The hardest working parts of your garage door are the springs. These robust parts provide the control of both the raising and lowering of your garage door. As you might imagine, when one is damaged, your automatic garage door becomes unusable and potentially unsafe. To keep your garage door in good working order, it is important to inspect your springs on a regular basis.
Look for warning signs like:
- Rust on the springs or other moving parts
- Elongated or “stretched-out” springs
- How quickly (or slowly) your door is being raised
- The sound of your automatic garage door opener straining to open the door
If you find any of these things in your inspections it is time to consider garage door spring repair and replacement.
If you do find issues in your inspection, try this test. When your door is closed, try releasing the door from the automatic door opener and lifting the door manually. It should operate easily and securely and even remain perfectly in place when partially open since it will remain supported by properly working springs. If this is not the case, then it is definitely time to call STI Garage Door to get started on your garage door spring repair.

Once you contact STI Garage Door to schedule your garage door spring replacement service at your location, one of our professional technicians can usually accomplish the job in less than one hour assuming there are no other issues with your garage door system. We even offer 24/7 emergency services if needed.
