Garage door springs are essential components in any automated door system. This is because they work hard to keep your doors properly balanced and play an integral role in keeping the door properly supported to the frame of your automatic setup. Typically these springs are installed in pairs on opposite ends of the door, and so both springs should always be in great condition for your doors to operate effectively and safely. Unfortunately, they are not built to last forever. The stress under which they operate and the decaying forces of weathering and wearing which they are subjected to does mean that they will weaken over time. When this happens, it is best to have them replaced as soon as possible.
Damage to springs can come from a variety of sources depending on the conditions that they operate under. Galvanic corrosion from other metals, rust and decay from harsh weather conditions and simple wear from the stress of your door’s operations are but a few. Since these springs are supposed to operate in tandem to share equal parts of your door’s weight, operating them with only a single spring installed often also leads to damages on the remaining one, and will even begin to wreak havoc on your door as it slowly but surely misaligns itself. So even when just one of them fails, it is best to have your springs replaced as soon as you can.
Fortunately, having a broken door spring repaired or replaced doesn’t have to be a big deal, or one that eats into your budget. Regardless of what type of doors you have, or their condition, calling for a technician to handle the problem for you is not only advisable for the longevity of your doors and openers, but is also essential for ensuring that it is properly supported and balanced for safe use.Back To Our Services
