If you notice unusual movements in your garage door, broken or damaged springs could be the source. Various signs may indicate your springs are causing issues. 

Hire a professional for safe and efficient garage door repair when you have a broken spring to protect yourself and prevent further damage.

Signs Your Garage Spring Is Broken

Garage door springs can wear or become damaged over time, much like other mechanical parts. Signs of broken or damaged springs include:

  • Unusual movements: If springs break, your garage door may jerk or close faster than it did before.
  • Partial or slow opening: When your garage door spring breaks or stops working, the door may not open more than a few inches.
  • Crooked doors: When a garage door spring is damaged or broken, it can prevent the door from opening correctly.

Contact a repair service if you notice these problems or any other unusual issues, such as loose cables or an emergency release that doesn’t work.

Types of Garage Door Springs

Garage doors use two primary types of springs: extension and torsion springs. Knowing the basics of these two spring types can help you understand how your garage door works: 

  • Extension springs: These are on the sides of your garage doors or between the track and the ceiling. As the garage door opens or closes, the springs expand or contract.
  • Torsion springs: This type of spring is on the metal piece above the opening of your garage. Torsion springs twist to get your garage door to move up and down.

Importance of Professional Spring Replacement

Professional services offer a secure spring repair solution that can save you money by providing an effective repair that lasts. Garage doors are heavy and require experienced personnel trained to handle jobs such as spring repair or replacement safely and with precision. 

Professional garage door replacement can prevent further damage and give you a lasting solution.
