Know When Garage Door Spring Replacement is Required08/23/2014 Back To Blog
Garage door maintenance is important to always have a smooth-running door but if this is not done, there is a big chance that it will malfunction and may cause harm to you or anyone else in the family. It is a very heavy machine that has different parts, which are working together to make its mechanism function perfectly. If one part is broken, all the others will not work properly.
Garage door springs are parts that need to be inspected and maintained. There are two types of springs and both are necessary to make your door function well. Torsion spring is the one mounted on the header above the door and the extension spring is the one located on each side of the door and stretched on an overhead track. You must know when it is time to get it replaced.
If symptoms persist, get a spring replacement done
When you hear a squeaking or any irritating noise, lubrication may be done first but if it did not work, there is a big chance that the spring is broken. If in case one spring is already worn out, get both springs replaced since the one that is not broken may break soon enough because it was overworked when the other was no longer functioning. Another sign that you should consider is when you feel that the door is not balanced and not moving smoothly. Your spring may also be out of balance and since the mechanism of the door is not normal, the spring may already be defective. It is best to get a garage door spring replacement done as soon as possible to prevent danger. Spring brackets works hand in hand with the spring itself so if the brackets are broken, the spring will be affected and may also be worn out. Remember that it is not safe to handle any replacement on your own so get our well-trained technicians to handle it for you.
