Broken Springs? Call a Garage Door Professional
Even if you fancy yourself a decent handyman, replacing your garage door springs definitely doesn’t fall under the DIY category. Designed to easily lift a door weighing hundreds of pounds, these springs are under an incredible amount of tension. If suddenly released, they can cause serious bodily injury and sometimes even death. Do yourself a favor and call a professional like El Dorado Hills Garage Door
The 2 Types of Springs on Your Garage Door
The two different types of springs on your garage door are the torsion spring, located just above the garage door, and the extension spring, located on the upper tracks on the sides of the door. If the spring is squeaky, you may be able to fix it with some lubrication. Always use a silicone lubricant and never WD40. If this doesn’t do the trick, give us a call. The sound could mean you have a serious problem developing that requires the expertise and equipment of a professional.
The Causes of Garage Spring Failure
There are multiple factors involved when it comes to broken springs. Springs have varying life spans ranging from a few thousand cycles to tens of thousands, depending on their quality. Besides age, rust is another possible cause. When your garage spring shows signs of failing, you should immediately contact a professional. Not only is there a risk of a garage door weighing hundreds of pounds falling, but severe bodily and property injury can occur.
