When your garage door refuses to budge, the culprit might just be a sneaky broken spring. Think of springs as the unsung heroes of your garage door system - they do all the heavy lifting so you don't have to. But when they snap, it's game over for easy lift-offs and gentle landings. If you encounter a broken spring don't hesitate to give us a call, Authentic Garage Door Repair at your service.
Average garage door springs are like marathon runners with a finite number of races in them. They're designed to stretch and contract smoothly up to a certain point, usually around 10,000 cycles. Every open and close counts as one cycle. So if you're coming and going twice a day, expect those springs to start feeling their age after about seven years.The thing is, wear isn't always even between the two types of springs on your door: torsion and extension. Torsion springs do more heavy lifting; hence they might call it quits sooner than their extension counterparts which assist in guiding the door smoothly.
If your morning was ruined by a loud bang from the garage that wasn’t caused by last night’s leftovers exploding in an old fridge out there – chances are it was a spring giving way under pressure. Boy, that racket sure does leave a mark on your day. Another telltale sign is if your garage door opens only partially or not at all with assistance from its opener because now that crucial counterbalance is gone.You might also notice gaps between coils or sagging sections where tension has been lost altogether; both clear indicators that something's amiss in Springville (or should we say 'spring-less-ville'). And let’s not forget uneven lifting where one side seems lazier than another due possibly to uneven tension across twin set-ups commonly found in residential doors today.
Tackling broken spring repair solo lands squarely in "bad idea" territory unless you moonlight as a professional strongman who specializes in precision mechanical repairs on weekends...which most people don’t. Without proper tools or know-how, Consumer Product Safety Commission reports suggest injuries ranging from minor bruises to serious harm could occur trying to fix these high-tension components yourself.
