New Garage Door Installations & Other Repairs in Hickoyr, NC

The most common reason for emergency garage door repair calls in Hickory and other North Carolina cities is broken or worn springs. Normally, garage doors are very easy to open and close, so most people don’t realize that these big doors weigh a few hundred pounds. The reason that even a child can slide doors up and down on the tracks is because either torsion or extension springs do most of the work.

After years of moving doors up and down thousands of times, the springs will either break, lose tension, or become out of balance. At that point, doors are unsafe to operate and probably, impossible to move. While some home handymen might attempt to replace their own springs, it isn’t really one of the easiest or safest household DIY jobs. To get the job done correctly and without injuries, some training and special tools are required. Meanwhile, our trained technicians can visit your home and get the job completed quickly and without causing injuries or damage.

When discussing garage door springs, a cycle is the term for opening and closing the door once. We offer high-cycle springs that are rated to last for 25,000 to 30,000 cycles, which is much more than average springs that are only rated at about 10,000 cycles. All of our springs are constructed from oil-tempered steel and made in the USA. If you think about how often you open and close your home or business garage doors, you probably realize that you might run your springs through hundreds or even a few thousand cycles in the course of a year.

Why replace both springs if one breaks? Many garage doors use two springs to operate a single door. If one of your springs has broken or become worn, garage door professionals will suggest replacing both springs. The most obvious reason is that the second spring is probably nearing the end of its life if its partner has already broken. It’s a lot more convenient and cheaper to just replace the second spring when you already have a technician at your Hickory home or business to do the job.

Even if the second spring doesn’t seem broken, it’s bound to be worn, have lost tension, and be out of balance. If you don’t have both springs in balance, you could damage your expensive garage door. The springs don’t cost that much, but the time you could lose and the risk of damage to your door could be very expensive.

We know that you have choices when you decide which repair technicians to invite into your home or business. Just be aware that you might find websites that seem to advertise Hickory garage door repairs but don’t really represent a licensed and local business at all. In fact, these are just websites that are intended to generate leads for anybody who will buy them. The names of these websites give you no clue about the identity of the people who will actually show up at your door. If you don’t know who you are working with, you risk getting overcharged or even inviting scammers or criminals onto your property.
