A lot of Garage Door Repairs happen without any kind of notice and can really screw up your whole day. Garage Door Repair Company always guarantees same day service on any repairs; in Stillwater, MN we had a customer’s torsion spring break and they could not get out of their Garage’s second stall.

Torsion Springs are rated in cycles and both doors had been installed at the same time so we knew that the springs on the main door could go at any point and rather than wait and have another inconvenience we were able to solve that problem before it ever happened and now this customer won’t have to wonder if their Garage Door will break down any time soon.

Torsion Conversion in Woodbury, MN

Garage Door Torsion Conversion Process

When you buy a brand new home that was just built within the last few years you are thinking that everything should be working properly for years to come because you bought brand new. However, many of our customers are finding that in these new neighborhoods the builders may have tried to cut costs on the little things such as the Spring System for your Garage Door. In Woodbury, MN we found an entire neighborhood that was built by the same building company and they cut corners on every Garage with a sub-par spring system that has a lot of cheap and plastic parts. While this system will work for a few years, when it does break down the cost of repair can be outrageous because it requires replacing the entire system or performing a Torsion Conversion.

What is a Torsion Conversion?

There are a lot of different types of systems that can be used for your Garage Door; extension springs, torque master, easy wind, roll up springs, and a standard torsion system. At Garage Door Repair Company we can provide repairs or replacements for all of these systems but the most recommended system is a standard torsion system. The benefit of this system is that if something breaks you only need to repair that component rather than having to replace the whole system. Here are some components that go in to a standard torsion system:

  • Steel Shaft
  • Steel Drums
  • End Bearings/Center Bearing
  • Center Plate
  • Torsion Springs
  • Galvanized Cables

All of our technicians will have all of these components on the truck to help solve any of your Garage Door Repair needs.

Choosing the Right System First

The biggest reason to choose the right system first is for cost; it can be very expensive to convert or replace your system. That’s why we always install standard torsion systems with every new Garage Door we install. You may not always be able to choose what system you end up with when you purchase a new home but Garage Door Repair Company will help keep your system going or make sure you have the right system for the future.
