Weak Garage Door Spring07/08/2015 Back To Blog
The problem with weak garage door springs is that they can cause the other parts of your door to weaken. This will require more garage door repairs in order for it to continue working properly. The worst thing that can happen is that someone is harmed by a faulty spring. When you have a weak spring, the eventuality is that it will break if you do not have it repaired or replaced. This can then result in someone being harmed by a fallen door. The spring will be too weak to hold the weight of the door and thus the door will just fall down. In some cases, the door will not raise up when you attempt to open it. The best way to avoid the inconvenience of a non-operative garage door is to have the spring repaired or replaced at the first sign of it weakening.
Save Money on Repairs
We cannot stress the importance of having repairs made quickly when dealing with a weak spring. Not only does it help you avoid being inconvenienced or harmed but saves a substantial amount of money. We would never suggest people try to handle garage door spring repairs or replacements on their own just to save a buck or two. This is a dangerous job that should be taken care of by a professional with the appropriate qualifications and skills. You save money when repairs are made right away because it doesn’t wear on the other parts of the garage door. When you have an undetected problem, it usually results in the other parts of the door doing double duty. This means they work harder trying to compensate for a weak spring. Once this occurs, you’ll likely need more than just the springs repaired.
Another way to save money on garage door spring repairs is to have maintenance performed regularly. If you are busy and do not want this household chore to fall by the wayside it is a good idea to have regular, routine maintenance performed so the problem is detected immediately. This will allow you to have the problem taken care of before it turns into a bigger more costly repair job.
