Quality parts are a veTorsion Spring Systemry important thing when you are considering replacing your Garage Door or repairing your broken spring. You wouldn’t want plastic parts to help lift your Garage Door when the temperatures drop to single digits and below. We all know what the winters can be like here in Minnesota and it is important to have quality materials installed on the largest moving part of your home. That is why it is important to have a Standard Torsion Spring System installed when you purchase a new Garage Door or have your broken spring repaired.


Different Torsion Systems make a Difference

Over in Inver Grove Heights we had a customer that had recently had their Garage Door replaced by another company and they were having some issues they wanted checked over. While we were servicing their door and opener we found that a sub-par spring system had been installed. Some of the different spring systems that are available have a lot of plastic parts and smaller springs. Sometimes the springs are also hidden from view so you, as a customer, can’t even tell if there is a broken spring. This was the case in Inver Grove Heights and we needed to convert it to a standard torsion spring system. At Rise & Shine Garage Doors we always use the highest quality parts that are made from solid steel so that our customers know the repair is going to last.

Parts and Repairs Involved with a Standard Torsion System

Part of the reason why it is so important to make sure you have a Standard Torsion Spring System installed the first time is to save costs down the road. When you go with a sub-par product that has a lot of plastic parts or springs that are hidden from view there is no way to repair them. You have to either replace the entire system or convert it to a standard system. Converting the system is time consuming and expensive; it involves all new steel shaft, drums, end bearings, cables, center bearing, center plate, and new torsion springs. Also if your spring system is hidden from view and you have a broken spring you may continue to run the door as normal and could end up stripping a gear in the Garage Door Opener. To avoid all these costly headaches make sure you have your Garage Door installed the right way the first time.
