Why should I Convert to Garage Door Torsion Springs?
There are two major garage door springs: Extension and Torsion. Extension performed well enough for its time, but today, torsion springs are far more preferred in garage door installations. There are so many reasons, but a few of them are the fact that torsion springs last longer, allow for smoother, more gradual movement, the assembly uses fewer parts and finally in the event of a spring breakage, torsion springs are less dangerous. If you call us for garage door repair, depending on which spring type you have, we may need to perform a garage door torsion spring conversion before we can perform garage door spring replacement.
At this point, the only reason to get extension springs is if the garage door does not have enough clearance above it. If you are building a new garage, you probably should choose the torsion spring. If you have an existing garage and want to install a new garage door, you also should consider using a torsion spring.
How Much Does Garage Door Torsion Spring Conversion Cost?
The dimensions and weight of the garage door will affect how much a garage door torsion spring conversion will cost. The largest garage doors can be converted for no more than four hundred dollars – maybe even less than three hundred. With the increased safety and control, it is well worth the investment.
Every step of a torsion spring conversion and torsion spring adjustment is potentially dangerous and should only be done by someone with adequate training and equipment.
