What is Garage Door Spring Repair?
Garage door spring repair consists of replacing the torsion or extension springs that support the weight of your garage door. These springs work by retaining great amounts of tension and using torque rotation in order to support the weight of your garage door as it rises and lowers.
Extension springs will last up to 10,000 cycles and torsion springs up to 20,000 cycles, with a full cycle being a complete opening and closing. This lifespan equates to roughly seven to ten years for extension springs and 8-15 years for torsion springs. As the end of their lifespan approaches, you may notice that your garage door springs will become visibly less tight or more spread out along their support bar. You’ll want to call us soon for replacement services if these early signs become evident. Delaying garage door spring repair could lead to fractured and broken springs which could leave your garage door inoperable.
Signs You Need Garage Door Spring Repair
Garage door springs are one of the most vital elements of your garage door system. Chances are that you’re due for garage door spring repair if it’s already been a few years since your last spring replacement or initial garage door installation. As previously mentioned, extension garage door springs (the most common type of springs) are only built to withstand roughly 10,000 cycles of use. Proper maintenance can extend the life expectancy of your garage door springs to keep them in operable condition until that point.
Here are a few more indicators to consider when you think that garage door spring repair may be necessary:
- 3-4 inch gaps between your garage door springs
- You notice signs of rust or weathering
- You notice loud grinding or squeaking noises while your door is in operation
- Your garage door will not open or close properly
- Your garage door starts to open or close then reverses
- Your garage door opens diagonally
- Your garage door stops moving mid-cycle
- Your garage door is extremely heavy when lifting it manually
- Your garage door slams shut unexpectedly
- Your garage door springs are more elongated than normal
Garage Door Spring Repair Cannot Wait
If your garage door springs have become broken or damaged, do not wait to have them replaced. A broken garage door spring will cause additional damage to your garage door system. Other elements such as the garage door opener, cables, and chain or belt drive will be forced to overcompensate for the inoperable part and become worn down unnecessarily. What’s worse, you or your belongings can incur significant damage if repairs are delayed. Schedule your appointment with our Spring King’s experts today!
