More About Woodland Hills Garage Door Repair

Before a faulty garage door can be repaired, the cause of the trouble needs to be determined. If the door is making grinding noises or is difficult to move, the actual door may be the problem. Woodland Hills Garage Door Repair is especially usefull in cases of broken openers and springs. The opener doesn't move the door, but the door is working fine, then the opener needs to be repaired or replaced. There are two types of springs for opening garage doors-torsion and side-mounted. And for any Garage Door Repair in Woodland Hills Rapid Response Constantly stocks both.

An overhead garage door uses spring tension to open and close by pulling the door along metal tracks attached to the garage wall. These tracks need to be flat. If the tracks are vertical, they need to be perfectly straight, if they are horizontal, they need to have a downward slant. The screws, bolts and fasteners can become loose over time and need to be tightened.

Garage door springs do the work of opening the door. The door may be lifted a foot or two by hand and the spring will take over and pull the door all the way open. In the same way a remote opener will start the lift, but the springs do the work. Rapid Response provides complete, full service, same day Garage Door Repair in Woodland Hills as well as Garage Door Spring Replacement. These springs are under a lot of tension which is what gives them the energy needed to open the door, but a faulty spring can be very dangerous. It may drop the door on a vehicle, person or pet.

Lose parts and corrosion can lead to faulty springs and they need to be checked regularly. The whole mechanism including springs, tracks, rollers and arms need to work well. There are different size springs for the different sizes and weights of doors. Changing the damaged spring is a job for a professional. Springs can snap under tension and hurt someone. If there are springs on either side of the door, they should both be replaced at the same time.
