GARAGE DOOR SPRING REPAIR

Garage doors may look light as a feather when they’re working properly. But once they get stuck, you can fully feel the heft of your door. At over 350 pounds, it can cause some serious problems if it’s not opening and closing properly. One of the most common causes of faulty garage doors is a broken garage door spring.

Torsion springs are designed to last for about 10,000 cycles, or about 10-12 years of normal use. After that, you are just waiting for an accident to happen. When a torsion spring breaks, you will often hear a loud cracking or pinging sound, but you may not notice it at all. You may simply notice that your garage door opens and closes much slower than before.

Torsion springs are the kind wound-up on a rod above the garage door opening. There are pairs of them, one on each side of the center of the door. When one breaks the other often follows. To save the cost of another service call, it’s always a good idea to have both replaced.

How Do Garage Door Springs Break?

Your extra-heavy garage door can be raised and lowered thanks to the power stored inside of springs. If your spring is located just behind the door, it begins to work as soon as the door is raised. They hold tension for the duration of the movement and help keep the door in place once it is up. The constant pressure from the door’s weight becomes a huge burden for the spring, and it will eventually fail.

If your garage door spring is located in the back of your garage, then it bears a large portion of the weight of the door every time the motor pulls the door up. The spring is pulled and extended every time the door is lowered. In both instances, the strain on the spring is substantial and slowly wears it out.
