Re: New Garage Door Insulation? Materials?
I am confused as to why the spring itself can't just be replaced. I am also confused as to why the broken parts can't be repaired or replaced or fabricated anew at a fraction of the price of door replacement.
Secondly, even if the part is not included with a new torsion spring, and you can't buy just the broken part by itself, then what about having the existing one repaired or a new one fabricated? Look in the phone book for welding shops and machine shops and call around to see if this is something they could do.
Thirdly, I also assume that you can't work on the door yourself, which will relegate you to hiring someone to disassemble the broken parts, take them to wherever for repair or replacement, then reinstall them on the door. You might be able to find a door installer who will do this on the side or any handyman worth a hill of beans can do it.
