Broken Spring Repair Westchester County New York
A broken garage spring, torsion or extension is not an unusual problem, and it is actually a problem we deal with on a daily base. Luckily, a broken garage door spring, does not mean that you need to buy a new door, since a professional garage door technician should be able to replace all types of springs, whether it is a single car door, or a heavy duty commercial garage door. If you want your broken spring to be fixed today, all you need to do is to call us, and one of our garage doors technicians in Westchester County New York will come to your place to repair or replace the broken spring.
We provide a 24/7 garage door repair service for broken springs in Westchester New York, so you don’t have to worry that you may not be able to open the door (In most cases the spring break when the garage is closed, and since the door can’t use the power of the broken spring to go up, you may find it relatively hard to open the door). The best thing you can do if one of the springs snapped is to do nothing. Avoid using the door and avoid trying to use the opener in order to open it, since if you will insist, you may burn the opener as well. Like we said, we offer same day garage door repair in Westchester NY, so relax and know that your door will be repaired and working again by the end of the day.
Go to your garage and look at the door and try to locate the springs (2 in most garages, but can also range between 1-4 springs in some garages). If you springs are located in the center above the open, and they are wrapped around a steel pipe which called a shaft, it mean that you are using torsion spring system. We usually find torsion spring in heavier garages in Westchester, and we can repair all of them. Since we know which springs are the most common in Westchester County New York, we carry with us springs from different sizes, so most likely we will be able to repair your garage and replace the spring on our first visit.
When you look at the garage door and that the springs are located above the tracks, when there is 1 spring on each side (In some rare cases 2 springs on each side), and you see that the spring is attached to a pulley, it mean that you have extension spring system. Just like with the torsion spring system, it will be best to try and avoid using the door until someone will repair it and replace the snapped spring. And since you have extension spring system, we recommend that you will install safety cables, for protection from damage and injuries in case the spring will snap one day.
If you are planning to buy new springs and do the replacement by yourself, we recommend that you will think it over. You may think that we have selfish reasons to recommend not to replace torsion spring in a DIY, but the truth is that it is simple dangerous, and require knowledge and experience. After many years, we saw people installing wrong springs and breaking a relatively new garages, and we also saw people getting injured since they used the wrong spring, tool or just did not know what they are doing.
So if the case is torsion spring repair, we choose not to give any tips, and avoid recommending a garage door supplier in Westchester. If you are interested in other repairs, or want to purchase parts, you can contact us and we will try to assist you.
In order to avoid broken springs, or any other damage to your garage door, every garage door need to be maintained (at least once every 6 months). The maintenance process is not a complicated process, and performing it on time will ensure that your door is going to continue to operate, and more important continue to work in a safe way. A basic garage door maintenance, in Westchester or anywhere else, which include lubrication, inspection and safety check shouldn’t last more than 40 minutes, but can save you a lot of time in the future.
It is important to explain that if there is a problem, and you need a garage door repair service, the maintenance will not help since it is too late. Only repairing the problem and maintain the door will make it work safely again. But no need to worry, we will lubricate your door for free for every garage door service we will provide in Westchester County.
If you think that there might be a problem with your garage door, do not wait until it will be too late, and the door will stop working and contact us to save time and money. Do not ignore the need for garage doors maintenance and tune up. Just like your car need to be inspected every few months, and just like you need to replace the tires, although the car can still take you from one place to another, so is the garage door.

When it comes to garage door opener, and it doesn’t matter if it is an opener for a garage opener in Mt Vernon New York, or anywhere else in Westchester County NY, there are many different types and brands of openers when each manufacture will declare that they are the best opener manufacture. The truth is that at least one of them has to be right. There are many articles online which try and determine this fact, although we think it is close to impossible to make a clear statement on which brand offer the best openers in the American market.
What we can do, is to give you some general information on the garage door opener, go over different options, and help you to determine which opener will be the opener that will give you the result you are expecting. We will start by saying that our preferred brand is Lift Master, so we will address the different opener types that Lift Master offer.
First we would like to make it clear: It doesn’t matter if you own a garage door in Fairfax Virginias, or in Westchester County. Not every problem that seem like coming from the opener is actually a problem with the opener. The way the opener work is by pushing and pulling the door, when the spring system is in charge of the lifting and gently lowering the door. So if one of the springs snapped, or if the door is not working properly and smoothly without the opener, it shouldn’t be used when it is connected to the opener. It may seem to you like the opener is having hard time to lift the door because it has a problem, when the problem is actually coming from a different source.
This problem can easily be located by a professional technician, who should immediately recognize that there is a problem with the garage door mechanism. If this is the case, addressing the problem and repairing it (Replacing the broken spring in case the problem is due to a broken spring) should fix the issue, and the opener should be able to lift the door again.

When you are looking to purchase a new garage door in Westchester, there few things you should ask yourself to make sure you will make the right choice, and buy a garage from the kind that you will be able to use for many years.
