The springs in your garage door are among the most important parts of the whole system. Without them, the door as a whole would be unable to operate; these springs are responsible for taking all the weight of the door as it moves up and down.
Why Do These Parts Need Replacing?
Garage door springs often require replacing simply because they wear out. Although they’re designed to be long-lasting and durable, a typical household’s door might be used more than a thousand times a year. Over time, the continuous strain on these springs means they start to lose strength and can eventually give out altogether.
What Signs Should You Look For?
A spring that’s beginning to wear out often gives out warning signs. If you find that your door is working noisily or slowly, or if your door wobbles and can’t support its own weight, your springs might be in need of replacement.
What Happens If They Break?
When a spring fails altogether, it suddenly releases the load it’s holding. This means that your door may simply fall to the floor, the counterweight will be released and the spring itself may well whip free. This is dangerous for anyone in the area, and we strongly advise against trying to repair or replace your garage door springs without the services of our professional technicians.
