 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 we tighten them as well.  Part of the tune up we will also make sure that the garage door is balanced and the torsion spring will be adjusted if necessary.  A reliable garage door is a 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 break as early as 3 years if they are low in quality. We have seen them break after 26 years.

TORQUE MASTER TORSION SPRING CONVERSION

As population grows, a tremendous amount of new houses are built. Developers often like to bring the overall cost price down and will often use a low cost Torque Master installed as part of their garage door system instead of Torsion Springs.

Wayne Dalton Torque Master torque tube

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 Wayne Dalton bracket wasn't installed.  We can get the correct Wayne Dalton Bracket for additional cost if needed. The best way to fix this broken Torque Master problem is to convert it into a Torsion Spring set. We will remove the  Torque Master set up and install a new spring line, shaft, head plates, anchor plate, drums, bearing inserts and the correct Torsion Spring rated for the weight of your garage door.  The cables rarely needs to be replaced unless signs of stretching/fraying is visible. A good quality Torsion Spring should last approximately 10years or more depending on how often you use your garage door.

REPLACING CABLES

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.
