Call a Professional to Fix Broken Springs
The torsion springs on your garage door provide the counterbalance against the weight of the door. Like anything else in this world including ourselves, torsion springs are subject to wear and tear and will eventually need to be replaced, generally every 30 years or so. They are under an incredible amount of tension and can cause serious bodily harm or even death if suddenly released. Garage doors cause about 30,000 accidents every year, so it’s not a job to take lightly. Repairing the springs takes an expert to do so safely .
All torsion springs have their own cycle rating. Most springs come with a cycle rating of 10,000. Over the last several years, manufacturers have pushed the number up to 33,000.
Replace both springs if both are sufficiently worn. Chances are they were installed at the same time. If one is broken the other won’t be too far behind. Replace both outright and save yourself time and money.
Do Your Garage Springs Need a Tune-Up?
Don’t wait for broken springs. We can inspect your parts for signs of corrosion or other factors that may lead to breakage. Regular maintenance of springs can increase their lifespan and may prevent damage that otherwise would have occurred if they were neglected. Frequent inspections allow your garage to stay safe and reliable for years to come.
