Your garage door springs are responsible for the hard work involved in hauling your door up and down every day. These springs are put under immense pressure each time they’re used, and are subject to a great of deal of force. They’re built to last but the intense strain they’re subjected to leads to wear and tear over time. If they should break, your door will become unusable so it’s essential to get them replaced as quickly as possible.
Why Do They Break?
The most common reason for spring failure is wear. Each time your door opens, the springs carry the door’s weight. This puts them under a lot of pressure, and over time they’ll start to lose strength. If they continue to wear, springs can reach a point where they’re unable to bear the load any longer, and they’ll snap.
Can I Avoid Them Breaking?
Springs often give warning signs that they’re starting to wear out. If you notice that your door is wobbling when it moves, or making a lot of noise, this is often a sign that the springs are losing strength. Similarly, if your door isn’t able to support its own weight, this also often means that the springs are wearing out - it’s time to contact our team of professional experts.
