Garage door spring and cable repair
Our experts recommend contacting us if the spring or cable needs repair or replacement. The spring assembly can be different at times and only a professional should attempt to replace or repair torsion springs using the manufacturer's instructions. These springs are under a lot of tension and a small mistake could cause serious injury. Even cables need to be installed correctly and tightened down in addition to checking them for wear and tear.
Garage door safety
A garage door is quite heavy and if it does not function the right way, it could cause potential injury or even death. Never ever stand under a door that is moving and before parking your car, ensure that the door is fully opened. No pets or adults should ever try to enter or exit the garage while the door is closing and never race under a moving garage door.
