Garage Door Spring Repair Near You

Is your garage door stuck or moving slowly? Chances are, you need a garage door spring replacement. As one of the most important components of the garage door, springs cause lots of issues when out of commission. 

Garage door springs are subjected to extreme strain, which puts a time limit on their lifespan. Standard torsion springs are known to last anywhere from 5-15 years, depending on how often they’re in use. When they snap, they make a loud, gun-shot-like noise. This can be pretty frightening, but rest assured that it’s just a broken garage door spring. After this happens, we recommend that you stop using your garage door and stay away from the broken spring. Springs, even after they’ve snapped, still hold a lot of tension that holds the potential to severely injure you. When you have a broken spring, it’s important that you call us to schedule a garage door spring replacement as quickly as possible.

Why You Shouldn’t Delay Spring Replacement

Garage door springs take on the weight of the garage door so it can move evenly. Springs partner with cables to balance the garage door and allow movement to happen. Because of this critical function, broken garage door springs can cause a lot of issues. The longer they go unrepaired, the more damage can occur. 

  1. Safety: The number one reason to get your springs repaired is because of the injury risk. With broken garage door springs, your garage door will move unreliably. It may start to move slowly, at an angle, or even slam shut. But because family members and pets are frequently in the garage, safety should be your number one priority. This is why we always recommend calling professionals for garage door spring replacement in Lancaster, Ohio. 
  2. Damage: If you continue using a garage door with a broken spring, it’s likely that it will negatively affect other parts. For example, the garage door opener will have to take on an unhealthy amount of strain to power the movement by itself. This can easily lead to burnout, which may mean that you need premature garage door opener repair or replacement
  3. Cost: Broken garage door springs can lead to other broken parts, which leads to higher repair costs. If your garage door is moving inconsistently, it can also slam shut and damage your car or other objects in the garage. Instead, schedule garage door spring replacement at the first sign on an issue.

Garage Door Repair Lancaster Ohio

Yes, we will generally replace both springs together. It’s likely that they were installed at the same time, which means they both have similar lifespans. If one spring breaks, the other spring will soon follow. To avoid a return trip in the near future, we will replace both garage door springs at the same time.

We strongly recommend that you leave garage door spring replacement to the professionals. Because it’s such a crucial and dangerous garage repair, it can cause lots of issues when done incorrectly. Dr. Door works diligently to offer affordable garage door spring replacement. 

Torsion springs work by using a type of physical force called torque, which rotates during movement. These are installed above the garage door horizontally. Extension springs stretch to take on the weight of the garage door and normally come in sets of two. These are located on either side of the garage doors, stretching vertically.
