The springs of your garage door are perhaps its most important components; they bear the full weight of the door every time it’s raised or lowered, and are put under intense pressure day after day. Springs will wear out over time, and therefore, unsurprisingly, they have a finite lifespan. When they start to lose their effectiveness it’s essential to get them replaced as soon as possible.
Warning Signs to Watch Out For
As the springs start to lose strength they’ll often give warning signs, and homeowners should be on the lookout for any indication that these components are in need of replacement. Common issues are a door that feels weak or wobbly, or one that squeaks while it's going up and down.
Safe and Professional Handling
It can be tempting to take on the task of replacing your springs on your own, but we strongly advise against this; these components are under a great deal of tension, and if this tension isn’t released in a controlled way it’s possible for them to damage and/or injure anything or anyone in their vicinity.
Replacing and Repairing
Because springs can potentially be dangerous when they fail, our team always advises homeowners to seek replacement at the earliest sign. Even if the one can avoid getting hurt by the spring itself, the door panels will collapse, potentially damaging anything and anyone nearby.
Modern Replacement Options
We stock a wide variety of modern garage door springs which make use of the latest corrosion-resistant coating to extend their lifespan. These modern varieties are far stronger and more durable than older ones, and are a great investment if your door uses old components.
