Frequently asked questions:

Can I replace a garage door spring myself?

The raising system for garage doors is powered by torsion or tension springs. Springs enable garage doors to rise and fall. The garage door won’t operate if the springs are not properly tensioned or if the spring is broken. 

Never attempt to lift a garage door or tamper with the springs. Hardwood garage doors can weigh anything from 140 kg to 200 kg, and their spring loads are always very strong. Anything that even remotely goes wrong might be quite dangerous.

How do I know what kind of spring I need for my garage door?

Sectional garage doors frequently have torsion springs. Depending on a variety of variables, such as the weight or size of the door, there may be one to four of these. A single sectional garage door typically requires one spring, while a double sectional garage door often requires two springs. 

For the system to function at its best, the spring’s rating, which is commonly indicated in kilos, should be comparable to the weight of the door.

Can you open a garage door with a broken spring?

The average lifespan of a Garage Door Spring is 10000 cycles; it falls from 5 to 10 years depending on automated garage door operation. When it reaches the end of its lifespan, it breaks, making a loud pop sound and preventing the garage door from moving. Call us now to arrange for a replacement. 

We use sturdy springs to replace worn and damaged ones. It is advised to swap out both springs. If one is changed, the other will eventually fail as well.
