The problem could even be that you need garage door coil spring replacement. If that’s the case and you need garage door spring repair in the Phoenix area, contact Stapley Action Garage Door as soon as possible.

Garage Door Spring Replacement

Determining if a garage door coil spring is damaged is something you can attempt to do on your own, but often requires professional assistance. The most common garage door spring replacement needed is the torsion spring. To know if garage door coil spring replacement is something you will need, you will first have to identify the torsion spring and check it to see if it is intact and functioning properly.

How Do I Identify the Torsion Spring?

Typically, the garage door spring is exposed and mounted to the wall above your garage door. The garage door spring is most visible when the door is closed which is most likely the case if your garage door spring has failed. You will see a coil of wire wound in a circle. If you don’t see a coil of wire above your door and you have a Wayne Dalton torque master system, please notify Stapley Action Garage Door of this when you call for scheduling garage door spring repair.

How Do I Know If the Spring Is Working?

If you can physically see the spring you will be looking for a gap in the spring where it has separated from itself. When the correct spring is used and wound properly this is what does the physical lifting of your garage door. A lot of consumers are under the impression a garage door opener does the lifting. This is not true. If your spring is broken please stop further use of your garage door opener and garage door. Further use of the garage door opener, even if it will open the garage door, will cause further damage to your garage door opener.

Can I Replace a Garage Door Spring by Myself?

Although it is possible to replace your own garage door spring, it is not recommended. First, there are many real safety issues to think about for anyone considering a garage door coil spring replacement who isn’t a trained professional. It’s quite possible for you to injure yourself while attempting to replace your garage door spring, especially if you don’t have the correct tools or understand the proper procedures.

Stapley Action Garage Door employs highly trained professionals who have years of experience safely removing and replacing garage door springs for residential and commercial garage doors. A broken bone as the result of a fall, aggravated back trying to lift more than you can handle or any number of other negative health outcomes will leave you regretting you didn’t call for professional garage door coil spring replacement services sooner.

Another risk you take if you try to replace your garage door spring by yourself is making the problem worse. One wrong move can potentially drive garage door coil spring replacement costs through the roof. It is possible that your current problem can be repaired without having to replace the torsion spring, but if you damage it further in your attempt to fix it, it may require a costlier replacement. Or worse yet, you may damage some other part of the garage door or garage door opener while attempting your do-it-yourself repair, incurring an even greater expense.
