Garage Door Opener Frequently Q&As - Bayside

Garage door opener FAQs


What type of garage door opener do I need?

When you are selecting a garage door opener for your home or business, you have a operating mechanism to choose from. Each type of opener uses a motor to move a trolley along the rail, which lifts the door.

  • Belt drive: A belt drive uses a steel-reinforced rubber belt to lift and lower the garage door, allowing it to run quietly and smoothly. If you have living quarters above the garage, a belt drive is a smart choice.

Full Glass Garage Door Installation in New Hyde Park

When it comes to sleek, contemporary styles, the full-view garage door is a staple on many home exteriors.  The large glass panels on an aluminum-frame garage door allow for plenty of natural light, taking the warm glow of sunlight from outside and bringing it into your garage.  If privacy is an important factor based on your home’s design, no worries – glass options are available to offer the right light transmission and obscurity to meet your needs.

The smooth design of these doors are also built to last, with rust-proof and corrosion resistant metal. If you prefer a design that does not include glass panels, solid aluminum panels are also available to provide the modern style you seek with maximum privacy. 

This durable door is the perfect choice to modernize any home; transforming not only garages, it can also be used as an indoor partition. Paint or powder-coated frame finishes in solid colors are offered, giving you the opportunity to make your door complement the tones of your home’s exterior.

Garage Door Spring Replacement Astoria 11101, 11102, 11103, 11104, 11105, 11106

Garage door springs counteract the force of gravity to ease the process of opening or closing your garage door. Springs are kept under constant tension to help reduce the weight of the garage door, making it easier for mechanical or manual opening and closing. However, this constant strain takes a toll on the springs, and over time, they may become worn down. When this happens, it is essential to contact your team of professional garage door technicians from H&O Garage Door Spring Replacement Astoria. Our team can diagnose and solve your issue with exceptional garage door spring replacement services.

Types of Garage Door Springs

Depending on the age and how your garage door was installed after the original purchase, your garage door will either have torsion or extension garage door springs. Here is more information on the two types of springs:

Torsion Garage Door Springs

Torsion springs are typically mounted above the door, though on older homes they could be mounted to the rear of the garage to take up less space. (This is known as a rear-mounted torsion.) A torsion spring’s job is to help balance the door, allowing it to open and close with the same amount of pressure and reduce the risk of placing too much strain on the opener.

How Does It Work?

Torsion springs are placed above the door with a metal tube running through the center that has drums on either side of the tubing. When the garage door is closed, the drums move with the cables connected to the bottom of the door to wind the springs back up, creating stored energy. As the garage door opens, the springs unwind, releasing the energy and allowing the garage door to open. As the door rolls overhead to the opening position, the spring unwinds, losing power and strain until it is needed again. The rate at which this process happens is known as inches pounds per turn (IPPT).

Spring Warranty

Spring Warranty

IPPT is based on the height and weight of the door along with the radius of the tracks and drums. If your garage door is properly balanced, then the springs should last a household up to 10,000 open and close cycles.

The lifespan of a torsion spring can be anywhere from 3 to 5 years depending on maintenance and how many open and close cycles you are using per day. (If you are using your garage door more than 4 times a day, the life expectancy will decrease due to the amount of strain being put on the springs. This could result in your torsion spring having a lifespan of 2-3 years.)

Extension Springs

Extension springs can be mounted horizontally running from the back of the garage door track to the front. They operate by pulling the garage door upwards against the force of gravity to support the weight. This is accomplished thanks to a pulley system. The pulley system allows the springs to stretch as the door closes, allowing the door to gradually close instead of slamming down.

Extension springs can last a homeowner anywhere from 7 to 9 years and their life expectancy can either be extended or lessened depending on how much you use your garage door.

How Do I Know When My Springs Need Adjustments?

You should always have your springs inspected/rebalanced at least once a year. This helps ensure that your garage door springs are strong enough to continue operating correctly. However, inclement weather , overuse, and age can negatively affect your garage door spring, making it necessary to call in help for adjustments or a replacement, if the springs are damaged. The dedicated team of garage door technicians at H&O Garage Door can help you — literally — get your garage door back on track. Here are some of the signs for which to look:

Torsion Springs Damage Symptoms

It is extremely important to rebalance your torsion springs 2 years after installation. Rebalancing helps ensure that your garage door springs are still set in the correct position to accommodate the weight of your garage door after they have settled.

If your garage door is not staying in place when you open or close it, this could be an indication that your springs are beginning to fail. A failing garage door spring needs to be rebalanced to ensure that the garage door will not suddenly slam down when released from the opener.

Extension Springs

Extension springs are a bit easier to tell whether or not they need to be replaced. Visually inspect your garage door springs. If you notice any gaps within the coils, this is a strong indicator that the spring itself is weakening and needs to either be replaced.

If you have an older home with one-piece garage doors, we recommend investing in a door replacement with new torsion springs. One-piece garage doors were found to be dangerous and are no longer being manufactured. Our team can give you a free estimate on a garage door replacement and can install a beautiful and safe new garage door and springs that will last your family for years to come.
