Is your garage door spring broken? Gulliver Garage Doors Ltd offers spring repair and replacement services to both residential and commercial garage doors owners in Red Deer.
Spring replacement is one of the most common garage door repairs. These springs come in different sizes, and provide balance and lift to an overhead door. Springs along with the assistance of an opener make the mechanism of opening/closing the door easy.

Get Your Garage Door Repairs From a Red Deer Professional
Gulliver Garage Doors Ltd values and respects DIY enthusiasts, which is why we offer technical support to anyone having questions or concerns regarding their overhead door or opener. However, when it comes to broken springs, we highly encourage having a professional resolve the problem for your own safety and to make sure the job gets done right the first time.
There are several types of garage door springs. The most common ones are:
Torsion Springs: These standard springs are used throughout the garage door industry. They work under an extreme tension, and can cause severe, sometimes life-threatening injuries to those unfamiliar with them. It is important to follow certain precautions when replacing the torsion springs, which is why Gulliver recommends homeowners to contact professionals to repair broken springs.
Extension Springs: These springs offer counterbalance to the weight of the garage door. They are located above the horizontal tracks, and tend to stretch or compress, as the door travels.
