Mountain Fox Garage Doors is your source for fast and easy garage door springs replacement. With the initial phone call, our staff will help you find a convenient time for one of our expert technicians to come out to your home and get you fixed up in no time. Garage door springs come in a wide variety of strengths and sizes, and it’s important that you have a team with professional knowledge and expertise to get you taken care of.
The most overlooked obstacle with springs is the shear danger working on them. Your garage door operates under high tension from the spring, and you can seriously injure yourself or a family member unless you know the proper precautions to take.
There are two major types of torsion springs that you should be aware of – The zinc galvanized spring and oil tempered spring. The zinc galvanized spring has more of a shiny metalic color and is generally considered a lower grade spring. Most garage door spring replacement companies tend to put these cheaper springs in unsuspecting customers’ home to save on overhead. Here at Mountain Fox Garage Doors, we constantly visit families with broken zinc galvanized springs, and we always upgrade them to our standard spring: The oil tempered garage door spring.
The oil tempered spring is a high life cycle spring that is scientifically built to last. When you’re deciding on a garage door company, make absolutely sure that they only use the highest quality springs in your home. Mountain Fox Garage Doors’ goal is have happy customers — not create more unnecessary expenses for people.
When you hire Mountain Fox Garage Doors, a professional technician will arrive at your home fully stocked with all the supplies and more than 20 sizes of springs to help ensure you get the proper fitting spring. If we don’t have the exact spring to meet your need, we will not use a spring that is “close” like so many other companies often do. Garage door springs are chosen based on the total weight of the door, the size of the drums and radius of the track. It’s absolutely important that you get the correct garage door spring for your individual door so that the entire system is properly balanced.
Your garage door opener works hard, but the garage door spring makes sure it doesn’t work TOO hard and has to pull more weight than it’s designed to do. All of these parts have to work together in perfect balance to ensure that your system stays safe and secure for years and years.
