Signs That Your Garage Door Spring May Need to Be Replaced
Automatic garage doors require regular inspection and maintenance. If you’re having trouble operating your garage door, a broken garage door spring is likely the cause.
The springs should be on piece.
If your springs have snapped into two, you might experience difficulty in operating your garage door, or your door may not even move at all. Thus, you need to replace your spring with a new one.
The garage door will not open or might lift a few feet and go back down.
If you’re operating your garage door and cannot open it completely, you might have a broken garage door spring. Assuming that your garage door torsion springs are damaged, call a technician for a garage door spring repair.
The garage door is so heavy when trying to life it manually.
You may have a broken spring system when you find it impossible to raise your garage door manually. Since the spring is responsible for lifting the overall weight of your door, your garage door will become heavy to lift if this part is damaged.
The cables on the side become unwound.
If you notice that your cables are either slack or loose, then your garage door will have a hard time functioning. Loose cables are usually an indication of a broken garage door spring.
Our Garage Door Spring Repair Has The Best Practices
You need to choose a reliable company that implements best practices. A company that prioritizes the quality of its work guarantees you that your springs will last for a long time. By installing your garage door spring properly, you won’t be at risk of any injury, and you can save money in the long run.
Replacement of Both Springs
If your garage door is a two spring system, a good company will replace both springs, even if only one is damaged. That’s because these springs work together. If you only replace one, this spring will be stronger than the other. Consequently, your door will lift unbalanced when you operate it.
Using the Right Garage Door Springs
At Express Garage Door Repair, we offer a diverse range of springs that can match any door. We use high-quality and high-cycle garage door springs that last for many years and around 10,000 cycles. We will find the correct springs for your garage door and install them properly.
Before repairing or replacing parts of any garage door, our team starts the job with a thorough safety inspection. This step is to ensure that all the hardware and components on the garage door are in good working condition.
Types of Garage Door Springs
The extension springs are cheaper, and they are usually found in older garage doors. This type of spring is located on both sides of the cables and automatic doors.
The torsion springs are a modern spring system. This spring is centrally wound around the torsion tube mounted on the interior header of your garage door opening.
Extension Springs VS Torsion Springs, Which Is Better?
The torsion spring is a newer and much better system than extension springs because they are much safer and more durable.
Replacing Extension Springs with Torsion
You can always upgrade your extension springs with torsion springs to make your garage door safer to operate. Since replacing springs on your own can be dangerous, you should call you technician to replace your extension springs with torsion springs professionally.
What Not to Do After the Springs Break
If you notice that you have a broken garage door spring, you need to take the issue seriously. You can get injured if you continue to use your door. You can also cause more damage to your garage door and make the problem worse. Thus, you shouldn’t operate your door when your springs break and call your technician immediately.
The Dangers of Replacing the Garage Door Springs Yourself
Replacing parts of the garage door by yourself is very dangerous. Note that springs have high tension, so if they suddenly break, your door will crash down.
We recommend that you leave the job to the garage door experts to prevent unnecessary accidents.
