Garage Door Spring Repair

Garage door springs play a vital role in the smooth operation of your garage door. They counterbalance the door’s weight, making it easier to open and close. However, garage door springs can break due to several reasons.

Reasons for Garage Door Springs Breaking

  • Wear and tear: With regular use, springs experience wear and tear, eventually leading to breakage
  • Rust and corrosion: Rust can develop on the springs over time, causing them to weaken and break
  • Improper maintenance: Lack of regular maintenance, such as lubrication, can shorten the lifespan of garage door springs
  • Fluctuating temperatures: Extreme temperature changes can cause the metal in the springs to expand and contract, leading to breakage
  • Incorrect installation: Poorly installed or inappropriate springs can cause them to break prematurely

How to Choose Garage Door Spring

Selecting the appropriate garage door spring is crucial for the proper functioning of your garage door. Here are some factors to consider when choosing a new spring:

  • Spring Length: Measure the length of your existing spring to determine the appropriate replacement size
  • Diameter: The diameter of the spring wire should be consistent with the specifications of your garage door system
  • Direction of the coil: Springs come in two types โ€“ left-wound and right-wound. It is essential to choose the correct winding direction for your door
  • Spring type: There are two main types of garage door springs โ€“ torsion and extension. Ensure that you select the right type for your specific garage door.

Consulting a professional is highly recommended when choosing a new spring, as incorrect selection can lead to further issues. You can also make a call at CATR ACRT Garages and receive a professional consultation about garage door spring.
