3 Reasons Why Avoiding Galvanized Springs is Smart

by Howard Haas on Apr 21, 2014

Beauty shouldn't concern you when your safety is at stake! That's a fact for all things in life and especially when it comes to garage door systems. You might invest in beautiful door panels but if it is time to choose garage door springs, you should select them in terms of their strengths. Springs will lift and lower the door with safety and if they are weak enough, they won't do their job properly or at least for as long as they are supposed to.

garage door repair TorontoGalvanized garage door torsion springs were produced over a decade ago in an effort to leave behind the dirt coming from regular springs. Ordinary springs would erode easier in high moisture regions and that didn't seem very convenient for homeowners, who were called to replace them. Though, soon enough people realized that galvanized springs were not the solution to their problem.

Oil-tempered springs are much stronger

It's not surprising that people started investing in the old, good oil-tempered garage door springs once more. Once they made an attempt to try out galvanized ones, they got disappointed right away and for three main reasons.

  1. Once installed galvanized springs had to be maintained in just six months. That was outrageous for homeowners, who weren't used in such frequent services. The problem was that every time tension was added to the spring, they would lose some of their power. They actually needed maintenance at least every month and thus they raised enormously the cost of garage door maintenance for people.
  2. Galvanized springs are great in appearance but they are not as

    strong as oil tempered springs. The wires of the latter ones are heated and heated again in very high temperatures and that's why they can endure bad weather and longtime use before they start showing signs of wear. Galvanized springs are more delicate and, thus, they won't last as long as the other springs. They will be relatively weak and while homeowners will expect them to last for the usual ten thousand cycles, they will snap sooner and probably unexpectedly.
  3. Due to their reduced strengths, galvanized garage door springs will need to be replaced much sooner than anticipated. So, the expense for solely these parts will be greater in the long run. Although, oil tempered torsion springs are a tad more expensive than galvanized ones, they are worth their cost. They are resistant and strong and they won't need replacement or snap fast. In fact, Homeland garage door repair insists that oil tempered springs are now painted and so they don't leave grime and dirt in the hands and area. After all, galvanized springs will cost almost the same, will still need lubrication maintenance and they won't last for long. Why invest in them!
