For most people, replacing garage door springs can be dangerous. Without the proper tools and safety equipment, it is not safe or practical. A garage door spring can severely injure a person due to its high level of torsion. In most cases, but not always, you have to replace the springs with the exact same size or the door will not balance properly. You also have to properly remove and re-install the torsion tube assembly and all its parts. And finally, you have to rewind the springs, which without the proper tools and experience, can be very dangerous and cause injury.

Please do not attempt a repair or replacement on your own springs without proper tools and knowledge. Give us a call and let our experienced garage door technicians do the job safely and correctly. We’ll do the work at a competitive price. In the end you’ll be glad you called Hutchins.

Garage Door Spring Replacement:

Over time, the springs in your garage door system will wear down and break. The function of springs is to balance the door which makes raising and lowering the door much easier. Most springs last about 10,000 cycles. Over time though, they weaken and will eventually break. When your garage door malfunctions, the springs are the part you’ll most often need to have replaced.

Garage door springs are under a lot of tension, which means repairing or replacing them puts you and your fingers in danger. Consider contracting an experienced pro when your garage door springs need repair or replacement. A pro will measure your existing door springs or weigh the door in order to be sure the replacement springs are the correct size. The technician will carefully unwind the existing springs to release the tension. They will then disassemble the system to install the new springs. After re-assembly, the new springs are then tightened with the proper tools to insure safety. The door is then balanced with the new springs, tightened down properly and lube thoroughly. Replacing garage door springs on residential or commercial doors can be a dangerous job, however the pros at Hutchins have the experience and equipment to do it safely and efficiently. Unless your springs need minor attention such as lubrication, be sure to call us to get a pro to perform your spring repair and replacement.

Garage Door Opener Repair:

One of the most common issues when your garage door opener stops operating is the alignment of the photo eyes. Other issues may be that the power source is disrupted or a remote/battery malfunction. Another common issue is worn gears in the operator and on the chain or belt rail. Sometimes it could as simple as adjusting the limit settings or the sensitivity of the opener. Other fixes may involve the opener’s circuit board, the motor, drive belts or limit switches. It could also be a broken door spring or cables which make the door too heavy for the operator to lift. A door off track or worn rollers can also make it difficult for the operator to pull the door open. Often it can be a simple adjustment and some openers may require new parts or a replacement. Hutchins service technicians are trained to identify the problem and address all your repair needs.

Garage Door Roller Replacement:

Rollers play a very important role in the garage door system. Many homes today have garage doors that struggle to go up and down due to worn out rollers and lack of maintenance. Poorly running garage door rollers can cause problems ranging from a door off track to prematurely wearing out drive gears, sprockets, and belts on your garage door opener. This usually leads to getting stuck in the garage at the worst possible time. Many entry level and contractor garage door rollers are made of plastic and a metal stem with no ball bearings. You can expect these rollers to last no more than 2 to 3 years before they need to be replaced. If you start to hear your rollers make a screeching or clicking sound, then it is time for an upgrade. Nylon ball bearing rollers is the way to go. At Hutchins Garage Doors the majority of roller replacement is done with super quiet nylon ball bearing closed end rollers. A good rule of thumb is to have your rollers replaced when you have your springs replaced. If your rollers have been replaced recently, then you should be fine. If you are purchasing a new garage door from Hutchins Garage Doors, you are getting the super quiet nylon long lasting rollers good for 10,000 + cycles. The cost difference is minimal during the ordering process, but it will have a big impact on the overall performance of your garage door and opener. Get your yearly maintenance done by a Hutchins pro and get your rollers updated to avoid bigger issue down the road.

Bent or Misaligned Door Tracks:

Is your door swaying back and forth when in motion? Is it jerking, bouncing and generally noisy when moving? You may have bent or misaligned garage door tracks. Ignoring the warning signs will lead to further damage and cause more costly repairs. It can happen over time that the garage door track becomes misaligned or bent accidentally. Hutchins can realign your track or replace it if needed.

Garage Door Panel Replacement:

Garage doors are susceptible to the natural weather elements and over time they will suffer from wear and tear. Occasionally you may need panel replacement when the door is accidentally hit or bent from impact. Cosmetics is the main reason why someone would request a replacement, but safety and door integrity may be more important. If a door panel is cracked it will eventually break. You will also want to replace panels like for like to ensure the proper fit in between the sections and safety of the door.

Call us at Hutchins Garage Doors to discuss your replacement options.

Garage Door Cable Repair:

The door cables carry the weight of the door and are under a lot of pressure. Cables do experience wear and tear just like all the other working parts or your garage door. Over time, the cables may stretch a bit, weaken, become frayed and snap. Sometimes cables have been completely unwound from the cable drums and will need to be reconnected. When cables break or come off the drums you will notice that your door becomes stuck or cocked to one side. If this is the case, do not attempt to repair unless you know what you are doing as these cables are under a lot of pressure. Most times, frayed and broken door cables can cause your garage door to become inoperable all together. For safety concerns you should have a pro technician such as the crew at Hutchins Garage Doors service your cable replacement needs.

WOW!!! What an amazing company! Hutchins was incredibly organized, thorough, and professional. We had them fabricate a wooden garage door for us, and the quality was superb, it could not have turned out better! If only more companies out there operated with their level of professionalism and expertise. In addition to running a great business, they also do their part to give back to the community. 5 really bright stars all around!

They helped tremendously - once some 7 years ago replacing the springs on my door (which are doing great), and more recently on New Years when my old opener gave out and I needed to be able to close the door, due to freezing temperatures. They showed up quickly, fixed it, then arranged to replace it a few days later. Service and communication were great and I highly recommend them!

Great customer service!!! We had major problems with one of our garage doors. I called them at 8 am and they came out by 9. Miguel came out same day to give me an estimate. I was for sure we needed a new door. Thankfully we didn’t and he came the very next day with materials to fix it. Very reasonable, trustworthy, and on time!!
