springs which allows them to repair most any garage door spring on site immediately. That means you will be able to get back to your life more quickly.

Kennesaw and Marietta Extension Spring Replacement

Broken Extension Spring

Most single car garage doors use extension springs while all two car garage doors should have torsion springs. Extension springs mount along the sides of the tracks that run horizontal to the ceiling. When the garage door closes extension springs stretch along the length of the tracks. Extension spring systems require pulleys and cables to work properly. Each spring operates independently of the other allowing the door to tilt from side to side. When an extension spring breaks it retracts violently often damaging other parts of the garage door system. Extension springs usually last 10-15 years like torsion springs. When one extension spring breaks it is best to replace both springs or the garage door will be off balance. When replacing extension springs it is also recommended to replace the pulleys and cables. Extension springs are dangerous to work on for the untrained individual and for that reason it is best to have them installed by a garage door  professional.

Broken TorqueMaster Springs in Kennesaw and Marietta

Torquemaster springsTorqueMaster Spring

TorqueMaster garage door springs are not visible because they mount inside a tube above the garage door. TorqueMaster springs are not individually replaceable thus requiring a garage door technician to convert the springs to a standardized system. Converting TorqueMaster springs is more expensive than the average spring replacement because more parts are required. Most people don’t know that they have a broken TorqueMaster spring because it is hidden inside a tube. The best way to check if your spring is broken is by lifting the garage door manually. A properly functioning garage door should be easy to lift. If the door is unusually heavy to lift than you most likely have a broken spring. Never use your electric opener when you know a spring is broken. Opening a broken garage door with an electric opener will only cause more damage to your garage door and opener.
