Garage Door SpringsBack To Our Services
Garage door springs are one of the hardest working parts of your automatic doors, yet many owners neglect to have them replaced in time when they start to show signs of damage. These crucial components are responsible for evenly supporting the significant weight of the door itself, and also assist it with correct balancing which allows it to work smoothly and seamlessly. Installed in pairs on opposite ends of the door, two springs are required to evenly distribute its bulk. So when one or both of the springs show signs of weakness or fail outright, it can have a negative impact on the workings of the door.
Where does the damage come from?
Much of the damage suffered by springs is often unavoidable. The stress of their task in supporting the door takes its toll over time, resulting in the gradual wearing down of the springs. Aside from this, galvanic corrosion from contact with electrified metals, rust from damp and harsh weather conditions and even minor accidents all have their part to play in the deterioration of springs. If yours are showing any signs of trouble for any of the abovementioned reasons, then now is the time to have your springs replaced by a professional technician.
What Happens if only One Spring Breaks
Since springs are installed in pairs, it can be tempting to let a single spring do the job of two when one of them fails. This could however lead to further problems such as misalignments and even the complete failure of your door altogether. So when you need to fix a broken door spring, don’t delay and wait for the problem to worsen, have it seen to immediately.
