This garage door repair in Hastings involved a very old Cardale garage door. It had a spring type that was unique to Cardale garage doors. Instead of one lock torsion spring above the garage door, this spring is contained within a round metal drum. Inside the drum is a flat metal clock type spring. Because the spring is largely concealed, it is very hard to lubricate and therefore lifting the garage door can be very jerky and very noisy. As this spring had broken internally, it could not be repaired and needed to be replaced. The original clock type spring is no longer available but an alternative from another manufacturer does the job admirally. Once fitted the spring lifts the garage door quietly and smoothly.
