Broken Garage Door Springs

Broken Garage Door Springs

Every part of your home requires a bit of TLC and maintenance at times, which also applies to your garage doors. Your garage is an important feature of your home as it provides valuable storage space but also ensures that your possessions are kept safe at all times. At Right Choice Doors our priority is to fix any broken garage door springs so that you can get on with the rest of your day and know that your car or personal possessions are safe from prying eyes at all times. 

How To Know If Your Garage Door Springs Are Broken? 

You will notice that something is amiss when you go to open your garage door and find that it does not open or shut correctly like it normally would. 

You Have a Heavy Door

The first problem that you might notice is that your door feels particularly heavy when you attempt to open or shut it. Normally it should open or close with ease but when it feels heavy, this can be an indication that your garage door springs are either worn out or are broken. 

There Is a Gap In The Spring 

This is a more noticeable sign of wear and tear, when a gap in the spring emerges. Your garage door springs should be able to move smoothly when you want to open or shut the door, but if there is a visible gap that was not there before then it can indicate that it is time to get it fixed. 

You Have Loose Cables 

When your garage door is functioning well, the cables that help to open and shut your door should be in place. If you notice that they start to hang loosely then it could be that your garage door springs are broken and need replacing completely. The garage door springs should be able to keep your cables in place if they are working normally, so if you notice that they are really loose then it is time to fix your garage door springs. 

The Importance of a Fully Functioning Garage Door Spring 

The springs form an important part of your garage door as this is what enables your door to open and shut easily. Your garage door will either have a torsion spring or an extension spring fitted. Torsion springs are likely to be located above your garage door and are typically used for larger-sized garages. Whereas an extension spring will typically be on one side of your garage door or sitting above the tracks or cable system. So if this starts to malfunction it can be dangerous to yourself or your family as a faulty garage door spring could cause you serious harm or injury if not looked at by a professional.  

 

 

Signs That Your Garage Door Springs Are Breaking

In order to prevent any injuries to yourself or your family you want to check that your garage door is able to open and close with ease. You will notice that there is a problem with your garage door spring if you notice any of the following. 

A Leaning door

Your garage door should be aligned at all times, so if you notice that it is starting to lean then this could be an indication of a faulty garage door spring that needs replacing. 

Squeaky Spring Noise

If the spring starts to make a squeaking noise every time you open your garage door then it could be time to check it. It might be a sign that your garage door spring is starting to wear down drastically which could easily snap. 

 

Anything that does not appear normal should be checked out by a member of our team immediately as it can be very dangerous if the garage door springs were to suddenly snap away. By getting in contact with us you can rest assured that we will fix your garage door spring so that you can continue with the rest of your day, knowing that yourself or your family are safe from any garage door injuries.

Our garage door broke and my husband tried to DIY it so it would close. It ended up doing more damage than good but luckily I asked our neighborhood Facebook page of who to call and hands down they led me to Kyle with Right Choice Doors. Not only did he respond quickly, but he came out the very next day. Even offered to come out that night! He help fix it enough to get my car out then fit me in to replace the whole door and mechanisms the day after! He was very professional and very knowledgeable! He's one of the friendliest service people I've every met! Thanks Kyle! We'll definitely call you for any future garage door needs!

Right Choice Doors responds quickly, knows what they are doing, and provides quality craftmanship - even when working on doors and systems that they did not install. About 12 years ago, the springs broke on the garage door of my home. I had another company replace the spring, and paid extra for "..oversized springs that would last forever". But these replacement springs broke after just 12 years. This time, I contacted Right Choice Doors, and they quickly responded. Kyle (from Right Choice Doors) examined my door, springs, and the rest of door system. He explained to me that the replacement spring diameter was too small, and that the springs had been overtightened to have enough tension - which had caused the premature failure. Kyle took the time to select the correct diameter of spring and also examined the overall condition of the door and tracks. He observed issues with some of the rollers and replaced them; he also helped straighten and align the tracks (which had gotten bent over the years). One of the final touches that I liked was when Kyle had mostly finished but the door was still disconnected from the motor, that he used just 2 fingers to lift the door to verify that everything was properly balanced and would not overload the motor when it was connected.

Kyle came out to fix my garage door sensors. They were not working properly and making it so my garage door would not close when the sun would shine on them. He was so kind and friendly and reasonably priced! He went above and beyond fixing prior mistakes made (by Advanced Door). I will be recommending Right Choice Doors to all of my family and friends!
