Broken Spring Repair
Your garage door spring is essential to your door opening and closing. Every garage door spring has a limited lifespan which is measured in cycles. A "cycle" is one full opening and closing action with 10,000 cycles as the industry standard minimum. The average spring breaks about every 7 to 12 years with average usage. Once your spring has reached its lifespan, it will lose all tension and no longer function properly.
Garage Door Spring Types
Your garage door spring is an important part of your garage door. It is what helps the door to lift easily. Without it the door would be much heavier and possibly not open at all. While there are several options for springs, extension springs and torsion springs are the most popular. Extension Springs are located along each side of the garage door. The safety cable runs through the center of the spring to control the extension spring should it break. Torsion Springs are located horizontally across the entire width of the door. If a torsion spring breaks, these cables lose their tension.
Garage Door Spring Replacement & Installation
Garage door springs should only be installed by a trained professional. With the extreme tension of these springs, replacement is dangerous. Without the proper tools and training, not only can your door and opener be damaged but more importantly it can cause physical harm to the DIY installer.
