Wayne Dalton Torquemaster Conversion
The Wayne Dalton spring system is very popular in the Heritage Lakes and Audie Murphy Ranch communities here in Menifee.
They are a contractors delight because they are very cheap and quick to install.
Even the tracks snap together.
Usually they use a very cheap Genie and naturally the styrofoam doors.
When the springs break I recommend changing them out to a professional spring system that will last decades.
Not another Torque Master system that may last only 3 years.
The reason why the Wayne Dalton Torquemaster springs break so quickly is because they can't use much metal.
If you cut open the tube you'll find they use coils that are only .125 inches thick.
I replace the Wayne Dalton system with springs that are .207 inches thick.
That extra metal extends the life to over 80,000 cycles on a 7' high door.
Theoretically that mean 80 years of life.
I warranty the springs on a 7' high door for 15 years instead of 80 because some people use their doors much more than the average user.
I charge $375 to convert a Wayne Dalton Torquemaster system to a professional torsion spring system with a 15 year warranty on 7' doors or 8 years on 8' doors.
The following are included assuming it is a 7' high door.
• Two 80,000 cycle @ 7' or 40,000 cycle @ 8' external professional torsion springs replace the two internal Wayne Dalton springs.
• New cables
• New center plate
• New end bearing plates
• New tube
• New center spacer.
