Installation Using 32″ Radius Tracks

This customer wanted to make the stairs going up to his attic fully useable, but the tracks of his old garage door were in the way. He was also concerned about people in his family using the stairs and touching the extension spring that was there previously.

Doors Done Right installed 32″ radius tracks (instead of the standard 12″ radius tracks) giving much more headroom to people walking up the stairs. We also installed a new torsion spring system to replace the old extension springs. This provided for proper functioning of the 32″ radius track system, and eliminated the hazards of loaded extension springs being right alongside the stairs.

Why You Shouldn’t Buy Your Garage Door Springs from a Big Box Store

We were called out to do a garage door repair in Princeton, NJ. The homeowner had a handyman replace 4 springs on his 2 doors “no more than a year and a half ago.” The handyman used springs that were too small for the door. That’s not surprising.

What is surprising is that one of his springs broke after less than a year and a half!

We are used to seeing garage door springs (and other parts) from the big guys go after just a few years. But this is the first time we’ve seen a spring break this quickly.

Big box stores seem to have no issue sacrificing quality for cost savings – especially in areas where the customer might not know the difference. Small cost-savings are acceptable to them, even if the difference in quality is huge. Parts manufactured with low quality recycled materials contain impurities that compromise their structural integrity.

Your garage door springs are under a lot of tension and when they break, they are dangerous. Using inferior quality springs is a major safety issue.
