A general description of how our expert professional garage door technician might perform a spring replacement:
1. Assessment and Preparation: The technician will arrive at your location and begin by assessing the type and condition of the existing garage door spring(s). They will confirm the appropriate replacement spring(s) based on the door's weight, size, and other relevant factors. Safety measures will be taken, such as unplugging the garage door opener and securing the door in a closed position.
2. Release Tension from Old Spring (for Torsion Springs): If your garage door has torsion springs, the technician will use winding bars to carefully and slowly release tension from the old spring. This is a critical step to prevent accidents and injuries.
3. Removal of Old Spring: After releasing the tension, the technician will remove the old spring safely and cautiously from the torsion tube.
4. Installation of New Spring: The new spring, which matches the specifications of your garage door, will be installed onto the torsion tube.
5. Re-Tensioning (for Torsion Springs): The technician will re-tension the new torsion spring to the appropriate level based on the door's weight and size. This is crucial for the proper functioning of the garage door.
6. Safety Cable Installation (for Extension Springs): If your garage door uses extension springs, the technician will install safety cables to help contain the spring's tension in case of breakage, reducing the risk of injury and property damage.
7. Lubrication and Maintenance: Moving parts, including the springs, hinges, and rollers, will be properly lubricated to ensure smooth operation and extend the life of the components.
8. Testing and Adjustment: The technician will thoroughly test the garage door, checking for smooth and balanced movement. - Adjustments will be made if necessary to ensure that the door opens and closes properly.
9. Safety Inspection: A comprehensive safety inspection will be conducted to ensure all components are in good working condition. The technician will also inspect the garage door tracks, cables, and other hardware for signs of wear or damage.
