Garage Door Spring Repair Recommendations

There are many garage doors, from roll-up sectional to swing up and down. They come in many sizes and shapes, from a 16×7 two-car garage to a single 8×7 car garage. Some have multiple panels; some are single-size. They can also be metal or wood and have custom windows, locks, and security accessories. However, one thing they all have in common is how they operate and the mechanical parts involved in making the magic happen, including the need for occasional garage door repair.

Broken torsion springs: this is the most common garage door repair. On average, a garage door spring has a life span of 8-12 years, depending on the manufacturer and the quality of the spring. Some garage doors come with one large torsion spring or two on each side, making four springs. It is never recommended for anyone to attempt the repair without the experience and proper tools of a professional like Tarrant County Door and Gate. If this is attempted, you are running a high risk of injury to your hand and fingers. Trust me, it is not worth it. (Google image: garage door spring repair injury )

When your garage door has more than one spring and one breaks or loses its tension, it is recommended that you replace all of the torsion springs at once to prevent further damage to the garage door and its components.

Even though the garage door will function (if you decide to replace one), you may risk having the older springs break, causing a heavier load on the new spring and degrading its life span, necessitating garage door repair.

In some extreme cases, the garage door would drop without warning with no safety support, causing damage to the cables, panels, and the opener, not to mention what and who may be underneath it when the spring snaps.

Save yourself the time and money; get them all replaced at once!

You should contact your local garage door repair company if you have any questions regarding spring or any other repairs to your garage door before you attempt them yourself.
