A client from Waterloo, NE, called Titan Garage Doors NE for help with a snapped garage door spring. Our specialist inspected the broken torsion spring and determined that the breakage was due to wear and tear. After years of use, the spring could not handle the tension anymore. We recommended a stronger and longer-lasting torsion spring and got to work immediately. The garage door spring replacement only took us an hour to complete. After some testing, the garage door was back in working condition. The client was very grateful for our quick response.
Most people do not realize their garage door springs' importance until they stop working. These springs allow your door to open and close smoothly, so it can be a big problem when they fail. Several things indicate that your garage door springs are failing, as described below.
Sudden, loud noises in your garage warrant investigation. Unwinding springs are most likely responsible for the noise you hear. When springs break, they can create a loud crashing sound even though the door may not have fallen.
Spring damage is often most evident in gaps appearing in the coils. These gaps appear when springs are not tightly wrapped and joined together from top to bottom.
The garage door opener and the torsion spring are important parts of the garage door system. They help keep the door panels securely in place and counteract the force of gravity. However, when the spring breaks, the door can come crashing down.
When a garage door spring is snapped, the door will become crooked as it moves up or down the track. It is due to an uneven distribution of weight.
The pulleys and cables can become loose when a garage door spring snaps. As a result, you may see slack cables hanging down from the ceiling.
One way to tell that your door's spring is broken is when the top panel starts to bend when you try opening the door. It is because the opener does not have enough power to lift the door panels without properly working springs.
If the garage door spring breaks, the garage door can still open, but it will need extra labor. Since the broken spring makes the garage door heavier, using your garage door opener could cause the motor to burn out.
If your garage door spring is broken, we advise against trying to open it. Call a garage door repair company immediately for help. However, if you have to open the door to get your car out, heed these safety precautions:
