The garage door springs play a crucial role in proper garage door system functioning. Many homeowners tend to overlook the significance of these springs until an issue arises. The springs bear a heavy load each time the door is opened or closed, making them susceptible to wear and tear. When a spring breaks or wears out, it can prevent the garage door from opening. Therefore, prompt replacement is essential.

Springs act as counterweights, supplying the necessary force to raise and lower the garage door. Regrettably, all springs will eventually fail. Springs that have fractured or completely lost their tension cannot be fixed. Attempting to replace or repair broken springs is extremely dangerous! So do not do this!

Several indicators can help you determine if your door’s spring is broken:

  1. The door is hard to raise
  2. The door makes a lot of noise as it operates

  4. There is a gap in the spring
