A proper functioning garage door is vital for a long life of a garage door. Our qualified technicians will replace or repair warn out parts to improve the longevity of the door. A garage door is composed of many metallic parts that need to be constantly lubricated to reduce the wearing of bearings and hinges. To understand the proper upkeep of a door, the mechanics of the garage door have to be first understood. A garage door is composed of a few mechanical components, when integrated together they work as a whole.
The main component of any door is the spring. The spring is usually found over the garage door, its role is to take away as much weight as possible, making it seem light enough to lift with one finger. The springs are wound in respect to the height of the door, and are secured to a torsion bar. The torsion bar stretches from one side to the other, overhanging the tracks. On either side of the door, drums are located to wind up cables that are attached to the bottom of the garage door.
