Garage Door Spring Repair
We Fix Garage Door Springs With Guaranteed Results
Garage door springs are one of the essential parts of your door. They help keep the door open and close the door automatically. Broken springs can be dangerous as they may cause your garage door to fall when opened or closed by hand.
Replacing garage door springs might look easy for some. However, in reality, it can be pretty dangerous and a daunting task. Also, replacing springs can damage other parts of the door easily. Some spring models have two or more coils, each with a different tension level. When one coil snaps, you need to adjust the other ones properly before fixing the snapped coil.

How To Identify A Spring Problem?
In addition to the common problem of broken springs, there could be other issues with your garage door as well.
To help you out, here are some symptoms that might indicate a spring problem:
1. Excessively noisy operation or squeaking
2. Door makes thumping sounds when closed
3. Door opening too fast and too slow
Signs of Bad springs - Squeaking, Sagging, And Sticking
Consider changing the springs if you notice that your garage door makes squeaking sounds when opened or closed. It may also indicate that your springs are worn out. The garage door may become very heavy to open and close. If there is sagging on one side of the door, this could signify that your springs are worn out and may require immediate replacement.
Another sign of bad springs is that the door fails to close all the way. The spring tension could be too low, which could cause the garage door to fail to go down or up without assistance from a person. A spring problem may also display itself as your garage door sticking halfway while opening or closing.
Causes Of Damaged Springs
There are multiple causes for damaged springs. One of the most common reasons is that they are worn out, which means you need to change them. If not correctly maintained, damaged or broken springs can also affect the other components such as cables and rollers. Another reason could be because of debris in the spring—this may cause it to break.
Another common cause of springs breaking is improper installation. If the spring was not installed correctly or put under tension while being installed, this could lead to the spring snapping. It might also cause other parts of your garage door to break down as well.
How To Prevent Damage To Garage Door Springs?
To prevent damage to garage door springs, you need to be very careful in the way they are installed. It would be best if you also kept them lubricated so that there is no friction among the inner layers of the coils. The springs should not be coiled at a high tension level; otherwise, they might snap under pressure. When your spring breaks, replacing it as soon as possible is the best way to prevent your garage door from falling or causing potential injuries.
