THE $170 "STANDARD TORSION SPRING REPLACEMENT"
STANDARD TORSION SYSTEM
One of the most common garage door problems is a broken torsion spring. If your door wont go up, it's very likely have a broken torsion spring. That's where my $170 spring job deal comes into play. I will swap out 1 or 2 standard torsion springs (on one door) for $170. A standard torsion system (in my humble opinion) has 1 or 2 springs that do not exceed 262 wire gauge, not over 3 inches in diameter, and not over 4 feet long. The spring(s) is bound to a center plate and placed over the door on top a cylindrical tube (torsion tube), which extends to the circular drums and end bearing plates above the ends of the door. The drums hold the cables that connect to your doors bottom fixtures. If instead you have an extension spring system (springs above horizontal track with cables that are directed to the bottom fixtures by pulleys), don't worry, the spring job itself will still be $170. I do however recommend a torsion conversion if headroom permits on all extension spring systems ($349). Any of the parts previously mentioned also go bad and will be checked upon visit. Visit the "Repair" page for prices. If however you can't see any springs but have a tube above your garage door none the less, you most likely have a "Wayne Dalton Torque Master" system. If that't the case, I need to convert your system to a standard torsion system ($349).
