Have you been experiencing problems with your garage door lately? Not only is it inconvenient, but it can leave your home more vulnerable. Sometimes the root of the issue is a broken spring. In fact, here at Overhead Door Co. of Greater Cincinnati, we often hear “my garage door spring broke,” and we can help!
Garage Door Springs
The motor can’t lift the garage door itself—the springs help it lift the door. But they can only wind and unwind so many times. How many times the door opens and closes usually determines how long the spring will last. When these springs snap, the motor can no longer lift the door on its own.
There are two types of springs:
- Extension springs, which are parallel to the track
- Torsion springs, which are parallel to the door
Do You Have a Broken Garage Door Spring?
Common signs that indicate there may be a problem with your garage door’s springs include:
- The door can’t open or close
- The door makes loud noises when operating
- The door doesn’t operate smoothly (indicates that the spring system could be out of balance)
If your garage door spring is broken—or you don’t know what the problem is but your door doesn’t work properly—call local professionals right away. A garage door that isn’t working isn’t something that can wait!
