It’s a bad idea to try opening an overhead garage door on a broken spring. Best case scenario, you’ll inflict unnecessary wear and tear on the lift cables and opener that will cause them to break down too. Worst case, you could have a catastrophic door failure that might cause vehicle damage or even personal injury. That said, trying to replace a broken garage door spring without professional training is even riskier! Luckily, experienced spring replacement technicians are available at short notice and at reasonable prices. For Stamford area garage door owners, new springs are always less than a day away when you need them!
Why Garage Door Springs Break
Some homeowners wonder if they did something wrong when one of their garage door springs breaks. In truth, while getting regular maintenance and upkeep for your garage door might increase their lifespan somewhat, these springs are not expected to last forever. Every model of garage door spring has an estimated lifespan in opening-closing cycles that it will break at the end of. Years of lifting all that heavy weight and sitting under high-tension compression will wear anything down! Assuming you open your garage door an average of twice per day, a cheap spring lasts from 4-9 years, while higher quality ones last up to 15. In any case, you will need to replace them eventually, and when you do you’ll need professional expertise.
