Why are springs the #1 issue for garage doors?
Wondering why the springs are the most obnoxious thing to worry about? Because they’re beasts, that’s why. Here’s what we mean: Torsion springs carry a heavy burden. Located horizontally above your garage door opening, the springs use mechanical energy to unwind and bring your garage door up. We won’t go into the details of the physics behind what’s happening, but you don’t need a course on energy to understand that broken garage door springs are the result of all that weight wearing out your springs over time.
What are the signs that my springs needs replaced?
The signs are pretty obvious, which is helpful for you when troubleshooting the severity of your repair. Here’s what to expect:
- A loud noise. What you thought was a car backfiring may actually have been your garage door springs.
- A garage door that won’t open, or it won’t close.
- Springs that are older than 5 years. Springs certainly aren’t a lifelong friend. They have a lifespan, and once they’re over 5 years old, there’s a greater chance for them to wear out.
What to do if your springs break:
Don’t work on it yourself! Unless you’re a garage door geeky expert like us, steer clear. Your door could come crashing down with 200 pounds of weight on your toes if you’re not careful. Leave the garage door as is and call us immediately. We’ll help you get back up and running in no time.
An easy way to avoid broken garage door springs in the future:
Spring wear-outs are inevitable as we’ve mentioned, but there is something you can do to prolong the life of your garage door. First and foremost, the better the insulation, the better the temperature in your garage. The better the temperature, the less fluctuation between heat and cold air that will wear on your springs. That is a minor helpful note compared to this one: Keep your garage door springs lubricated. Like honey to a sore throat, a lubricant will coat your springs and give them an easier time moving.
