 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.

REPLACING CABLES

freyed freying cable

FRAYED CABLE

When garage door cables go bad, first they will begin to stretch. Next they will begin to  fray. As the weight of the door is using 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 cables are under lots of tension that needs to be removed before attempting to replace them with new cables. A professional is highly recommended as special tools and proper training are required with this type of repair on any garage door.

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 7000 cycles. You wont see a broken spring when it breaks, though you will notice your garage door feels heavier and your opener will straining when it tries to open. 

The 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. If you look closely at the attachment point where the opener arm attaches to the top of the garage door on Wayne Dalton doors, often these pull loose ripping apart the top section of your garage door. A special bracket designed for this attachment resolves this issue. Extra bracing can also be added to increase this vulnerable stress point. 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 setup. I will remove the  Torque Master set up and install a new spring line, tube, end bearing plates, anchor plate, drums, bearing inserts with the correct Torsion Spring rated for the weight of your garage door and upcycled most likely rated for more than 20k cycles.  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 with average use depending on how often you use your garage door.
