Oh, Snap! Fixing Garage Door Springs
When a garage door spring finally goes, you’ll know it. Either because you’ll hear it go off, notice your garage door is off-track, or because it was up close and personal. In any case, there are the two infamous scenarios that lead to a broken garage door spring:
- Old extension springs giving up.
Broken garage door springs get their notoriety as a result of the failing extension springs in old-model garages. By using nothing but an unprotected metal spring to do the heavy lifting, old garage doors weren’t exactly built with safety in mind.
And whether it was due to poor installation, or mid-century manufacturing, springs could easily break loose and cause serious harm to people in their way. Thankfully, garage door springs have improved drastically, and the likelihood of a projectile spring has all but disappeared.
- DIY mishaps on modern springs.
These days, most of the incidents involving modern garage door springs happen because homeowners take it upon themselves to fix the garage door.
While there’s a lot of information out there, and even though modern torsion springs or extension springs are a whole lot safer, the process is still one that’s better left to a professional who knows the ins and outs of handling garage doors.
