Should You Attempt a DIY Fix of Your Broken Spring?

Garage Door Malfunctions Can Cause Major Headaches

People greatly depend on their garage doors, maybe even more then they realize. They constantly open and close them throughout the day. Each and every day, they raise it first thing in the morning, backing out their van to get their kids to school on time and themselves to their job. They close it at night after a hard day’s work in the fields, securing their tractors and farm equipment in the barn. The door goes up and down all day long at the auto shop, as the mechanics circulate through the vehicles they fix. Countless people heavily rely on their garage doors, and probably take them for granted.

Garage doors are not infallible, however. As the years and decades go by, the mechanical components will wear down, and unfortunately, their door will malfunction or completely break down. All those conveniences they took for granted before will become readily evident, and the malfunction will cause some headaches. That garage door will become stuck closed, or stuck open, or worse yet, half-open.

This is not a situation anyone wants to sit on. It’s time for repairs. It’s time to call an expert.

Why is quickly repairing a broken spring so important?

Broken Springs are an Immediate, Important Concern

The springs play an important role in the function of your door. They may appear basic in the whole mechanical scheme, but they are vital in raising and lowering your door. Simply put, the tension on those springs cancels out gravity and eases the load for the automatic opener as it lifts and lowers the door.

There is no indicator at all – nothing to watch for – to give any clues that a spring is wearing out and breaking down, but be certain that the daily grind of opening and closing that door will take its toll. And eventually, and maybe even suddenly, you will have a broken spring. And with a broken spring, your door will not move.

So what can someone do when it’s time to repair a broken spring?
