Sure Signs Your Garage Door Spring Needs Replacing
Garage door springs, like any other moving part, can, unfortunately, wear out. And since your spring is there to lift your garage door, wearing and breaking springs can cause a major inconvenience. The good news is that you can often detect a problem with a failing garage door spring well before the spring actually breaks or wears to the point where it's unusable.
Here are some signs that it might be time to get them replaced.
Noisy Garage Door Opener
No garage door is silent when it opens and closes, but as with cars, squeals and straining sounds are a sure sign that something is amiss. When the garage door springs start to wear out, they're not pulling up the weight of the door as well anymore. For this reason, old springs force the electric door opener to work harder to lift the door.
A Very Heavy Garage Door
If one or more springs breaks completely, you'll find that even your gym membership won't help you much when you go to lift the door by hand. Even your automatic garage door opener won't be able to help you much, and may even not at all.
A Sound Like A Gunshot
When a garage door spring breaks, it can make a sound like a gunshot or a car misfiring, and of course, this will happen when the door is lifting and the spring is trying to handle a full load. As a result, the door can suddenly slam shut when you need it open the most, possibly landing on your shiny new car or even you.
Garage door springs will of course wear out faster if people are coming and going often versus if a single driver is using the garage door once or twice per day. If years have passed and your garage door is constantly getting a workout, having a professional take a look at the spring's condition or simply replacing the spring can save you time and frustration.
If you suspect that your garage door spring is on the fritz or reaching the end of its usable life, don't try to repair it yourself. This is a dangerous task that can result in severe injury since the spring system is holding onto a lot of tension. Calling a professional will save you a medical bill or two.
