3 Signs You Might Need Garage Spring Repair
The springs that help your garage door operate smoothly are extremely important. When they become damaged, break, or start to wear out, you’ll likely find that your door isn’t performing the way you want it to. Here are three of the biggest signs that it could be time to call a professional for garage spring repair.
1. Excessive squeaking when using your garage door
All garage doors make some noise, and expecting them to be silent isn’t realistic. But if your garage door is squeaking a lot more than normal, and if lubrication hasn’t helped reduce the noise, it’s possible that the springs are wearing out. Having them checked can give you the answer you need, so you can get them repaired or replaced if necessary.
2. The door won't open, even with the emergency release
Broken springs can stop a garage door from opening, even if you override the electric opener and try to open the door manually. If the door won’t open at all, or if the door is really heavy if you try to open it on your own, you could be dealing with a broken spring. Calling the professionals to take a look can give you information, and get your door working again.
3. A door that appears crooked or off track
If one spring is going bad, it won’t be under the same level of tension as the other spring. That can lead to the garage door appearing crooked, or like it’s off the track. Operating that way can damage your door, so it’s best to get it repaired.
If you’re experiencing problems with your garage door spring, that’s not something you want to handle on your own. Springs are under a lot of tension, and they can be very dangerous. It’s best to leave the repair of a broken or damaged garage door spring to professionals, in order to keep yourself safe and make sure the repair is done right.
