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 door becomes unusable and potentially unsafe. To keep it in good working order, it is important to inspect your springs on a regular basis.
Look for warning signs like:
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 us to get started on your garage door spring repair.
