Broken garage door springs is an issue which is common among homeowners. It is important to note that replacing springs should be left to a professional garage door repair company. Tampering with the springs without any experience can cause the door to drop suddenly. Depending on the make and model, overhead doors can weigh somewhere between 125 and 350 pounds. If a garage door falls unexpectedly, it can not only cause damage to the property, but can also cause a serious injury to the person in the path.
Even if only one of the two springs are broken, it is important to replace both of them. It is very crucial to understand the severity of the danger involved with overhead door spring replacement. Let only a professional take care of this job. Try not to operate the door until a professional arrives.
Do Not Exert Force
No matter what issue your garage door is facing, it should never be opened with forces unless there is an emergency. Forcing a door can cause damage to the other parts, hardware as well as the garage door opener. These parts will need replacement, too, if they are damaged in any way. Your best bet is to call a garage door repair professional to perform these tasks. A professional will inspect the entire door during the spring replacement. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask the professional. An honest overhead door technicians will be able to address all your concerns.
Spring into Step
Springs are a very important component of a garage door. Their job is to counterbalance the weight of the door. This reduces the burden when the garage door is operating and makes the opening/closing mechanism easier and smoother. Since springs are under extreme tension, they are one of – if not the most – dangerous garage door components.
