One Torsion Spring or Two?

There is nothing more frustrating than jumping in your car to leave or coming home after a long day at work and discovering your garage door will not open. Many times, when this happens, your torsion spring has broken. Your garage door will be extremely heavy and will not open easily. This is when you want to call a local garage door company, like Baldwin Garage Doors and Gates, that you can trust to get the repair done not only quickly but right.

We recommend having 2 torsion springs installed but, is it really worth the extra money? We think so! Your garage door will operate just fine with only 1 spring in place. The second spring acts as a kind of insurance policy. When one breaks, the other spring will ensure that your garage door will still open and close, making it possible for you to get your car in or out of your garage. You will not be stuck, giving you a more flexible timeframe to have the broken one replaced.

If you are in need of a spring replacement, give us a call at (515) 650-7833 and we will have your garage door working smoothly and properly again. We offer same day, evening and weekend appointments that fit your needs, as well as 24/7 Emergency Service.
