Garage door springs are possibly the most important component in any manual or electric door since they do most of the work. They support the extreme weight of the door both when it is in operation and when it is not, providing smooth lifting action to make it work seamlessly, and holding the system in place to ensure that it is being used safely. That is why it is so important to make sure that they are properly looked after.
Keep Your Springs In Good Health
Conducting broken spring replacement is not an overly complicated procedure for experienced hands, though it is best handled by a professional technician. If you have started noticing any cracks from stress, rust or wear signs on your springs, then it is probably time to have them changed. Avoid relying on the functionality of a single spring if one of them has failed – and most likely you won't be able to. See, the springs divide the door's weight, so a single spring cannot support it on its own. If it stopped the door from collapsing, it is still highly recommended to change it as soon as possible along with the broken one.
There is a cautionary note about torsion coil springs. Since they are wound so tightly, these components hold a mind-boggling amount of pressure. When these snap, or are being worked on, the sudden release of this pressure could send the spring flying, causing possible injuries or damages to its surroundings.
