Lifting the Impossible
The Garage Door Spring is the super heavyweight lifter of your garage door system. While holding the heavy weight of the garage door and keeping it balanced, the spring allows you and/or your garage door opener to easily raise and lower the garage door. Every time that your garage door goes up and down the spring goes in one cycle. It depends on the type of spring your garage door has, after so many cycles/uses it will eventually break.
Better Safe than Sorry
Once the garage door spring breaks, there is nothing left to hold the weight of your garage door and it could become extremely dangerous. When that happens, stand clear and do not try to operate the garage door.
Due to the garage door’s heavy weight, operating it with a broken spring can cause severe damage to the garage door system components.”
Fear not, a broken spring can be replaced and the garage door system can be completely repaired. If your garage door system has more than one spring, all springs should be replaced since all of them went the same amount of cycles.
