Signs That Your Garage Door Spring May Need to Be Replaced

Your garage will give you various warning signs that you need to book for garage door spring repair. Once you experience these scenarios, give us a call.

  • The springs should be one piece.

When there are separated coils and portions in the cable rod, book a garage door spring replacement. Broken garage door springs can’t support the weight of the door.

  • The garage door lifts but doesn’t open all the way

Because there is a lack of force from broken springs, the door doesn’t open all the way towards the overhead tracks.

  • Heavy door panels

Heavy door panels indicate the lack of support from the springs. As the primary source of the force that lifts the panels, other parts will compensate for moving the door panels, resulting in heavier slabs.

  • Loose cables or damaged cables

Most of the time, damaged springs will result in damaged garage door cables in the short run. As the cable wears out from carrying the panels, damages will become more apparent in the cable drum.

Our Garage Door Spring Repair Best Practices

Getting the right company to repair your spring is essential. The goal is to have long-lasting repairs to avoid potential injuries and damages in the garage. Companies that practice safety measures can help you lessen or prevent spring replacement costs by using only the best springs for the job.

Replacing Both Springs

Most garages operate with a two-spring system garage door. It’s necessary to replace both springs even if only one has damage. With two new springs, you’re sure that both sides are in balance. If you don’t replace both springs, one of the springs will be stronger than the other (the old one will lose some tension) and this will make the garage door come off its track.

Using the Right Springs

Using high-quality springs can last your garage door against frequent spring replacements for a long time. If you want to have high-cycle mechanisms that will last years, don’t use low-quality springs in your service.

Safety Inspection

Inspection is essential to assess the condition of all parts in the garage. Some services will only guarantee the replacement; A good company cares and will check your garage for potential concerns. In this manner, you have some idea about the condition of your entire garage rather than getting surprises in a few months that another part needs repair.

Types of garage door springs

There are two main types of springs you can install and use for the garage.

Extension Spring

Extension springs use tension force to keep lift and lower the sectionals in the track. The tension springs stretch to give tension that helps the door panels move or stay in place.

Torsion Spring

Torsion springs use torque and rotate about their axis to provide the force necessary to lift the door panels. Torsion springs are on top of the door frame.

Extension vs Torsion Springs, Which Is Better?

You may start to wonder about which spring is better for a garage. Torsion springs are generally better and safer inside the garage. These springs last longer than extension springs since they don’t stretch every use, which causes faster wear out.
