Answers To Common Questions
What should I do if my garage door spring breaks?
The first thing to do is to make sure you don't try to use the door. A broken garage door spring is no joke and you should avoid trying to handle it if you lack the right tools or experience. Without the spring, moving the garage door will be much harder, and sometimes even impossible. Since this door can weigh more than a heavyweight boxer, it's better not to mess with it and to call a professional spring repair specialists. Even if you consider yourself a garage door DIY enthusiast, a broken spring shouldn't be where you earn your stripes.
How long do garage door springs last?
Garage door spring service lives are measured in cycles, with each cycle representing one full opening and closing of the door. As a general rule, extension springs tend to last for about five thousand cycles, which tends to be around four to seven years. Torsion springs usually last for twice as long, i.e. ten thousand cycles, and ten to fifteen years, give or take. The service life expectancy of your garage door springs depends on how much you use the door, but also how well you take care of these crucial parts. Regular lubrication and tension adjustments will help reduce wear and tear and make the springs last a lot longer than they otherwise would. Of course, while lubricating a garage door spring is something you can do yourself, when it comes to tension adjustment, or replacement, you better leave it to the pros.
