Garage door springs are one of the crucial components of your garage door system. Not only does it help with the opening and closing mechanism, but it ensures that your door opens safely and stays open. Thus, you may enter and exit your garage without problems. That, unfortunately, can ultimately lead to it breaking completely and rendering your opener useless.

What Happens When Garage Door Springs Break?

Extension springs and torsion springs are integral to the function of your garage door opener. These springs are necessary for your opener to properly open or close your garage door. Unfortunately, these springs can break, leading to serious issues ranging from damage to personal safety and increased wear on the parts that open and close the door.

Unpredictable garage door behavior can pose a serious threat to anyone nearby. So it is important to contact a repair service as soon as you observe problems with your springs to avoid potential accidents. You can also check them yourself to ensure they are in good condition—they should be one solid piece. A visual inspection can help you identify any issues that need to be addressed.

What to Avoid Following Spring Break

Your garage door is heavy and will not work properly with a broken spring. Do not try to lift the door manually because it could fall or close suddenly; that would be dangerous. Furthermore, dealing with broken springs on your own can be costly. Trying to replace springs yourself can cause them to break down much faster.
