5 REASONS WHY MY GARAGE DOOR SPRING BROKE

image3

 1. Garage door springs do almost all of the work of lifting your door regardless of the door being manually or automatically operated. The spring makes it possible for anyone to lift a product that might weigh one hundred pounds on the low end and many hundreds of pounds on the high end. Not only can anyone lift it – most can do it with one hand! In other words, the garage door spring does a lot of work.  

  2. These springs do wear out over time – in fact, they are commonly rated with what is called a cycle life. The average standard cycle life is ten thousand cycles with each cycle being one opening and closing of the door. This means for a door that sees four cycles per day you might expect to replace your springs after somewhere close to seven years of use.  

Extension Spring

 3. On an extension, or stretch type spring there is little you can do to extend the service life. On a torsion spring (the type that is wound on a bar rather than stretching out) you can help ensure a full cycle life by lightly lubricating the coils of the spring to reduce friction.  

 4. It is also important to note that extension springs sometimes do not break but rather ‘stretch out’. This is easy to spot as the space between coils when the door is closed is normally consistent. When the spring fails without breaking the space between the coils will become very inconsistent. This condition is quite visible and if it exists the springs should be replaced (Know when to call quits with your garage door).   

 5. Finally – always remember garage door springs are under extreme tension and can be dangerous if not handled properly. We always recommend service, adjustment or replacement be handled by a qualified professional.

Steel Garage Doors

Steel garage doors are really popular for residential areas for many reasons. Firstly, steel garage doors are incredibly low maintenance! If you have a steel garage door, you really only have to have your garage door serviced once or twice a year to keep it in good shape. Durability is another benefit to having steel garage doors. A well maintained steel garage door can last for decades! The price of steel garage doors is incredibly affordable and you get great value from this on resale. Lastly, the best thing about steel garage doors is the variety of different styles you can get. There is sure to be a steel garage door in your desired style, from flush panels to elegant windows to doors that look like wood.

FAQs

image8

 

What should my rough opening size be?

The same size as your door. The door fits against the opening from the inside. The opening should be finished with an exterior perimeter seal or stop molding to seal against the elements. 


What do you recommend for painting of my steel garage door?

Steel doors should be painted with a high quality exterior latex (water base) paint. The surface must be cleaned prior to application of paint to the steel. On new doors, the surface just needs to be wiped down with a damp cloth. Doors which have been installed for a while should be cleaned with a tri-sodium-phosphate based product (such as Soilax„ or diluted Spic-n-Span or a mild household cleaner). Doors do not require a coat of primer unless the finish has been damaged down to the silver galvanizing. 


What horsepower garage door opener do I need?

Generally a 1/3 horsepower opener is sufficient for any single car doors and a 1/2 horsepower for some of the heavier double car doors. The door must be reinforced prior to attachment of a garage door opener (please refer to the manufacturer’s instruction for more information). 


How much headroom do I need to install a garage door?

Doors with extension springs require 10″ of headroom while doors with torsion springs require 12″ of headroom. If installing a garage door opener, you will need an additional 2″-3″ headroom dependent upon the manufacturer of the opener. Low headroom hardware is available that can reduce the headroom requirement to as low as 4″. 


When speaking about the thickness of steel, Is lower the number.. the thicker the steel?

Yes. The lower the gauge, the thicker (and stronger) the steel (ex. a 24 gauge steel is thicker than a 27 g. steel). 


Does my garage door require maintenance?

We recommend the following maintenance be performed on an annual basis (please refer to the installation manual for a detailed description of the maintenance requirements):

  • Clean door surface with a mild household detergent and rinse with clear water (best if done twice a year)
  • Lubricate all moving parts of the door with light household oil (e.g. WD 40)
  • Check for bent or loose hinges
  • Check rollers for broken wheels, bent shafts or worn out bearings
  • Check the door and track supports for loose or missing bolts, screws, etc. and tighten.
  • Check the extension spring lift cables for proper operation (are they running properly in the pulleys, is the cable rubbing at the bottom bracket button location?)
  • Check for bent track
