Questions to Ask When Garage Door Spring Breaks

Are you finding it so hard to lift and open your garage door? Or the door won’t open no matter how hard you try? If you are faced with any of these conditions, your garage door spring could be defective or completely damaged. And if you’re already aware that the spring is at fault, chances are you have some lingering thoughts in your head.

Below are some possible questions you may want answered when your garage door spring breaks off and the answers to them.

What is a Garage Door Spring?

A garage door spring is a part of your garage door mechanisms that withstands the torque of the door. Without this tiny spring, it will be impossible or difficult to lift and open your garage door.

How Much Would Replacement Costs Me?

After you realized your garage door springs need to be replaced, the first question you’re more likely to ask will revolve around the costs of replacement. The answer, however, depends on the type of spring you intend to buy. 

A typical extension spring will cost somewhere between twenty to thirty bucks, while a durable torso spring can be priced anywhere between seventy to a hundred bucks. While the great price tag of the latter might seem intimidating at first, investing in a torso spring will pay off in the end as it has impressive strength that can withstand more use.

How Often Should I Replace My Garage Door Springs?

Depending on the frequency of use, your weather condition during the year, and how well-maintained the springs, and many other factors, you may have to change your springs often. But do not wait until your garage door spring breaks before making the replacement. 

Even if your garage door continues to open and shut with a defective spring, replace them immediately to save yourself of potential headaches and heartaches. You never know if a tired spring will suddenly break off when you or a loved one is under it.

How Can I Extend the Lifespan of My Garage Door?

Due to rust and regular wear, replacing your garage door springs is inevitable. But you can extend the lifespan of the springs by cleaning them twice every year. Special tools or training is not required for the cleaning process. You simply spray the springs with WD-40 or any other suitable lubricant. Letting rust develop in the springs is one of the reasons for a short-lived garage door spring.

Should I Replace My Garage Door Spring Myself?

Replacing your garage doors might save you some bucks. While tons of home repairs require little to no handyman skills, replacing a garage door spring is none of them. Without the required skills and experience, you could get yourself injured under a falling heavy garage door or have your fingers crushed in a tightly coiled metal spring.

Professionals who handle this kind of work sometimes have spent a great deal of time learning and mastering how to do it properly.  Reading a couple of instructions online wouldn’t make you an expert in an hour or a few days. Because of the delicate nature of replacing garage door springs, let a competent professional handle the job.
