Do You Have A Broken Garage Door Spring on your Austin Texas or Travis County Home?
Here is what you need to know about replacing garage door torsion springs on a residential garage door. There are many garage door repair companies operating in the Austin, TX area that will replace your garage door springs, but what many consumers don’t know (and most repair companies won’t tell you) is that there are actually many different makes and models of torsion springs.
What does this mean to you? Well, to the average consumer, a torsion spring is a torsion spring is a torsion spring as long at it makes the garage door open and close properly, most customers don’t really care. But they should! While the torsion spring your repair guy provides might fit on your garage door, it doesn’t mean they are all top quality, yet you’ll probably get billed just the same as if it were. If it’s your garage door, and you’re the one paying for the replacement parts wouldn’t you want the better product?
The typical spring that many of our competitors are selling to Austin homeowners is a 10,000 cycle spring. This means that every time the garage door goes up and down, it’s considered a complete cycle. The average low-quality torsion spring will only last 7-10 years (or earlier) before it’s going to have a high likelihood of failure.
Aladdin Doors of Austin is the only garage door repair company in Austin to carry a 100,000 cycle torsion spring for residential garage door systems. The 100,000 cycle torsion springs come with a lifetime warranty for 7 foot doors and a 10 year warranty for garage doors that are 8 feet high and above.
When we install one of our 100,000 cycle springs in our customers garage’s there is a good change that”ll be the last garage door spring they will ever have to replace on that door.
If you look at the math – 365 days a year times 20 years = 7,300. Now if divide 100,000 by 7,300 and you’ll see that you could use your garage door 13 times a day for 20 years before you’d get close to needing to replace our 100,000 cycle spring.
The competition may give a lifetime warranty on their 10,000 cycle garage door spring but they’re usually betting (hoping) you’ll forget their phone number or move out of the area long before it breaks, not Aladdin Doors of Austin. If you’re like us and you buy something with a lifetime warranty you don’t want to have to call anyone back for a really long time (probably never!) and with a 10,000 spring you might be calling back in 3 to 4 years if it’s cheap and poor quality.
Not only will our springs last 7 to 10 times longer than the average torsion spring but we’ll place a highly visible sticker on your door or near the wall button to ensure you have our contact information should you need to call us in the future.
Our customers often ask us if they can buy the replacement springs and do the work themselves. You can only get our springs, if we install them on your garage door. This is the only way our rock-solid lifetime warranty can apply.
