HOME OWNER Q & A
A garage door is basically a moving wall. It is the largest moving object in your home and one of the objects with the greatest potential to injure a family member or damage your property. Obviously, an improperly installed, badly worn, or broken garage door system exerts tremendous force when the door closes. Take this decision seriously and choose a company with experience.

WHEN SHOULD MY SPRINGS BE REPLACED?
Your garage door’s springs are arguably the most important and most dangerous part of your door. Springs wear out over time. Most springs are rated for about 10,000 cycles. Precision Garage Door of Johnson City installs only the highest quality springs that are rated for up to 60,000 cycles. When springs break, injury can result. If you have an older garage door, have your springs inspected by a professional technician and replaced if needed. If your door has two springs, a trained service technician should replace both, even if one is not broken. This will not only prevent any damage caused by the breaking of the second spring, but also keep your door working efficiently. Remember, springs are under very high tension, and adjustment or repair should only be performed by a garage door professional.
WHEN SHOULD MY CABLES BE REPLACED?
Visually inspect the cables that attach the spring system to the bottom brackets on both sides of the door. If these cables are frayed or worn, they are in danger of breaking, which can cause injury. Due to the dangers associated with high spring tension, these cables should be replaced only by a trained technician.
MY SPRINGS ARE SQUEAKY. DO THEY NEED TO BE REPLACED?
WHAT OTHER DANGERS SHOULD I BE AWARE OF?
MY DOOR SEEMS TO STRUGGLE TO GET UP AND DOWN. WHAT SHOULD I DO?
If your door does not go up and down smoothly, it may be in an unsafe condition. Even older door systems should operate smoothly. If the awkward operation continues when the door is manually operated, you may have a spring system that is out of balance. This can cause premature wear and tear on other important door components, as well as your garage door opener. Spring systems are dangerous and should be repaired only by trained professionals.
CAN I USE THE OLD TRACK WITH MY NEW DOOR?
I WANT TO INSTALL A NEW GARAGE DOOR BY MYSELF. IS THAT A GOOD IDEA?
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I HAVE MY GARAGE DOOR SERVICED?
WHY DOES MY EXTENSION SPRING SYSTEM NEED SAFETY CABLES?
If your garage door has extension springs, you need a safety cable that runs through the spring and secures to the wall or ceiling at each end. When your garage door is down, extension springs are under high tension. If the spring breaks, it may cause injury or damage to property. A safety cable can keep that broken spring contained. If you have extension springs but do not have a safety cable, call your local dealer for a safety inspection.
WHAT ARE TAMPER RESTRAINT BRACKETS?
Since the bottom brackets on a garage door are connected to the door’s springs, these brackets are under extreme tension. They should be adjusted or loosened only by a trained door systems technician. Many manufacturers now include tamper resistant hardware that prevents loosening of the brackets by a novice.
