Anaheim Garage Door Spring Replacement
A broken Garage Door Spring HAS to be taken care of by a professional. It is a dangerous piece of equipment that could physically hurt someone. The garage door spring is a VERY important part of a working garage door. The garage door spring is what allows the garage door to open and close at a light weight. The garage door spring is a maintenance that needs to be checked on annually and replaced every 5-7 years. By calling Absolute Garage Doors in Anaheim, 714-398-8394, we can assist with your garage door needs, including the garage door springs. The mechanics of the garage door spring torsion system includes: a center bracket, a center bearing, 1-2 torsion springs, a torsion tube, 2 side bearing plates, 2 side drums, and 2 steel cables. The strong torsion garage door springs are wound up tight and bolted to the torsion tube. This tube is 17 feet long and is held by the center bracket, and the side bearing plates. Against the side bearing plates are a set of drums; these drums are also bolted and tightened to tube. Attached to drums are the steel cables that are long and are attached to a bottom bracket on the bottom of the garage door. When the garage door is being opened, these bottom cables are being lifted as the drums, torsion tube, and torsion springs are turning and lifting. Without this entire torsion spring mechanism, the garage door that weighs 200-400 pounds would be IMPOSSIBLE to open.
This is why it is very important to annually check your garage door. By calling Absolute Garage Doors in Anaheim, 714-398-8394, we can do our preventive maintenance check on your garage door.

“Our garage door made a LOUD noise and we noticed a spring had broken. We had no idea what to do. It was 9:30 at night. We called absolute garage doors the next morning and they arrived prompt and professional. They gave us a GREAT deal on the pair of springs and labor. We had him change out both springs instead of just one. Really quick, it took less than an hour to do entire job from start to finish. The technician was very helpful and very informative. He gave us tips on the maintenance of the garage door and how to keep the longevity of it. We appreciated their fast service, and how professional and reasonable Absolute Garage Doors was. Thanks Absolute!”
