Your springs are essential when it comes to moving your door every day. They take the load of the door itself and do all the heavy lifting - without them, your door isn’t going anywhere. As you’d expect from parts that bear such a lot of strain, they’re built to last. However, they only have a limited lifespan, and will eventually need to be replaced.
When Is It Time To Replace?
Garage door springs will eventually wear out to the point that they break. Not only does this put your door out of commission until they’re replaced, but it’s also dangerous for anyone in the area when they finally do break. We strongly recommend replacing your springs before they reach this point, if at all possible.
What Should You Watch Out For?
Springs often give out warning signs when they’re starting to fail. As they lose strength, they often cause your door to wobble when in motion. Other common signs are noisy operation, or a door that can’t support its own weight. If your door is exhibiting any of these signs it’s time to call in our team of professional technicians.
Can I Fix It Myself?
If you aren’t a trained professional, it’s very dangerous to work with garage door springs. These parts are under enormous pressure, and if they’re not handled safely this tension can be released as kinetic energy, causing the spring to whip loose. If your springs have broken, or if you’re concerned that they might be wearing out, we strongly encourage you to contact us.
