The springs in your door do all the heavy lifting. These heavy-duty torsion or extension springs are responsible for taking the load whenever your door opens or closes, and without them, your door will become unable to move. They’re tough and built to last, but they will wear out and fail with time - when this happens, it’s essential to have them replaced quickly by a professional.
Why Do Springs Fail?
Springs can break for any number of reasons, but the most common problem is sheer wear and tear. With a typical door utilized more than a thousand times per year, these springs are being worked very hard. As they stretch and compress time and time again they gradually lose strength and need to be replaced.
What Signs Should I Watch For?
As a spring begins to lose strength, it will often give out warning signs. If you find that your door is making a lot of noise as it moves, if the door moves jerkily, or if it can’t support its own weight, your springs might well be in need of professional attention.
What Should I Do Next?
A garage door spring that’s failing can be very dangerous. If the spring breaks entirely it can suddenly drop the door and can even whip loose. Because of this, we strongly recommend that homeowners don’t try and handle the springs themselves - our professionals are always ready to safely handle this process.
