We hear this all the time… Your garage door springs are easily the most important and most dangerous part of your door. The springs are what open your door.. the opener is simply the guide. Springs do wear out over time and when they break, injury can result. If you have an older garage door, have your springs inspected by a trained and certified technician and replaced if needed. If your door has two springs, have both replaced even if one is not broken. Why? Remember that the second spring has been operating the same length of time as the broken one. Replacing both springs will not only prevent any damage caused by the breaking of the second spring, but also keep your door working efficiently. Ask your door professional for high cycle, commercial quality springs (30,000 cycles or more). They’ll last much longer and have a much longer warranty. Have additional questions? Get answers.
