GARAGE DOOR TUNE-UP
Get ready for winter. Have you garage door tuned up for the cold season. I will check the condition of all garage door parts and recommend if anything should be replaced. As part of the tune up, rollers, hinges head plate bearings, and the torsion spring will be lubricated.
Over time hinges tend to work themselves loose, so i tighten them too. The door will also be checked for correct balance the torsion spring will be adjusted if necessary. A reliable door is great piece of mind when the weather becomes difficult.
Please note for torsion springs. Knowing when they were last replaced can help give an idea where they are on their life cycle. Often they will begin to loose tension before they break, usually with the garage door closed and late at night when the temperature drops. They can go in 3 years if they are lower in quality. I have seen them broken after 26 years.

TORQUE MASTER TORSION SPRING CONVERSION
As population growth continues, a tremendous amount of new houses have been built. Developers often like to bring the overall build price down and in doing so will have a low cost Torque Master installed as part of their garage door system.
These are designed with a small spring inside a tube expanding a little more than half the tube's length. They have the lifespan of about 3 years. You wont see that it is broken when it goes, though you will notice your garage door feels heavier and your opener will straining when it tries to open.
Being a single spring inside if broken the entire weight of the door has no balance. In some cases your opener will begin to rip the opener arm off the top section, especially if the proper WD bracket wasn't installed. I can get WD arm brackets if needed. The best way to fix this broken Torque Master problem is a torsion spring conversion. It involves removal of you torque tube and installing a spring line. New shaft, head plates, anchor plate, drums, bearing insert, and the correct torsion spring rated for your doors weight. The cables dont usually need to be replaced unless showing signs of stretching. A good quality spring should last at least 10 years or more.
conversion replacement parts
When garage door cables go bad, first begin to stretch. Next they will begin to fray. As the weight of the door is put on fewer strands over time, eventually they break and often leaving your door hanging crooked. It is recommended they get replaced when they stretch and definitely when they start to fray. I only replaced them in pairs using durable 1/8" thick cable strong enough for any residential garage door. This type of repair is critical as it is a dangerous job and has to be done correctly the first time. A professional is highly recommended as special tools and proper training are required.
