Garage door spring repair is one of the most common repairs on a garage door, because the spring is one of the most important elements within the door. The spring helps counteract the heavy door weight when raising the door and slows the door when closing, which prevents damage to the door. It also helps make the garage door opener a small and reasonable size, as the relatively small motor can lift the spring assisted garage door.
Garage door springs cycle hundreds and sometimes even thousands of times each year – in both cold and hot temperatures. With all these cycles the highly tempered steel springs eventually fatigue and break and that’s when it creates a problem.
When the garage spring breaks it becomes nearly impossible to get into or out of the garage. Chances are that when your spring breaks you have just opened your door and now you are unable to close the door. This can create a safety issue and the only way to fix it is through garage door spring repair.
