How Do You Know If You Need Garage Door Spring Replacement?
Your garage door torsion springs are responsible for lifting a door that probably weighs hundreds of pounds. Trying to replace a broken garage door spring by yourself can be very dangerous and cause injury, so if you do suspect your spring is broken, you should call a professional with experience in safe garage door torsion spring repair right away. If you know that one of your torsion springs is broken, you should call for a replacement immediately.
While your door may still open and close with one good spring, it’s extremely unsafe to rely on that one spring. If it broke, your door could come down suddenly and cause serious damage or injury. If you’re not sure whether or not you have a broken torsion spring, look for the following warning signs.
Warning Signs To Look Out For if You Need a Garage Door Spring Repair
